    You shouldn't have to do that. You can do a clean install by booting into the recovery partition on the Mac by booting while holding down the R key. Is your Mac backed up?

    Internet Recovery will offer you the OS X version that your Mac came with originally.
    And, after installing that, you can then update to the version that you want, through the App Store
    Might not be the one-step install from scratch that you were hoping for, but it will work.
