    Hey guys, im having a little trouble with making a osx lion installation boot cd. I downloaded lion and i couldn't find my 4.7gb disks, so i set lion installing and after the installation was complete i found 4.7gb disks. I cant find the lion app, ive had a quick search on the internet but cant find anything. Do i have to back up and do a clean install of snow leapord, then download lion and burn the disk the method macrumours have said, or can i find it somwhere :S :apple:

    The installer deletes itself after it is installed, since you don't have it or did not copy it before installation you are out of luck. You will have to use your recovery partition if something goes wrong or install to another mac using the App store, and copy it this time to make the DVD.
