    Hi guys,

    My macbook c2d has been having problems with the 10.4 and I was curious if I could update it with a 10.5 restore disk.

    1) I have an older mac with factory 10.4
    2) A buddy of mine has her restore disks with leopard
    3) Would an upgrade through that route work?

    Thanks and cheers!

    Nope you have to have leopard drop in disc or retail copy.

    Backup/Restore discs will only work on that model it came with.

    You can hack the restore disk, but idk if we're allowed to talk about that here?
