    Sorry, please try again. English may not be your native language, but cannot understand a word of what you are trying to say. May be better to post in your native tongue.

     

    Thanks

    You have a 2012 MBpro with a special hardware build of 10.7.4.  It's only available via Recovery HD until another release comes out that includeds the new drivers.  The store version is to old.

     

    Best thing to do until then is make a clone copy on external disk.

    Thx for your reply, so how can i make a clone copy on external disk? and does this will do the recovery?

    You can use a program like Carbon Copy Cloner to make a bootable copy of your system on an external drive.

     

    Then if you need to recover, you can boot the backup, (Hold the Option key during boot for selection) and then run from your external disk.  This can also be copied back to your internal drive.
