I don't believe you can. When did you buy the MacBook? If it's after Leopard was released, you should get the upgrade to Leopard for free. Go to an Apple store and talk to them about it.

What you are asking is a violation of Apple's EULA. Guess you bypassed reading the forum rules when you activated your account ? More specifically this paragraph :

Quote:
4 - Illegal Activity: We choose to follow United States law in regard to what is permissible to be discussed here. Therefore discussion of illegal file sharing, cracked programs, requests for serial numbers, and any other breaches of copyright or other illegal activity are not allowed in these forums.

This also includes discussion of breaking the terms of software or hardware EULAs.
And on top of that restore disks are hardware specific so it'll never work on yours because you don't have the same model.

Thread locked.
