    Hey guys,

    I have a 2010 13" MBP, and I would like to do a fresh install of OSX. Now I don't have my CD where I'm staying at the moment, so I would like to use a colleague's who just bought a 2010 17" MBP.

    Will I need some sort of license code, or can I just use his CD to do a clean install? Also, if I need a license, is it possible to extract it from my mac in a way?

    I hope somebody can help me with this.

    Mac OS X install discs are specific to the model they ship with. It won't work on another model.

    You will need your install disks that shipped with your computer. You can call Apple for replacement disks.

    It's worth a shot. Other than that you will probably have to wait until you get back home.

    If you're having problems with your existing install of Snow Leopard then the Apple store either will help you with your issue or reinstall the OS.
