Mac Os X 10.6.0 Snow Leopard Retail Dvd ((TOP))
I can tell you from personal experience that a 2010 Mac Pro can be booted from a retail Snow leopard install disk. Mine came with Mountain Lion, and my first task was getting Snow Leopard onto it. After getting no useful info from first-tier support people, I was told by an Applecare support person who seemed to really know his stuff that even the 10.6.0 DVD would work, and it did. I have also used the 10.6.3 DVD. Like you, I was installing onto a new, freshly formatted drive, in my case a 2TB HGST.

I just erased my old snow leopard drive and downloaded Mavericks. It's installer did what I was expecting the 10.6 DVD to do. Went without a hitch. The 10.6 experience was way too slow by comparison. Like go brew a cup of coffee and read the paper sort of slow and still no joy.

WoodHeBe, you are my hero!!!!!for weeks i've been struggling to find a solution for my crashing MacBook Pro mid 2010, and my last resort was to roll back to the original OS - snow leopard, however because i did not have the install CD, no image i downloaded off the web worked for me - i almost gave up.well, thanks again.
