    Hey Guys,

    I had a quick question, which I tried searching for but couldn't find. I have a late 2006 MB, and I just purchased a new MBP 2 weeks ago. After using the MBP for these past 2 weeks, I just love Leopard compared to Tiger. Contingent upon that, I have a question. Ignoring the EULA issues, can I use the MBP's 10.5.2 OS Disks to install that on my old 2006 MB? Is there some sort of block or issue that will be caused on my MB by doing this?


    Thanks

    No. The install disks are computer-specific and it's illegal.

    It won't work, I've tried before, if the disc you have are gray they won't work on any other machine than the one you bought them with. But if you really like leopard you should just buy the discs at the apple store, and have a legal copy :).

    Smart Apple. Not that I was expecting them to be that dumb anyways, lol. :D
