Default Restore to 'factory settings' for sale - 05-08-2010, 08:16 PM


I'm selling my mini 10v osx/win7 dual boot and want to restore it to a fresh osx install, without going through the entire install routine.

If I just delete my user account, setup a new one and securely erase any blank space on the hdd, I should be ok right?

If you want to sell it here, just wipe the disk as we don't allow sale of Minis with OS X preloaded. In any case I don't recommend selling with the OS you've been using - do a fresh install of whatever you put on it. You don't know what is stored where.
