    Not by using this method. You must be running 10.6.6 Snow Leopard to be able to run Lion by using this method. This method is a redeemable code for the Mac App Store to where the OS will begin to download immediately.

    To get Snow Leopard, you must purchase it the DVD (search "OS X Snow Leopard") from the Apple online store, install it, and then return to this page to buy the Lion upgrade. Please make sure your Mac is able to run Lion before purchasing any software.

    I hope this helps.
