    Hello,

    I just bought a brand new 13 inch Macbook Pro. Is it possible for me to use the Mac OS X install disk that came with it to install Leopard on my June 2006 Macbook, which is currently running Tiger? I've attempted to do so a couple of times and have gotten an error message.

    No. The disks are for the computer that is printed on them.

    Sorry, it can't be done. The install disks that come with a machine work only on that model.

    Duff-Man says....first of all, search the forums - this gets asked several times every week, almost daily. Second of all, in addition to the discs being machine specific there is the matter of the license agreement - having the disc does *not* entitle you to install it anywhere and everywhere. Buy a copy for your other Mac if you want to run 10.5 on it.....oh yeah!
