    Does anyone know of a way to elect not to register Jaguar when installing it?? In previous versions you could avoid registration, but Jaguar seems to force you into registering. Any ideas??

    Re: Avoiding Registration in Jaguar

    Very easy ;)

    Just unplug the network cable while installing Jaguar. Because when it is connected to a network with DHCP and internet it will automatically connect.

    When you fill in your personal info and it tries to connect, to send it to Apple, it will fail and ask you to register later. Then the install will go on.

    After the installation you can delete the registration app from the login items.

    <EDIT>
    B.T.W same goes for OS 10.1 ... :)

    When I upgraded, it didn't even ask (or try) to register.
