    Question Snow Leopard question
    Hi basically I had the old problem:
    Installed XP on my macbook and now need to install the drivers for sound and wireless etc. but do not have my original instal discs... I was wondering if I bought the 25 Snow Leopard upgrade if that would suffice for the install disc or will I have to buy Leopard all over again if I want XP on my macbook?

    Thanks for any help.

    Your post is very confusing...what Mac OS version (Leopard or Snow Leopard) do you want to install?

    And yes...if you want to install ANY version of the Mac OS you need to purchase the install disk.

    You can use the Snow Leopard install DVD to install drivers for XP even though the original install of XP was made with Leopard. Just insert the Snow Leopard DVD while Windows XP is running and it will install drivers. No need to re-purchase Leopard. Note, however, if you were to reinstall XP again by using Boot Camp, that Snow Leopard has an updated copy of Boot Camp. (3.0)

    Regards.
