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.


MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2008), Mac OS X (10.5.8)
