    Restoring to the beginning?
    Is there any way to completely start over on your mac?

    Like go back to when you first turned it on?

    Specs:
    MacBook 2.0GHz White, 512MB RAM, 60GB HDD
    Stick the disks that came with it in, reboot holding the C key down, and when the installer appears, make sure you customise the install and select to erase the hard disk.

    Yes, it will be exactly as it was on first boot. It will even take you through the setup process.
