Depending on the year an model of hardware, you may not be able to upgrade your OS. If you have 32bit architecture, you are stuck at Snow Leopard. Good Luck!

This should be a simple fix by installing the latest updates. I would talk to the seller you purchased it from or even check some of the information and tips at http://justgoodbites.com. You should be able to install pages with the latest version no matter whether you purchased a refurbished Mac or a brand new one.

What type of Mac is it? PowerPC G4, Laptop, etc? You can copy the files from the Mac partition to the mounted Virtual PC volume and have the XP side find the new files. It is duplication but it is the only way I have found to work without causing other problems.

iMac G5's cannot run windows alone, but older software can be purchased like Virtual PC to run windows on that unit.

SOURCE: Macintosh HD will open from

Sounds like you may have some permissions issues - I would suggest sticking in the OS disc that came with your iMac, restarting, and holding the "C" key when you hear the chime - this will make it boot off the CD. Once booted from it, go to Tools->Disk Utility, choose your disk, and do "Repair Permissions". Once that is done, you can quit the installer and restart. If that doesn't work, the next step I would recommend is running DiskWarrior, which is $99 - this is like an industrial permissions/hard drive directory repair disc, used by many professionals. If that doesn't solve it, you will likely have to back up your user data and do a fresh install of the OS from the discs you have. Good luck!

SOURCE: i install and bootcamp and resize the disk to

I understand your problem to be that at the time you were executing the critical reboot just prior to installing Windows with Boot Camp, you placed the Windows CD into the wrong optical drive. Now your machine is stuck at the gray screen and is not responding to anything and will not boot from the system DVD
I have encountered this problem previously. The solution is to boot from an external drive containing a valid copy of the Mac OS. Although your machine will not boot from a DVD at this point, it WILL boot from an external drive if you hold down the Option key after you hear the startup chime, and select that drive's icon when it appears. Once you have successfully booted, go to System Preferences / Startup Disk to select the Mac partition of your internal drive, and your machine will reboot normally.

This leaves only the question of how you obtain an external drive containing a valid of the Mac OS. Some options are 1) a cloned backup drive, 2) another Macintosh via "Target Disk Mode," or 3) have someone create you such a disk from another machine. On the plus side, this solution involves no loss of your data, which makes it worth pursuing.

Can I use a Bytecc BT-144 usb external floppy disk drive with an iMac running OS 10.10.1?


I'm not a Mac tech, but I wouldn't see why not. Floppy drives are kinda old school now. You may need a driver for the floppy. Check online and see what you can find. Download and install it.

Or you may have to plug the floppy in, then reboot, to get the Mac to recognize it, especially with a USB port. Some old Windozz machines were like that...maybe your Mac too????

Mac OS is very close to Linux/Unix systems, which have awful support for floppy drives. That's another possibility.

If your windows machine can't read the disk, makes me think the floppy drive is bad or you have corrupted files on the disk. Try a couple known good floppy disks on the Windoz box and see what happens. Or another removable floppy drive. They cost $5 to $10 now.

As far as I know, there are no legitimate download sites for the Mac OS 10.x installer. For your computer, you'd want an OS 10.5 installation disk set. You can find them on eBay for about $50 or so.

How do I transfer my Tree Maker files from my PC to my iMac.


Family Tree Maker has a Mac version of their software available on their website.
This link also provides some possible solutions for your situation for converting PC version to Mac.

http://ancestry.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3916



If you have any reason to not switch to the Mac version of Family Tree Maker, or have other PC software that may not not be available for Mac, there is an easy solution for this as well, but does require purchasing a copy of Windows. You can install Windows as a second operating system on your Mac to support those applications not compatible with Mac. This can be done using the built in "Bootcamp" utility on your Mac. This allows you to boot to any version of Windows or Linux, as well as your Mac OS. Another method is to install "Parallels" for Mac, which also allows you to install multiple operatings systems, but with the added ability to Mac OS X and Windows simultaneously.

It gives you the basics. The support section on the apple website should help you as well also the help on Leopard is quite good. But if you want to get more information it is probably advisable to visit your local library or buy something like Dummies Guide to Leopard (Not Snow Leopard)
