My partner's early 2011 MBP 15" has finally killed its HDD. I have no problems with the physical procedure of replacing the drive but the OS install has got me stumped. It seems I need a bootable media (USB/DVD) for this purpose. However, we don't have another Mac in the house. How do I go about creating an install media without a Mac? Or perhaps a kind Mac person in ChCh or North Canterbury can help me create the needed installation media?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
