comment Can a Mac OS X DVD that came with a computer be used to upgrade another computer?
Your link both explains what's wrong and gives me a solution (alongside your cloning solution)--priceless, thanks again!

Mmm... No, I haven't tried. If that doesn't work then it will waste me quite a bit of time for nothing, so I'm wary of trying it. I mean, on the DVD there's a PDF that talks about upgrades, so it doesn't give the impression that it's a fresh install only DVD.

Thanks--but then if the DVD isn't checking for legitimate use (i.e. only accepting to run on the MacBook Pro model it came with), why do I get "Mac OS X 10.6 cannot be installed on this computer"? I don't remember when I got the iMac but I'd be surprised if it was unsupported.

Thank you! I was hoping Apple wouldn't have gone through the trouble of customizing the OS X DVDs that they put in the box of their computers to implement restrictions on the sort of thing I'm trying to do, but such is life!
