10.5: Create an updated OS X install on a to-be-sold Mac
Authored by: Nutnode on Sep 10, '09 03:54:42PM

I decided to push ahead & try this hint for a Tiger install and, for the benefit of any body else thinking of attempting same, I can confirm following the instructions given I successfully managed to create a fully updated Tiger system alongside fully updated (service releases) copies of the iLife apps that would of originally shipped on the Mac.

Booting the iMac G5 ALS now runs the Welcome movie & setup routine as if direct from Apple when new.

THERE WAS ONLY ONE DIFFERENCE IN THE PROCESS - When disabling root access in the GUI, this is done in the Security menu of "NetInfo Manager" app (also located in Utilities) rather than "Directory Utility" as stated in the hint for Leopard.

Thank you Las Vegas for the excellent hint.
