    Restoring Lion Os on MBA 2011
    Hi Everyone


    I have this problem,

    Yesterday i loged into Recovery HD on my MacBook Air 2011, i erased my Macintosh HD to make a clean restore i thought the Lion USB can run on the MBA 2011 and after erasing the Macintosh HD I rebooted to the USB Installation but i got STOP SIGN so the MBA cant boot from the flash so i searched the web it seems that apple don't allow it for new MacBooks ..

    Than i try to do INTERNET RECOVERY But it take so long and i live in libya where internet speed is vey low so i couldn't make it ...

    Now i have MBA in recovery mode and USB Lion Installation and i want to restore the MBA with any way other than internet restoring as my internet connection is very slow and its disconnected always


    REGARDS

    No other way other than try to find a faster connection. Why did you erase the drive in the first place? Rarely, if ever does OS X need to be erased and reinstalled.
