Introduction




OS X Base System is a recovery partition that contains a minimal version of macOS with essential components only. It allows you to access macOS Recovery, which is a built-in recovery system on your Mac that can help you diagnose problems, repair your disk, restore from a Time Machine backup, or reinstall macOS.


To download OS X Base System, you need to enter macOS Recovery Mode, which can be done by pressing certain key combinations during startup. Depending on the key combination you choose, you will be able to download different versions of macOS that are compatible with your Mac. Once you have downloaded OS X Base System, you can use it to erase your startup disk and reinstall macOS.


In this article, we will guide you through the following steps:



  • How to enter macOS Recovery Mode



  • How to check and erase your startup disk with Disk Utility



  • How to reinstall macOS from macOS Recovery



  • How to avoid restoring your Mac in the future



How to Enter macOS Recovery Mode




macOS Recovery Mode is a special mode that allows you to access various tools and options that can help you fix problems with your Mac. To enter macOS Recovery Mode, you need to press certain key combinations while your Mac is starting up. The key combination you choose will determine which version of macOS will be downloaded as OS X Base System.


The key combinations are different depending on whether you have a Mac with Apple silicon or an Intel-based Mac. Here are the instructions for both types of Macs:


If you have a Mac with Apple silicon





  • Shut down your Mac by choosing Apple menu > Shut Down.



  • Press and hold the power button until you see the startup options window.



  • Click Options, then click Continue.



  • If you are asked to select a user you know the password for, select the user, click Next, then enter their administrator password.



If you have an Intel-based Mac





  • Shut down your Mac by choosing Apple menu > Shut Down.



  • Press the power button on your Mac, then immediately press and hold one of the following key combinations:



  • Command-R: To install the latest version of macOS that was installed on your Mac without upgrading.



  • Option-Command-R: To upgrade to the latest version of macOS that is compatible with your Mac.Shift-Option-Command-R: To reinstall the version of macOS that came with your Mac, or the closest version still available.



  • Release the keys when you see the Apple logo or a spinning globe.



  • If you are asked to enter a password, enter the password of an administrator account on your Mac.



After you enter macOS Recovery Mode, you will see a window with four options: Restore From Time Machine Backup, Reinstall macOS, Safari, and Disk Utility. You can use these options to perform different tasks, such as restoring your Mac from a backup, browsing the web, or repairing your disk. In this article, we will focus on how to use Disk Utility and Reinstall macOS.

Disk Utility is a tool that allows you to manage your disks and volumes on your Mac. You can use it to check the health and status of your disks, repair any errors or issues, erase or format your disks, and partition or resize your volumes. Before you reinstall macOS on your Mac, it is recommended that you check and erase your startup disk with Disk Utility. This will ensure that your disk is free of any problems that might interfere with the installation process, and that you have a clean slate to start fresh.
