    Sorry if already posted.

    I have the rMPB and I go to the App store to get Mountian Lion and it asks to buy it. Do I just click Buy and will it automatically know I have the rMBP?

    ... and then get in the waiting queue. Some users are reporting codes that don't work; and Apple have an ETA of 48 hours to send you a code to redeem.

    jeeze. It asked me to take photos of my proof of purchases and upload them to confirm. Why is this so difficult? Shouldn't apple have this on record already? It seems like I am going to be waiting a while.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Wow. What the hell. I put that in addition to uploading photos of my receipt and the serial number on my box and UPC.

    Did you buy your macbook in store or online?

    Funny how something that should be automated and instant takes up to 48 hours in Apple-land.

    Where does it say it will take up to 48 hours?

    ----------

    The MacRumors article says it will take up to 3 days. Come on Apple.

    Same thing happened to me. I was not typing serial number in right. I did a copy and paste from about this mac and then more info. Copy and paste worked. No more photos to take.

    It wouldn't let me copy & paste so I just typed it in.
