    Option

    Are you running lion or mountain lion, if you are while booting hold alt/option
    If the boot loader screen appears select restore and reinstall the os from there

    If you are not running lion or mountain lion contact apple and they should be able to get you an os disk.
    Good Luck!

    You can buy mountain lion through the Mac App Store and make a recovery image using apple recovery assistant
    Here's the link you can use a USB drive http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4848
    Download it here but the computer it is created on must have lion or mountain lion http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1433

    I will send you the image if I find the disk, I have it somewhere

    Please help for Blue screen on Lion

    Hi,

    Here is the brief about the situation.

    1> I upgraded to Lion a year back from Snow Leopard
    2> Just a month back I created a partition and installed Maverick Developer Preview on the newly created partition.
    3> Soon after few days Blue screen problem started (Both In Lion and Maverick), where the screen is getting freeze for a few seconds (here is snap) and it continues to pop up randomly sometimes 10-12 in a minute
    4> So, i deleted the partition where the Maverick was installed and merged the partition again
    5> But the same problem remained.
    6> Then I created again a new partition and installed Snow Leopard from Bootable CD that comes with Mac but the same problem remained till date.

    I really didn't get what the actual problem is and what to now? please help, I searched many forums but didn't get a solution yet.

    I am using MBP 13.1 late 2011 comes with pre-installed Snow Leopard 10.6

    1. Did you just create a new partition and installed Snow Leopard onto it, or did you boot from your Snow Leopard DVD, completely erase your hard drive and then installed Snow Leopard onto this completely empty hard drive?

    2. Can you install Snow Leopard onto an empty external hard drive, boot from this external hard drive and check whether your computer then runs without problems?

    3. Where in Pune do you live and what are you doing there? I used to live in the early 90s for some years most of my time in Pune in Koregaon Park.

    3> In Pune I am at Akurdi it comes under PCMC locality, professionally a software engineer, so have you been to Koregaon park for to Osho Ashram or some business related assignment?

    I think in order to find out whether you have a software or a hard drive problem it would be good to install the system onto an empty, freshly formatted hard drive. This can be your internal or any external USB hard drive or even a USB stick (8 GB should be enough).

    (I spent my time in Pune mainly at the Osho International Commune; I was there the first time in 1980 and the last time in 1995. This was truly a magnificent period in my life.)
