    I need to either un-install leopard and re-install Tiger, or figure out how to get my ilife back. I don't know how. Changed everything but the serial number.
    Have 2006 Macbook pro. Came with tiger 10.4.8 and the disks. Worked fine. Then bought a retail DVD of Leopard 10.5.6 installed it , of course I selected install and erase and then lost my ilife and my mind.

    For three days and nights I have tried to fix this, and I am not a Mac whiz.

    Tried reinstalling Tiger, pwr up, while pushing C ,d, and T .No go. Says drive won't accept it
    Tried erasing the Hard drive with disk utility. Won't let me.
    Tried re-partitioning. No go.
    Changed everything on the disk utility there. no go
    Finally I just re-booted with Leopard (works but still no ilife) and got on this Forum.
    Thanks

    Your retail version of Leopard will not include iLife, it only comes with a new computer, and not as part of the operating system.

    To get iLife back, I think you'll need to use the 2nd of the 2 CDs that you got when you bought your Mac. That's the one that will have iLife on it I believe.

    Hope you were all backed up.
