Alright, here's the sitch... My employer is switching out systems and has decided to give the employees at the facility first dibs at the old hardware at a much reduced price. Being a sucker for a good bargain, I picked up 2 MacBook Pros for (undisclosed price). Let me preface this by saying I'm not a Mac fanboy, nor am I a PC fanboy. I'm a fan of what works for my space and time. I have had 2 Macs in my lifetime, one being the Apple ][ e and the other being a Mac Classic (yes, I'm that old). That said, the 2 MacBooks I got, when I fired them up, I an understand how a couple of people from IT were "let go". The installations are a clusterf*ck. It appears that someone tried to install Win XP and Win Vista without Boot Camp. This has resulted in 2 MacBooks that, if put together, would be a great system. However, One (the XP one) will talk to the internet and recognize it's software but without admin access to install new stuff, the other one won't connect to the net (but allow new installs). I was given the new disks (those for XP and Vista) but none of the original Mac OS disks. I was told "If you buy these, it's your problem, you deal with/fix it". Ok, I get that.... but the question is... What now? How can I get these units to full functionality? If I put them both together, they'd be awesome, but it seems one is screaming; "I'M WINDOWS!" and the other "I'M MAC!", yet neiter one ca understand the sofware or arhitecture on it 100% I'm especially having a problem with one unit recognizing/installing the drivers for hardware, yet the other one works pecy keen... OMG, any tips guise?
