The HD in my MBP crashed too, last week. It ran under OSX.5.8. Got it replaced under Apple Care. Restored my Time Machine backup to it. Ran Software Update. And then the new HD turned out to have Snow Leopard installed on it! Which I did not order, or pay for...
So now I have a brandnew, fully restored HD, running under OSX.6.5!
(Mind you: this is the third
HD in this early 2009 MBP! Thank God for Time Machine).
I'm not complaining. But why? Why, if this is an Apple program, without any mentioning or publicity at all?
