    Hi, quick question here:

    I have recently got hold of a copy of OEM Leopard which is model-specific to the new MacBooks, I would like to install it to my older macbook but of course the installer doesn't allow it.

    I have also read that a simple modifying of a file in the Install Disk would allow it to install, but after many hours of googling I still cannot find how exactly to do that. (Where this file is, what to edit with...etc)

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Go to the Apple Store, buy a copy of Leopard. It's worth it.

    You won't get an answer here.

    Buy a retail copy.

    There is no such thing as OEM Leopard. OEM products are those sold to manufacturers for supply with a new machine. Apple produce both the hardware and the software so they have no need to sell OEM copies of the OS to other manufacturers: there are none.

    What you have is a restore disk supplied with a Mac. That copy if Leopard is only licensed for the Mac it was shipped with: installing it on any other Mac is a civil, and potentially criminal offence.
