Re: What if the harddrive crashes on new iMac?

For the entire OS or just the recovery tools? It downloads and executes the recovery tools first, then if you want to do a full reinstall it downloads the OS or you can do the other stuff like restore from TM. I have a 50Mb connection and it didn't DL the recovery tools and the OS in 30 minutes. It took a long time.

I was referring to the OS download. I've done it 3 times now and it has never taken anywhere close to 2 hours.
