    Okay, here is my "dilemma" ....

    I purchased my MacBook in August 2006 and it came with 10.4.X and I have been fine with using that OS. However, just recently (august 08) my sister purchased another Macbook. Her Macbook came with the 10.5.4 install disks. I tried to put these into my macbook just to see if for some reason apple was nice enough to allow people who purchased new macbooks to update all other macbooks they owned. However, it does not appear to work that way.

    Is there any way I can get the 10.5.4 Install disks to work on my macbook (purchased august 06) that is currently running 10.4.11 ?? thanks for any help you can give me guys!

    There's no way you can get them to work. Gotta go buy the retail Leopard disk.

    Ditto to that above. Those system restore discs are specific to that particular computer. Even if you purchased two Macs at the same time, the discs won't work on the other Mac.
