    So I recently had to wipe my mac and all that hoo hah. I've reinstalled the 2 discs that come with my mac, and everything is working fine. My mac is on version 10.6.3 at the moment, but I bought OS X Lion about a year ago. So I figured I'd simply re-download and install it. I can't get through to my "purchased" in the iTunes store, because it keeps telling me to update my iTunes, but I can't update my iTunes, because I'm not running on a recent enough OS.
    Any suggestions on how to get my OS X Lion back?

    You need to update to the version of Snow Leopard that has the Mac App Store. I think its version 10.6.6. Try running Software Update, it should get you updated enough so you can get Lion back (through the Mac App Store, not the iTunes Store :) ).

    Roadbloc is right, you need to update Snow Leopard so that you can have access to the Mac App Store (your Lion will be in the "Purchased" Tab).

    The only update you need to install is the 10.6.8 combo :

    (you don't need to install all the other updates Software Update would list).

    10.6.8 should be available in your Software Update.
