Hey all. Quick question...

Is there a way to view my Mac Pro specs without actually logging in? I guess to rephrase that, from startup? I'm running Snow Leopard.

Reason being is I'm selling it and have it restored to set-up a fresh install for the person who purchases it. I don't want to have to install the OS and create a Username just to view the specs.

I do already know the specs but I'd like to be able to take a picture of the spec sheet so I can upload it to my for sale ad. Any ideas?

Thanks!

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Take it you are passing on the Snow Leopard DVD? If so take the pics when running your OS, and after sale boot from the SL DVD and erase the hard drive and format Mac OS Extended (Journaled) The new owner will be ablke to set up as he/she wishes and it is a great learning experience. Suggest theyb use the OS X.6.8Combo Updater after it is up and running.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

I appreciate the welcome and the quick reply! Thanks

The problem I have is I don't have the SL DVD. I purchased a few of these computers for quite cheap from a local business but they did not include the recovery disc.

Apple Online still sells Snow Leopard for $20 including postage. A great selling aid having and advertising that disc included in the sale.

I'm sure this is a stupid question, but, if I buy the disc from Apple can I burn it and make a few copies? I have 5 more of these Mac Pro's that I am selling and no installation discs.

That would be a BIG FAT NO!
