Install OS X Lion from a bootable flash drive

Bill Detwiler shows you how to create a bootable USB flash drive and use it to install OS X Lion.

When Apple launched OS X Lion, they did so exclusively through their online App Store. Two months later, the company began selling USB flash drives loaded with Lion for $69 (a $40 premium over the operating system's $29 download price).

Luckily, you don't need to spend the extra cash. In this week's TR Dojo episode, I show you how to create a bootable OS X Lion install drive, using your own 8GB USB flash drive.
