Mid-2010 production MacBook Pro 15" 2.53 GHz  Currently running OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)


Following the installation of a new Intel Solid State drive due to a failure, all programs that were on disks reloaded just fine except Office: Mac 2011 and iWork 2008-9.  Both posted a message they were blank disks.  I went on and loaded 2 additional programs and then returned to the two that did not finding the same message after repeated attempts. 


I went to Microsoft Office Mac help online and once I gave the chap my License Key he gave me a down load link and all is fine with that now installed program.  Is there an access point where I can do the same with iWork?  I like some of their templates.


Note:  By the way the Seagate drive that failed owed me nothing as it has run continously since 09.09.2009 except for 10 minute weekly shut downs.  I tried to buy a solid state unit on the spot in a pinch for time when this machine was purchased but Best Buy had none claiming they were too expensive to sell.  The drives were hundreds of dollars so they did not stock the either.  I bought an Intel 520 series as instructed by the Geek with a small 120GB capacity as it is much more than needed on this machine and if you want to zip up your Mac for 149 bucks, this is the ticket!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
