HI. When you opened up your new Mac and went through the setting up procedure it asked you if you wanted to transfer files from your old iMac. If you had said yes then AW would have transferred over OK.
If you still have your old imac then you can use Migration Assistant. It should allow you to do the transfer.
Once done you should update to AW 6.2.9

Not really, If it was a legit copy when appleworks was installed it 'unpacked' all its information from a cd/dvd putting all the info it needed to run appleworks onto your mac and its unlikely the installer which isn't needed to run the software was copied over
Also your macbook uses a different O.S to your imac which would mean fiddling about changing the os settings.
Might be worth doing a search on your imac for .dmg
just type .dmg into your mac (not internet) search bar and let it search your mac, if there is an install file for appleworks this should find it
If you dont use appleworks for the database or drawing function maybe have a look at iWORK for you new mac
Sure you will love your new macbook though :)

No, Its a copyright (r) cd. Which obviously means you can't copy it. And if you did it would be illegal. Im not accusing you or anything, I'm just giving my solution.
Sorry for an inconvenience...
Good Luck

How to replace solid state hard drive on imac computer


Hi Felix

Pretty simple really.... once you get the iMac opened!
See below

Simply find the existing hard drive, disconnect and slip it out.
You might have to remove a couple of screw in locating studs from the old drive and add to the new drive.
The connectors should match up with the existing cable.
Called SATA (Serial ATA)
The temperature sensor is stuck to the outside of the drive, carefully peel it off and stick it on the new drive.

Use Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) to make a clone copy of your existing drive or install a new OS X (Downloadt off Apple Site)
Good Luck

I'll assume you know that Maverics, Yosemite OS X are free to download. And the latest El Capitan is due in Days.

I would like to know if an older hard drive from imac model A1076 could be installed in a slightly newer imac, model A1145 and have it be compatible and working with no problems?


Hard drives are universal, and based on physical connection / type. So your older HD should work even if you have newer SATA connection. The connection is backwards compatible.

IMac Missing operating system screen


The CD was most likely not burned in the correct way that Apple requires for OS installs. You can't just simple "copy" a system disk.

Try getting a hold of an actual legitimate copy of the OS and try again. This is not generally a problem when actual system disks are used.

Installing Parallels should not change the way your optical drive works.

Try resetting the SMC as per the following article:

If that doesn't work, try resetting the PRAM:

If these do not resolve the issue you will likely need repair.

I want to eject cd from cd rom apple system imac


To eject a CD/DVD that is not recognized by your computer, boot up while holding down the eject button on your keyboard, and continue to hold down eject until the disk ejects.

If this does not work, hold down your mouse button while booting up in the same way.

If neither of these work, open Terminal and type in the following:

drutil tray eject

If your disc does still not eject, your optical drive likely needs repair.

Blueberry iMac with slot-loading CD rom drive will


It would be very difficult to open up the imac to retrieve the disc as the CD drive is totally enclosed and would probably result in it not be functional after removing the disk. Have a look at the following article on the apple website
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3007?viewlocale=en_US as it does indicate that the slot loading imac does have a hole for paperclip ejection. You could also try opening up disk utility and and clicking on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject. Hope this helps.
