    MacBook Pro is 2 mos old. Installed the free Mtn Lion recently. If I have to do a full restore in the next month or so, wonder if I'll be able to get Mtn Lion again? Pretty sure I have the email with the code.

    * * btw, I'm thinking of installing Parallels & Win 7 and figure if I screw it up to bad I'll do a restore * *

    Yes if you restore using the method below, you will have Mountain Lion when you restore it.

    You have two ways to "restore"...
    -- Restart holding command R keys for 45 seconds.
    -- If you want to erase, you have to choose "Disk Utility".
    -- Then select the HDD at left, select the "Erase" tab, and choose the "Erase" button.
    -- When that is done, quit Disk Utility.
    Next, and also if you never wanted to erase...
    -- Choose "Reinstall OS X".

    The result will be OS 10.8.
