How to reset Lion back to the Setup Assistant
Authored by: David Allen on Dec 06, '12 11:38:50AM

You would only need to start with Snow Leopard if the Mac has only had Leopard or Snow Leopard installed on it. Or if it is an older Mac with a new HDD. If the Mac has already had either Lion or Mt Lion and does not have a new HDD or it shipped with Lion or Mt Lion, then there is no need to install Snow Leopard, you would use OS X Recovery;

Or if it is one of the following models that did not ship with Lion or Mt Lion, the EFI firmware can be updated to use OS X Recovery;

Yes, it requires an internet connection and yes, you will need to download the installation at 4 to 5 GB.
