Ok, sorry I was confused by your initial message.
So to repeat and clarify
Do you mean you are trying to install Snow Leopard but this fails?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes. I have tried but the disk is ejected after about ten minutes

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, technically you can upgrade, so its an issue with the disk.
Can you clean the disk with a lint free cloth please. Make sure there are no smudges on it (also check closely for scratches)
Then put the disk back in and try to again run the upgrade
Let me know the results please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have done as you suggested and tried loading. It only goes for so long then it ejected the disk

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Thanks
It is the disk that has faulted, and when the computer cannot read this segment, it ejects it.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the disk to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, you can purchase a replacement disk here

This will then work.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
