    Did you install it already? It deletes itself after installation.

    Yes I installed it already, guess I'll have to download it again.

    Thanks

    Yes, download on another Mac. Save it, then install. Sorry.

    That's weird, you can't download it again once it's installed, the button you normally use to download it is inactive and says installed over it. Don't know how to help you there bud.

    Option-Click the buy button in the MAS and it should let you redownload again.

    Do you already have a "Install Mac OS X Lion" folder sitting in your Downloads folder?

    Awesome tip! I installed Lion without getting the disc image first. I had to option-click on any Lion link in the App Store, then it should show the price button. I had to option-click that, which turned into a green buy button and then I option-clicked that and it asked if I would like to download it again.

    At first, when I was only option-clicking on the green buy button it said I already had it installed or something. The above was the only way I could get it to work for me.
