Step 1: Download Lion
From the Mac App Store or get it here at extratorrent, If you have paid for it from the Mac App store you can so if your Internet connection isn't super fast, you may want to plan to get some other stuff done while you wait. As soon as the download is complete, exit out of the installation prompt. We don't want to do an install right now

in Your Applications Folder) Locate the Lion installation program or if you have the DMG file it will make life much easier
Step 3: Right-Click on the Installer, Select "Show Package Contents"
Right click or control-click on the program icon and select "Show Package Contents." Now, you want to browse to the "Shared Support" folder inside of "Contents" and locate a file called "InstallESD. DMG." This is the file we will use to create our bootable Lion image.Copy this file to your desktop or another folder you have easy access to. if you have the dmg file just keep it on your desktop
Step 4: Start Disk Utility
Open up Disk Utility (it's in the Utilities folder in Applications). At this point, you should see the various hard drives connected to your Mac. If you haven't already plugged in an empty USB thumb drive or a hard drive with an empty partition, do that now.
Step 5a: Insert a Blank DVD
For users that want to create a DVD for installation purposes, go ahead and put it in your Mac. In Disk Utility, click the Burn" icon and then select the "installESD.dmg" file that we just copied to our desktop.
Step 5b: Select the USB Drive

Click Restore. After the image is burned to USB or DVD, restart your computer by holding down the option key. You will now be given an option to boot from the DVD or USB drive. Go through the installation, ready to enjoy a new, clean install of Lion.For the Uber-Scared Apple will be selling OS X Lion on USB thumbdrives in its stores in August for $69 but fook that! You can buy several 8GB USB thumb drives for that price, so my advice is to skip the Apple release and just burn your own Lion installer copy
