    I've upgraded, and want to wipe my hard drive and re-install a fresh Lion system so that it is ready for sale.

    Before I'd just do that and re-install the system from the discs, but I don't have any discs with Lion.

    How do I do it?

    Many thanks

    :)

    Turn the computer on while holding the option key down. Select the Recovery HD. From there, select Disk utilities and erase the hard drive. Exit disk utilities and then select re-install Lion. It will then down load Lion and re install it.
