    How to get Mavericks back after reformatting my hard drive.
    I need to reformat my hard drive several times before selling my 2011 Mac Mini. I'm using a ssd as my boot drive. But after reformatting it, how do I get my operating system (Mavericks) back?

    Do you have a spare hard drive that can be attached internally or via Usb. Try using carboncopy if still available. Then simply direct the software to the spare drive.

    Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!
