    you will have to buy a retail version of Mac OS X or buy new installation DVDs for your Mac from Apple Supprot as each installation DVD is only for that model of Mac. so your sisters install DVDs will only have the drivers for her MacBook model.

    it probably wont work and give you a kernel panic (restart screen) or your MacBook Pro will think its a MacBook.

    If you know someone with a macbook pro and the same specs, use their restore disks and restore your MB pro.
