I upgraded to Mountain Lion, clean install of snow leopard, then right to mountain lion. I noticed my iLife apps were not installed. This is was a restore snow leopard dvd that was bundled with my MBP 2009 i started with. The app store is not isting my iLife apps either, nor is the bundled apps on the dvd listing iLife. What can i do to get my iLife back without purchasing? Or where can I find them ?


Appreciate any assistance

    Your MBP should have had two DVDs: a System Install DVD and an Applications DVD. The iLife apps are on the Applications DVD.

    If you contact them and provide your Mac's serial number, then they ought to be able to provide you with a replacement Applications DVD. They will charge a nominal fee. As long as it's less than the retail price of an iLife retail box (about $50 these days) that is the best course of action.
