    Hello everyone!

    Recently I bought a MBP 15" to replace an old Early 2008 MBP (Nvidia Chipset problem) and I just moved the HD to the new one. The computer is working normally but I do want to have newer programs like iLife and the rest of them that stayed on the other HD (the one that came with the new one). Is there a way to redownload the software to have this new software instead of the old one I had on the older MBP??

    Also do you think there may be any problems with other software that worked on the old one that may be causing any lags on the new one. Example: Nvidia drivers and other EFI firmware?

    Thank you very much.

    iLife should come preinstalled on new MBPs.
    but datas can be transferred by connecting your old HDD to a external HDD and connecting it via USB or firewire.
