I understand that Migration Assistant can assist in moving from MacBook running 10.6 to a new MacBook Air running 10.7. But how is it to manually upgrade to 10.7 Lion with a clean start?

Before downloading it make sure that the Firewall is turned Off in the security tab. Also under Sharing Check the box of Internet sharing and also Check the boxes if it gives you any Ignore warnings and then activate it. After that just restart Migration Assistant and run it.

The solution provided looks good. But still the solution used if from Migration Assistant. Nevertheless, "This update addresses an issue with the Migration Assistant application in Mac OS X Snow Leopard that prevents transfer of your personal data, settings, and compatible applications from a Mac running Mac OS X Snow Leopard to a new Mac running Mac OS X Lion."

This should work. http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1420
