Hi, my name is Britton. Are you available?
so how should i do this
cool...do you have the Mac OS X install DVD?
ugh all it says is Macbook Applications Install DVD
that's not the right one?
Hmmm, does it say disc 1, disc 2, etc...?
which version of Mac OS X is on your Mac?
all it says is really small disc version 1.0
let me check i think 10.5.8
And this is a Macbook you said...?
hmmm, The Applications install disc should only contain the iLife apps like garage band, iPhoto, etc...
Are you sure there isn't another disc somewhere?
i don't have any of the discs that came with it but it took me forever to hunt down this one
The disc you have didn't come with it?
thanks anyway, i need the one that says OSX on the front right?
and is it a series of discs?
well, yeah...but first are you positive you can't get ahold of the original?
Is there an Apple Store, Best Buy, Fry's etc... close by?
it's long gone, i have a pro now
i went and they said it would cost me 30 for the install disc and then 50 for what might be the applications disc that i already have
i have the disc to a macbook pro but i don't think that will work
Yeah, the MBP disc will most likely not install...the $30 they mentioned is the best way to go -- the $30 is a for a copy of Snow Leopard (10.6). Not only will that restore your system the way you wanted to, but it will also upgrade you to the latest and greatest
do you think the applications dvd i already have is the other one they were talking about
that if i didn't have it would wipe out ilife and itunes
Well, when you re-install OS X, it will wipe EVERYTHING from the drive (make sure you back up your data). Doing an archive and install is another option, but I usually recommend wiping the drive clean if possible
The applications install DVD should contain the iLife applications
thanks! i might have a few more questions after i get the disc
i'll let you know!
sounds good, let me know :)
