My Mac wasn’t downloading OS X Lion so I got a new hard drive and when I go to download it, it never stops loading and this is what the screen looked like after I let it run all night. Someone please save me

we need more info as what caused the problem. be more specific on how you got to this point. is this a new computer you have? in my experiences you need to reset the permissions, a 3rd party mac cleaner will solve that issue, that is if you can get back to the mac running .

Repairing disk permissions and a 3rd party cleaner are going to help reinstall macOS? ...No.

I know, sounds horrible.....unthinkable but that solved my dilemma when i tried the upgrade to high sierra from el cap on the macbook air last year. i ran some mac cleaner after 4 attempts to upgrade without the cleaner, and that software worked! i guess apple stop supporting permission issues with thier older products because this is not the company we once knew and trusted anymore.

look at the "brightside", that worked for me, and will work with their problem which i had last year. i wish i knew which one, but i think the starter left the thread.
Hey sorry for the delayed response but it’s a 2011 MacBook Pro that I bought online about 2 months ago.
