Unborking the Public Laptop

From Hack Manhattan Wiki

People came around to Hack Manhattan open house and borked the public laptop. This is expected, it is public and open for borking. Let us as members unbork it back to normal.

  1. Turn on the laptop
  2. You will see two options. Restart or advanced options. Click Advanced options, don’t press restart.
  3. Then press system restore (@citybadger/@luna edit for accuracy) (There is also apparently a usb stick somewhere.)
  4. Click on HM , you will be asked for a password
  6. You will then be taken to a loading screen where it does system restore
  7. Allow the system to restore (this will take 5-10 minutes)
  8. Voila. You have entered the public laptop again. Welcome.
