Seems silly to create a whole thread for this, but I need to know. See, my refurb blackbook came with no discs at all, so I called apple to request them. They sent me just one disc. It's labeled "Mac OS X Install Disc 1" but there is no "Disc 2."

Are macbooks (this is a 2.2 SR) supposed to come with more than one disc? Thanks!

That disk also contains all the drivers for Windows, if he plans on using bootcamp.

My friend had 3 (!) DVDs in his box when he bought the Macbook.

the first 2 DVDs were the standard ones: OS X Install Disc 1 and 2.

The 3rd DVD: surprise, surprise, it was an upgrade disc for Leopard. ;)

Only then did we realize that the restore DVDs were Tiger DVDs.
