comment Battery on white MacBook shuts off abruptly after 30% charge is left
The calibration process I'm talking about involves a complete charge, discharge, and re-charge. I don't see how that would be doable in less than half a day. Are we talking about the same process?

comment repaired disk/permissions, now imac won't boot into login
Most advice I read concerning fsck suggests that it's a poor idea to run it on a mounted file system because the FS can change underneath it, and that it won't fix any errors in that case. Thus, my recommendation for running it in single-user mode. See hintsforums.macworld.com/archive/index.php/t-2666.html , for example; or Google 'fsck multi-user' for others.

comment Do Macs store a serial number on the disk?
I understood this option wasn't available to you; that's why I didn't offer this as an answer. But some future reader of this question might have different circumstances.

comment Do Macs store a serial number on the disk?
For future reference, the hardware serial number is available from the system profiler, About This Mac, on the Hardware Overview page. (I know that doesn't help much without the computer in hand.) If you've ever made an AppleCare support request, you were probably asked for it - perhaps Apple Support have a record of it.
