    Hi all,

    Have the Lion GM dmg burnt to a DVD. Held 'option' upon restart, chose 'reinstall' Lion, takes about 30 mins to complete whereupon it brings up the message:

    "Can't download the additional components needed to install Mac OS X"

    I then reboot into an unaltered SL 10.6.8.

    Same with WiFi on or off.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Tried searching these (and other) forums but no one has written about this error message...

    Thank you kindly for any advice.

    Don't burn it to a DVD. Worked fine for me without it.

    So just mount the DMG and upgrade from there?

    Thanks for your advice. Much appreciated.

    I ran it from my HDD, so copy the installer from the DMG onto your machine.
