Clean install of Mavericks from Recovery Partition

1 post in this topic

Can you do a clean install of Mavericks from the Recovery Partition (cmd+R on boot)? Or do I need to put in the DVD that came with the 2010 MacBook Pro, boot to that, reformat drive, and install/upgrade from there?
Yes, I know you can make a USB boot drive (which I don't have). Can I boot to the recovery partition, reformat the drive, and then install Mavericks from there? Or will there be other issues? I do not want to restore from a Time Machine drive (which is also on the fritz), I want a clean install. Thanks.
