    Install CD that came with laptop is scratched
    Hey everyone,

    I was going to reformat my macbook with the install CDs that came with the laptop. However, half way through installation, I get a message saying cannot read from CD as it may be damaged.

    I was wondering what to do. I tried usingan image if Leopard 10.5 that I copied from a friend. However, my laptop says it cannot be installed. I later read that because of some newer editions of leopard, I need to use the default CDs to install to my macbook becuase they came together so there are special drivers needed.

    I am not sure what to do now

    Help please

    Contact Apple and ask for them to send you a replacement disk.
