I have a faulty MBP 17' Late 2009. I can sell it for spares & repairs on ebay for quite a lot as I've found but it has a lot of sensitive data on it and I'd like to return it to a base system.
The problem is that there's a problem with the heatsync and it will switch off without warning if it gets too hot.
What would be the safest method of doing clean install. I have no means of connecting the internal drive to another machine.
Thanks very much.
