MacBook Pro 2018 & Snow Leopard

Hello :

My 2009 MBP which worked on Snow Leopard completely died and have just purchased a new MBP 15” 2018.

I need to use a few applications for a short while from a bootable clone from MBP 2009 ( Snow Leopard ) until I purchase/subscribe new versions of the applications and completely move to High Sierra/Mojave.

So my question is will I be able to boot off the Snow Leopard external drive on the MBP 2018 ?

Will using such an old OS on the new MBP have any I’ll effects on the MBP’s Hardware ? I ask this as I recall reading sometime ago that Apple does not advise using OS-es older than what came with Computer, which in this case would be High Sierra. Maybe they are referring to installing an older OS than the computer came in and not booting off over an external drive.

Has anyone done this ?

Please advise.

Jai
