    I want to make a USB ML install drive but my RMBP came already with ML, and since it was already installed I can not re-download it from App store, it wouldn't show it my previous purchases. I searched the forum but couldn't find a solution. Do you guys know how I can download it so I can put it on USB drive for quicker install? Thanks!

    Thank you for reply but it's not working. Like I mentioned before there is no option to Re-Download it since I've never purchased it in first place, it would not show in purchases history. It was already installed when I bought the computer, so I can not see it in my previous purchases.

    So no one knows how to download ML if your computer came with it preinstalled? What if I dont have internet when I need to clean install os x, am I really stuck with only that option?

    Sorry to give the wrong info.
    go to an apple store or call 800 apple number, see if they can help you.
    I understand if you go to apple store (brick and mortar store) along with your macbook pro and a sd card or usb drive 8gb one, you can get an ML osx physically in your hand.

    This process will get the installer DMG for you. Then use this free app to make a USB installer from the DMG.
