Why Pay For A Lion Boot Disk? Use This App To Make Your Own

lion-disk-maker

When Lion was released, we linked to a page detailing how to create your own bootable Lion drive. But if you absolutely must have a GUI and don’t want to go mucking around in the app package, you might find this little tool useful.

Lion Diskmaker is a simple app that extracts the necessary items from an embryonic Lion install (i.e. the package you downloaded from the Mac App Store) and writes them to a USB drive or DVD. That’s it! A single-serving app I’m sure many will find helpful.

All you need is a four-gig removable volume (SD card, thumbdrive, DVD) and a ready-to-install copy of Lion. Don’t forget to thank the author by donating or at least following.
