The HD crashed on my old MacBook (white Mid 2007) and appears to be unrecoverable. Though I bought a new MacBook Pro, I would like to resurrect my old MacBook, by buying a new hard drive. (It had an 80 GB drive, and those appear to be really inexpensive).
1) Is there a way for me to get an OS onto my MacBook after I install the new HD? (Can I do this myself?) I think it had the Mac OS X Lion.
2) I think that Apple keeps a record of my devices, and their OS's. If I went to the Apple Genius Bar, would they replace my OS for free and install it for me?
