    Can I just wipe the HDD, and use the Lion boot disc I created via the optical drive? That's the standard method I'm used to.

    As our friends said was correct..

    Turning on your MAC->Inserting in USB->Opening USB->Going to Disk Utilities->Backup and then install... These are absolutely correct. Following this is nothing wrong .
    See more for clarity the below video:
