Lion Internet Restore Comes to Mid-2010 MacBooks and Mac minis

Posted on January 26, 2012 by

Apple released a firmware update today to bring Lion Internet Recovery to mid-2010 MacBooks and Mac minis through Software Update. Lion Internet Recovery is needed when installing a new blank hard drive, and lets you reinstall OS X Lion on your Mac over the internet instead of a DVD or flash drive.

A firmware update was released on Tuesday for the 13-inch MacBook Pros to support Lion Internet Recovery, but the the 15-inch or 17-inch have not received it yet. My guess is that this update will be released to the rest of the Mac line within the next week or two.
