    hi, what would be the best way to make a complete osx restore on a 2011 MBA 11" which came preinstalled with osx lion but has now yosemite 10.10.5 installed? The reason to reinstall osx is because i will be giving it to a relative.

    Can i erase my MBA hd and install 10.10.5 from scratch even though it came preinstalled with 10.7?

    I already have a usb stick with yosemite 10.10.5 loaded.

    Thank you!

    As I know, if you simply want a clean install, your USB instal disk is enough. You only need to wipe your hard disk and install a clean Yosemite 10.10.5 from that USB disk.
