Hello, I have a MBP 2,2 GHz, with a faulty DVD-drive. It wont read any discs, simply ejects them after spinning around for a while. The metal around the DVD-slot is slightly bent out of shape, as if too much pressure has been applied on the right side of the palmrest, just above the slot. I don´t really need the drive but I am running in to problems now that I want a fresh install of Leopard. I have thought of two possible solutions, however, I am uncertain of both, and am looking for some general advice on what to do. I have access to other Apple machines with functional drives and I also have an external FireWire 400 HD. The Leopard DVD that I have is retail and didn't come bundled with any of the machines. So what I'm thinking is this: 1. Either I run the DVD from one of the other macs using the "Remote Install Mac OS X" app in the utilities folder. Does anybody know if this will work? Is this option limited to Macbook Airs without a DVD-drive? 2. I'm also thinking I should make a disc image of the DVD and somehow run it from the external FireWire HD. Is that possible? Someone please advise, what are my options here?
