Apologies as this is no doubt something that's been asked before, but I can't seem to find the information that says this will work, just that it might. My combo CD drive on my 12" 1.33 GHz iBook seems to have died. I'm resigned to the fact I'm going to have to send it in, but I suspect that they'll ask me if I've tried reinstalling OSX, and I also have wanted to do this for a while and restructure my files while I'm at it. I know it's not entirely necessary, but I've got so much housekeeping to do I'd like to do it, and it seems sensible to do this and back up properly before I send it in. My problem is that I can't reinstall without a working CD drive! I also don't have an external CD/DVD drive, but I do have a boyfriend with an iBook. Is there a way to mount his iBook (14" 1.42 GHz) in target mode and use his Superdrive through that, and so run my installation disks through it? (Oh, and without screwing up his iBook, or I'll be in trouble ) Thanks in advance for any help or information.
