    Installed Lion - it is no longer in downloads folder.

    Is there anyway to create a bootable usb for Lion?

    Thanks.

    go into app store, hold opt and select purchases....the Lion will go from installed to install, click install and cancel before it starts the installer...copy the installer app to a safe location.

    Thanks. I get "A newer version of this app is already installed on this computer". How can that be.

    Solution

    Finally got it to work, and used the following URL that worked great.
