10.5: Create an updated OS X install on a to-be-sold Mac
Authored by: las_vegas on Aug 07, '09 05:58:20PM

In this case, I was setting up the computer to send it to my sister. Having all the updates pre-installed would simplify her initial setup. By using this technique, I was able to install all of her needed software without creating a user account on the system.

Too often, I've fixed a user's pre-owned Mac with the account name "Mac-User" and password "password". Since that's the way they received it, they had no idea they should have it setup differently.
