Chapter 2. Installing Mac OS X > The Mac OS X Setup Assistant

The Mac OS X Setup Assistant

The first time Mac OS X boots, it will run an installer assistant that helps set up the basic features of your new operating system. This installation process is actually much more streamlined than Mac OS 8 or 9, and should take only a few minutes. During the procedure, your network settings will be configured and registration details will be sent back to Apple. If you do not have the necessary information present, you should collect it before proceeding.

Note

When Mac OS X boots for the first time, it will prepare several system files. This takes two or three minutes longer than normal. Don't worry, this happens only once!
