    Had GPU failure and apple store wiped my drive clean and gave me a fresh OSX install - but i told them no to iLife - forgetting that iPhoto and iMovie were in that package.

    I dont have a restore DVD that came w/ my MBP 17".

    Is there any way to get these 2 programs, or do i have to go back to the mac store and have them install it.

    iPhoto and iMovie were installed on my MBP when i purchased it new.

    Sadly, the only way to reinstall either application is to have access to the restore discs or bring it to the store. Another option, although perhaps a bit extreme, would be to purchase an iLife 08 disc and reinstall through that. In the long run, or if you plan to sell the computer down the line, you might want to consider calling AppleCare to see if they can replace the software restore discs that came with your system. That way you will not have to bring the computer back to the store another time, if, god forbid, you have another issue with the hard drive in the future.
