    I wanted to do a clean install, but I noted that ML is 4GB+ (just a little more).
    But I don't have a USB that's big enough.
    So I wondered, if I create a partition on my HDD of 16GB (or so),
    will I be able to do a clean install?

    Any ideas?

    8GB USB flash drives are $6 to $8 retail.

    I know...
    I just don't have any at the moment.

    I'm gonna buy some in the week-end,
    but I'm hoping to have my redeem code today.
