    my friend has a 2009 Mac book. I'm thinking about buying it. She doesn't have an original disk (CD/DVD). I can sign in as a guest but.......

    Need help.

    What version OS X is on there? Click the Apple at the top left then About this Mac.

    Boot into single user mode by hold command-s at start, then follow this process.
