Please help, I'm having an issue with my machine. Its a 2011 MBP i7 15", it originally had 4 gigs or ram and a 500gig hd. Two days ago it stop loading my hard drive after I ran disk repair and and a restart. So I took the opportunity to get a new hard drive. I purchased a seagate 750gb hybrid drive. The machine still will not boot. I've tried loading from the online recovery and the partition on the original drive with no luck. I finally decided to by mountain lion on my wifes machine and create a boot disk. I'm still having no success. This is a big deal since I lost my job last week and I'm trying to do contact work from home until I find something else full time. IF anyone can help me sort this out it would be greatly appreciated. In short its a MBP 15" i7 with 4 gigs of ram installed. And a New formatted 750 gig hd. I thought maybe it was some how related to some other hardware failure, but the machine runs super fast when Its in recovery mode. I even have internet access. When I start an installer it begins but at some point to stops and takes me back to the Restore/Install/Get help/Utility Disk screen. It never finishes the install, and I never get the apple id prompt I think I'm suppose to see. Again if anyone can help me get this done I would be super grateful. BTW it does see my new hard drive, and it does see the thumb drive and hard drive I used as boot up disk.
