    I seem to be stuck in a loop, i followed 2 simple steps to recover my MBP and return it to factory settings, Ive erased the Macintosh HD and go the OSX Recovery, attempt to reinstall OSX, sign into Apple etc, it seems to download fine, but as soon as it starts installing onto the now erased HD it crashes and returns to the Pick from list option? Anyone have any ideas?

    Try internet recovery, hold Command-Option-R.

    If it's within statutory warrantee limit, take it back to Apple. Crashing while using the Recovery Partition is likely to indicate a hardware fault.
