    So i got the macbook all cleaned up ready for a leopard install but it wont read the leopard disk. I tried a dvd and it works fine! The MBP reads the disk and the installer pops up. The macbook just keeps spitting the disk out!! any ideas or workarounds!???

    Sounds like a bad optical drive. You could always just target disk mode the MacBook and use the Pro to install.

    When I clicked to restart to install it said my disk wasn't in. I just restarted the computer and then restarted with the installer. (on an iBook)
