Hello,

I bought some months ago MAC OS X LION online and from the App Store.
I need to re-install it but I never burnt a CD from it at that time.
Do you know where I can find the downloaded file to burn it ? I checked and it s not in the Application folder !?

Thanx a lot in advance

Ben

Start the App Store app then hold the option key when you click the "Purchases" tab. Now if you scroll down to your Lion purchase you will see it has enabled the "Install" choice. Click install and that will DL Lion to your Applications folder. Now make your bootable USB key/CD as described here.

When you download it the first time, it stores the install in the Applications, then after you run it the file is deleted. I did the install on all my macs by saving the "Install OSX Lion" to an external HDD then copying it to the other machines on my network.
