Installing The Sims Bon Voyage expansion pack

I'm using Mac OSX. I have The Complete Sims but it does not have what is on the Bon Voyage expansion pack. When I try to install the expansion pack it tells me there is no software there to install it into. This is frustrating. Do I need a more primitive version of The Sims to be able to use this expansion pack? The Complete Sims is not actually complete at all and I didn't know I would have this problem when I ordered the expansion pack. Is there a way to do this or am I screwed? Thanks for your help

    Yes, I think this bites. What I'm guessing is that the expansion packs only work if you have one of the older versions of The Sims and they don't work at all for The Complete Sims, which is far from complete and doesn't include any of the stuff from their expansion packs. That's just a guess. What do you think?

    call me profoundly inept..I'm on their (SIMS) support page, and I'll be hard pressed to find an OSX support strategy..can you comment?

    that's all fine. what I'm confused on here, is where the SIMS compatibility with OSX comes in. I searched high and low to find something that suggests it's compatible. Can you illuminate us on this?

    if you're referring to a PC to Mac conversion pack, then you'll find it's totally an unsatisfactory approach. That's like a run time SIMS adventure, which would be the equivalent to an older 486 speed..oouuuuuchhhhhh

    guess you'll just need to hunker down and get one of those products that allow you to run windows on a mac, eh?

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

Windows


Hi benny, im Nick from germany.

In order to install Windows on a Mac computer you'll need these things:

- Apple Macintosh with Intel Processor
- Windows XP Install CD with Service Pack 2 or higher
- You can also use Windows Vista CD

To get started, you just need to start the mac and do a search for "Bootcamp" in Spotlight (the search in MacOSX, top right corner).

Note: This only works on Mac OSX Leopard, for Tiger its a little more tricky.

Once you started Bootcamp, it will guide you through the process of partitioning your harddrive and installing windows.

If it doesnt work, its probably the fault of the windows install cd. I had to use 3 different versions to get it to work.

If you need additional help, feel free to ask =)
