    Just wondering if after you have downloaded Lion from the App store, does it self instal or do you have to kick off an installer package to start the process?

    Just a bit gun shy of an OS self installing.

    The installer will download and open a window splash screen with a "Click here to install Lion". It doesn't install automatically.

    You can close the installer and install later if you want.

    It will launch the install package after it finishes the download. But you do have a choice to choose yes or no.

    Thanks for that guys.

    I don't mind Apps self installing but not an OS.
