    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.
