Hi James,

Not sure you can get ML running on 2007 hardware... but Lion should work

Just need to burn the Lion installer to a USB stick (anyone who has
downloaded it from the app store should be able to redownload it then you
could use Lion Diskmaker (free app) to burn to a bootable USB) and you can
do a clean install skipping the Snow Leopard antics.
