How to reinstall Mac OS X Lion
  

I just installed the lion, nevertheless I had some troubles. The thing is that I had a lot of applications in folders in the Applications folder. And those who are in the folders still there. Even though I have new. For instance there are now two iCal, Safari, Mail, App Store and so on. I am capable to eliminate some dragging to the trash; nevertheless not all of them disappear when emptying. So I reinstall it on Lion for all duplicities disappear. So how to reinstall?

Restart your computer while pressing 'alt'. This is how we do a clean installation of a Mac OS X lion

In fact, restart and hold "Command + R". This starts the computer to the recovery partition. Follow the installation instructions.

Note that if you choose to erase and install, everything will be gone from the partition that is installed on. In addition, you must have an Internet connection to reinstall.

Is assumed to be where downloads are going. By default it will be the "Downloads" folder unless you have chosen another destination, as the desktop. (Or, the browser you are using) Safari preferences confirm this for you.

Reboot the system by holding the option (or "alt") and select the "recovery of HD", the boot volume. You can also do this by booting while holding the "Command" key and "R".

When started, choose the option to install OS X (the first option) and go behind the onscreen commands.

As far as I know, that "disappears" after the current installation, when you download and before you click install, you should be capable to locate in the Applications folder, unless you saved the installation package is likely to be passed.

Re: How to reinstall Mac OS X Lion

That's right, not be moved Apple applications or put them in folders, you may not be updated or replaced appropriately if OS X is predictable to locate them. (A number of applications act likewise.)

If some are not empty, while emptying the trash, hold down the Option key while emptying. If you reinstall, same thing will happen.

Re: How to reinstall Mac OS X Lion

Could enter the Lion Re-install the utility and asked Internet connection. I connected the Ethernet cable ad directed by the utility, but could not connect to the Internet. Actually, my cable internet connection requires a password to connect, but the reinstall utility did not like the password and I failed. However, for the password, etc. Wi-Fi.
