I got all the latest downloads last night for my mac book pro. I went ahead and installed them. A quarter the way through the power in my house went off and I had low battery life so everything shut down.
Now when I want to start my computer the screen goes grey and it says" You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button several seconds or press the restart button"
When I do this it just goes back to the same screen over and over again. Help !!!

Apple has made this feature free, and fairly simple. You should first make sure you have a backup of your hard drive on an external drive (easiest to complete with the TimeMachine feature of your Macbook Pro).
Open the App Store app and select the Featured or Top Charts tab. You can search for Yosemite, although Top Charts will usually list it as #1 in the Top Free apps.
Click on the Download button for Yosemite wherever it appears (either in the search list, or in Top Charts). Follow the prompts.
Depending on your connection speed and the specs of your macbook pro, the installation will take one to four hours.
Of course, you will have to have an Apple ID to download anything from the App Store.
If you don't have an Apple ID and don't know how to get one, please ask another question on FIXYA.

You will need some install disks to even begin working on your issue.
Find someone with the same model MacBook Pro and borrow the disks.
Buy a copy of Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) and use them. If you are going to buy a set you might as well update to Snow Leopard (10.6)
Check eBay for install disks but make sure they are for the same model MacBook Pro.
Contact an Apple service center and purchase a replacement set of install disks.
Once you have a install CD, I would recommend backing up your system by making a disk image of the hard drive to an external drive. Then doing a clean install and then using the Migration Assistant to restore your user files to the clean install on your hard drive.
you need to insert the leopard or snow leopard dvd into your macbook while you are bootcamp to win xp.
run the bootcamp and it will install the drivers for sound, nic, wifi etc.
also download the latest bootcamp drivers from apple.com
