    This may be a stupid question, but I was wondering if I could use my new MBA's USB reinstall device to install Snow Leopard on my 2008 iMac? I guess it's both an ethical and practical question. First will it even work and if it does am I allowed to do it? Thanks in advance. Sincerely,

    Phil

    You will be able to boot from it, but not install from it.

    Thanks for the quick response. I figured there'd be a hitch :eek:
