A while back I wrote about reinstalling OS X: http://blog.aclark.net/2010/10/15/i-reinstalled-recently. This is another one of those posts.
I like to reinstall OS X, a lot. So much so, you’d think I’d find some way to automate the process. There must be something soothing about it, though, because I keep doing it.
I’m writing this post now because since my last post, I’ve begun storing a snippets on gist.github.com to help automate the process. This way, I get “the best of both worlds”:
Specifically, with El Capitan I’ve settled on these 4 snippets:
Next, I perform various additional steps manually either because I’ve not figured out how to automate them or the automation prospects are not attractive:
Still, I’d trade all these steps for full automation if I could find an approach that’s not more tedious than cut & pasting the above.
Lastly, I hope this helps someone. Please add a comment below if you have a better approach.
