So, my hard drive is slowly dying . . . about all I'm able to access is the recovery partition. I bought a new hard drive to replace it, but no longer have the install disks that came with the computer. How do I make install disks from the recovery partition that I can use to install Mountain Lion back onto the new hard drive?


MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

If you have a Mid 2010 MacBook Pro or newer, you have Internet Recovery, so you can reinstall OS X pressing Command, Option and R keys while your Mac is starting, without needing to have OS X on the hard disk

Use Lion Recovery Disk Assistant 1.0 with Apple MacBook EFI Firmware Update 2.1, if needed. You can create a Recovery HD image on any USB drive or flash drive with 2 GBs of free space available.
