How do I make a homemade installer copy from my used Lion preloaded Macbook pro without the "Install Mac OS X Lion.app?" I'm ready with a new 8gig thumb drive and pages 841-3 of Mac OS X Lion Missing Manual, but without the Lion.app am stuck. Thanks!
Btw, I wasn't SHOUTING - ur s/w apparently doesn't like OS X in caps. ;)

As page 842 explains, the "Install Mac OS X Lion.app" program only appears in your Applications folder when you first buy Lion (before you actually install Lion).
If you've already installed Lion, you have to re-download the installer app as described in the box on page 835. Unfortunately, that means downloading the whole 4-gigabyte installer.
I hope that helps.
