Today I installed my Samsung 830 SSD in my early 2011 MBP. It originally came with Snow Leopard and I purchased Lion from the Mac App Store when it was released. So after installing my new SSD, I hold down command-R and boot into Lion recovery. I used the disk utility to format the new drive. Then click the option to download and install Lion. At that point, the screen hangs and goes no further. I never get the option to enter my Apple ID to verify my Lion purchase. Anyone have any ideas? At this point I think I may just instal Snow Leopard from the original CD.
