How can I reset my Macbook Pro without reinstallation disk?

I bought a Macbook Pro opportunity, but the seller has not provided the recovery disc. How can I reset my system? Can I change the apple ID and continue working?


Hi Paul, you can't edit the Apple ID and keep working, because the Mac is always on with Apple ID from the previous owner, which means, you will not be able to download updates, or to do something that requires an Apple ID.

The original owner should have wiped the hard drive and reinstalled the OS X.
