    problems with OSX Install Disc 1
    for some reason, it says that there is an error in reading my disc or that there is damaged. i tried my sister's cd as well. i dont see any physical damage to the disc and it occurred on two discs. is there a limit to how many times u can use the disc?

    Well legally you can only install your copy of OS X on the machine it came with (or a single machine if you purchased the single license, or up to 5 in your household with the family license), so you will have to call up apple and ask them to replace the disc's if there is a problem with them

    Well speaking in non-legal terms, the install CD should technically work as many times as you shove it in a drive. But if it didn't work in two comps, the CD is probably broken.
