    what is the difference between clean install and archive install because i am selling an older macbook to buy a newer one and want to erase all my stuff for the new owner.

    Clean install wipes the entire Hard Drive and re-installs the Operating system, while Archive and Install, re-installs the operating system but keeps all your files and settings.
