    My 3 year old MacBook's ComboDrive doesn't work and I was wondering if I could Install Snow Leopard via a shared SuperDrive from a MacBook Pr over Wi-Fi. Is it possible to copy the installer locally and then install Snow Leopard or would I have to get an External SuperDrive?

    Thanks,

    Ams.

    Hi Ams

    I copied my SL disk onto a memory stick and installed it on my Macbook Air from there (family pack). So if you have a spare memory stick and access to the Macbook Pro then you can easily copy it and install without the need to purchase a Superdrive.
