Creating a Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Bootable Flash Drive 206

WankerWeasel writes "With the release of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion this month, Apple will no longer offer a bootable installer DVD and is making 10.7 Lion available only through the App Store. This guide provides quick instructions on how to use the OS X 10.7 Lion installer to create a bootable flash drive (instructions for making a bootable DVD are also included on the blog)."

    I believe you misunderstood me. The new HDDs are _like_ the new screws. New Apple HDDs don't use the new screws (that I know of), but they do use proprietary firmware and hardware that makes thermal sensors on the Mobo go crazy if the new firmware isn't present. So you have to buy only Apple HDDs (which have in recent history been nothing more than SATA drives that cost twice to three times as much; now at least there's a reason for the increased cost, albeit a bad reason). They'll do it with RAM, keyboards, mice, graphics cards, etc. soon enough.
