Restore From Time Machine Backup
Reinstall Mac OS X
Set-up and install a new copy of Lion
When I click on Disk Utility, I see
hdd icon 500.11 GB
orange disk icon, Mac OS X Base System
So what am I doing, and will this get me where I want to go, download High Sierra.
Another question, could I just purchase a usb drive (from eBay with High Sierra) and reinstall via USB thumbdrive or DVD.
