Re: Selling my mini -- restore?
You will want to do an OEM install. Upon booting the live cd or usb stick that you will be reinstalling from, highlight the 'Install Ubuntu' option and press F4. In the list that pops up, choose 'OEM Install'. By doing this, ubuntu will be installed with a user called 'oem' and a password you specify. Once finished, reboot the computer and log in as 'oem'. When you get to the desktop, open a terminal and type
and when that finishes, shut the computer down. When the purchaser reboots it, it will ask to set up an account.
