Depending on the build model year and how the operating system

was installed, it may/or not be able to use online recovery methods.

And vintage of macOS &/or Mac OS X makes for different choices.

The use of macOS Recovery from support article pages, can be helpful once

you determine what you need to do there ~ just so as to get only that done.


Without knowing the version and vintage of operating system, some of these

may be better choices than others. ~ An older machine that has seen upgrade

via downloaded system - Lion 10.7.5 or Later - may use macOS recovery.
