Apple recommends that if you wish to go from 10.4 to 10.6 then you should purchase the <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Apple-MC581Z-A-Mac-10-6-3/dp/B002I0JKE2">10.6 Box Set</a>.<br />

<li>You will probably be asked to register with Apple upon restart.</li>

<b>Q: Can I upgrade directly from Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)?</b><br />
<i>A: Yes. Apple recommends purchasing the Mac Boxed Set for this
purpose, which will also update iLife (it is unknown at the time of this
writing whether older versions of iLife work with Snow Leopard) and
iWork. Also note that while it has been said that the $29 upgrade will
work with 10.4, it is not officially supported and may be in violation
of the licensing terms.</i><br />
<b>Q: What happened to the different install options? Can't I do an Archive & Install?</b><br />
<i>A: Apple has revamped the familiar installation options for Mac OS X.
You now have two choices, either a straight upgrade or a clean
install. Supposedly if you choose to do a straight upgrade, what
actually goes on behind the scenes is what was traditionally known as an
Archive & Install.</i><br />
<b>Q: Is there anything I can do to better prepare myself for the upgrade?</b><br />
<i>A: Yes. It is advisable to run a Verify/Repair Permissions and
Verify/Repair Disk in Disk Utility. You may also want to run the
maintenance tasks in <a href="http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/system_disk_utilities/onyx.html">Onyx</a>. And finally, it would be wise to get your applications up to date using a program like <a href="http://metaquark.de/appfresh/">AppFresh</a>.</i>
Hi Bobby You will need to get an OS X installation DVD. Try eBay.Don't go for anything lower than 10.4 (Tiger)10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) should run fine on this machine.Don't bother with 10.7 or 10.8
I have the same problem. I know that if you where to use one of the programs (on the link below) you could have the disk run and install but it would be a very long process and you would need to either purchase the programs mentioned in the link or torrent them (also you might need to upgrade your computer if you decide to take this route). The benefit to this is that you will be able to run Windows programs in the future.
You will not find drivers for this old scanner. Sorry but this scanner is not compatible with Tiger, Leopard, or Snow Leopard, and HP offers no drivers other than for OSx 8.0 & 9.0 which are 10 years old. Time to purchase a new scanner.
