i have a macbook pro 17" and a iMac 27", they came with snow leopard pre-installed, i have downloaded the LION from app store and copied the Image file contents to a DVD, now i want to do a fresh installation on my both machines, but i don't know one thing, When we install the Fresh LION will it ask for any serial number or something like that or not? if yes then from where i can find it?
Please help me
Thanks

Heya,

Absolutely no serials just install away! it's essentially that easy.

I'd recommend doing a complete fresh install.
