How to Install Mac OS X Lion on a New Hard Disk
I have 2009 series Mac book Pro with 250GB hard drive. I love Apple Product because It is more secure and it has smart look. I install 10.7 version of Mac. My hard drive is filled up very quickly and it is getting full after installing 10.7. I brought a new hard drive of 500GB from Apple. I want to install a hard drive in my Mac book pro. I have 10.5 Os installation Disk which comes along with my laptop and also have 10.6 which I got from Apple Store last year. Recently I download 10.7 upgrades from Official website of Apple. I also have Time machine back up copy on my external hard drive. I want to install fresh copy 10.7 on my new hard drive by myself but I don?t to how to install. I don?t want to call my System engineer because he is charging too much. I can install a 10.7 directly from external hard drive or I install a 10.6 from Installation disc which I got from Apple and after that Upgrade. I don?t have proper knowledge because I am installing first time.
Re: How to Install Mac OS X Lion on a New Hard Disk
There are many ways to install a new hard drive and install Mac 10.7 on your Mac Book Pro. You can Install a 10.6 from disc which you get from Apple and after that Upgrade to 10.7 but it is long process. You can directly install 10.7 from your external hard drive but if you want to do that then you need to make your hard drive bootable. So, the easiest way is first Backup your hard drive in external drive. After that download latest version Of MAC from Apple and make a bootable disc of Mac. After that install a fresh copy and Restore your Data from external hard drive. I will give you a guide for each and every steps for how to do this all.
How to Backup Your Mac:

Preparing Your New Hard Drive:
First start your Mac book, but at that time hard drive just you install is not show up but it is detected in bios. Whenever you install a new hard drive it needs to be format and partition for first Boot. It is done by when you are installing the New Mac OSx Otherwise format it separately by Disk utility software.
