Hi there,


I have a problem with my macbook pro (2011 series).

I wanted to make a clean install of Lion so I burned the internal DMG of Lion (InstallESD.dmg) to a DVD (and to a pendrive, and to a partition).

Also, I check that the md5 sum of the file is correct (comparing with a friend)


Then I deleted all the partitions and I tried to install Lion, but didn't work.

There is an error in the instalation, before starting. "There was a problem installing Mac OS X. Try reinstalling".


In the install log there are two errors, but I think they are normal, because the instalation process want to find a partition with MacOS Server. The errors are:


Failed to locate volume with UUID AA438896-3641-B662-C0760B37587D

Couldn't find Mac OS X (Server) install data.


The HDD it's in good state (I passed the tests of the Disk Utility).


Now I have a very expensive stone :) without an OS, and I can't install anything on it, because the Lion Instalation DVD doesn't want to work and my DVD of Snow Leopard is 600 kilometers far away (not my lucky day ;) )


Any ideas?


Thank you!!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)
