Need Disk
Authored by: Kalak on Jun 24, '11 01:48:36PM

Need a disk, or it's not happening. My university stopped selling centralized licenses, so it's left to the departments to purchase from Apple. My department doesn't have enough to qualify for the minimum number needed for the education purchasing methods, so we're in the cold.

I am, and always will be, an Idiot.

Use Finder to locate the Mac OS X Lion installer, right-click and select "Show Package Contents." Find the SharedSupport folder and look for a file named "InstallESD.dmg." This is the Lion Boot Disc image.
Copy the "InstallESD.dmg" file to another folder, such as your desktop. Launch Disk Utility and click the burn button. Select the "InstallESD.dmg" copy as the image to burn, insert a DVD, and in a few minutes, you will have a brand new Lion Boot Disc.
