How to Restart a Mac in Recovery Mode
The purpose of this blog is to provide assistance for those who may be new to iPads, iPhones and Macintosh computers. I am president of the Sunflower Computer Club and one of two facilitators of the Sunflower Macintosh User's Group. When the Macintosh User's Group meets, we take questions and provide assistance to new users as well as Apple veterans. One that came up today was how to restart your Mac in Mountain Lion. Remember we used to have a boot disk, and pressed "c" and the start button. I learned that Lion and Mountain Lion has a disk-free boot option. The article in MacLife tells you how to do that. You can read more here, but the simple trick is hold down the option key while pressing the power on button.
