iMac Lion Total System Failure

I started a new thread for this because this seems outrageous to me (see also: iMac Lion Lost Everything).

My 3.5 month old iMac 27" just booted up like it came from the factory.

This is my worst suspicion, though I can't imagine why an Apple tech would bother to harvest RAM from new machines while still having to replace it with other older RAM.

None of the links I've found thus far (90 minutes or so) take me to an actual download. They all lead to generic search/ sales sites with no o2M.
