I purchased Lion before I had done the CD upgrade to the latest Leopard Operating System. 

Two days ago I finally installed the Leopard upgrade and my system was updated to Leopard 6.8.  I think.. What ever the  very last version was.


Then I went to purchase OS Lion forgetting I had purchased in the past and it told me I had previously purchased it so it would not allow me to repurchase it.


However I have no idea how to activate it and wonder if I've totally screwed things up by purchasing it before installing the latest Leopard which lion needs.


I know my comport is still running Leopard but don't even see where the files or whatever they are for Leopard or Lion.


I have an IMac from 2007 or 2008. It has a Core Duo processor.


I went to the Apple Store and she said I'd have to bring my computer in or call Apple and pay the.


Any thoughts, suggestions?


Many thanks.
