This topic may already exist but I am not sure where. Anyway I just received a used Mac book pro and the previous user info is still on it. I am new to Mac so I went online to find a way to reset it to factory setting and start anew. I found some sites that listed how to go about it. Most of them suggested pressing the "command and R" buttons after the chime or pressing the "options" key. The first option does not work the mac ignores this. The second option takes me to a pic of the HD but I cannot choose for it to do anything else. If I press the arrow under the pic it boots normally.
How do I get to the boot setup so that I can choose an HD recovery? It is a Macbook Pro A1226 (silver keyboard). I am not even sure what version OS I am running. Please lead me properly.
