I have a MBP late 2010 running 10.6.  I will do a firmware upgrade that will allow it to have a recovery partition installed.


my question is what is the best way to install 10.8?


I will need to reformat the hard drive on the MBP so there will be no OS on it.  and I like a clean install anyway.   Shall I start it from a recovery USB stick I have from a newer MBP and go online to install?  Download the OS from Apple and burn it on a DVD and install from there?  Or clone the OS 10.6 disk before erasing and boot from that disk and install than?  or?


Any tips or ideas as to what would be the best way?
