How do you recover from CSC with no disc?
It's so perfect such things don't happen anymore.
But seriously the Mac Store download comes with a restore .dmg which you can burn to a bootable DVD. Can also be used to restore a custom partition on the disk to use as a restore volume (the final version of Lion will most likely include a utility similar to Boot Camp Assistant to set this up).
Thanks! Had the question asked by a mac hater on another board and had no idea what the answer was.
There is going to be a recovery partition, but that won't help in the event of a HDD failure.
Nope best to create a DVD backup as per link above. I guess new Macs will come with a separate SD partition or USB stick for recovery.
I'm just saying what's on the features page...
Search the page for "partition" and it will take you right to the recovery section.
I like how that section is labeled "Internet Restore and Utilities". Some people have mentioned the partition is only 800MB is that's true, it sound like a reinstallation would require downloading it again. Although in theory if you have a good Time Machine backup, that shouldn't be an issue.
Now if your disk dies, the partition goes with it. It's best to have a recovery DVD as well. Especially one you can do a clean install from.
Apple is eating their words on this one.
They bashed the other companies for including recovery partitions, on their hard drives for many years. (It takes up so much space they claimed)
Now suddenly Apple wakes up, and decides they are going to copy the others and include a recovery partition on LION...
Apple Karma eh?
I never heard apple say that, do you have any links? I'm not saying they never said that but rather I'd be interested in reading what thy had to say.
btw, they also said the iPhone never needed multitasking and look what they did
