Insufficient Permission I had the same problem. I'm trying to install OS X MOUNTAIN LION in VMware Workstation 8.3 for Windows. In the end, when I try to run the virtual machine an error telling me that I have access denied for insufficient permissions. I'm already working as an administrator. Have click Run as administrator. I've tried changing the READ ONLY and the system allows not change. I believe not change by being in the mounted image. I think it must be some locking system that is not allowing. What can I do?? I'm waiting. Thank you very much. Tomas

Factory reset macbook without disk


You cannot do what you want without the original installer disc that came with the computer or a later version of OS X installer, unless the computer came originally with Lion or Mountain Lion.
Follow these instructions step by step to prepare a Mac for sale:
Step One - Back up your data:
A. If you have any Virtual PCs shut them down. They cannot be in their "fast saved" state. They must be shut down from inside Windows.
B. Clone to an external drive using using Carbon Copy Cloner.
1. Open Carbon Copy Cloner.
2. Select the Source volume from the Select a source drop down menu on the left side.
3. Select the Destination volume from the Select a destination drop down menu on the right
side.
4. Click on the Clone button. If you are prompted about creating a clone of the Recovery HD be
sure to opt for that.
Destination means a freshly erased external backup drive. Source means the internal
startup drive.
Step Two - Prepare the machine for the new buyer:
1. De-authorize the computer in iTunes! De-authorize both iTunes and Audible accounts.
2, Remove any Open Firmware passwords or Firmware passwords.
3. Turn the brightness full up and volume nearly so.
4. Turn off File Vault, if enabled.
5. Disable iCloud, if enabled: See What to do with iCloud before selling your computer.
Step Three - Install a fresh OS:
A. Snow Leopard and earlier versions of OS X
1. Insert the original OS X install CD/DVD that came with your computer.
2. Restart the computer while holding down the C key to boot from the CD/DVD.
3. Select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu; repartition and reformat the internal hard drive.
Optionally, click on the Security button and set the Zero Data option to one-pass.
4. Install OS X.
5. Upon completion DO NOT restart the computer.
6. Shutdown the computer.
B. Lion and Mountain Lion (if pre-installed on the computer at purchase*)
Note: You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest using Ethernet if possible because
it is three times faster than wireless.
1. Restart the computer while holding down the COMMAND and R keys until the Mac OS X
Utilities window appears.
2. Select Disk Utility from the Mac OS X Utilities window and click on the Continue button.
3. After DU loads select your startup volume (usually Macintosh HD) from the left side list. Click
on the Erase tab in the DU main window.
4. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Optionally, click on the Security button
and set the Zero Data option to one-pass.
5. Click on the Erase button and wait until the process has completed.
6. Quit DU and return to the Mac OS X Utilities window.
7. Select Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion and click on the Install button.
8. Upon completion shutdown the computer.
*If your computer came with Lion or Mountain Lion pre-installed then you are entitled to transfer your license once. If you purchased Lion or Mountain Lion from the App Store then you cannot transfer your license to another party. In the case of the latter you should install the original version of OS X that came with your computer. You need to repartition the hard drive as well as reformat it; this will assure that the Recovery HD partition is removed. See Step Three above. You may verify these requirements by reviewing your OS X Software License.

Where do I purchase os x mountain lion rebootable cd or complete disc


Lion, Mountain Lion, and Mavericks (10.7, 10.8, and 10.9 respectively) do not come on a physical CD or DVD. They are downloaded and installed through the Mac App Store.

After installing 10.7 or later, a 'hidden' partition is created on your computer that serves the same function as the physical discs did in earlier versions of OS X (10.6 and earlier), giving you access to Disk Utility, Install OS X, Get Help Online, and other functions that previously were accessed from a physical disc.
If for some reason the hard drive is damaged or the Recovery Partition is otherwise inaccessible, you can access the same utilities over the internet using Internet Recovery.

One can, however, create a bootable flash drive as a physical backup of your Recovery Partition using Recovery Disk Assistant.

All the information on how to access Recovery Partition, Internet Recovery, and Recovery Disk Assistant are available from the following articles:

Hope by doing that you get the solution.

Apple OS X Mountain Lion and Facebook help please


Unfortunately Apple does not have Facebook integration for Mountain Lion yet. It is expected to be released in the fall or so.

You are able to integrate with Twitter however, if you use that social media site.

My macbook shows a white screen and a sound only and after that nothing happens


JUST TRY TO FOLLOW THE STEPS IT WILL BE VERY HELPFUL
Many computer shoppers choose to buy a Mac not only to use OS X, but Windows as well. That is one strong advantage that Macs have in the Mac vs PC war. Apple computers are capable of running Windows, either through Bootcamp or virtual machines.
So, why aren't Windows PC's capable of running OS X? Well, Windows PC's are capable of running OS X. But, it is against Apple's licensing agreement to do so. Thus, this article is intended for educational and demonstration purposes only. If you want to run OS X the best way possible, get a Mac.
*In order for this to work, your computer must have a processor that supports virtualization. If it does not, you may receive errors. For the most part, any newer processor lines: Core 2 Duo, Quad Core, and Core i7 should all work fine.
But, don't expect to not get errors if you are using an older Pentium 4 machine. The processor must be Intel and not AMD*
Because we will be installing OS X on top of Windows through a virtual machine, the first step is to get some virtual machine software. For this demo, we will be using VMware's Workstation 7.
If you do not feel like purchasing Workstation 7 at this time, you can get a limited trial here. The download may take a good half an hour to complete. Workstation is a 512MB file.
Upon download, go ahead and install Workstation 7 onto your computer. The installation process is very simple just launch the installer, and the VMware installer will guide you through the rest.
One thing to note, when it asks your if you want to do a custom install or a typical install, choose typical install. After the installer finishes, restart your computer
Now that you have Workstation 7 installed, you need a pre-configured VMware virtual machine file to install Snow Leopard on top of. Download this file (alt download) and save it to your desktop.
After you have the pre-configured virtual machine file downloaded, you will need to extract the files using WinRAR or another archive utility. If you do not have an archive utility, you can get WinRAR here.
Note: This file is just a disk image framework, no viruses or anything like that. VMware Workstation uses the disk image format to save and contain virtual machines.
Time to start installing Snow Leopard. Launch VMware Workstation by using the path Start > All Programs > VMware > VMware Workstation. Open up the VMware disk image framework that you just downloaded and extracted.
Select File > Open. Navigate to your Snowy_VM folder, open it, open up the next folder that says "Mac OS X 10.6 Server (experimental).vmwarevm, and choose the 2KB file that is named Mac OS X Server 10.6 (experimental). Click the open button to load the virtual machine.
From the Mac OS X Server tab in the VMware Workstation window, click the edit virtual machine settings icon. You may adjust the hard drive size, memory, etc, to your liking.
Select CD/DVD (IDE) and under the Connection settings, select Use ISO Image File. Click the Browse button and navigate to the Darwin_Snow.iso which is located in your Snowy_VM folder. Click the Open button to select the virtual machine.
Now it's time to power on the virtual machine. Click the Power on this virtual machine option. As soon as the process starts, hold down the F8 key on your keyboard. You should be prompted with a boot menu screen.
If you have not done so already, insert your OS X Snow Leopard Install DVD into your computer's CD/DVD drive. So far, you have loaded a workable virtual machine and framework into VMware Workstation.
Now it's time to actually install Snow Leopard onto that virtual machine disk image. You should see some settings icons located at the bottom right portion of the VMware window. Right-click the icon that looks like a CD and choose settings from the pop up menu.
Go back into the boot screen and select the option C Boot from DVD. Press the F8 button on your keyboard for advanced options and type "-v" without the quotes and hit enter. Now, VMware Workstation should boot your Snow Leopard install disc. It may take a couple of minutes to load
That's all there is to it. You should now be at the normal Snow Leopard install screen. Click continue on the first screen that comes up. On the second screen, click the utilities option in the install window and select disk utility. Use disk utility to change the hard drive format type to OS X Extended (Journaled). Exit disk utility and let OS X install completely.
Upon install of Snow Leopard, your virtual machine will restart. After it restarts you will need to do a couple of things to get into Snow Leopard. Select CD/DVD options, like you did before, and use the Use ISO Image File option.
