    i got my rMBP today....

    i wasn't sure how they were gonna gimme my ML backup for reinstall/etc as the retina has no optical drive... *thought maybe they gave a thumbstick or something*

    turns out they gave NOTHING....



    ~ bootcamp ask to create bootable win7 cd (only win7 allowed? what happens if win8 comes out?)

    ~ download software updates > equivalent to the (insert macOS disk to install bootcamp drivers?)

    ~ install win7 (believe they just boot up in a dos/terminal awaiting for a boot device to kick start it...) i had to force shut down to get out of it coz i had no bootable at the time...


    in any case, my retina has no backup ML, how do i get my copy of it? call apple and ask them to give me the d/l link???

    You should be able to download ML yourself. If you want a back up ML you do that yourself as well. Follow this tutorial :
