Install snow leopard over mavericks?

Posted on Nov 22, 2013 7:30 AM, Apple Support Communities - OS X Mavericks | discussions.apple.com

I am having issues with mavericks and want to revert back to mountain lion, but all i have is an OS X snow leopard 10.6 version disc.

 

my macbook pro has become so slow that i can't get anything done since updating to mavericks.... unfortunately, i didn't setup time machine up - so it looks like the only alternative would be to use the old install disc.

 

will that cause problems? is it actually possible to install the snow leopard and then go through the updating to the latest mountain lion?
