1. If the MacBook Pro is running OS 10.7 or newer, boot while holding down the command-R key combination to boot from the restore partition.

2. Open Disk Utility and reformat the boot drive. Choose the option under Security Options to overwrite with zeros.

3. After the drive is erased, re-install the operating system.

If the Mac Book is running OS 10.6 or older, you need the original system CD that came with the computer. Insert the DVD and boot while holding down the C key then follow steps 2 and 3 above.
