Does anyone know to reset OS X so that it brings the initial registration doojobby up on launch?
Try this from the Terminal:
sudo mv /var/db/netinfo/local.nidb /var/db/netinfo/local.nidb.old
If you want to do it from Single User mode:
mv /var/db/netinfo/local.nidb /var/db/netinfo/local.nidb.old
Then restart. Either one will make it re-run the registration thing.
If you don't want to inactivate your old NetInfo DB, you could try this:
Just delete this:
If you delete this file, OS X will "think" you haven't done the setup, and will launch it again for you.
This could come in handy if you don't want to remove your account (like a system admin-account), but want to force a new user to create his/her own account, after a first boot.
