I've bought a new Mac laptop and I want to sell my Mac mini. However, I need to erase my hard drive.
I only have the Snow Leopard install disk: I purchased Lion from the Mac App Store.
Is there any way I can install Lion? I don't want to put my Apple ID into the new install. I'd rather leave it ready for my buyer.
When I go into Disk Utility, I don't see a restore partition, possibly because the Mac mini has an optical drive. Not sure if I can set up a restore partition. If I could, would I have to enter my Apple ID?
