    Is there a way to purge the SSID/ password for a WiFi used during a clean install of Mavericks (10.9)?

    OS X Utilities seems to remember it no what matter what I do: delete the partition, clean install etc.

    Anyone knows?

    Start Keychain Access (I start it via spotlight), in the upper left section called "keychains", select "iCloud".

    Then in the lower left section, select "passwords". It should be there somewhere. You can make it easier to find if you click the "Kind" column, to sort it. It should be the kind "AirPort network password".

    Rightclick and select Delete.

    It is stored in system NVRAM/PRAM and not on the drive. Do a PRAM reset by following this and it will be wiped.
