My friends father bought a 13 Mbp a few months ago. He has not used it since then and has forgotten his OS X password. There is a hidden Recovery drive on the machine but when I try to restart the machine and reload OS X it does not use the recovery partition, it starts downloading the OS instead. Is this normal? I ask because the internet is very slow here and it is requiring about 30 hours to download the recovery installation. Obviously I would like the maching to use the recovery partition but I'm not clear on how this normally works. Is there any way I can force it to recover from the partition or is the download required? Thanks very much.
