    I have just received my Macbook (2007) from eBay today. I thought "Hmm, gotta make sure the hard drive is wiped before I do anything!" So I downloaded OS X Recovery Disk Assistant, and rebooted it. I wiped the main drive, and then I got to the re-installation of Lion. This is where I've reached my "uh oh". The reinstaller needs an account that bought Lion from the store. Seeing that I just bought this Macbook, I don't have that on my Apple account. So I'm stuck. Also, you guys might suggest to buy ML and just upgrade from Lion, well, this Macbook only supports up to Lion. Any suggestions? :confused:

    Buy a Snow Leopard disc from Apple's online store, and then upgrade to Lion?
