    Hi, i'm having trouble reseting my MacBook Pro. I hold Cmd and R while the restart, and go to Disk Utility and erase "Macintosh HD" and go back and go to the "Reinstall OS X" tab. Everything goes fine and it downloads and install and I have to re setup my Mac like I did day one, but one I got on the desktop right away "FeedBack Asstiant". I had this before i reset my Mac, but made sure I exited the PB program via the Mac App Store settings page.

    PS. right before i reset, i just update to the public release of OS X 10.11.1, and when I was going through the process of the factory settings reinstall it said I was updating to the OS X 10.11 GM Candidate?


    When I was in Disk Utility theres was another section below the "Macintosh HD" which said something about a Disk Image. I have nothing plugged in my rMBP

    Best you create a USB Installer ->

    Boot your Macbook Pro (hold ctrl) with it. With the disk utility you can than erase or formate (I always formate) the HDD. Once you done, start to install OS X from your USB Stick.
