    Friends,

    Even though Apple has chosen to "hide" the Lion on it's App Store, I "Option" keyed the updates tab and got it show up yesterday. I cant tell if Apple is still updating the Lion Installer as it did up to 10.7.4. If I re-download Lion today, will it include the latest v.10.7.5?

    Please help friends

    Now that I've finished re-downloading it right now, is there some way to verify it's v.10.7.5? I've gone to "Get Info" and it only gives the version info for the installer...I'm looking at the "InstallESD.dmg" under "Shared Content" because I want to make a new Install Disc from this updated image for my Mac in case of a tragedy...

    Well, its v.10.7.5 but now it's larger than a DVD-R so I need a DVD-R DL and my MacBook Pro won't burn those anymore (since about 2 years ago), died after a year...oh well.

    Why are you worried about a DVD? Grab yourself a $6 8 GB usb stick and make your install from that. Just use disk utility to partition it GUID partition scheme and format it HFS+ journaled before you "restore" InstallESD.dmg to it.

    As for figuring out what you have, you should be able to browse around inside InstallESD.dmg and look at file dates. A 10.7.5 installer will have August or September file dates on a lot of files. Whatever you do, don't run the install until you've backed up InstallESD.dmg because it deletes itself and you're faced with another 4+ GB download to get it back again.

    Yes, I had considered going that route but I'm so old-fashioned but I think I'll adapt to the new-age way of things.

    Thanks guys.

    For all people who have download problems regarding the Lion installer:
    1. Quit the MAS.
    2. Open the Activity Monitor application and select the "storeagent" daemon. Then select "Quit Process".
    3. Open the MAS, login in and download the Lion installer.

    Btw, the "InstallESD.dmg" checksums (10.7.5 11G56 MAS version) are:
    SHA-1: 2debf2637801981b8c0386b7cba35c4d8fe4416c
    MD5: 6a150ca4f2a1e9df82ab4f51c9466720

    Hi Mr. RetroFire,

    Just followed your instructions and "no dice", same error..."could not download, error 13" paraphrased.
