    Yea,
    I have so many windows computers at my house, and i recently purchased a MBP. I wish I could 'suck the XP' out of my old computer, and apply it to the MBP, but I cant.

    However I have found a Dell OS reinstallation CD for Service Pack 1a. Will it work?

    NUP - you need a retail version not a OEM.

    The version that you have on the Dell CD's will be specific to Dell hardware. You will need to purchase a full retail version of XP/Vista if you want to run it on your MB/MBP.

    Yes it does suck, but it's better than Microsoft trying to sue Apple for lost revenue.
