    Post System Restore / "Lobotomy" (Mac Mini)
    Hey everyone- helping out a friend with his Mac Mini. He wants to give it clean wipe and restore it to factory settings. Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks.

    Put in the factory disks that came with it, restart, hold 'c' before it boots and it will load the CD. Format and install.

    I'm not sure he has the factory discs.

    Is there a way to do it without them?
