Sorry mad jew, it was me... if Im not naming my threads properly I'm stirring the S__T with lame questions...LOL! Sorry!mad jew said:I'm not sure how this retail box of Tiger thing popped up.
Just so long as there are as many licences (and you get one for the latest operating system at the time with the new computer) there's no real problem other than the fact the Restore DVD will not provide an optimised version of the OS on anything but the type of computer it came with.
I have seen this work using a Powerbook G4 Tiger disk to upgrade a Powermac G4 desktop. It worked just fine. Still illegal though.BlizzardBomb said:No you can't. A friend tried to install Tiger on his iBook using an iMac G5 Tiger Disk and his iBook rejected it.
Not to my knowledge. The install disk just checks to see that the computer meets system requirements and has enough disk space available.MacNut said:Doesn't Apple "Ping" the computer to see what OS you have installed to check for an illegal install.
