    Hi All

    I have a MacBook Pro 17" i7 Laptop.

    When I purchased the MBP I did not back it up. The MBP came with iLife 11 already instaled on the laptop it also came with facetime etc.

    Now I wish to do a clean install of Lion on my MBP.

    The question is how will I get iLife back on my laptop?

    Other apps that I have downloaded from the app store I can see showing as Installed so If I were to download these again it wont cost me. But Apps such as facetime, iMovie etc are all showing up with a price next to it.

    Can someone please help me out

    Thanks

    iLife comes with all Macs, so the clean install will include iLife.

    Then the answer is it's on the DVD that came with the MacBook Pro.

    Else it's found on the app store.

    Lion comes with facetime but does not come with iLife. it will keep your current version if you upgrade. since you're doing a clean install, it might not unless it's on your DVDs?

    Which OS was preinstalled on the system? If it was 10.6 then you should have a set of two DVDs that will allow you to reinstall 10.6 and iLife.

    If it was 10.7 then you have Internet Recovery for the OS (if you've installed the firmware update) but I don't know how to get iLife back.

    When you initially registered your machine through the wizard you should have had the option to create or put in a new Apple ID.

    Login to the Mac App Store with this ID and you all have the option to download it again.

    Ok guys had my sister check for me at home and I do have two disks

    One is start up mac and the other is apple hardware test.

    I checked my Mac earlier today and its currently got 10.6

    Eddyisgreat I am logging into Mac App Store with the same ID but the items e.g. iMovie are still showing up with a price next to it.

    The fact that I have 10.6 and also the disks does that mean I can do a fresh install. Will I need to load the disk first and then install lion?

    Appretiate your help guys
