I have a Mac Book Pro from 2009 with Lion 10.7. It is performing badly and I want to re-install the OSX. Pressing CMD/R and choosing reinstall mac osx, license confirmed, I want to choose recovery HD, but the disk is locked?
320.07 GB Hitachi / drive0
MAC OX X Base System
I think the link was covering a different subject. This is about the recovery HD ?
It is a similar image, but the disks are different. I want to reinstall Mac OS X, and I have to options in my image called "Install Mac OS X":
Recovery HD 650 MB total - 140.3 MB available
This disk is locked.
drive0 319.21 GB total - 11.04 GB available
I cannot choose the Recovery HD.
I have a backup (time machine), but I belived that I could just re-install the OS X with out loosing applications, data, etc. Is that no the whole idea of using the build in reovery HD?
I am ask to pay more money - this is not acceptable for me.
