I just bought a new MBP with OS X 10.8 preinstalled.  I also understand that a single OS X license is valid for up to 5 personal Macs.  Even though i registered the new MBP with my Apple ID when i first turned it on, the OS X doesn't seem to be associated with my Apple ID.  Therefore, when i look at my Purchases in the App Store, Mountain Lion is not there, as this Apple Support page suggests.


How can i use my Mountain Lion OS X license (that i purchased preinstalled on my new MBP) on my old MBP?  In other words, how do i get OS X 10.8 on my old MBP without having to shell out another $19.99?


Is there a way to assign my Apple ID to my OS X 10.8 that's already purchased?  Is there a way to copy the OS X 10.8 to a bootable flashdrive or DVD-R that can be used on a seperate MBP?




MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)
