MacBook Pro :: Factory Reset - Copy All Settings?

Oct 10, 2010

Im setting out to my hometown for 5 days and all of my stuff are on my iMac. I dont know, how to copy all settings ,etc from iMac straight to the Macbook Pro. As far as I think, the only way is first to reset the Macbook Pro. Take a Time Machine backup from the iMac. And then restore the copy to the Macbook Pro. Is that the only way left for me? And how do we factory reset the macbook pro, so everything gets deleted and becomes new and ready for a new Tim Machine restore.

Mar 18, 2012

I would like to wipe my MacBook Core 2 Duo, currently running 10.5.8 I just recieved the Snow Leopard 10.6 disk, before I upgrade, I want to wipe this laptop completely as if it were new.  Will this be an option during the install of 10.6 or do I have to go about it another way?  Here is the catch, I recently moved, and misplaced the CD's the MacBook originally came with.  So all I have is the computer and the Snow Leopard 10.6 cd.

MacBook Air :: Can Reset Laptop To The Original Factory Settings

Jun 26, 2012

Is there any way you can reset your MacBook Air to the original settings you first recieved it in? I've noticed I have way to much junk to go through and try to delete it all and when I try to delete something it does the poof thing it's supposed to, but later I notice it has not been deleted. I've tried restarting my computer, and completely turning it off for 24 hours then seeing it its gone, but it never deletes.

Hardware :: Airport Express - How To Reset To Factory Settings

Jul 24, 2009

I recently moved to a new place. At my old apartment I had my express plugged in, never constantly unplugged it or anything and it worked fine.

I move into my new place and now my express wont work. I did a factory reset, holding the reset while plugging it in, reconfigured it to extend my network as I use it to connect to xbox live.

Everything will work for about 2-3 minutes and have internet until the light goes solid yellow. It wont show up in the airport utility or anything. I look at it and it is shutoff while plugged in. No blinking light, no solid light just nothing.

I cant find any information on any other resets and I assumed factory was way to go after it wasnt working the first time.

I have NO idea what to do now. I assume its dead completely unless there is something im doing wrong.

I have had it for a little over a year. Not exactly sure when i bought it. I think I am within a month of the warranty expiring. This sucks. I dont have my proof of purchase or anything. But I am positive I bought it around this time.t does the normal start-up by blinking green then solid yellow while starting then it resets, "starts up" one more time then shuts off completely.
