    So I have a new Macbook Pro that I bought about 1 month ago (early Jan) that came with Tiger pre-installed. I then upgraded to Leopard with the drop-in DVD provided. Now I would like to go back to Tiger so I can run Pro Tools LE (only supported on Tiger).

    I have never done something like this before, downgrading that is. Can anybody help? :o

    well i think the only way you can do it is with an erase and install, but even then i think the mac OS installer will try to stop you by saying that it wont install an older version of the OS

    Must be an older MacBook Pro as all of the ones released after the end of Oct 2007 can't run anything other then Leopard.

    To downgrade you have to either do an Archive and Install or Erase and Install. Regardless of which you choose you should backup your data first.

    Macs released after Leopard was released can't run anything less then 10.5 from what Apple's government guys were saying back when the last round of MacBooks and MacBook Pros came out just after Leopard was released. They were trying to find a work around for this (firmware fix) as most government agencies haven't made the switch to 10.5 for a number of reasons (FBI testing and cert, DoD testing, NIST testing and cert, etc).
