10.7: Create your own Recovery HD
Authored by: cagg on Jul 25, '11 09:18:24PM
This didn't work for me. Although I was able to copy the contents of BaseSystem.dmg to a USB flash drive, it wouldn't boot. It seemed to boot, that is I could select it on the boot screen after holding Option, and it seemed to be loading with the spinning progress indicator, however after about a minute the Apple logo changed to a circle with a slash.

I agree with David Allen's recommendation: just create a bootable USB flash drive or DVD from the full installer. This works, just requires a larger capacity USB flash drive, but they aren't that expensive.
