    Hi,

    My mother bought a MacBook with Leopard and iLife '09 recently. Can I install Leopard and iLife '09 from the discs that came with that on my iMac?
    I had assumed not, but the guy at the store said I can.
    Is he right?

    Cheers.

    No. The discs that come with computer are specific to that computer. Not going to work.

    Also, please search before you post because this has been discussed before.

    Duff-Man says....I wish I had a dollar for every time this question has been asked - I could retire very wealthy.

    No, having the discs from one Mac does *not* entitle you to install them wherever you please - that is in violation of the license agreement(s), and the discs shipped with each Mac are specific to that make/model.....oh yeah!

    but I got my answer much faster this way:D

    this is what I thought, but the guy was very convincing. I started to doubt myself.

    thanks chaps.

    I'm sure it wasn't someone from the Apple store who told you you can do that.

    not an "actual" Apple store, but an authorised reseller
