    OS X app store upgrade
    Hi everyone,

    I have a question about upgrading from snow leopard to mountain lion using the app store. If I were to later decide to reformat my computer for whatever reason, would I first need to reinstall snow leopard and then upgrade again using the app store? And if that is the case how many times am I aloud to use the upgrade?

    Thanks,

    Franco

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Not if you burn to a USB thumb drive before running the installer. Follow Lion DiscMaker instructions and the thumb drive is bootable.

    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!

    Thank you for your reply. Sorry 'bout the late response but I was having difficulty with my username password and resetting it.
