How can i get for free the install disc


  • Hi Angel
    Apple don't put their OS on DVD any more. It's usually downloaded directly from the internet. But, if you live near an Apple Store you could take a USB Memory Stick in the shop and one of the guys could download the installer to the stick.
    You could also try downloading from here www.fenopy.se/?keyword=Mac+OSX+10.5
    If your machine can handle it (CPU 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    or better), get the latest OSX 10.9 Maverics.
    It's now available for free.
    But you may need to use a friends Mac to download off the internet!
    You can also make a bootable USB 32GB memory stick to assist.
    Here www.fenopy.se/?keyword=USB+OSX
    See OSX Lion 10 7 3 USB STick Creator
    To find out more about your Mac Model and all of its capabilities... download a copy of MacTracker.
    Here... www.macupdate.com/app/mac/5968/mactracker
    These days you really must have an external hard drive of at least 1TB or so to keep copies of your files on. Partition the drive into 2or3 parts and keep one (60GB) as a clean OSX emergency boot.
    I always use Carbon Copy Cloner to make a bootable "CLONE" of my PowerBook on my external drive.. That way if you ever get into boot problems you just connect the external boot disk, Restart the Mac, then hold the option key down and choose the external OSX Boot drive that you want to restart from. Then you use the Disk Utility program to fix Permissions & Test your internal Hard Drive.
    I make a "CLONE" at least once a year then test that it boots then I wipe (Format) my internal HD and install clean updated OSX. Reboot and choose the Migration Assistant to put all my data back from the Clone I made.
    Have been doing this for years now. Keeps the Mac software in prime condition.
    Hope All That Makes Sense
    Cheers

How to install a .dmg from pc to mac


use a thumb drive to move the disk image from your pc to your mac. Partition the thumb drive within Disk Utility as Ex-Fat and it will be readable in Windows and OSX and will not have the file limit of 4GB that Fat32 has.

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

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.

Cant find the disc on my powerbook g4


STart up your G4 using the OS disc for leopard, but instead of reinstalling the system, go to the menu at the top of the screen and Launch Disk Utility.
You may need to remount your hard drive. The disk utitliy can do this for you. Then it should appear in the disk utillity window. Then you should be able to install the OS and away you go!

Macbook turns on but screen is blank .the arrow pointer came on for awhile but went blank and stayed blank


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. If none of this works you will need to buy a 8.1gb pen drive mac osx 10.6 update ($30 USD) then follow the instructions from http://www.maciverse.com/installing-snow-leopard-onto-an-external-hard-drive.html to create a temporary start up disk. Then go to your old Hard Drive Macintosh HD (should be on the desktop) and copy/backup important files and then turn off and get a new hard drive try Ebay and ask if it will fit your macbook by using your model number found under your battery. Find instructions for install or take the hard drive to a pc shop and ask for them to switch them over. If they don't copy your old files you will need to do a fresh install with your mac osx cd/dvd.
Note: You can use the pendrive as a temporary for as long as you want, to select it hold down ALT at startup and select the disk thats not macintosh hd or a cd/dvd. If you can't find an 8.1gb pen drive get a 16gb pendrive. sorry about the URL the link button wasn't working for some reason

I Have a MAC OSX 101.5 can I install leopard


Here are the minimum specs your Mac will need to run Leopard, from Apple:
  • Intel, G5, or 867MHz+ G4 processor
  • 512 megs of RAM (though if you only have 512 megs of RAM you should get some more. Trust me, I'm a pundit)
  • DVD drive (Leopard is shipping on a DVD, and your Mac needs to read it to be able to install it)
  • 9GB of free disk space (though I bet if you customize the install and leave out all those printer drivers and extra languages you can save lots of space)
Go to your apple menu, and look on the "about this mac" If your machine doesn't have the mhz's you are out of luck. If you don't have a DVD drive, you are not going to be able to install either...
