    Here is my problem I bought a Mac Book a1181 but the only software on it is a copy of Windows 7 and I bought it because it was a Mac. I have only ever worked on PCs so I do not know if it is even posible to burn a bootable full install disc on a windows pc for a Mac. So I am here for help..Someone please help me out I feel as if this mac book is getting cheated out of its birth right.:confused:

    Apple will sell you a copy of the original discs that came with the machine or you can buy a copy of Snow Leopard. You could also go to an Apple store and they can help you.

    There are no legal downloads of OSx.

    There are but you need to be running Snow Leopard to take advantage. ;)
