    Trying to use bootcamp to get windows working
    Okay, so I am trying to get windows to work on my mac via bootcamp, on the apple website it says I need a leopard disk.

    First question: Do I actually need a leopard disk?

    If no, then good, but if I do...

    I lost my leopard disk, my mac came preloaded with leopard, can I talk to apple and say that my disk drive messed it up and get a replacement?
    If not, if I use a friends leopard disk will that be fine? (forgetting legal issues, this is all theoretical)

    You'll need the Leopard disk for the drivers. You can contact Apple for a replacement. (for a fee)
    From Apple;
    "When you install Windows using Boot Camp, you won’t need to search the Internet for drivers or burn a disc. After you run Boot Camp, simply insert the Leopard DVD to install the necessary drivers."

    Possible soulution though...
    Control-click on the Boot Camp Assistant program, choose Show Package Contents, and then navigate into Contents » Resources. Inside there you'll find DiskImage.dmg. Just burn that disk image, and you'll have your Windows drivers CD
    When all else fails, try everything!
    The Rep System and you.
    Life's a joke...If you're not laughing, then you didn't get it.
