Think that's correct, the drivers on the restore dvd are specific to the machine you buy it with, you could always buy a mbp 2 disc restore dvd off ebay, quite cheap, but you have to make sure its one with ilife 08 or youll get 06....i dont think a mb cd has the proper drivers to power a sr mbp. you could, but i doubt you'd love it.
if you dont want to buy ilife and you're so interested in the update, why not *cough* ilife? oops, looks like some pirates invaded my throat there.
Well, it seems that ilife has locks, it has a separate installer program on the CD, which, when launched on the MBP, gives me a message that it cannot launch on this computer.I know that you can't use your MB restore disks to reinstall Tiger on the MBP, but I'm not so sure that the iLife has locks on it. Having said that, if you were to remove iLife '08 from the MB (and as a result, you still have the license, but you're not using it on multiple machines), you might be able to use pacifist to extract iLife for use on the MBP.
