Is there anyway to do this? I'm not at home and I want to install OS X on my Macbook (currently using XP) and I'm not going to be home for a while so a friend let me use his disc but I got a message saying I can't install Leopard on this computer.

 

Is it still possible?

Not necessarily.

 

Weirdly enough I got a gray 2008 mac pro install disc to boot into the installer on my macbook.

 

I have also bypassed it by booting into the installer using the computer the gray disc came with, then installing to an external drive and then bouncing that image back to a HD on a different mac pro. Works fine.
