I want to restore my mac mini (mid 2011) to its factory settings. I've tried following the guidelines using the cmd+r approach. Didn't work. Then I tried the cmd+alt+r way, which didn't work either. I cannot get the Internet Recovery to work either. I'm using a bluetooth keyboard, which I think could be part of the problem (?). Another thing: when I try to erase my disk (via Applications-Utilities-Disk Utilities) I can't do so (my display settings have somehow become messed up; that's the reason in the first place to restore my mac mini. I'm further connected to a wireless network.


I'd greatly appreciate any kind of help.

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
