H, I lost my snow leopard installation disk and I need to restore my OS X. However, I brother also has a macbook with Snow Leopard. Can I use his Snow Leopard installation disk to restore my macbook (my OS X)?

Thanks

Installation disk sets are model specific. So unless your brother has the same model as you or he's using a retail set, it won't work. Also keep in mind that the license issued by Apple is for a single install unless the family pack was purchased.

If you lose something, a responsible human being sucks it up and buys a replacement.
How many "Can I use someone else's OSX install DVD?" questions have we seen on here lately? Wow!
If you get a flat, do you "borrow" someone else's tire?

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.
