To set up your MacBook Air:
- In the Setup Assistant, follow the onscreen instructions until you get to the "Do You Already Own a Mac?" screen.
- Do a basic setup or a setup with migration:
- To do a basic setup, select "Do not transfer my information now" and click Continue. Follow the remaining prompts to select your wireless network, set up an account, and exit Setup Assistant.
- To do a setup with migration, first set up another Mac that has an optical disc drive to partner with. Then follow the instructions in this article.
Note: If you've already started Setup Assistant on your MacBook Air, you can leave it mid-process without quitting, move to the other computer to install the DVD or CD Sharing Setup software, then return to your MacBook Air to complete the setup.
