    Trying to do a clean install of Lion is possibly the most convoluted, painful and stupid process ever. Apple, this is full of fail.

  2. @ianbetteridge Can't you just write an install DVD from the InstallESG.dmg and use that?

  3. @ianbetteridge The key to Lion is that when you find an odd feature, invoke, "But your mother wouldn't want to...."

  4. @ianbetteridge More info? I'm about to try this since my current upgrade-install is buggy. (Planning to vape then use the install partition)

  8. @RichardR That's the "not supported by Apple" method. Try it the way they tell you to. It's utterly broken.

    @yoz Do not, for the love of God, try and do it the way Apple tells you to. You'll be there for days. I'm actually in Day Three.

  9. @ianbetteridge Jesus. OK. Pointer to "the way Apple tells you to"?

  10. @BodyofBreen My mother wouldn't fix her broken Mac. She'd get me to. And I'd tell her to get a sodding PC at this rate.

  12. @ianbetteridge "But your mother wouldn't want you to tell her to buy a PC." See, it works for everything! Brilliant.

  13. @RichardR There's no disk image with the retail version. Well, there is, but it's hidden because that's not the supported way.

  15. @RichardR Oh it works if you delve into the installer package (which is deleted after you install once!), dig out the image and burn stuff
