    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!

    hahaha they have sent you the max os x disk and nothing else, the second disk is the ILife, you can simply downlaod that through torrent, not sure if that counts legal as you were supposed to get one yet did not.

    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.
