I have a disk image of OS X lion 10.7.2. I have read that certain disc images won't work to restore Macs that shipped with Lion installed.

I was wondering if my 10.7.2 disc image can be used to restore a Mac that shipped with Lion?

If you install it to a flash drive, it might create a restore partition on that drive. Then you can boot off that drive. –  rubixibuc Feb 27 '12 at 14:31
