Question about Apple OS Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I bought an used Mac Power PC G5 2 MGHz two years ago from a shop that refused to give me an Leopard 10.5.8 system start-up disk ( set ) saying he was not autherized to i had to get it from apple down

I need to download, buy , or cobble a startuo boot disk some how ! ! ! my system has already filled the boot drive i was never told that would happen or how to stop it from happening i am only able to function insafe mode that i tripped upon myself after buying several books i found halve of the key comboes do not function at all and i can only seem to get an authorized Apple system disk to try to boot [[ i found an old tiger 10.4 start-up disk for a mini i got from friend who sold his ] i can search the net but find most downloads just say ok but do not load a file on any of the 7 other drives attached, but DMG's do find their way on, so if i find an DMG of a boot-able i might be able to patch together something. fixed income prevents buying anything more the the Leopard offered from Apple, but like i said "can not find to use company checks to do that" - - respond to : servant0_1_net@netzero.net or servantsorg02@netzero.net c/o ServantMrCaryn Thanks to all who reply 8>D

Booting from the install disk should give you the option to reinstall it. During that process there are settings to delete the contents of the drive to ensure a clean instal. Remember however that this will wipe any personal files from the Mac as well and so back everything important up to external drives.

Those upgrade cards always have given me a problem with migrating to Leopard. If you can upgrade to a used G5 or even Intel basd mac you might be more happier with less hassle.

SOURCE: I have an Inspiron 1318 w/a 250 GB HD and Win

try this... boot to the original windows vista disc, DO NOT click on install now, there should be an option to repair you computer at the bottom of the screen. click on that, choose language and keyboard. choose startup repair.

if you've already tried that, ran a custom test on the hdd. first run the initial diags, press and hold FN while you turn on the computer, you should get a message diagnostic boot selected, release the FN key, wait for the result. if you don't get an error message continue the test, until it goes to a point if you like to continue the remaining memory test. choose NO, then press any, then choose test system, then choose CUSTOM TEST, select the HARD DRIVE at the bottom of the list, wait for the result for possible faulty hdd. hit me back on the results.

Trying to install HP photo smart c7180 on a mac and when clicking on the install icon a message window says power pc applications not supported


What version of system are you using on your mac, it is probably snow leopard (10.6) or lion (10.7). In snow leopard you can run powerpc applications but you need to install the part of the system that runs rosetta however in lion you can not run powerpc applications at all. This web page tells you how to instal rosetta on snow leopard http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/article/snow_leopard_installing_rosetta/ This webpage at hp will also give you some information http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02911238&cc=uk&dlc=en&lc=en&os=219&product=1153754&sw_lang= Hope this helps.

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.

Hi, Went to the Mac store to upgrade to Snow Leopard and was told my OS was "way too Old to upgrade to Snow Leopard!" Sorry, I'm a numbskull when it comes to these things. Figured as long as...


Apple recommends that if you wish to go from 10.4 to 10.6 then you should purchase the 10.6 Box Set.

System Requirements to run Snow Leopard:
  • Mac computer with an Intel processor
  • 1GB of memory
  • 5GB of available disk space
  • DVD drive for installation
Snow Leopard Installation Instructions:
  1. Just insert the DVD in the optical drive.
  2. Restart your Mac while holding down the C key.
  3. You will be guided through the installation procedure and be prompted at one point to choose which install option you want.
  4. Once the Snow Leopard install is completed the Mac will restart itself.
  5. You will probably be asked to register with Apple upon restart.
  6. Enjoy Snow Leopard on your Mac!
Q: Can I upgrade directly from Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)?

A: Yes. Apple recommends purchasing the Mac Boxed Set for this purpose, which will also update iLife (it is unknown at the time of this writing whether older versions of iLife work with Snow Leopard) and iWork. Also note that while it has been said that the $29 upgrade will work with 10.4, it is not officially supported and may be in violation of the licensing terms.

Q: What happened to the different install options? Can't I do an Archive & Install?

A: Apple has revamped the familiar installation options for Mac OS X. You now have two choices, either a straight upgrade or a clean install. Supposedly if you choose to do a straight upgrade, what actually goes on behind the scenes is what was traditionally known as an Archive & Install.

Q: Is there anything I can do to better prepare myself for the upgrade?

A: Yes. It is advisable to run a Verify/Repair Permissions and Verify/Repair Disk in Disk Utility. You may also want to run the maintenance tasks in Onyx. And finally, it would be wise to get your applications up to date using a program like AppFresh.

Macbook black will not start beyond the initial 'bong'. Blue screen followed by endless spinning gear. PRAM, SMV reset, no go. Safe mode can't complete. With battery or on power adapter same result....


Hello yang2699tlk,
Try this instead of using your Leopard Disc.

  1. Immediately after the "bong" press and hold down "Command + S".
  2. Wait for blinking cursor and then type fsck -y (exactly like that).
  3. If you receive an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.
  4. If you receive a "Disk has been modified" then repeat the fsck -y command until you get an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.

This set of commands entered in "Single User Mode" will repair your disk. If this does not work remove the hard drive, plug it into another Mac and transfer your data to a different computer. Then install a new hard drive and reinstall Mac OS X.

Hope this helps, don't forget to vote. Thanks.

Error -37


Hi, sorry you are having problems,
Well, here is what error -37 is: Code: error -37 bdNamErr Description: Bad file name (File System Error)
Basically, it is saying you cannot save a file by that name in that place....
Did you try saving it elsewhere on your Mac, like on the desktop ?
Just a side note, Apple stopped development on AppleWorks some time ago ( 3 years ) in favour of iWork. I highly recommend getting the newest version of iWork 09, it's compatible with all your Works documents and is really built for MacOS X 10.5, Leopard.
What do you mean whe you say “ Before I reimaged the machine ..” ?
