I'm new to mac
bought a 2nd hand mac a few weeks ago
imac 24 with 8gb ram 1tb had radian 130
anyway been having a few issues with freeing recently
had a read through a few forums and help pages
tried a few things but to no avail
i don't have any discs with it, and it looks like the recover hd is not intact
so I cant reinstall from that . and as a result i can't run the hardware diagnostics
read somewhere that holding down the option key whilst clicking the buy button for lion {app store ) will give you the option to get the downloader free to help make a recovery hd. however it did not work for me. well it did so but I'm now downloading lion and i guess I've been charged for it
i got time machine running since day one of buying it
so when lion downloads can i just reinstall it. or is it not as easy as that
QUOTE Thanks
