I just bout a new Mac Pro Quad Core Intel Xeon and would like to use the install disk that came with it to upgrade my old Mac Pro. Will this disk work or do I need to buy a new Snow Leopard install disk?
Duff-Man says....please search the forums - this question is asked several times each week.
Having a disc does *not* entitle you to install it wherever you wish. In addition to the technical aspect of it being a machine specific disc there is also the *license agreement* that needs to be respected....oh yeah!
What was installed on your new Mac Pro?
The one I bought a few weeks back had Leopard installed on it and had a Snow Leopard disk in the box.
If this is the case then you can use the same Snow Leopard disk on your old machine and I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
If your new Mac Pro came with Snow Leopard installed on it then the restore disk will not work with your old machine.
on a side note, I would run to another forum for questions, this place is full of a holes. I mean run and don't look back.
