    OK, the hard drive in my MacBook died, and I've replaced it with a new one. I need to reinstall Leopard on it, and I'd like to do so off a hard drive. However, I only have access to an XP and a Linux machine, and all the guides I've found require an OSX machine. How can I install without having to use a Mac?

    yeah i'm pretty sure you can... your macbook will have come with discs that you can use.... if not use your windows machoine to burn the hdd files to a dual layer dvd and use that?

    Thanks, but I don't have access to an OSX machine other than my MacBook, which is, as I mentioned, dead.

    check the box that the macbook came in. it should have disks. if not, you can order extra disks from apple's website.
