If you have an older Mac that is not compatible with the latest version of macOS, you may still be able to install Mac OS X Lion 10.7 using a retail bootable .iso file. This is a disk image file that contains the entire operating system and can be burned to a DVD or copied to a USB flash drive. You can then use it to boot your Mac and install Lion on it.


In this article, we will show you how to get the Mac OS X Lion 10.7 retail bootable .iso file and how to use it to install Lion on your Mac.


Where to Get the Mac OS X Lion 10.7 Retail Bootable .iso File




There are two ways to get the Mac OS X Lion 10.7 retail bootable .iso file:


  • Download it from the Internet Archive. The Internet Archive is a non-profit organization that preserves digital content for future generations. It has a collection of software, including old versions of Mac OS X. You can find the Mac OS X Lion 10.7 (11A511) retail DVD image file here: https://archive.org/details/install-mac-os-x-lion-10.7.0-lion. This is a 4.72 GB file that you can download for free.



  • Download it from Apple Support. Apple still provides the Mac OS X Lion installer for older systems that are not compatible with the latest macOS. You can find it here: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL2077?locale=en_US. This is a 4.72 GB file that you can download for $19.99.



Once you have downloaded the file, you will need to convert it to an .iso format if it is not already in that format. You can use a free tool like Disk Utility or hdiutil to do that.


How to Convert the Mac OS X Lion 10.7 Retail Bootable File to an .iso Format




If you have downloaded the file from the Internet Archive, it will be in a .dmg format, which is a disk image format used by Mac OS X. You will need to convert it to an .iso format, which is a universal disk image format that can be used by any operating system.


If you have downloaded the file from Apple Support, it will be in a .app format, which is an application bundle that contains the installer and other files. You will need to extract the .dmg file from the .app bundle and then convert it to an .iso format.


You can use either Disk Utility or hdiutil to convert the file to an .iso format. Disk Utility is a graphical application that comes with Mac OS X, while hdiutil is a command-line tool that you can use in Terminal.


Here are the steps to convert the file using Disk Utility:


  • Launch Disk Utility from Applications/Utilities or Spotlight.



  • Drag and drop the .dmg or .app file into the left sidebar of Disk Utility.



  • Select the file and click on File > New Image > Image from [file name].



  • In the Save As dialog box, choose a name and location for the new image file.



  • In the Format drop-down menu, choose DVD/CD master.



  • Click on Save and wait for the process to finish.



  • You will get a new image file with a .cdr extension in the chosen location.



  • Rename the file extension from .cdr to .iso.



Here are the steps to convert the file using hdiutil:


  • Open Terminal from Applications/Utilities or Spotlight.



  • Navigate to the folder where you have saved the .dmg or .app file using the cd command.



  • If you have a .app file, use this command to extract the .dmg file from it: hdiutil attach -noverify -nobrowse [file name].app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg. Replace [file name] with the actual name of your file.



  • If you have a .dmg file, use this command to convert it to an .iso file: hdiutil convert [file name].dmg -format UDTO -o [new file name].iso. Replace [file name] with the actual name of your file and [new file name] with your desired name for the new file.



  • If you have extracted a .dmg file from a .app file, use this command to convert it to an .iso file: hdiutil convert /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg -format UDTO -o [new file name].iso. Replace [new file name] with your desired name for the new file.



  • You will get a new image file with a .iso.cdr extension in your current folder.



  • Rename the file extension from .iso.cdr to .iso.



How to Burn or Copy






Once you have converted the file to an .iso format, you can burn it to a DVD or copy it to a USB flash drive. You will need either a blank DVD disc or a USB flash drive with at least 8 GB of space.


You can use either Disk Utility or dd command to burn or copy the file to a DVD or USB flash drive. Disk Utility is a graphical application that comes with Mac OS X, while dd is a command-line tool that you can use in Terminal.


Here are the steps to burn or copy the file using Disk Utility:


  • Launch Disk Utility from Applications/Utilities or Spotlight.

  • Click on Restore and confirm your action when prompted.



  • Wait for the process to finish and eject your DVD disc or USB flash drive when done.



Here are the steps to burn or copy the file using dd command:


  • Open Terminal from Applications/Utilities or Spotlight.



  • Insert your blank DVD disc or connect your USB flash drive to your Mac.



  • Type this command in Terminal and press Enter: diskutil list. This will show you a list of all disks connected to your Mac.



  • Identify your DVD disc or USB flash drive by its name and size and note its disk identifier (e.g., /dev/disk2).



  • Type this command in Terminal and press Enter: diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskX. Replace /dev/diskX with your actual disk identifier (e.g., /dev/disk2). This will unmount your DVD disc or USB flash drive so that it can be written by dd command.



Type this command in Terminal and press Enter: sudo dd if=[file path] of=/dev/diskX bs=1m. Replace [file path] with


the actual path of your .iso file (e.g., /Users/username/Desktop/Lion.iso) and /dev/diskX with your actual disk identifier (e.g., /dev/disk2). This will write your .iso file byte by byte onto your DVD disc or USB flash drive.Note: Be very careful when using dd command as it can overwrite any data on your disk without warning. Make sure you specify


the correct disk identifier and do not interrupt the process until it is done.Note: You may need
