    If you buy a new mac, say a macbook. Can you use that install DVD to install Tiger and iLife on another, older Mac that has been reformatted?

    So does a macbook install DVD install correctly on a powerbook?

    Usually it doesn't work, on occasion it will but usually not. It is also not legal.

    none of the apps are intel only and i doubt they would make an intel only version of tiger on the disk, their might be a hardware validication process to stop you, but if it installs it will be a full complete working edition of tiger.
    now the law and rules of this site probably are aggainst recomending you do this so i wont. (i just won't discourage you either :cool: )
