    I'm looking to fresh install Lion and I am wondering how I would go about doing that, id prefer not to create a USB or DVD. Thanks in advance!

    I suggest you search a bit more deeply. If you don't create a USB or DVD with Lion on it, just where do you expect the installation to come from? Do you have a clone? Do you know why you want to do a "fresh" installation?

    You can do it from the Recovery partition, but it will take forever even with a decent internet connection.
