    HELP. I am running a mid Mac book pro 13 inch mid 2010 model. On Saturday I decided to partition my drive. I had two partitions already (Lion, and Bootcamp). I wanted a third one for snow leopard. I posted in this forum on how to partition to get snow leopard on, one of the members game me directions, I followed it, and it worked perfectly. Everything was going so smoothly (it still ran fast, snow leopard worked great, windows worked great, and Lion worked great). All of a sudden, today, lion started freezing up on me. It froze, so I restarted. It wouldn't load. I turned it off for a while, then turned it backed on. It worked, I made sure everything was backed up, and every once in a while it would freeze. I then restarted it, and now it won't load. I tried using disc recovery (on both the OS disc, and Lionnrecovery drive), and it wouldn't work. After a while, the computer worked again, then froze, I restarted, now lion recovery won't work. I get an error -1007F. What can I do? The nearest apple store is 5 hours away from me

    Put in a new hard drive and restore from your backup.

    From what I can gather on the google 1007F is an error code thrown when using the internet recovery, and its related to the EFI. I have seen links related to the recovery partition.

    If you have your Snow Leopard disk, I'd boot that up and run some hard drive diagnostics

    I made one more attempt before I decided to take it to the store (there is an authorized mac store that is authorized to do computer repairs, especially if under apple care, that is 10 minutes away). I put in my Lion Disc that I burnt back when I downloaded the Lion Installer app. I clicked on re-install Lion. It gave me two options (My Snow Leopard Partition to install it on, or my Bootcamp partition which wouldn't let me install it, but no Lion Partition). I decided to install it over my Snow Leopard Partition over night. This morning I wake up, it's finished. I restart the computer, and guess what? My Lion partition works too (the main one, not the one that had Snow Leopard on it). I don't know for how long, but right now it's working. I'm going to remove the
    partition that had Snow Leopard on it, and see if maybe that was the cause of all of this, and I'm going to run a virus scan later today as well

    Probably the SL partition was in conflict with the Lion one. This depends on the method you used to partition your HDD.

    I had inserted the snow leopard disc (the one that came with the computer), restarted the computer, and partitioned using Disc Utility. Maybe my computer was only able to handle two partitions (Lion and Bootcamp) since it only has 4GB ram

    No, ram has nothing to do with it. I've had multiple partitions, OSX, windows and Linux all at once.

    Its probably some sort of issue with Lion and SL living together

    That could be it. I think it might have something to do with it. It screwed up on me again, so when it works again, removing the partition is the first thing I'm doing

    Apple.com/support -1007F HELP!

    Running brand new, non-retina display MacBook Pro. I replaced the 500GB drive with a 1TB drive. On using Command-R on bootup, I get the error:
    !
    Apple.com/Support
    -1007F

    I have zero recovery media with this new machine. Options??
    I have active WiFi, but of course the Internet Recovery cannot get on without asking for network name and password, so it is built to fail... What a lousy idea Apple...
    I have a Time Machine backup drive that I connected at boot as well but it doesn't even look for that.
    Can I boot into a disk utility to at least see the new drive and perhaps partition it? So many questions!
