    Just got my Mac Mini 2Ghz. Great little machine.
    But what really stinks is:
    They sell you this machine with iLife 8. BUT..they only install it on the hard drive. No install disk is supplied. So if for any reason one has to format the hard drive it's bye bye to iLife 8.

    I phoned Apple and they first told me that this is all that you get. After speaking to 3 more people I got a person who ensured me it was on the install disks. But it's not.

    It stinks. I want a hard copy if I pay for it.

    Very poor attitude for an expensive company :mad::mad::mad:

    It will be on the install disks,

    To check pop in the disk and look for "install extras" or something like that and then it should be in one of the options.

    I'm sure if you use Pacifist, you can install the apps from your install disk.

    Funnily enough, my iLife apps for my MBP didn't come with a disk either but they're on the install disk if you know where and how to look. Not that I use any of them anyway.

    Do you even need to used Pacifist to install them? I thought you could install them from the actual disk through a method semi-described in my first post. I don't have them on hand to check though, just going from a distant memory.

    That's entirely possible... I've usually used Pacifist to reinstall third-party bundled apps that come with the Pro Macs. But if the option to install iLfe apps isn't there, Pacifist will do the trick.

    Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a way to install the apps via a simple self-run package file as has been possible in the past. If you want to re-install you need to run the "Install bundled applications only" installer from the first disk.

    Our MacBook that we ordered after the release of iLife '08 didn't even come with iLife '08 installed...should I check the install disks?

    I got my new iMac today and I was looking for the iLife 08 apps on the install disc, but I couldn't find them. I found a bundle install package, but I'm looking for the individual applications. Anybody know where they're located?
