Call Union, have them send you mounting discs for ics system. If you're mounting discs are already designed for ics use them. If you don't know, take a pic of mounting discs and post.

My mounting discs are standard (for 4 whole).
Do you know if the discs union will send me work for the pre 2011 ICS system.

You have to buy the disc from union or you could use the free burton m6 disc and get the m5 hardware which also might be free.

The local snowboard ski shop might have the Burton conversion disc for free or they might charge you 5-20 bucks.

FWIW I mount up discs that are designed for m6 with the m5 hardware, no issue at all.

U Cant

I asked union and there reply was two words by email "You Cant".
Burton replied saying that it is probably best to contact union but if that fails they will send me whatever they have that might work. Basically burton Gets an A+++ and i am not a burton lover. I hate the fact that they try to make everything as proprietary as posbble and i hate their prices but their customer service is Top notch.

Try ETM's method.

I have also heard that burton's regular discs + the M5 hardware work, it's a little bulky under the footbed, but it should work fine.

Update

Using the m6 disk with standard m5 hardware things were looking great.
But, The screws end up coming higher than they would normally and its making the gas pedal come in contact with the screws and less of the base plate. the screws have little washers on them im trying to get rid of. That will fix it i think.
If i cant do you guys think the screws pushing the Gas pedal up make a big difference.

Update

I cut off the washers on the screws.
Now the problem is not nearly as bad but the screws are still poking up about 4 mm. Do you think this is a problem? Im going to strap in and see how it feels.
I think im going to also try getting my hands on a union conversion disc.

Edit: I now realize what i am doing is pretty much what ETM recommended so thanks etm.
