I think that actually installs the Mac OS it came with in the factory via internet recovery which a lot are Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

Depending on the model version it might not have the recovery partition or even the ability to recover from the internet

And yes it uses macOS not iOS

@benjamen50

Adding the Option key to the mix should install most current available version to the specific model.

by

@jasonmac - Yes that might be possible! But it could be an older2009 unibody which does not support internet recovery. Until we know which exact version we're just throwing darts at the wall ;-}

@danj True story! :)

Emma - You’ll want to restart your system and press Command (⌘) and R keys which will launch into internet recovery.

Reference: Mac startup key combinations
