If the products are out of warranty there really isn't a need to change the registration.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MacBook Pro C2D 2.33 Ghz; MacBook Pro 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4), Intel iMac C2D 17 "; MacBook 2.0 Ghz; 30 GB iPod Video (Black); iPod Nano 2 GB
Currently Being ModeratedAug 17, 2008 12:13 PM (in response to Kappy)Thanks, Kappy - I understand and agree with the "no need", but with the HD wiped and a new system install, the first startup leads to the setup process which requires a new user to fill the registration screens. If the equipment serial number or license ID is somehow a component of that, then the new user's info would conflict with my old registration info. Would that then cause a refusal in the setup and/or a hassle for the new registrant? I don't know. Just trying to make a great Mac experience in case the new user is not savvy.
Anyway, I will enclose a printout of your suggestion for a call to AppleCare. I will also include a printout describing the process for resetting the first startup to blank setup and registration screens.
Thanks for any further info.

The information is just so Apple can send you promotional information.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MacBook Pro C2D 2.33 Ghz; MacBook Pro 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4), Intel iMac C2D 17 "; MacBook 2.0 Ghz; 30 GB iPod Video (Black); iPod Nano 2 GB
