I'm running 10.6.8 and want to upgrade to Lion (I already purchased Lion). Before I install it I would like to clean the Mac back to its factory settings then install Lion. I have Windows 7 running via Boot Camp. I do not want to erase Windows 7.


Will restoring the Mac erase Windows from the partition drive?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
