    Haha...obviously we all know.

    Not to encourage illegal behavior, can you use the OS X disc image to reinstall the OS from an external harddrive?

    Well actually there are two possibilities:

    1) He/she downloaded it legally from ADC. In which case he/she can follow the instructions posted with the image. As they have posted this question then:

    2) They have illegally downloaded it in which case they are i) exceptionally cheap as it's such a low cost release, ii) not going to get any help.

    Going to report this now...
