    You know that you can just upgrade your distrubution to 12.10 (and then upgrade again so you can get 13.04) right?

    But if you really wish to perform a clean install A simple workaround would be to use the text-installer, I'm not sure if you get that option with 13.04 or not, but if you don't just download the server-edition instead, and then use apt-get to install ubuntu-desktop.

    Hope this helps you out a bit.
