Hi guys,

 

I'm on a Macbook Pro running Mac OS X 10.5.8.


I have bought Mountain Lion.

 

In order to redeem my software purchase I need the Mac App Store.

 

But I am not on a recent enough OS to install the Mac App Store (I need OS X 10.6.6 or later).


My software update on this computer says I have no updates available.


So how do I install a more recent OS X in order to download the Mac App Store in order to install the very software that I have just purchased.

 

It seems that I'm in a chicken and egg situation?!


Thanks so much for any help.


Rob
