    When zeroing out my HD, do I select the one that says "Toshiba MKxxxxxxx" or the one that says "Macintosh HD"? What is the difference? Thanks

    If you want to erase the entire drive, choose the Toshiba ...

    Macintosh HD is just the partition.

    Although, if you only have the one partition, it doesn't make that much of a difference.

    Ya, I only have the one partition, but I want to put my Mac back to as factory as I can get it. Does that make a difference on which one I choose?

    Not really, but just choose the Toshiba ...
