Do you have the Mac OS X Snow Leopard discs ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
nope...deployed. tryed friends disk but says not authorized
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
The app you downloaded is not Lion OS X, it is just the recovery assistant and it needed Lion recvoery partition on the drive. Turn off your Mac, turn it back on and hold down Option key on your Keyboard. From startup manager screen, can you see "Lion Recovery HD" volume ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no recovery volume...jsut the thumb drive. either apple is blockin the dl or the isp is....
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
If it is not allowing you to download, then you should buy Lion OS X again. You can buy the Lion OS X Thumb Drive : http://store.apple.com/us/product/MD256Z/A

Then you can install clean Lion OS X from the thumb drive. Let me know if that didn't worked. Only click Accept if you are satisfied...

Best Regards,
Ashik
