I recently bought a 2012 mini on ebay...had some trouble with it and it's going back for a return. I'm trying to wipe the drive and reformat so that none of my info is on it. Well...both methods I tried, one with a wipe and one just reinstall are asking me for my Apple ID. I put it in the first time when I just did the reinstall and it loaded all my old info...defeating the purpose! The second time I did the wipe and then reinstall and it's asking for my ID again.... How does one get a fresh generic install on there? I want to give it back just like it was given to me...with a generic ID of "macuser" and an easy password to pass along to the next person. It won't let me reinstall without entering an ID. What do people do when they haven't created one yet? I don't get it... Do I just make one up and that's how it gets created in the first place? If so it's not clear at all from the prompts. Thanks in advance!
