    It shouldn't be asking you for your AppleID. Should just search for your computer identifier on Apple's system and run the install for you.

    Don't you register a new macbook air with your apple id after you buy it? I certainly did.

    That should be the apple id the internet recovery is looking for.

    And before the upgrade you were able to do it? Just to make sure it's not a user error.
