    Dead hard drive on new Macbook Pro
    Hi all,

    I have a dead hard drive on my new Macbook Pro and I do not have easy access to where I bought it. Can I buy a new hard drive, install it and somehow install OS X Lion onto it? I don't have a second mac but I have a PC and I have downloaded OS X Lion to that.

    Thanks

    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    Don't do it. It's under warranty, contact Apple (you have 3 months Applecare free) and they will arrange collection, or, in fact will most likely replace the Pro.
