Lion Internet Recovery for older 2010 Macs

By Richard Mallion

Apple has released new Firmware Updates for the older 2010-model Macs, including the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and iMac. The update adds Internet Recovery for Lion. Internet Recovery enables installation of Mac OS X 10.7 via an internet connection. This is intended for use on a failed hard drive or a blank drive that’s never had OS X installed on it.
All Macs introduced from 2010 onward now have access to Internet Recovery features  with the exception of the Mac Pro which so far has been left out.
