    Hi all,

    I recently spilt some water over my Early 2011 Macbook Pro i7 8gb Lion. The battery was fried and the Macbook Pro was running fine off the charger; after a complete strip down and dry.

    I have replaced the magsafe port and have installed a new battery. The battery is charging except my HDD is damaged.

    I have tried to use Macdrive to repair it, but it states the drive needs to be formatted. I am looking at installing a Vertex 3 but have a problem. The Macbook Pro will not boot into recovery, so I cant use the internet to reinstall Lion to the new SSD.

    What advice can you give? How can I get Lion (Shipped with Macbook Pro) to my new SSD???

    When I plug the power pack in to charge the battery, the mac automatically starts and from there I will not let me restart; and the following will not work.

    I have tried to restart it using Command – R, but it hangs at the apple logo.
    I have tried holding Option, but nothing happens
    Thanks, Chri

    What happens when you insert the SSD, then boot whilst holding option down? Does the Lion internet recovery show?

    Do you have access to the Lion install and another computer running Mac OS?
