Help reinstalling osx mavericks to replaced hard drive

Posted on Nov 30, 2013 12:57 PM, Apple Support Communities - MacBook Pro | discussions.apple.com

I have a mid 2010 13inch Mac book pro....  My hard drive fried so I replaced it with a 750 gb hard drive. Now I have a problem... After booting up mac and running it in recovery mode, i verified my hard drive and all but now I have a big problem... Using Internet recoverey to reinstall Mac os. When I click to run the installation for the Mac os download it tells me I have to wait for them to verify my computer it stops and tells me that error occurred and to restart application and try again... So after another reboot it still tells me the same thing.... How do I fix this? I have no DVD of the system files to boot from so this is my only option.
