As far as violating the license agreement… that's something that ApplejustWorks has to deal with, not me. ApplejustWorks asked if it would work, not if it was legal.

I've not seen a problem using the restores from other systems. I've been running my Desktop G4 using my iBook restore dvd for 3 weeks with no problems at all. I did the same thing with Jaguar without a problem. If it installed hardware specific files… not a problem here.

I believe that the installer would reject the "install" if it was hardware specific. OS 9 installers did just that.

ApplejustWorks, I say backup your system and try it.
