Doesn't install OS X, can't boot into recovery mode
I have a MacBook Pro from 2010 with OS-X and Windows 7 on it.
The current hard drive is damaged as I can only boot Windows in Safe Mode and OS X doesn't load at all. I can't even access recovery mode, it goes to a white screen.
I would like to do a clean install of OS-X on to a 250GB SSD from a USB pen drive (that has been tried and works fine on other Macs) but the computer won't go into recovery mode.
However installing windows 7 from the DVD disc starts fine up, after completing the process the network driver isn't there off course.
What am I doing wrong here? And how to I fix this?
Is this a good question?
