Apple has released Lion Recovery Disk Assistant allowing users to create their own Lion recovery/reinstall on an external disk (such as a USB flash drive). Specifically, this drive lets users reinstall Lion, repair the disk using Disk Utility, restore from a Time Machine backup, or browse the web with Safari.

About Lion Recovery Disk Assistant
Built right into OS X Lion, Lion Recovery lets you repair disks or reinstall OS X Lion without the need for a physical disc.

The Lion Recovery Disk Assistant lets you create Lion Recovery on an external drive that has all of the same capabilities as the built-in Lion Recovery: reinstall Lion, repair the disk using Disk Utility, restore from a Time Machine backup, or browse the web with Safari.

Note: In order to create an external Lion Recovery using the Lion Recovery Assistant, the Mac must have an existing Recovery HD.

To create an external Lion Recovery, download the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant application. Insert an external drive, launch the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant, select the drive where you would like to install, and follow the on screen instructions.

When the Lion Recovery Disk Assistant completes, the new partition will not be visible in the Finder or Disk Utility. To access Lion Recovery, reboot the computer while holding the Option key. Select Recovery HD from the Startup Manager.

For detailed information on this update, please visit: About Lion Recovery Disk Assistant.


Lion Recovery Disk can be downloaded from Apple's support website.

With this recovery partition creator, there is now an official path to perform a clean install without Snow Leopard firstly.

Mac OS X Lion is available as an upgrade to Mac OS X version 10.6.6 Snow Leopard from the Mac App Store for $29.99 USD. Lion is the easiest OS X upgrade and at around 4GB, it is about the size of an HD movie from the iTunes Store. Users who do not have broadband access at home, work or school can download Lion at Apple retail stores and in August, Lion will be made available on a USB thumb drive through the Apple Store for $69 USD. Mac OS X Lion Server requires Lion and is available from the Mac App Store for $49.99 USD
