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

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.
