    Fresh Installing Lion, on a lion loaded mac
    Hi all,

    I have a 2011 macbook pro, which came with Lion pre-installed. NO disk.

    I want to completely wipe my HD and reinstall Lion. All of the answers for this on the net are for people who have the boot disc, USB or have previously had snow leopard on their systems.
    How do I do this?

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    Be prepared, it'll take a couple (or several) hours to download the OS to install.
