It’s quiet easy to create a bootable DVD of OS X Lion (check out the below instructions and our video further down the page).

  • In Finder, go to Applications and right click on Install Mac OS X and select “Show Package Contents”.
  • Go to Contents > Shared Support
  • Copy InstallESD.dmg to your desktop
