Is there a way to reset MacOS 10.13?

I need to specify that I can't use the Mac recovery mode, because the original version it shipped with was 10.7 and it keeps giving me an error saying to try again later after I put in my Apple ID.

Shouldn't need an AppleID, Apple gives you a direct link to the needed downloads: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT211683. If you need to go back to 10.13, you'd need to use recovery mode to reinstall 10.7, then upgrade to 10.10/11/12 and then upgrade from there to 10.13 (10.13 will only update back to Mountain Lion). I do the same thing with my mid-2012 MBP when I need to restore it, except I start from 10.8 instead (and go up to 10.15).

Thank you! I will try this!
