    Hello all

    I currently own an Apple g5 intel imac (white one) and i will be purchasing a Macbook sometime this week. I am just wondering if it's possible to install OSX Leopard with the Leopard CD that comes with the Macbook on my iMac without any consequences. That way i can get run Leopard on the iMac without paying $129 for the OS.

    It's illegal to do so, and as the second machine is not a MacBook it's impossible as the disc supplied with a MacBook will only install on another MacBook.

    Note you are basically asking how to pirate OSX which is banned on these forums.
