10.7: A solution for MacBook Air and Mac mini lack of install media
Authored by: agentx on Oct 18, '11 06:33:31AM

Still reckon the best way is to download the Installer for your model again.
Create a USB flash installer disk from InstallESD.dmg file inside the Install Mac OX bundle.
It is a policy of mine to immediately create a USB recovery stick before you do anything.

Apple should be leaving the Install files after imaging the machines...but they are not PITA !
Also recovery partition cannot be installed on a RAID set and internet recovery fails as well !
