I´ve got a MacBook Pro from Late 2008 Version 10.8.5.


Two weeks ago I updated it and the wi-fi stopped working. I went to the apple store and they had to wipe it out as they didn´t know what happenned.


I asked them if I was going to have the same problem if update it. Now I have updated it and no wi-fi again. I´d like to know how I can wipe it out on my own as there is no apple store in my town.


I haven´t got any restore CD





MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

    Hello Javi,


    Bootup holding CMD+r, or the Option/alt key to boot from the Restore partition & use Disk Utility from there to Repair the Disk, then Repair Permissions.


    If that doesn't help Reinstall the OS from there.


    But it sounds like some other problem.

    Thanks for your message.


    Could you please let me know how to do it by steps?


    Do I have to do the partition before the boot up? Ho can I do the partition?


    I´ve used time machine and got everything in a hard drive.


    I think it might be a problem with the latest update. It has always been working fine but there must be a problem between my mac and this update.


    Many thanks
