    Hey! I just got the new Retina macbook (Also my first mac)

    Unfortunately,A friend got to use it before me and he put some files in it. I would like to restore the whole OS just so I can go through the whole initial set up again. I tried re installing the OS but unfortunately the net speed here is slow and I cant obviously wait 9 hours.

    Any way I can just restore the OS offline?

    Unfortunately, this answer is a no. You have to re-download it.
    Just curious, how come your friend got to use it before you haha, that's so nice of you :D

    Any way I can run the initial setup again? thats all I need really.
    Or can I just set it to re-install and put it on power sleep?

    This friend in question was the one who bought it on my behalf so fair game :p

    How's that a fair game? Because he bought it for you, doesn't mean he can just put files on it?

    why is it obvious you can't wait 9 hours? just set up before going to school / work / friends / family

    it is possible to live without a computer for 9 hours you know :D
