Hi,

 

I have a MacBook Pro mid 2009, and need to reinstall Lion, 10.7.5. I have an external HD, which I use at the moment as the start-up disk. It also has the Recovery Partition on it. When I choose the recovery option, I direct the download to my MB, and the download appears to go well..., until the last quarter of an inch or so of the progress bar. At that point the remaining time estimate varies wildly, anywhere from 40 minutes to three hours 30 minutes. I have let it sit over night, seeing whether it would eventually continue. No dice. This has been my third attempt. (I know Einstein's definition of stupidity: Stupidity is repeating the same action, but expecting different results)

 

Any advice?

 

Thanks


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
