    When you first turn on your Mac, a cool video plays. Is there any way to get it to play again, or even get the file from the hard-disk???

    :confused::confused:

    Thanks

    It's on the HD somewhere, I think you have to show package contents on something ... I'll see if I can find it.

    It is here:

    /System/CoreServices/Setup Assisiant/Contents/Resources/TransitionSection.bundle/Contents/Resources/intro.mov

    You have to Show Package Contents on Setup Assistant.app and Transition Section.bundle

    The video and sound are in two separate files, but if you copy them out, you could combine them together in QT or iMovie.

    Whoops, you're right. I forgot the first Library folder, but it is the only thing in my system folder.


    And no you don't need admin privileges to read/copy the files.

    I think it is on the Mac version of a BIOS, and not accessible or changeable through the OS (sadly, a customizable one would be great!).

    Do you want the sound itself? Grab a copy of MacTracker which allows you to play all the startup chimes as well as other event sounds.
