I've recently purchased a MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) that came with Lion, I then upgraded to Mountain Lion, I don't like Mountain Lion at all and I'd really preffer Lion, so now I want to downgrade to Lion. No I don't have a Time Machine nor a backup of what was before, and YES I do want to do a clean install of Lion (since I don't have any files to lose or whatever). Do I still have it as a Lion Recovery HD or is it now a Mountain Lion Recovery HD?? If not, is there any way I could get Lion back since I don't have it in the AppStore (It came with the MacBook Pro as mentioned above)??

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
