I've got a late 2009 Macbook Pro 15inch A1286 that I was planning on giving to a friend. Stupidly I wiped it earlier thinking I'd got the original installation disks to hand. Turns out haven't. This in itself isn't the end of the world; I can probably find the disks. But I discovered while playing around with the machine earlier that the CD/DVD drive is spitting out any disk I put in it. So... in summary, I've got a computer with no OS installed on the book disk, and — even if I did have the installation disks to hand — a DVD drive that is rejecting any disk I put in it. Any suggestions regarding what I can do about this? For example, let's say I find the installation disks, can I create a disk image of the original install disk on an external drive and boot off this?
