    Specs:
    2.16 GHz Intel Imac Core 2 Duo//MacBook 1.83 Core 2 Duo//G5 Power Mac
    The disks are machine specific, so I am afraid you will not be able to.

    Specs:
    MacBook 2.0GHz White, 512MB RAM, 60GB HDD
    More fundamental than that, the disks are architecture specific. The macbook has an intel processor, and the G5 has, well, a G5. One simply cannot understand the other.
