    Hey guys, I don't have the Install OSX Lion application listed under "Applications" like other people do. I upgraded from SL, would that have something to do with it? I'm new to Mac so I'm not sure where else it would be. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

    Open the App Store on your mac and then Hold the Option key while you click on Purchased apps. It will then allow you to re-download lion again, or at least it did for me a couple of months ago.

    Not working for me. Anyone else??

    ----------

    In the App Store when I go to OS X Lion it says "Install" instead of the amount of money it costs, if I click "Install" will it re-install or will I be able to just not start the re-install?

    Sorry... disregard above tips.

    Do this:

    Open App Store - Click on Purchases - find your Lion in the list and HOLD the Option key and Click on the Lion icon on the left. It takes you to the OS X Lion page where under the Lion icon on the upper left, it says Install instead of Installed. Click. If it doesn't show install the first time, try it again. I just tested it and it works.
