    Hi fellow forumers,

    I have two macs at home and am intending to sell one of them. I have two OSX Snow Leopard upgrade DVDs which I bought to install on both macs (one for each mac). Now that I am going to sell one of them, I would like to reformat the one I am going to sell. Is there any way to find out which dvd I used initially for that mac so I can use it to reformat the computer and also pass the disc to the buyer.

    Appreciate help quickly.

    You won't be able to tell from the SL discs, but the grey restore discs are machine-specific. Are the Macs the same model?

    If they are both retail versions, it doesn't matter. OS X has no serial number, so all packages are equal.
