My question is:

Does anyone out there know if any Leopard install disks bring a MacBook back to life after a teenager erased the hard drive?  Or are these programs specifically made for each individual machine?  I know the iMac disks won't work on a MacBook,, but does each set of disks have a code for the original hardware in the unit?


What I get is a flashing folder with a question mark in the center.  I loaded the install disk1 from my iMac and was able to pull up the Disk Utilities.  It then goes back to sleep.  Not sure why this child thought it would work without the original disks on hand, but teenagers think differently than most.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.4), No installation discs - erased HD
