    How do I reset the rMBP back to factory settings to how it was when I first opened it?

    Here's a great explanation on how to do it, if you want to restore it to the OS that it shipped with, or the latest one. Read the "Best Answer"

    I did what it said and when I turn it on all I see a blinking folder with a question mark on it. When I boot up holding down command+R some Internet Recovery thing pops up but it doesn't show my Wi-Fi network. Help! :(

    Did you follow those instructions step by step? They were pretty clear.
