Join Christopher Breen for an in-depth discussion in this video Create a bootable installer drive, part of Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Tips and Tricks.
If you've watched my Mountain Lion Essential Training course, you know that…you can boot your Mac into something called the Recovery HD partition.…And this is where you can use some included tools to perform a number of…tasks, including verifying and repairing your hard drive and re-installing Mountain Lion.…The problem with the re-install option, is that the Recovery HD partition doesn't…include include a copy of the installer. Instead, when you choose to re-install OS…10, you're taken to the Mac app store where you have to download it again.…Which can take a long time, given that the thing is several GB.…
