Like the others said, probably not, but if you pop it in and start the installer it will warn you if it can't use it on that machine so don't worry about screwing anything up. You just never know, sometimes they work. I ran into a situation a few weeks back where the customer didn't have disks from his G4, but his G5 discs were able to boot and install on it.
I think I will use CCC to copy her system to an external hard drive. There are several things I need to save including her copy of Paralells and Windows before I sell the computer. What format do I use for the external since it will have Windows on it?
I am right 97% of the time. The other 4% doesn't matter.
If it's all on one partition just cloning will copy everything. If it is Boot Camp with a separate partition you need to copy that to a separate partition too. You'd need to partition the external.
If the computer is only one partition the external should to be partitioned for GUID BTW. In Disk Utility go to Partition, Volume Scheme: 1 partition, click the Options button, and make sure it's set to GUID.
If it has Boot Camp you need to make 2 partitions, 1 GUID and 1 Windows MS-DOS fat. You may be able to make both partitions GUID, but I have never actually have had a need to clone a Boot Camp partition.
