    The CD that comes with the a macbook is restricted to that macbook. $29 will get you a new disk from apple.

    So, what about installing illegal / pirated software? It's discussion is not permitted here.

    Where is the disc that came with your machine? I'd suggest you call Apple and ask for a set of replacement discs.

    If you can't come up with the $29 "retail" for a legitimate copy, I'd suggest you don't really need it all that bad.

    You need the original discs or a retail copy of OS X in order to install it legally on your computer. Pretty much end of discussion.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
