Hey all, I am a windows convert, new imac here, will admit put windows 7 on it right away lol, but anyways i noticed my imac came with no software backup or restore discs and unlike my windows pc's I saw no make restore discs type prompts once I started using the machine.

This has lion on it btw, so in the event my hard drive dies how do i get back to day one on the apple side at least?

I was reading about time machine and altho i get it as a restore point sort of if my main internal drive is zapped i guess I am just wondering ok how do i even get TO the time machine stuff without a working primary drive etc.

Sorry for such a newbie question, the mac side of things is interesting so far but somewhat different than windows so i am learning everyday...
