Hey everyone,

So after my girlfriends HDD in her Macbook Pro 9,2 died, I changed it with another HDD and I can now create the partitions etc that I need to reinstall Mountain Lion.
I try to use the Internet Recovery method where it downloads and install automatically. My problem starts when it says that it is installing and the progression bar is moving. It started at 40 minutes, and every time it hit 0, it simply moved back to 40 again. After I had seen it do that for a couple of hours I went to bed. When I got up this morning, a pop-up on the screen said that it could not get the components needed for the installation (or something quite similar to that).
My internet connection is a 30/30 so I don't think that would be the bottleneck.

Does anyone have an idea of how I can make it work again? All ideas are welcome

I would just suggest trying again. Your internet speed is sufficient but that doesn't mean there wasn't connection issues while it was attempting.

I left it the same way again yesterday, and the same error came up.

Unfortunely I don't have acces to another Mac, so I wont be able to make a usb-stick with installation files from it. Is there any other way that can be done?

You can download the .dmg image to any computer. If on a PC, you can convert the file to an ISO image and burn it to a DVD or USB Flash Drive. Burn DMG file on Windows

Skipping the long story, I'll just say that I had to wipe my drive and reinstall Vista from scratch. I knew I was going to have to do it before my computer completely choked, though, so I went to the Drivers folder and copied everything directly onto an external harddrive. I thought I could then...
