    I sold my old MBP to a friend and he installed his own hard disk in it.
    Now his computer (with his name) appears on "Find My iPhone" and I don't know how to delete it.
    Any idea how to fix this problem?

    Can you have him check Preferences-iCloud and see if this MBP is logged in as you?

    Yes as kohlson said, you shouldn't be signed in. But if it's a fresh install you won't be. The device will still be associated to your ID however (it's supposed to be persistent .

    Since you didn't disable Find My Mac before you sold it, you can swipe the device in the list at the bottm and "remove" it in your Find My iPhone app.

    The other nice thing you can do is make sure the laptop isn't associated to your AppleID at https://supportprofile.apple.com/ and let your friend register it under theirs once you do.
