Hi, I find myself in a tricky situation: I'm using a Macbook whose Superdrive is kaput, broken, sleeping with the fishes, and I'm trying to install Snow Leopard. "Hang on!", you say, "can't you just use remote disk access like those fancy Macbook Airs? I know a simple terminal command to enable that on your computer." And, of course, you would be right. However, for some reason my Hard Drive is 'damaged' and it needs to be 'repaired', and so the OS X install program told me, I had to use a function called 'Remote Install Mac OS X', which would allow me to boot up from a remote dvd. And therein, as the bard would say, lies the rub. For when I get to the part in the Remote Install Mac OS X wizard where it says I need to choose my network from the option-key boot menu, I cannot find that option list. So what's the problem? Well, that part I already figured out. Only the macbook air and the late 2009 mac mini have those options in their boot menu, since those are the ones that support remote disc. if you don't have much time, just read this part: So what I need the infinite wisdom of the MacRumors for is simple: is there a way to enable the Remote Install Mac Os X option on a regular macbook? And yes, I have already googled it and found some people who asked similar questions, but none of them got an answer.
