I bought a new iMac in the latest configuration, with Lion preinstalled.
The very first day, Lion started to crash. Even though I was not using it, it was crashing. So, I decided to reinstall.
Cmd + R.
Now, I am doomed. Internet recovery takes at least twelve hours, even though I have high speed internet. That's fine too.. the sad part is when I start reinstallation, after two hours in, it again crashes. I was doing the same thing over and over again for the last three days.
Now, I have a useless huge expensive iMac which does not work at all. I called Apple support, they told me to buy a 70$ key, or install 10.6.8, then buy 10.7. Or bring it to them. I bought it online, and there's no Apple store nearby.
I'm so disappointed with 10.7 and I'm just stuck with it. I posted in the Apple forums and everywhere else I could, asking for help. Nothing.
What is my best bet? What should I do now?
