There's something interesting about making these install USB drives. I recently did a clean install of OS X 10.7 and of course created a USB install drive using an 8 GB drive & OS X 10.7.4. After following the steps, I kept getting an error while in Disk Utility just before it finished created the Install drive. However, I then tried to mount the drive to see what would happen and to my surprise, it came up as a Mac OS X Install ESD drive (assumption that my iMac recognized it as an install drive).
Just to make sure the Install drive was never corrupted, I restarted my iMac and attempted to boot up to my Install Drive. It booted up fine & I was able to install OS X Lion 10.7.4 without any further issues throughout the install process. Perhaps the Disk Utility error should be ignored AFAIC.
