Hi, I bought a SSD for my Early 2008 MBP and want to do a fresh installation of Mountain Lion on it (I don't like Mavericks). Sadly I don't have a USB Stick that is big enough to fit the 4 GB image ... I found this guide here: http://shayashi.net/tech/installing-os-x-from-external-hard-drive/ I wasn't aware that that is even possible. I'm guessing he has a NTFS HDD (because who hasn't) - so is it? Thanks edit: I'm not really interested in an answer anymore, because I've realized I can't create a new partition without formatting. I guess I have to go buy a new USB stick.
