Mac OS X Install

So I'm the proud owner of a new Apple PowerBook - can we please spare ourselves the typical debate here? :teeth: I was under the impression that all the Diablo 2 software was compatible with both the Mac OS and Windows using the same set of CDs and didn't foresee any problems.

I downloaded the native Mac OS X installer from the Blizzard website. It opened and prompted me to insert my Diablo 2 install CD. I did so and it reads it, recognizes it, and immediately spits it back out continuing to ask for the Install Disc. What gives?

Is this a problem of compatability with Tiger or am I wrong in thinking that all the discs Blizzard sold are compatible with both systems?

I've discovered that the very, very initial game releases were PC only discs. *Sigh* Shouldn't have pre-ordered it back in the day :rolleyes:

Yeah, it sounds like you have a PC-only disc instead of a hybrid installer. I think you can get Blizzard to do a switch with you for a little bit of money . . . or there's always Ebay.

I'll see what I can find out from Blizzard.

Jealous of my shiny new 15" PBook? :teeth: Just arrived today.
