I wanted to erase my hard drive and reinstall the system and the apps I primarily use. I followed the instructions from apple, but after I sign in with my ID and password I get the Error 1004 and "try again later".


Starting to panic a bit because I don't have a physical copy of Lion to do the install. How do I get around this?  Any help is greatly appreciated.



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1)
