Screw the Mac App Store, burn a bootable Lion disk

| Friday, June 10th, 2011

After working with Lion for a bit, I realized just how annoying it’s going to be to upgrade my machine that doesn’t spend any time on the internet (don’t ask), so after poking around a little bit on The Google, I noticed that our very own Stephen Hackett stumbled on an awesome little trick to get a Bootable Lion disk image that I can use.

I should probably say off the top, from what we hear, once you buy Lion on the Mac App Store, an entry will appear in your purchased software section of the Mac App Store. From there you’ll be able to upgrade machines on your network. Currently you’re supposed to buy a version of Snow Leopard for every Mac on your network, unless you buy a family pack. So this may change in the future, by the time Lion actually ships. Keep that in mind.

Anyway, here’s how you get a bootable Lion disk.

Install away.
