Help I deleted my hard drive
I am trying to upgrade my Mid-2012 Macbook Pro so I started by erasing my hard drive.
I am a rookie so I messed up and didn't realize it would delete my OS also. I was on Mojave.
Now, when I do CMD+R at startup, it only offers for me to reinstall LION.
Does anyone have any advice?
I really would like to be on Mojave because it is much better..., right?
I'm planning on putting in a new battery, a Samsung 860 EVO SSD, and 2x8GB of Corsair RAM after that.
Does anyone have any good advice they can offer in this situation? Thanks
