I clean-installed Mountain Lion 10.8.0. Now I am at 10.8.2 and I want to do a clean install again. If I boot to the recovery partition and do a restore, will I have 10.8.0 or 10.8.2? Does the recovery partition get updated when OS X gets updated?
The Recovery Partition does not get updated. Once the partition is created, OS X Recovery downloads the latest of your OS X version from Apple.
