Recovery System

OS X Recovery includes a built in set of utilities as part of the Recovery System. To start your computer from Recovery, restart your Mac and hold down the Command key and the R key (Command-R). Press and hold these keys until the Apple logo appears. This indicates that your Mac is starting up. After the Recovery System finishes starting up, you should see a desktop with an OS X menu bar and a "Mac OS X Utilities" window. Note: If you see a login window or your own desktop and icons, it's possible that you didn't hold Command-R early enough. Restart and try again.

SOURCE: what courses the hard drive to file on a mac book pro laptop.

Hi Stephanie
This is one of those questions that's virtually impossible to answer, it could be anything.
Your best option is to take to a mac specialist (the dealer where you bought it) or to an Apple Store if you have one near by.
It may not need a new hard drive, it may just be corrupted and need sorting out. On the other hand it could have failed mechanically and will need to be replaced - check your warranty. There have been a number of reports of HDs failing in some models and Apple have replaced them free of charge as there was a manufacturing fault at the HD factory that didn't come to light until the drives had been running for about a year.
You have been using Time Machine to back up your work haven't you?

SOURCE: need help mac book pro

Hi Daniel
Try this. Make sure your boot CD/DVD is in the drive and switch off the computer - hold down the power button until it goes off completely - it takes 7 to 10 seconds. Then restart the mac but immediately press and hold the alt key (or option key - the one next to the key with the pretzel on it) After a moment or two you should get a blue screen with the spinning pizza. After about another 10 seconds or so you should get an icon of your HD and an icon for the CD/DVD If you only get the CD/DVD then your HD has a problem. If your get neither then you had best take it to a service centre as there is something more seriously wrong.
Assuming you get the CD/DVD icon click on it then press the big arrow that should also be there (NOT the bendy arrow - that means Go back)
The computer should then start up from the CD/DVD. Once you get the Install screen come up, go to the menu bar and find 'Disk Utility'.
This will take over and you can run the first aid routine IF the utility can actually see your HD. With luck it will and will sort it out. then quit the utility and restart the computer and see what happens.
If on the other hand you didn't get anywhere, or disk utility gave you a failure message, then you need some more aggressive software like DiskWarrior or Drive Genius. They are both very good at restoring misbehaving or non-mounting HDs.
On the more black side, Apple unfortunately managed to fit a batch of bad HDs to some macbooks. These were made by Seagate. They ran beautifully for about a year and then failed catastrophically. Apple replaced these drive without question but unfortunately the data on them was completely lost. One of my clients send their drive to Ontrack who returned it saying that no recovery was possible.
So be prepard for the worst.

SOURCE: Lost install disk for Mac book pro My 13" Mac book

You will need some install disks to even begin working on your issue.
Your options:

  • Find someone with the same model MacBook Pro and borrow the disks.
  • Buy a copy of Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) and use them. If you are going to buy a set you might as well update to Snow Leopard (10.6)
  • Check eBay for install disks but make sure they are for the same model MacBook Pro.
  • Contact an Apple service center and purchase a replacement set of install disks.
Once you have a install CD, I would recommend backing up your system by making a disk image of the hard drive to an external drive. Then doing a clean install and then using the Migration Assistant to restore your user files to the clean install on your hard drive.

How to reset password on mac osx


it is different depending on what version of OSX you're using.

If you have a boot disk, boot with it and go to the password utility.

If not, you'll have to look up the process for doing it from command prompt. Be aware that lots of people try to do this after stealing machines, so it's not something posted everywhere.r

Operating System Requirements


No Problem
Always do a full backup before updating your Mac OSX. Use Carbon Copy Cloner to make a bootable "Clone" of your current Hard Disk. Once the clone is done... Boot from the clone. (Hold Option Key down at Startup and choose external HardDrive with new clone OSX)
Verify that this clone Boots & has all of your current data.
Use the "Mac Tracker" App on the Mac or iPhone to see what the maximum OSX system your model can handle. (Makes no sense in installing just OSX10.5 if you can go to say OSX10.7
Download a copy of the MacOSX 10.5.8 installer DVD (Saved as a .DMG file here Fenopy.se (Search for OSX 10.5). OR OSX10.9 (free download) if your Mac can run on this latest OSX.
Burn your OSX Install software to DVD. Use Disk Utility with your .DMG (Disk Image) File and select the .dmg from the LH Side menu to burn to DVD.
Once burned, try booting from the DVD. If that works OK then you are ready to go. BUT not quite yet.
You really don't want to install a new clean system over top of your existing system. This would be like a Band Aid Fix.
(This is where you must have your current existing system cloned to an external hard drive. Just like i mentioned above.)
Because, now you will start up or "boot" your computer from the DVD installer disk you just made. You will find the Disk Utility tool in the top menu. Use this to FORMAT your internal Hard Drive. (Dont Have your External Drives connected at this time... for safety.)
Choose ERASE or Partition and Select "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" as the format type.
This process only takes a few minutes. If you have more time you can select the Security Option (choose fastest or single pass) then hit erase button. The security option in this case is only used to write "ones" to every sector on the disk thereby thoroughly testing the drive. This happens to be the ideal time to make sure you have a good flawless internal hard drive. Peace of Mind for older Macs.
Once completed, your drive is totally empty, you have lost everything unless you have made a "clone" beforehand.
Now you can run the installer and leave that process to complete for half an hour or so.
When installer has finished the Mac should reboot itself (you will hear install Jingle), with the new clean OSX installed. You can then manually answer all the questions if you want and give it your Network passwords etc. OR You can select Migration Assistant and migrate all your previous files & settings automatically from that external drive "clone" you made earlier.
You should now have almost a brand new clean Mac to install your new scanner software on.
Also... if you only installed say OSX10.5.0 then you will have updates to download on line, then install, to bring your Mac up to 10.5.8
I run this process on my Mac's at least once a year so that I always have a clean OSX with defragged hard drive so I can work reliably for the next few months. If not... I still have my "Clone" to boot from.
By the way Apple's latest systems since 10.7 (I Think) have an emergency boot partition automatically installed by the installer software. You just re boot & hold the OPTION KEY down and you are given the choice of booting from this bare minimum emergency system. It is heavily limited as to it's functionality but Disk Utility is there to look for problems.)
Good Luck

To be able to do that you need to use a cups driver.
Try www.cups.org
try a driver for datamax or for Zebra if you have the pplz option
Else you'll have to write one.

Mac ibook wont boot past biue screen .keep running


Try holding down ALT while booting up and select Macintosh HD. If that doesn't work try inserting your mac osx install CD or DVD restart hold down ALT. Select the CD using the arrow keys after the CD has loaded go up to the drop down menus and go to disk utility, then click on your main boot disk (macintosh HD) and under the First AID tab (if your using osx) click verify permissions and restore permissions, then click verify disk and repair disk. Try to boot up. If this doesn't work restart leaving work mac osx CD in hold down D then follow the disk checker steps. This will tell you if there are any errors on your disk (hard drive). If there are you need to get it fixed or replaced.

Unable to boot up.


Try plugging your laptop into a monitor to see if the laptop boots up but the screen doesn't work.

If you have an image on the secondary monitor, sounds like the lcd on your laptop is defunct and should be repaired or replaced by an authorized Apple dealer or repair shop.

Either way you can take your MacBook into your nearest Apple Authorized repair shop and have them look into.
