    I just got a refurb MBP. It did not come with iLife 08, and I would like it. My friend got a new iMac today and he let me borrow the installation discs. I tried the "show hidden files" terminal command, and it did not work. How can I install iLife 08 from another computer's install disc?

    I've heard of people hacking it off of the disc, if it's on the disc, there must be a way..

    Install disks are machine specific, so an iMac disk would not work in a MBP. Plus, each disk only grants a license to be installed on the machine that the disk shipped with.

    We don't allow talk of piracy on Macrumors.

    I'm sure there are ways, but none that can be discussed on this forum.

    Forum Rules explicitly forbid the discussion of illicit activities.

    There is a quick easy way, I'm quite sure you will find it on another website.

    Sorry

    You're right. I shouldn't talk about piracy, it's not right, and I don't intend to do it. I will just buy a copy of iLife 08. Thanks anyway, and I apologize if I violated anything.
