Internet recovery does require your AppleID, and always has as I recall. The download is coming from the App Store, after all.

If you really don't know your AppleID, visit https://appleid.apple.com/#!&page=signin and click “Forgot Apple ID or password?” then click “Forgot Apple ID?” Enter your first name, last name, and email address, then click Continue.

If that fails for you, you'll need to create a new AppleID.

Using internet recovery to install the factory os x for my mac does not need apple id if im not wrong but when i tried to use that method and try to reinstall my os x its still asking for apple id i read some thread in google that using internet recovery by install os x does not nid to log in your apple id but why mine is still need i dont know
Your Mac is a bit of an odd duck is why it is asking for an AppleID.

You are correct that on newer Macs you can use Internet recovery to get back the factory OS version with no AppleID. But your Mac is on this list, and what happened is it came with Snow Leopard then there was a Lion update that could be obtained with an AppleID, and that update changed the system firmware to allow Internet recovery. So you have a Mac that Internet recovery can only get Lion with an AppleID that was used to purchase Lion because of the way this upgrade was handled by Apple.
