I have recently recieved a macbook, 1.8ghz core 2 duo. So it's the second gen 13" white one from 2007. Only has 512mb ram (FUCK). I was gonna pick up 3gb to replace it but I have no idea what the fuck is going on with macintosh computers except how to take them apart and add hardware.
The computer was "reformatted" from what the previous owner said. But to what end, I have no idea. It still has their account name and it won't let me update anything without their password. It's running OSX 10.5.8 btw.
So how do I completely redo this bitch, is it like reformatting winXP where I can use a jump drive or cd. It has a cdrw drive but not dvdrw so I don't have access to DVD. I have a stack of CDrw that somehow are either unreadable or unusable or just destroyed because they're like 6 years old. So I could try to burn an img on those.
If I can make any headway on this, I will replace the ram with 1gb and 2gb 240 pin sticks (motherboard won't read the 4gb anyway). If I do this, can I somehow get OSX10.6 without paying?
TL;DR: Macbook 2nd Gen OSX10.5.8, need to restore user password, reformat, and a later date get osx10.6 for free.
