    I have a early 2011 macbook pro that came pre installed with osx lion. I was trying to restore it and everything was going well until i tried to install the osx. It asked me to login with an app store account that has previously downloaded osx lion but since i am the second owner i dont have it an i dont have the original install disks either. Ive tried downloading the osx illegally and putting it on a usb to see if that worked but it still didnt. Now after many different tries everytime i turn it on it goes straight to internet recovery before going to disk utility. Could i use an osx lion disk that came with a imac or are there any other solutions to reinstall osx lion? Any help would be apprecitated. Thanks!

    I would contact Apple about this. Perhaps if you have an Apple Store nearby they can install the OS for you.

    If I'm not wrong, my Early 2011 MacBook Pro came with Snow Leopard; it would have came with DVDs; in that case you can contact Apple for replacement disks.
