    Boot to the Recovery Partition, use Disk Utility to erase the Disk, and then reinstall the OS.

    Boot into recovery and use disk utility to erase the disk (Click on the HD and erase the internal disk) then reinstall OS X

    Have you authorized iTunes and logged into the iTunes Store with the account originally used to purchase your music?
