If your old hard drive is readable, we can clone it. If not, a couple of options are available. You can call Apple and get a replacement set of install disks, usually for about $15.00. Sometimes they will even upgrade you. If you are not the original owner or want something more than what Apple offers go to www.fastmac.com for just about any operating system. http://fastmac.com/osx.php

You should reinstall Mac OSX by using the restore disks found in the box when you bought the mac, then restoring all your data from the old HD (using a sata adapter)
