    I need to restore my MacBook, but when I put the disc in that it came with it says it can't be done. I'm assuming that's because it shipped with the old OS and now has Lion. I downloaded Lion from the app store. So I'm not sure how I'll go about restoring it. If anyone has any info on how to do it please let me know.
    Thanks guys!

    See http://www.macworld.com/article/161069/2011/07/make_a_bootable_lion_installer.html

    I just went through the process; worked like a charm.
