Unfortunately there does not seem to be a risk-free way to do so (the  
solution Eric has mentioned seems to be as much work as backing up  
the partition and setting up the whole machine from scratch ...).

But can't you use an external FW drive with a freshly installed OS X?  
AFAICR, Intel Macs are still able to book from FW drives. Or don't  
the developer kits have FW ports?
(If you don't have a FW drive at hand, maybe we can collect some  
donations from the list and provide you with one? Just an idea ...)
