I successfully installed OS X Lion 10.7 on my Mac PC. Then I tried to make a copy of the OS X to a disk but I could not locate it on my hard disk. I searched on the folders and subfolders of my hard disk to no avail. How can I make a copy of it and write it on a bootable disk? Can anyone please help me? Thank you.

Select the mounted volume in the sidebar then either click on the smolder symbol in the event that you have it set up or pick the alternative from the File menu, pop in a plain DVD and thats work done.
