1. If you're using the discs from another machine, they are machine specific and will not install.

2. If you're using a retail disc, it probably does not have the drivers required for a new machine.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Has nothing to do with 13" vs 15". The discs that come with a Mac are machine (or system specific). You will not be able to use the discs from one machine on another unless it is the same system (basically identical hardware).
