    As far as I know, you can't. It's a one-time download, and if you didn't copy over "Install Mac OS X," you're out of luck.

    Unfortunately, you're SOL, at least until the next beta seed. At that time, you're prompted to re-generate a new redemption code to download the new seed.

    Why not just read the developer forums and find out how to get a new code for the current beta?

    I believe each ADC account is only limited to one redemption code per seed.

    As I said, read the developer forums, specifically the FAQ in the Installation subforum of the Lion forum, and you will see that this is not the case. You can email dev support and have them generate a new code for you.

    well i've emailed them now explaining what happened and it does they will give out new codes , doesnt exactly say for deleting the lion download but for errors and that, and the reason i formatted the drive was because lion wouldn't boot after it had installed, so i should get a new key.
