I have a 2012 MBA 13" that came with Mountain Lion pre-installed that I would like to run Snow Leopard and Lion from an external drive. I know you can't really run an OS that is older than the one installed, but I was wondering if there is any way I can bypass it and use SL or Lion?

Lion may be possible, but a little complicated. (Look for YouTube videos)

But Snow Leopard is not possible.

Anyway, there is no reason to run Lion, as Mountain Lion is the same, but with better performance.

How about running Snow Leopard in a Virtual Machine like VMware?

I have never used one so I would not know...

Any particular reason for wanting to run Snow Leopard?

I have software that can only run on SL and some features from ML are missing that were on Snow Leopard such as the Activity Window in Safari.
