    I purchased a Macbook Air and its registered under the person who had it before me. I changed the Accounts Name but when I go to Macintosh HD it still has their name and it won't allow me to change it. I would just reinstall leopard but for some reason it won't recognize from my Imac to the Air and hangs on "Waiting on Macbook Air to startup".


    Cliffs: Can I change the registered name without reinstalling leopard?

    - to change the short name, make a new one then delete the old one
    - to change the comptuer name, go to Sys Prefs > Sharing > Computer Name
    - if you want to change the product registration info go to Address Book and edit "Me"
