    Specs:
    iMac 1.8 GHz Power PC G5 / MacBook Pro 15" 2.4 GHz
    Install disk use
    In how many computers can I use the same install disks of an operating system? Lets say tiger...
    I need to upgrade my imac and buy a macbook. I was thinking of using the macbook Tiger disks on the imac (still on 10.3.9)...Can I do that?
    Thankx C

    Specs:
    12" Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz)
    Legally? No.
    Ethically? No.
    Technically? No, actually...Intel disks definitely won't work on a PowerPC Mac.

    I'd suggest you buy a Family Pack when Leopard comes out.
