    i purchased a MBA back in late december or early january and it had iLife already and all.

    Now i recently did a clean install, erased the whole ssd and am installing everything back on... however ive come across a few issues:

    1 - i had iLife before but now its not here and in the App Store it says i have to pay for that, is that what happens when you do a clean install?

    2 - i backed up my "library" folder but dont know how to get my bookmarks and etc back on safari.

    can anyone help please?
    thanks in advance

    iLife is not part of the OS. It's part of the "Additional Applications" install. Put the restore DVD back in and run the additional installer.
