    Nope... can't do it.

    The structure of the OS is different from the one your macbook needs.

    For instance the keyboard... it's different, the CPU, the GPU... and so on.

    You'll have to get a retail version or a machine specific install DVD, but getting the last one in another way than buying a new macbook will have some serious legal issues attached.

    Also, I'm not saying it is... but keep in mind that the OS currently installed on your MacBook may be pirated.

    Hope this helps

    Did you mean to say:

    Ok, so I bought a MacBook from a guy off of Craigslist. It works great, looks and runs like new, and it's only a few months old. I got a great deal on it, but he did not include an install disc. I do have an install disc from my Mac Mini, which I tried to install on my MacBook, but it didn't work.

    Is there a way for me to use the install disc from my Mac Mini to install OS X on my MacBook?
    Because if so, then no, there is not. Each disc is designed specifically for the system it comes with.
    MacBook Pro 2.3 GHz Quad i7 - 8GB RAM - 750GB HHD - OS X 10.8
    MacBook 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo - 4 GB RAM - 320 GB HDD - OS X 10.6
