I've just got a Macbook Pro (Mid 2012) model with Ivy Bridge, and I wish to download Lion from the Mac App Store. Reason, is I whist to create usb bootable flash, as I have a few bought for there stuff too. Now, the problem comes: I'm unable to download. Is the Restore Partition the only way for this to work ? Since I'll be downloading 4 Gig or so anyway, I'd rather make it worth while afterwards with a USB drive for future use. (Buying from Apple is not going to be an option, as I can make my own).
