Trying to reinstall OS X lion

Hi I had a very small wine spill on keyboard ,I immediately turned it upside down disconnected battery and hardrive connections and left in airing cupboard for 2 days ..powered it up and it came on straight away connected to WiFi and all seemed good so tried to reinstall OS X and had all sorts problems saying disc locked etc etc this was when trying to reinstall Mac OS X El Capitan and now somehow it’s trying to install Mac OS X Lion but it’s saying select disc but there is no disc available…any ideas ,thanks

Update (11/29/2018)

Just one thing does it sound like the hard drive is ruined…anyone think it would be worth me buying another hd

Hi,

This MacBook model can’t run OS X El Capitan (Model A1181). It may be worth buying a new hard drive if you can get one for under $20 used. However, software support for this machine is non existent so maybe you should consider an upgrade.

Kind Regards Sam

It sounds like you are booting into OS X Utilities. You can download OS X if you have before through this tool. You can always check eBay for OS X Lion Copies just make sure that it is compatible with your model. I wouldn’t pay any more that $15 for a copy.

Kind regards Sam
