How can I make a USB install disk for OS X Lion?

David Hallengren August 13, 2011

I’ve downloaded and installed Mac OS X Lion. I want to install the operating system on my mom’s Mac and I don’t want to have to re-download the ISO. Is there any (free?) alternative?

    Another option is to copy the Lion Installation App from your Application directory to the other Mac using an external Hard Drive, a USB Stick or via File sharing.
