If you go into disk utility you can erase the machine to it original form.

Hi there,

I have about fifteen 2009 iMac desktops that need to be restored to factory settings.  I have tried several fixes, but none are very easy.

I want to restore them so they have the OSx, but are cleared of any of our school information.  Our tech department does not support Macs (these were graciously donated from a local college and are now ready to move on) so I'm hoping someone on this list-serve can help me.

Can I download the OSx onto a thumbdrive and reload all the computers after they're wiped clean?  If so, how do I do that?

If anyone can walk me through this, I would greatly appreciate it!  I've spent so much time troubleshooting this... I just need a fix! I need to make space for newer iMacs we just received.

Thank you,
