    I got an extra copy of Tiger with my student developer membership. Just wanted to make sure it is ok to sell this, that it's not violating anything in the terms of membership.

    Guess I will sell the retail copy I have, and keep the one I got with the membership.

    help, need some info

    Well, looks like I found a buyer for my old copy of Tiger. However, this is still running on a powerbook. Is there a way to change the installation currently on there to to disc I got with student developer discount without reformating?

    I don't really see the point of re-installing, seeing as there's no activation code / serial number to contend with, and that you would still have a valid license.

    EDIT: Did the installation disc you're selling come with the PB, and if so, is the buyer aware of that? Bundled installation discs only work on the hardware they come with.

    Are you sure there is no way it keeps track? I just feel like I want the sale to be legitimate, and to do this, I would need to remove the copy I am selling. However, with a complete reformat the sale might not be worth it. I was reading about archive and install or something. Seems to keep apps in place, just does a fresh install of OS X. Would this fix my problem. Any have any suggestions?

    No, it is a retail copy of Tiger. 10.3 came with the computer, and then I bought 10.4 when it came out.
