    Go back to Apple and ask them to ship it out if necessary to get Lion reinstalled.

    Have you reset PRAM? Then retry the recovery install...

    Do you have an external hard drive? Maybe one solution is to go to an Apple Store and see if they will clone one of their display models onto it so you can clone it onto yours?

    I wonder if this has anything to do with 10.7.1 having come out since the new MBAs were released?

    There's a separate build of 10.7.1 released for the 2011 Minis/MBA's from Apple:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1439

    Maybe Internet Recovery is getting confused by trying to get 11a2063 and only receiving 11B2118 which is the build number for the 2011 Macs in 10.7.1

    That being said, I seriously doubt the Apple Store will let you clone one of their retail machines onto an external - those machines have Final Cut, etc... all on there and would have an Admin password that you wouldn't know. I'd most likely recommend taking it to a genius bar to get them to reinstall from media or call Applecare and see if they'll send you a magical Lion USB restore drive.

    He already said he has.


    Plus you don't know where he is located, it could the nearest apple store is a couple hours away and after not having any luck the last he went there wants to fix the problem himself.

    So a reseller then, funny if you had taken them up when you first took it in it would've been done by now.

    Good that 10.7.2 beta worked, hopefully it means 10.7.2 will have all models on the same build number again.

    Easy.

    Extract BaseSystem.dmg. Mount. Run the installer. It will connect to internet and will download the right version.
