    Ok so I have a 2009 uMB which has the OS Installer Disk and Applications Disk, then I have a 2009 Mini which has both OS Installer and Applications, however I am trying to reformat my new HDD to use in my uMB but I can not find the disk, is the disk that came with the Mini the same application installer disk until I find the other disk, I need to get iLife 2009 on the uMB and that is what is on both Application installer disks.

    I am just not sure if Apple has different software by machine, or they are all the same.

    The "Application Disk" should work, you could try it first via inserting it into the other Mac and running the installer and see, if it would work.
    The "Installation Disk" will only work with the same Mac model though. Maybe you could get Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and use that?
