Step 1: Boot Into Recovery Mode

Choose your account on the left sidebar and choose Sign Out. This will work on any Mac running OS X Shut down your Mac. Continue holding these keys until you see the Apple logo. This runs the recovery environment from the internet instead of a partition on your hard drive.

Then wait a bit while your computer downloads the recovery environment.

Before You Start: Back Up!

When using internet Recovery mode, the system may reinstall a different version of macOS than you were using. Mine installed Mavericks, even though I was running Lion to start with. To do this, select Disk Utility from the menu. Next, select your internal hard drive usually labeled Macintosh HD from the left sidebar. Switch to the Erase tab on the right side. The default name of Macintosh HD is fine, unless you prefer something else. Click Erase and confirm the operation. You may see a prompt to enter your Apple ID as part of this process.

Accept the license agreement, then click your hard drive to select it for installation. Click Install to start the process. Once you see the Welcome screen, your Mac is back to factory defaults. Next, confirm your keyboard layout and hit Continue again.
