Erase a Mac hard drive from the Terminal (when Disk Utility fails)

I wanted to do a clean install of Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion but after trying to delete the existing partition scheme, I was left with no partitions and a Disk Utility that didn't want to create some. Terminal to the rescue.

$ diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ Name /dev/disk0

Clean up your Mac computer before it's too late...

I don't need to tell you Mac computers are expensive, because we both know that!

So I also don't need to tell you either that it's in your interest to keep your Mac computer tidy and clean. A trip to the Apple repair store can be costly and stressful. Believe me, I've been there.

So what can you do?

You can detox your Mac using Detox My Mac! Detox My Mac is the #1 Mac cleaning application out there right now and every second is saving users hours of waiting and hassle with their Mac computer.
