MacBook Laptop Will not boot from CD and OS freezes during setup


Since you have an Intel Mac book you can boot to DOS 6.22 and use Fdisk to remove your partition at which point you can format it and install Mac OS.

My PowerBook G4 does not recognize internal hard drive. when i boot without cd it will not boot and i will see a question mark on the screen and a small icon that represent mac os. i have Mac OS X 10.3...


If you plugged this into a PC and formatted it you probably formatted it with NTFS or another Microsoft file format. This will not be recognized by a Mac. You will need to pop the hard drive back into your Mac and boot to the installation CD. From here you will need to go into disk utility and reformat the drive with a GUID Mac Extended format partition. If you open disk utility and the drive doesn't show up you probably have an issue with the drive controller on the logic board.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

When i turn it on it wont stop loading and after about 10 mins it turns off


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

Try running a Disk Repair with Disk Utility using your Mac OS X installation disc or restore disc (which came with your Macbook)

font.f1 {font: 13.0px 'Myriad Pro'}
-RUN DISK UTILITY WITH STARTUP DISK-

Insert your Mac OS X Startup disk
•Reboot your Mac
•At the Apple Chime, press the C key and hold it until you see a White screen, gray Apple and eventually a Spinning gear.
• Release the C key only after you see the Spinning gear.
•Mac will boot from the startup disk to the Installer environment
• From the Installer Menu bar, click Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility application.
• Click on on the hard drive at the top of the window in the left sidebar and
• Select "Repair Disk"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair the disk until completion
• At the end of this process, reboot your Mac

See if that process helps bring your Macbook up to the normal desktop.

If it does not, use the SMC reset procedure.

-SMC RESET-
The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of your Mac computer.

It is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

• If the computer is on, turn it off.
• Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the computer's
battery.
• Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds and then
release the button.
• Reconnect the battery and AC Adapter.
• Press the power button to restart the computer

This should help resolve the issue for you. If it does not however, just let me know.

Thank you.

Regards,

I have an acer aspire laptop with genuine vista os. i didnt operate for quit sometime and now, when i wanted to use it. it even didnt boot giving me a message. 'boot manager missing'. what is the problem...


If your Windows Vista computer has encountered the dreaded "BOOTMGR is missing" error, you aren't alone. If the problem isn't hardware related you can fix it with relative ease as long as you have a Windows Vista DVD handy.Boot off the Windows Vista DVD and then click Next at the first prompt:You should see a link in the lower left-hand side for "Repair your computer"The installation process will attempt to find your Vista installation directory. If there's more than one in the list, select the correct one and then use the Next button again.Click the first link for "Startup Repair".The installation process will repair the system, and then prompt for you to reboot.Alternatively you could have chosen the Command Prompt option instead, and use the following command to fix the boot options only:
bootrec /fixboot.

At this point you should be able to reboot your computer, remove the DVD and everything should be working.

Just repaired g3 ibook. Hard drive needs formatting, as it has xp loaded on it. Ibook starts up, boot tone, proceeds to load, then screen has a file in the center of screen with the osx finder square face...


With the OS X Installer CD in the drive, try booting your mac and holding down the option key immediately after you hear the start up chime. This will (hopefully) load a firmware boot loader that will show available start up discs. Hopefully the OSX installer will show up as CD Icon. Select the Icon with your mouse or keyboard and press enter to start up with the Installer CD. From the installer you should be able to erase and format the drive as Mac OS Extended before installing OS X.


If the computer still won't boot from the CD double check that it is a retail OS X installer CD. If your CD has "software restore" or "ibook restore" or any other varient of restore written on the label; or if it names a particular model such as "ibook install" or "imac install" it is not a retail copy and may not be a bootable disc. A retail copy will only name the version of the operating system followed by the word install written on it's label and usually have a brief instruction on booting from the CD by holding the C key at startup.


Hope this helps, let me know what happens.

Folder with blinking question mark in it after start-up


Folder with a blinking question mark means a missing system folder, in other words there isn't an OS installed. To fix this you need to boot from the OS X installer CD. With the OS X installer CD in the drive, hold down the C key on your keyboard when you start your mac. This tells the mac to boot from the optical drive (i.e. CD drive) and load the OS X installer. From there just follow the onscreen instructions to install OS X.
Also, you should be aware that the ibook is not compatible with Windows XP. Only the newer “intel macs” of the past few years are compatible with XP. Your mac predates Apple's transition to intel processors and Windows XP compatibility on the mac platform by a few years. This is why your Windows XP CD didn't load on it. The ibook is Mac OS X only.
It only runs on Mac OS X however it is compatible with newer versions of the OS. 10.2 jaguar is kind of old and a little buggy. You may want to consider installing 10.4 Tiger for improved stability and performance. Avoid the newest version (10.5 Leopard) as it is geared towards newer and faster machines.
Hope this helps. Enjoy your mac
