I need to fully restore my MacBook to its original settings - completely blank. I accidentally deleted all the application on there so at the moment it is pretty much useless. The disk drive is broken so I can't really use that? It was originally Tiger, I have the Tiger disk, but I upgraded to Leopard, which I also still have to hand.
Is it possible to blank it without using the disk drive? Or any suggestions how I could go about it?
