Ok I have bad news and good news for you.
1. Apple does not support BootCamp on OS X 10.4 or earlier (You most likely know this)
Good news: Parallels or VMWare Fusion both allow you to install Windows. While it does cost to get these there are some real advantages: like running the Mac OS and Window at the same time, being able to move your files between the OSes, and they should be able to import your old bootcamp setup.
Hope this helps.

1.Try a Safe Boot
Mac OS X 10.2 and later Safe Boot includes disk checking and repair. First start your Mac in Safe Mode. To do this, shut down your Mac. Now Turn on your computer by pressing the power key while holding down the Shift key. When you see the Apple logo, release the Shift key. After your Mac fully starts, restart your computer normally without holding any keys/buttons during startup. Note that Safe Boot is slower to boot.
2.Run Disk Utility
Turn your Mac off by holding down the power button for a few seconds. Turn on your Mac and hold down the Command and R keys until you see the Apple logo. Then you should see a "Mac OS X Utilities" window. Select Disk Utility, click your OS X hard drive and select verify/repair disk.
3.Reset PRAM
This may fix your boot failure. PRAM ("parameter random-access memory") stores some of your settings. You may reset PRAM. To do that, turn off your Mac. Now turn on your Mac. Then, immediately, hold down the Option-Command-P-R keys until your Mac restarts. When your Mac is starting up, release the keys.
4.Reinstall Mac OS X
If nothing above works, you may try this. Your Mac needs to be connected to the Internet. See number#2 above. Follow the same steps. Restart your Mac and hold down the Command key and the R key until the Apple icon appears; when you see the Mac OS X utilities window, select the Reinstall option.

My 17 inch macbook pro would not boot up to the login page, so I reset the SMC and got the login window to come up. Now I've tried logging in with my correct password and it appears to be going to the...


This is a pretty unusual problem but it should be easy enough to fix. If you're getting the login screen after logging in and it keeps doing the same thing without any prompt from you, there's a problem with the login kernel of the OS itself.

I'd recommend booting to the install DVD (Mac OS X Install DVD) - do this by inserting it and restarting by holding down the 'C' key until you see the Apple logo and spinning gear.

After choosing your language, on the next screen go to the Utilities menu in the upper left, choose Disk Utility, choose 'Mac HD' on the left and click 'Repair Disk.' There will also be 'Repair Disk Permission,' IGNORE IT.

Ostensibly it should find and repair the problem. To restart, go to Mac OS X Installer > Quit Mac OS X Installer and choose restart.

If the problem persists, boot to the install DVD again and reinstall - it will not mess with any of your documents, movies, music, or other personal documents. Basically just keep hitting next/agree/continue until it says it is installing, which will take 30-45 minutes.

Good luck!

Hard disk crashed on macbook


You can tell if your hard drive for your Macbook Pro has really crashed, if you attempt to run these 3 diagnose and repair procedures and there is no response from the hard drive:

1st Procedure:

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} font.f2 {font: 14.0px Myriad Pro} - USING FSCK COMMAND TO VERIFY AND REPAIR DISK-
Start up your computer in Single-User Mode to reach the command line by doing this:
•Make sure your Mac is shutdown.
• Reboot your Mac
• When Mac starts up, press the Apple Command key+ S Key
- A black screen, with white text appears
• At the command-line prompt, type /sbin/fsck -fy
• Press Return.
--fsck will run through a series of tests and will return information about your disk's use and fragmentation. When completed, it will display this message if no issue is found:

The volume (name_of_your_Mac_volume) appears to be OK

If fsck found issues and has altered, repaired, or fixed anything, it will display this message: --FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED--

Important: If this message appears, repeat the fsck command you typed at the beginning, until fsck tells you that your volume appears to be OK (first-pass repairs may uncover additional issues, so this is a normal thing to do).

• When fsck reports that your volume is OK, type reboot at the prompt and then press Return.
• This last command after completing the fsck process, is going to attempt to boot your Mac to the main desktop.

If unable to reach your Desktop with the fsck procedure, go to the next step.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Procedure # 2
font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro}
-RUN DISK UTILITY WITH STARTUP DISK-

Insert your Mac OS X Startup disk
•Reboot your Mac
•At the Apple Chime, press the C key and hold it until you see a White screen, gray Apple and eventually a Spinning gear.
• Release the C key only after you see the Spinning gear.
•Mac will boot from the startup disk to the Installer environment
• From the Installer Menu bar, click Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility application.
• Click on on the hard drive at the top of the window in the left sidebar and
• Select "Repair Disk"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair the disk until completion
• At the end of this process, reboot your Mac

* If you have still not gotten a successful boot to your main desktop, try this final step.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Procedure # 3
My recommendation for this issue, is that you use the Archive and Install procedure to resolve this issue.

What this process consists of (using your Mac OS X install disc),is removing the damaged or corrupted Mac OS X directory and replacing it with a brand new directory.

This procedure also allows you to save your applications, files and folders without the old directory interferring with you then accessing those files.

-ARCHIVE AND INSTALL-

• Start up from your Mac OS X Install Disc 1 or Install DVD. Please remember to use the install disc that matches the current operating system your system haves.

Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key.
• Hold the C key until you see a White screen, with a Gray Apple icon and eventually a Spinning gear.
• Release the C key only after you see the Spinning gear.

-Your mac will now boot from the disc and load into the Installer environment.

• Select your language. The Welcome to the Mac OS X Installer window appears.
• Click Continue. The Important Information window appears.
• Follow the prompts until you get to the licensing agreement screen
• An agreement sheet appears. If you agree with
the license agreement, click Agree. Then Select a
Destination window appears.
• Click the volume that you wish to install to (your primary hard drive).
• Click Options. The installation options sheet appears.
• Select Archive and Install.
• Select the volume which already has Mac OS X installed.
• You should also select Preserve Users and Network Settings, to preserve network and Home directory settings.

• Click OK.
• Click Continue to begin the installation.
• Once the Archive and Install is completed, when you reach your desktop be sure to run all Software updates to bring your new Mac OS X directory back
up to current.

Also, if you look inside your Macintosh HD icon on your Desktop, look for a folder entitled "Previous System Folder" which will have all of your previous Home folder files prior to the Archive and Install.

Here is the link (below) from Apple for more information about how to locate the Previous System Folder

How to locate Previous System Folder (after Archive and Install)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
If there is still no responsiveness of the hard drive after this last procedure, your best option would be to take your Macbook Pro in for repair or replacement of the hard drive, to your local Apple retail store Genius bar or local Apple authorized service center.

Best Regards,

Wont start up completly


there is the single user start-up, which you were thinking of. There is also a safe-boot for macs.

To start up into Safe Mode (to Safe Boot), do this:

1. Be sure the computer is shut down.
2. Press the power button.
3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone but not before.
4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).

During startup in Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you will see "Safe Boot" on the login window, which appears even if you normally log in automatically.

During startup in Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.3.9, you will see "Safe Boot" on the Mac OS X startup screen.

To leave Safe Mode in any version of Mac OS X, restart the computer normally, without holding any keys during startup.

Can't install leopard


Computer check The Mac OS X Installer makes sure your computer can use the version of Mac OS X you're trying to install.
Troubleshooting tip: If you see a message that you cannot install Mac OS X on this computer, even though it should work with Mac OS X, you may need to install a firmware update. Restart your computer from the hard drive and install the latest firmware :

Os x on windows question


Hi there
The answer to your question is yes and no.

You cannot run OS X on a PC but you can run a windows OS on the new intel macs.

With the new macs you can run it either from boot up in a windows environment (Boot Camp. I would recommend XP not Vista) or you can install an application call 'Parallels' where you can run both systems side by side.

I have both on my portable. There are some windows app's that work better from 'Boot Camp' the only problem with that is you have to shut the mac down and boot to which system you want to use. Where as with Parallels you can drag files and folders from the mac desk top onto the windows. And the switch is really cool.

But you will need to buy a mac. You love it.

How i install window xp in macbook with preinstalled os x


Boot camp and/ or Parallels. You need software to create a virtual, bootable partition. The version of windows you install cannot be OEM, or a transferred license. I would recommend LINUX instead of windows XP. It's free and stable and like OS X, based on UNIX.
