    Without reinstalling the OS, is it possible to some how tell the OS to show the welcome video on the next boot? I'm selling my MacBook and thought it would be a cool thing to let a potential buyer see - I know I was thoroughly impressed what I saw it the first time. :D

    Using the Terminal,
    rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
    It'd be best to go ahead and delete your user account when you do that, too, because it's going to prompt them to go through all of the setup themselves.

    For full instructions for that, go here:

    Note that you don't have to delete your account if you don't want to: the new account that will be created will not overwrite the first. It will prevent the new username from being the same, and will use the next available userId (so probably 502).
