    I experience perfectly how to do that, having only completed producing a disk for myself. First you will require to download, from the App store, Lion (again). It acquires removed once you do the set up.
    To download it again, go to the App Store and choose Bought. This should display you Lion like being set up.

    Now click with one of the other sections, Characteristic for example, then keep down the option key and click the Bought segment again. It should display Lion on Set up quite rather Set up. It is finicky and may bring a some attempts to produce it work.

    Once you acquire it to work, download it. Detect the downloaded file, and right click it and select "Show Package Contents". Navigate your mode to "Shared Support" and detect InstallESD.dmg
    Drag it to the desktop, it will produce an alias. Release Disk Utility, keep a blank DVD in your burner and then click the Burn button at the top left.

    You will be prompted for the location of the file to be burned. Navigate to the Desktop and select the InstallESD.dmg file. Fall out the rest of the prompts and at the end of the session, you will have a fully bootable DVD of Lion. Just snag here is the second download, it may bring a though to acquire it to obey you.

    Later my initial set up of Lion, I allow the installer acquire away from me earlier I could produce a disk. Still, I was capable to apply the original Snow Leopard disk to begin the MBP with Lion set up to repair the disk. Not certain what else I could have done with that disk. Anyway, thanks for the tip! It worked. great!

    Following macnerd10 (over) I detected the Lion setting up disc in my applications folder. I then followed your method beginning "Detect the downloaded file..." It did work (or at least I made a DVD which ran up to the point when it was around to (re)set up Lion.)

    Lion makes a hidden 650MB partition with the hard drive where it acquires set up. This is the recovery disk. If something goes wrong with the OS, one can begin the computer and press Option key (or command/Apple+R) instantly later the chime, and with the gray display that hidden restore disk will be visible. If you click with it, it opens up some alternatives having Disk Utility that can repair the damaged OS on the hard drive or substitute the OS. This produces making a bootable disk less necessary.

    I second this post. I made an set up disk, but when I re-began on the alternative key, I abruptly had three begin up disk options. The disk I made was unnecessary.

    Re-set up Lion unless you have a broadband internet connection. It will start your Mac and let you to do few Disk Utility things but if the OS is demoralize and requires substituting, you are in for the 4 GB download once again. Including the set up disk handy means that you will be rear in business in a quarter of the time that the download and set up would bring.

    It does download the complete enchilada again. If one has a Time Machine backup, this alternative is the best and fastest. If not, the Mod's clarification and advice should be fell out. For your information, the recovery HD contains Terminal, Disk Utility, Safari for online assist, and two recovery ways (reset up through Internet and restore through Time Machine support). If the hard drive is toast, none of these alternatives would work understandably.
