I dropped my 2009 intel based MacBook while the disk was running.  It no longer runs... no big surprise.  Now I need a bootable disk or USB drive with the ability to install an operating system.  It was running Lion when I bought it so my time machine back ups will be in that format.  I would actually prefer to NOT use my time machine full back up since it had data from the previous owner that I could not figure out how to delete. 

I need a full install not an update... I have nothing to update and cannot boot.

A fresh install would be wonderful.  I don't mind paying for the installation disk or file, I just can't find it anywhere. 

Swapping out the drive was easy.  I just need to get the OS installed. 


MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.4), Intel 2.0 with 2 GB and 120 GB HD
