    I have a problem with my MacBook Pro, which runs Mac OS X Lion.

    I have reseted it back to the Setup Assistant.

    After I executed the following commands, I need to select the region when I boot; this works fine, but when I choose the keyboard, the whole Mac gets stuck, and I see the loading icon on the screen. Even if I wait one hour, nothing happens.

    $ mount -uw /
    $ rm -R /Library/Preferences/
    $ rm -R /Users/username/
    $ rm /var/db/dslocal/nodes/Default/users/username.plist
    $ rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
    How can I solve this? Actually, I have no Mac OS X disc to reinstall it.

    can I create a user via the command line, or skip the setup assistant?
