That is because Leopard will reformat the drive. Best option is to backup what is on your hard drive then follow the installation from there. It makes the OS more stable that way.

Is there an administrator password for imac 17 combo ap with os x leopard


Yes usually when you install the os you HAVE to give a root password.. To Reset it You need the os X disc.. Boot from the disc But don't install the OS again! Just click through windows far enough until you get the regular set of choices on the menu bar. One of those menus is the ultitiles and one of the choices on that menu is Reset root password..

I put a snow leopard disk into a old slot loading 600 mhz IMAC running 10.4.11 with the intention of upgrading it. Now I'm getting a gray screen with flashing question mark. I didn't do anything but insert...


Try restarting and holding down the command and C keys at startup. This should eject the disk. If that doesn't work, restart with the mouse button held down. This is also to eject the CD. If it doesn't boot correctly after the CD is out, restart holding command, option, O and F. This should bring up an open firmware command prompt screen. Type in "reset-all", without the quotation marks, and press enter. This will restore the PRAM and NVRAM to factory defaults and should allow normal booting. It may take a bit longer to boot the first time after you do this.

While trying to install OS10.5 and it will attempt to but it freezes, you the Apple booting circle it stops.


Probably the OS 10.5 version your're installing is not compatible or supported by the system motherboard of your computer model Apple Power Mac G5. per my research from Apple website herewith is their solution quote on what applicable OS to install for such model: "Power Mac G5 (Late 2005) and iMac G5 (iSight) models require Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later, you can t install Final Cut Pro 3.x or earlier versions on these computers. Final Cut Pro 3.x and earlier versions are not supported on any computer running Mac OS X 10.4". best regards

I recently bought two new hard drives to replace my existing drives. My Q: How do I install OS X onto the new drives, I want one as a boot up and the other as a backup. How do I go about configuring the...


First: Boot from the Mac OS X CD that came with your computer, or any other OS X CD (Put the CD in, then reboot while holding the "C" key), select your language

Second: You should re-format your drives. Go to the Utilities menu, select "Disk Utiliy", select the 1st drive in the left pane, click on the "Erase" tab, select "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" in the Volume Format pop-up, then give your new drive a name and click "Erase". THIS WILL ERASE YOUR DRIVE!

Do the same thing with your backup drive.

Third: quit the application by going to the "Disk Utility" menu adn select "Quit".

Proceed with the installer and select the drive you want to boot on when it asks you... this will install OS X on the drive you selected...

For the backup, if you have OS X 10.5 Leopard, when you boot for the first time, the system should ask you if you want to use the other disk as a backup drive, just click yes. thanks

Trying to install software for new canon pixma mx700 on my imac (os leopard) every time i try the computer freezes


check if any updates to the software/driver is avaliable for you try with the most updated version

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=15651#DownloadDetailAct

compatibility is not an issue as your printer is supported by your os, and there's nothing I saw in the FAQ,

you may want to write to cannon with specifics on your problem as they may have other suggestions:
