About a year ago, I sold my old MacBook Pro. Last week I got a call from the buyer who said that it had been stolen and he didn't have the serial number — and did I have it?
I haven't been able to find it anywhere. It's not registered under my Apple ID (not sure it ever was). It was originally purchased from Amazon, and they don't put serial numbers on their receipts. I'm still looking for the original box.
OTOH, I do still have a disk image that I made of the drive immediately before I reformatted it, prior to the sale.
Is the serial number stored anywhere on that disk image?
What I've tried:
- Searching my current MBP for my current serial number
I figured that if I could find a file with the current serial number, the old disk image might have that same file with the old number.
- Searching for old system profiler reports
Sadly, I couldn't find one.
Anyone have any other ideas?
