thanks -- don't quite know how to get back to
Lion which I already own and had loaded before I
had to replace Hard Drive. Cannot get into iTunes to
reload Lion since w/ 10.4.11. (which is the OS now loaded) has
iTunes software 7 & won't upgrade w/o Leopard--so I'm
stuck --- can't re-install from Time Machine for the same
reason. Maybe it's time for a trip to the
In order to have Lion on there you very likely (almost had to have had) Snow Leopard (which is higher than Leopard) on there first which would have involved a SL disc. Do you still have that? You do not need to go Tiger (10.4) --> Leopard --> Snow Leopard --> Lion. In fact it would surprise me if there wan't some way to install Lion directly since new computers don't come with any installer discs, but you may need to ask on the Lion forum about re-installing Lion if that's what you're trying to do.
