Great, in the early development weeks there was a rumor about leaving c2d behind. My MBP 2.4ghz c2d it's still a nice machine with years left in the tank.

Nice, I really need to reinstall the OS on my MBP as SL is doing all sorts of wrong things lately, and I'd like to hold off for Lion.

It was only the first Dual 2 Core processors they used that didn't support x64 instructions or something like that lol. I've been running DP4 on the 2.4 c2d and it works fine.

Core 2 Duo = Supported

Core Duo/Core Solo = Not supported

Exactly. People really need to start reading Apple's website. It says nothing about only certain Core 2 Duo processors being support.

From Apple:

Ensure you are using a 64-bit, Intel-based Mac running either Mac OS X v10.6.7 Snow Leopard or Mac OS X Lion Developer Preview 4.

You must have at least 8GB of free disc space to install Mac OS X Lion GM Seed.

So that pretty much confirms that App Store is the only way of getting Lion and no clean-install option exists?

I guess you missed the part where Apple announced about a month ago that the App Store was the only way to get Lion?

That's not the same as "No clean install option" - you just need to make your own boot disc.

Believe me, it's *easy* to do.

Well yes, download it... extract the file, burn it to a DVD and you can have a clean install. (I hope this hasn't changed)

Or copy it to a thumb drive.

So we're expecting the Lion burned dvd/thumb to be bootable?

It's definitely bootable.

Obviously not if you just copy the installer application to a DVD/drive. Google for instructions - it's dead simple.
