Resetting OS X Lion back to factory settings

August 16, 2011

There seems to be a lot of confusion about how do this. Actually it’s pretty easy:

  1. Reboot your machine and hold down CMD+R.
  2. Choose the option relating to Disk Utility and erase the Macintosh HD.
  3. Close Disk Utility and from the list of options, reinstall Lion.

(Note, you’ll need to hook up your machine to a wifi Hotspot so that it can download the entire Lion image from the internet…zzzzzzz)
