Note: before anyone asks to get the lion bootable USB stick or App Store version, it does not work with the MacBook Air as the DMG file is a special build for us owners.


Does anyone have the 10.7.4 yet and can anyone do a Internet Recovery (CMD + R) (install log) test to see if it is available yet for you?

I still get the 10.7.3 build not the 10.7.4 build dispite it been out a while now.

Cheers!

Which MBA do you have? I did a clean install from the app store version of 10.7.4 on my 2011 MBA, it worked fine.

Really? I have the 13" last MBA model. 128GB SSD. Did you get the 10.7.4 from the app store? Is the DMG build 11E53? Go to 'about this mac' then 'more info'. What build does yours say?

Sorry, I lied. I did a clean install using a 10.7.3 DMG from the App Store, then updated to 10.7.4 later.

Still, App store version earlier was compatible, the new one should be too.

I might still have that DMG on my NAS at home. I can check it's version for you when I get home.

EDIT: It doesn't work on MBA 100% so not sure where you got it or how you managed to do it. Also according to a lot of online blogs there problems with 10.7.4 InstallESD.dmg file with creating a boot stick.

I assume from your post your MBA came with Lion preinstalled? If it did, you can use this process to grab the DMG to make a USB installer for yourself.

This will get you the latest version custom built for your model.

Not sure if people are getting it.

I know exactly how to get the DMG file it just isn't 10.7.4 through Internet Recovery.

I was asking to see if anyone did successfully obtain the MBA restore for version 10.7.4.

That's odd. So you are not using the App store version, but the method I linked and that still won't give you the custom 10.7.4 version you need?

Will give it a go n get back. When I read it I thought it said something else.

Ah this works a treat, sorry when I was using Internet Recovery it was only trying to bring down 10.7.3 DMG not 10.7.4.

I have created a new SDHC boot with OSX 10.7.4! Thanks.

PS. I booted into recovery from the SDHC and got an error message 'there was a problem installing Mac OSX'. I reset PRAM and the clean installer works now!

Great!

Update: 10.7.4 App Store version works fine on the MBA 13" Late 2011 model. Don't know how, but Apple must have incorporated the drivers.

Great news.
