  1. Image the loaner with the standard image, using the standard methods (if you need help with this, see Distributing_Macintosh_Faculty_and_Staff_Loaners)
  2. When the Update-User-Template window appears, install this package:
    smb://middfiles.middlebury.edu/middfiles => ORGS => ITS => Planning-Evaluation => Circ => Mac => Loaners => Loaner Reset and Delete Installer.mpkg
  3. After installation, open Macintosh HD => Applications => Utilities => MIDD => Loaner Reset and Delete.app
  4. Reboot, login as user loaner to test. Shutdown if successful. That's it!
