There are ways, you would find several methods with a little Google help...

 

A D430 will run Snow Leopard and Lion, the former performing better on that small machine in my opinion. Now, in the case of Snow Leopard, you can use Nawcom's ModCD to install a retail version of SL. It's an ISO image that you download off Nawcom's blog (or other dedicated spaces like OSX86.net) and that you burn to CD to get a bootable SL installer package.

 

By default, ModCD uses a legacy kernel, but it nevertheless gets you to a Snow Leopard installation. That can be kept and fine-tuned with our EDP tool or considered as a temporary base from which you then create a myHack installer to get the OSXL-supported full vanilla (mach kernel) installation, whether SL or Lion.

 

So, in summary, Nawcom's ModCD + retail Snow Leopard (DVD or USB key) will get you going/started.

Mmm, what you need is a retail DVD version as that includes all installer files. Anything else will probably fail.

 

I take it you did not get something like a dual-layer DVD that your D430 wouldn't read, right?
