    I have a mac mini running leopard. I just bought my wife a MacBook which came with snow leopard. Can I use the restore/install DVD to get snow leopard on the mini?

    Hundreds of threads would tell you that not only is this illegal, it's impossible, as restore disks are machine specific.

    Please search before posting next time, as you were instructed to do when joining the site. MRoogle is a great asset that can answer all of your "yes or no" questions.

    the discs that came with your g/f's purchase (gray colored) are system specific and will only work on the system as she bought.
