    So i install bootcamp on my mbp to play games. I went to best buy, and bought boarderlands. Installed boarderlands and...i need the dvd to play it! I thought it would be the steam version but it is not. I didnt not want to go through steam because connection is slow. What can i do to play it without the dvd? What if i wanted the steam one...what to do?

    You can go into Steam and click "+ADD GAME" in the lower left hand corner of the main window. Then select "Activate a game on Steam." It should transfer the license to Steam, however some are not allowed. YMMV.

    Most games aren't allowed. Out of the 1200 games on Steam only 20-30 or so are activated through Steam.

    But in the OP's case, it should work as the game is a Valve product.

    Just to clarify, the Borderlands you bought did not include a key? I'm a bit surprised, but I believe what Charlie and Dagless are saying. Not that it's going to help you get it registered, but I registered my copy of the original Half Life on Steam, and that title is not on the list of games in the link.

    As previously mentioned, a No-CD patch is what you need. Do a search on GameCopyWorld and note their disclaimer: GameCopyWorld only supplies Information and Tools necessary to make a PERSONAL BACKUP of legally owned Game CD/DVD's.

    in the case of borderlands, you can still play online with a nocd crack so its not going to change your experience when you play it.
