Here's the problem:
I want to do a clean install of Mountain Lion on my (custom) Intel 520 SSD inside my iMac. The first time this SSD was setup, it was done by a certified Apple Retailer.
This time, I wanted to use the "Intel SSD Toolbox" to do a "secure erase" of the drive to get it back to full condition. However, to do this, there can be no partition on the drive, and currently the EFI partition is still present.
I searched on AskDifferent and via Google, but it seems removing this partition makes Mountain Lion complain while installing.
So my question is this: (How) can I safely remove the EFI partition so I can use the Intel SSD Toolbox and then install Mountain Lion? I figure the drive initially never came with any EFI partition and the Apple Retailer installed Lion (not Mountain Lion though) just fine, so there has to be a way to tackle this.
I am currently writing, and working on this from Windows 7, my Lion partition is already gone so I can't work from there
