    How do you make a 10.7.3 bootable USB thumb drive? I have the Retail 10.7.3 ESD image so what do I do? I'm on a new Mac Mini 10.7.3 with a couple of Sony USB thumb drives.

    Thanks

    There's an app from apple that you can download that will do it for you.

    I think you are referring to the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant that will help you make a recovery USB key, but that is not a full Lion install. It still downloads Lion over the Internet to do an install.
