Answer to: alternative ways of finding serial number or MAC address on hardware?Here is how the case worked out in the end (the "answer" how the case actually took place in real life): My reseller / Apple service partner solved the problem this way: Apple was able to tell the s/n of the machine from the s/n of the logic board. That's all. Although they also mentioned that this took quite some time. Today I received the fixed MacBook. Thank you all for your contributions. To respond to the other suggestions: The error behaviour was like this: 1) push power button 2) hear the sound from the machine being turned on: fan runs, hard disk (only spinning, not reading) 3) dvd drive makes the typical 'eject' sound 4) screen stays dark. no target mode, no shortcuts, no safe boot, nothing. 5) after about 20 seconds of nothing, repeat from 3) ... until you hold the power button to force power off. I cannot accept any tips or try out anything, as the machine is repaired and fully functional again. Thanks again to all! - Oliver
