It shouldn't matter. They just pop their SD card in and you wait till it's finished, then you're out of there.

Or could you repartition it yourself.

If you plan on flashing over the internal OS, there is no need to register. When I got my nook, I made a bootable sdcard with CWM, booted into it, mounted to my PC, transferred CM7 to the internal storage and flashed it. From there I eventually flashed CM9 and only saw the B&N OS when I tested albert's nandroid backup.

tl;dr no need to register if you plan on flashing a rom.
