I used this same flash drive to do a clean install on a 2012 MacBook Pro two weeks ago.

Fine. I have 10.8 available also. Is this why the disk is unrecognized?

comment Repair Permissions messed up network preferences
I did a clean install, and everything now works. An interesting thing, though. I noticed that MacPorts was being seen by the system as a user. This may explain some other problems that I was having but that were not critical.

Good to know I'll try it out in a few days, and give you a +1 and a check if it works. I'm on Lion 10.7.5

I have been considering upgrading to 10.8. What are the odds that a clean install would fix the problem?
