    So I just got a new macbook pro and I'm wanting to restore from my Time Machine back up, however my new macbook pro is running Yosemite and my Time Machine back up was on El Capitan public beta, I know I need to be using the same operating system before i can restore but I can't redownload the public beta because its telling me my code has already been used, I did an online support chat and was told its one person one code.

    Any ideas?

    If you restore it from Recovery HD, then you don't need to upgrade your OS.

    Why would you need another redemption code?
    I just checked in the App Store under Purchases - clicked on the OS X El Capitan Public Beta, and it started downloading immediately, even though I already downloaded it last week.
    Or, if you still have the Mac that your first downloaded the El Cap beta, you could download again on that, then copy the beta to your new MBPro. You could then (even better) create a bootable USB installer stick with the beta installer, so you don't need to download the beta to install on whatever Mac you choose.
