    I have searched the forums but couldn't find anything about this topic.....I just recieved my MacBook and I decided to do a clean install as I didn't need most of the bundled software......

    Anyway once this was done I found that both Front Row and Photo Booth are not installed....

    I tried to download and install Front Row off the Apple site it would not let me as it prompted for a iMac with built in Infa red then quit the installer.

    I was wondering if anyone could give me a few pointers on how to get these 2 apps installed again?

    Where did you do the clean install from? The restore disks or a retail copy of OSX? I think you need to use the restore disks. Other than that I'm not sure what to suggest!

    Use Pacifist to extract and install apps and other components from the disk/s that came with the MacBook.
