10.3: Serial number in the 'About This Mac' box now works
Authored by: gvitale on Nov 17, '03 12:06:08PM

There is some magic around this: talking about my late 2001 iBook, the serial # used to appear in the About this Mac window until I sent it for a display repair (it was around 10.1.5). When it came back, it had the logic board replaced, a new display and the HD was re-formated with MacOS9. At this point I clean installed Jaguar but the serial # would NOT appear anymore, so I thought that the new logic board was the culprit. This until I update to 10.2.8 (the first release if I remember well), when I realized the the serial # was back!!!
Now I'm running Panther and the serial # is still there.
