I have Macbook Air 2013-mid which has only Ubuntu 16.04 and reFind bootloader. Now, however, I Would like get OSX back to the whole disk. I find only updates of specific OS Xs here but not whole ISO file, which you can boot for the install. I have had licences of El Capitan on my Apple store but cannot login now to any Apple store.

I started the Internet recovery mode. It asks me wifi password. I gave it but it stays now in the mode where the Earth and you can still change the network settings. I have also Ethernet connection with USB connector to the device but it does not want to use it. Eventually, it gives the warning sign and the text

apple.com/support

Hardware: Macbook Air 2013-mid
OS: Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit only at the moment

    I think Internet Recovery is the way to go; Cmd/opt/R at boot. That will install the OS that the machine was shipped with, then you can update. – Tetsujin Aug 28 '16 at 8:52

    wifi needs to be WPA/WPA2, not WEP & no captive portals. If you still can't connect, then you need a friend with a Mac who can get the El Cap installer & make a USB boot, or take it to your nearest Apple Store; they'll set it up for you. – Tetsujin Aug 28 '16 at 9:35
  • @Tetsujin Please, see the body. I will next make El Cap installation with USB boot with another mac. Is there any specific which I need to consider? – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Aug 28 '16 at 9:39
