    Hi all,
    Need some help. I'm wanting to sell my 2007 macbook. The issue is that when I erased the hard drive and tried to load Lion OS using a usb drive, it loads the OS Lion but when it comes back, it still has my profile on it. I have tried a couple of times and it keeps happening. The SSD hard drive has two drives, one 20gigs (two partitions in 10gigs apiece) and another hard drive with 100 gigs on it.

    I just don't know what to do.

    Please help!!

    Did you follow the Lion-specific instructions here?

    Try the steps listed in this support document, and see if that works for you. You might not have been reformatting the drive as thoroughly as you thought. Hope this helps!
