[Snow] updating to snow using Target disc mode

I have a MBP that the dvd drive is out so I am using my iMac and target disc mode on the MBP to update to snow. I runs the update for about 10 minutes and then says the install will continue after a restart. The iMac tries to reboot but stops at the gray screen with the apple an no progress circle. 3 tries/ same result. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Are the iMac and MBP using the same processor family (Core 2 Duo)?

Try to boot in Verbose mode to see where it's getting stuck - hold down Command+V at startup.

Your better option would be to follow the remote install procedure for the Macbook Air: »support.apple.com/kb/PH6450

You can restore the Snow DVD to a USB drive and then just hold option and boot to that to install.

trying kitsune's sugestion and not getting pop up menu in step 7. have tried both wireless and ethernet.

the MBP is a 2.16 GHz C2D and the iMac is a 2.93 GHz Ci7 if that helps

I am able to open the install dvd across my network and the menu bar shows the install program is running, but I don't get the install window.

This is the install log from the installer.
