Hi I am a novice when it comes to issues like this and for some reason i decided to wipe the hard drive on my MBP for no apparent reason!! Couple of issues to bear in mind before we start 1) The OS Lion that i had installed was a copy version 2) I dont have the actual install Snow Leopard disk from my MBP, i do have a 10.6.3 from my iMac I have totally wiped and now when i go to the Utilites page from bootup it is giving me following options 1) Install OSX Lion - when i click this option it is asking me to enter my Apple ID and then that fails so it does not allow me to go any further (I now can't go back and purchase OSX Lion as Mountain Lion has been launched (which i have bought for iMac) 2) Disk Utility - This is where i need some help as obviously whatever i am doing is no good. I have spent the last four hours trying to sort and now horribly stuck and massively peeved at myself for attempting to wipe in the first instance!!! If i try and reboot from the startup disk i get 3 beeps and then nothing happens... Hoping somebody can help me out, i will be massively grateful!
