Anyone knows if the install cds shipped with the macbook pro C2D are able to install OSX on a PPC mac.
Thanks

No, it will not. However, you *can* pull the iLife and iWork apps out of the MacBook DVDs and put them on your PowerBook. I won't tell you how.

I haven't tried, but as far as I know it is Intel only.

Yes you are right i just tried, kernel panic at startup, so the cd just contains the intel version of os x.
Thanks and sorry for his quasi ueless thread
