I tried burning the InstallESD.dmg file to a DVD so that I may do a clean install like I did with Lion.. But Disk Utility says the mountain lion image is too big to burn!! HTF am I going to do a clean install now?!!!!


The method is from the Egg Freckles website.. a tradition/common method of crerating a DVD for OS x.

No, 10.8 won't install on a single-layer DVD but can be burned to a dual-layer DVD. I have it both on a USB flash drive as well as a DVD (I'm just a stickler for back-ups).
