    Hi! I have a MacBook Pro and a MacBook. I want to reinstall Leopard on my MacBook, but have long since lost the install discs. I do, however, have the install discs for my MacBook Pro. Is it possible to reinstall Leopard on a MacBook via MacBook Pro install discs? Or is that just asking for a can of worms?

    No – as well as violating the terms of the EULA, disks from one model of Mac won't work on another.

    If you buy leopard disks, you could install on both with it. ;)

    The Leopard install disk is for a single computer. If you want to install on two computers, buy a family pack.

    As long as he owns a valid license for both machines (which he does, from all appearances), it's perfectly legit to use any install disk for the same OS version to do the install. Yes, one package of Leopard is only for one computer, but if you own it for each, there's nothing wrong with using one of those to install onto the others.

    Of course, the original method won't work anyways, so that's somewhat moot.
