Comments Reply 1 of 5 ghost_user_name Posts: 22,667member February 24, 2004 12:30PM That depends.The Software Restore CDs that come with a computer typically are written to only work on that computer.If you are referring to the standard black-with-metal-X CDs for Mac OS X 10.3, then they should install just fine on any supported computer.

Legend has it that this technique worked. Personally I think such file sharing is a filthy, dirty practice and would never recommend such things to my friends.

This disc includes Hardware test, Software Restore, and Software install...so you should be good as american pie.-walloo.
