Since the right answer is "install from your legitimate CDs" any other answer would be aiding what they call "casual piracy."
Besides you may want to request this post be removed since all those companies would now have a record that you have such but acquired them from less than legitimate means. That is, to post here you had to reveal your email address.
Think about it.
OK, so after years as a PC expert I am now a Mac newbie...
Problem: I recently bought an old G4 Quicksilver with single 867 MHz cpu, running OS X 10.4 Tiger, and LOADED! with applications such as Final Cut Pro, Final Cut HD, Adobe Photoshop, CG3, MS Office for Mac 2008, etc., but no installation disks.
However, I realized that I would do better with a Dual 867MHz MDD as far as speed was concerned, so I bought one of these as well, but it is completely clean - no OS or applications installed.
Since they are practically identical machines, is it possible to copy all of the applications from the Quicksilver to the MDD? If so, what is the best method? I certainly cannot afford to buy all of the apps that are installed in the Quicksilver.
If I copy everything to an external HDD can I then transfer to the MDD? Or will migrating using the "target" method work?
Thanks to all the Mac gurus for any help!
