    I have an early 2011 MBP with Snow Leopard (10.6.8) and I'm looking to Boot Camp Windows 7. As it turns out, I can't find the OSX install disc that came with it, but I do have the Snow Leopard OSX (10.6.3) install disc for a Mac Mini that I own. Is it possible to install the drivers off the Mac Mini disc when installing Win 7 on my MBP? Will any Snow Leopard install disc work when Boot Camping on MBP?

    EDIT: I found the Snow Leopard install for my dad's identical MBP. Are they interchangeable?

    You can use the mini's restore disk 1 to install the boot camp drivers for your MBP.

    However, since it is a snow leopard disk, it'll have Boot Camp version 3, not the version 4 which comes with Lion.

    Yes, if it's the exact same model it will work.
