Yeah!  I got that a lot!  If you use virtual desktops sometimes it launches or is already launched, but on some other desktop that's not in focus.
  It turns out things just don't seem to be launching from the graphical interface; however, if you go into utilities and can get 'console' to launch you can see an error console that drops hints of why things aren't going smoothly.

  Usually some resource limit (which you can change to fix things) is being exceeded...virtual memory in use, for example.  Sometimes you just don't have the kind of CPU or videocard or Dock setup the program requires.

  You should be sure check out the Missing Manual by David Pogue, and run an antivirus scan sometime, too.  Salud!

Make osx dvd image in mac


Making a DVD Image...............

Step 1. Insert the retail Mac OS X Install DVD into your drive.

Step 2. Launch Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities).

Step 3. In Disk Utility, you will notice a white pane on the left hand side. In the pane, select the Mac OS X Install DVD by clicking on it once.

Step 4. Click New Image on the Disk Utility toolbar.

Step 5. A dialog box will appear. Give the new image a name. I used 'Mac OS X Install DVD'. Select the destination where you wish to save it. LeaveImage Format at Compressed (default) and Encryption at None (default).

Step 6. Click Save to begin creating the image.

Step 7. Once your image has been created DO NOT mount it. Leave the image alone and proceed to the next section.



Burning the Image...................

Step 1. Launch Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities).

Step 2. Click Burn on the Disk Utility toolbar (upper left).

Step 3. Navigate to where you saved the DVD image created in the previous section. Click on the image file, then click the Burn button. Do not drag and drop the image file into Disk Utility during this step.

Step5. Insert a DVD when prompted and proceed to Burn it. (use good quality media)

Using these exact steps I was successfully able to create a personal backup copy of Mac OS X Tiger. I hope this tutorial helps. Enjoy the newfound features in Tiger!

Need help installing MAC Os x 10.63 as a virtual machine on oracle virtual box on win7 host


Upon starting VMware, click on the New Virtual Machine button.A Wizard will open. Click Next.Select Typical. Click Next. (On later versions of VMWare, select Custom instead so that you can set your disk drive to IDEinstead of SCSI, as required below.)Select Other, then pick FreeBSD. Click Next.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE! If you are using a Conroe or Core 2 Duo, select Windows and then Windows NT from the dropdown list. Using FreeBSD will cause a stack fault on boot. Same applies to Core Duo (945PM/Calistoga).

You will likely need to select one [1] Virtual Processor as well. Selecting 2 Virtual Processors will likely cause installation and/or bootup to fail.

  • for Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6: IDE is used instead of SCSI. otherwise the system will not be able to find any installable disk.
  • for Asrock Conroe 945G-DVi: IDE is used instead of SCSI. otherwise the system will not be able to find any installable disk.
  • Dell E1405 and D620 (and maybe other Dell Core Duo laptops): IDE is required instead of SCSI.
  • for Asus P5B-VM IDE is required instead of SCSI, otherwise the system will not be able to find any installable disk.
  • (If you do not see this option, go back to the beginning and choose Custom instead of Typical. You cannot change SCSI to IDE once you have created the VM.)
Name it whatever you want (I used Mac OS X), put it wherever you want. Click Next.
  • Location of virtual harddisk drives can be determined at this point in time. For best performance always try to put virtual machines on a separate physical hard drive. Partitions don't count. This is because the biggest performance hit in virtual machines is disk I/O. If the VM is on the same drive as your OS the VM fights with your OS for disk access. When the OS needs to use a swap file it makes the matter much, much worse. Additionally, today's USB 2.0 and firewire external hard drives run on a fast interface bus, have large buffers and spin at 7,200 rpm, as opposed to 4,200 rpm for most laptop hard drives.


If you are using a non-legal copy you'll want to use Host-only networking initially to prevent Mac OS X from registering itself during installation. If this is a legal copy, use NAT. Click Next.Set the Disk size to anything greater than 6GB. You don't have to but I recommend that you allocate the disk space now so that disk performance is increased. When done, click Next. You may also split files into 2GB pieces if on FAT partition.Click Finish. . . .[edit]Step 4 - ?????[edit]Step 5 - Profit![edit]Step 6 - Setting up your Virtual MachineOpen up your new virtual machine configuration.Under Devices:Double click Memory and set the amount of RAM you'd like to use. The minimum is 128MB but the recommended minimum is 256MB. Make sure you don't use too much of your total RAM as swapping may occur and could lead to big problems! I use 512MB (out of 1GB System) and I have set my Memory Preferences [Edit>Preferences>Memory] to Fit all virtual machine memory into reserved host RAM.Double click the CD-ROM drive and select the letter of the Virtual Drive with the mounted ISO that you created with Alcohol 120%. If you are using Daemon Tools you may not see your drive listed. See the next step for further details.Now EXIT VMware. Here comes the boring part =P[edit]Step 7 - Editing your VMware ConfigLocate where you've stored your Virtual Machine files in Windows Explorer.Mine is ..\My Documents\My Virtual Machines\MacOSX\Open up your Virtual Machine Configuration File (.vmx extension) in Notepad.Add the following line to the end of the file.paevm=true

(note: If your CPU does not support PAE, you can't run OSx86 under VMWare on your CPU; OSx86 needs a PAE compatible CPU to work. Intel Pentium M <1.5GHz do not have PAE, so don't try it on those CPUs)
If you are using Daemon tools you may need to help VMware find the drive. If that is the case then modify the lines in the configuration file referring to the CD-ROM drive similar to this (note replace X: with the drive you have configured in Daemon Tools):ide1:0.present = TRUEide1:0.fileName = X:ide1:0.deviceType = cdrom-rawSave the Config file, close Notepad, and continue to Step 7.

Note: on 10.4.8 8.8.1 kernel and networking: This is a good time to remove existing ethernet0virtualDev (if any) and add:
ethernet0.virtualDev=e1000

Note: sometimes scsi0.present = TRUE won't work, so set it to False:
scsi0.present = FALSE

Note: if you change any settings in the VMware interface after editing the .vmx file, it will overwrite your changes. You will need to go back and change the settings again! It is best to make these edits while VMware is not running.
Here comes the fun part =D[edit]Step 8 - Installing Mac OS XStart your Mac OS X Virtual Machine.When the Mac OS X boot prompt appears, click the logo then hit F8 to add boot options.Type in -v and hit enter. This puts you into Verbose mode which will let you know if something is going wrong.It may take a while depending on your hardware to load the installation. Be patient.

[edit]Step 9 - Setting up your Hard DriveFollowing along in the installation, you'll reach a point where it's time to select your Hard Drive, but nothing is listed.Open Utilities -> Disk Utility on your disk

Note Re 10.4.8: Disk Utility has been reported not to work (it makes an efi partition). Use a prior version to partition your disk, or partition it with another OS, then use 10.4.8 disk utility to erase (by reformatting) this partition. Otherwise it won't boot. Note: no need for using a previous version just apply PPF2 to fix the disk utility http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=38125
Select the VMware drive on the left. Click partition on the right.Change the Volume Scheme to 1 partition and choose a name. The format should stay Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and the partition should use all space available.Click partition, then partition again. After it is finished (progress in bottom right), you can close the Disk Utility.Your drive now shows up in setup. Proceed, proceed.[edit]Step 10 - Using a Custom InstallationIf you have a patched installation you should select a custom installation to see if there are patches listed there that you'll need to include (such as selecting the appropriate patch set for your CPU, see Comment 2). Another place to check is opening up a Terminal window and looking around the installation disc..

Hi am running power pc G5 with Tigar 10.4.11 problem can't launch Disk Utilities Ver 10.5.6 can I reinstall and if so what are the pitfalls


There is an option during the install to keep applications, files, and settings. I would suggest you go that route. I often use that when customers have a corrupt OS and it works very well.

HI I WANT TO INSTALL WINDOW IN MAC WHICH IS MCA OS X 10.4.11 WHEN I TRIED THE MESSAGE APPEARED BOOT CAMPP EXPIRED. I CHECKED ON APPLE SITE IT EXPIRED IN DEC-2007, IS THERE IN WAY THAT STILL I CAN INSTALL...


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.

I want to install mac os 10.5 leapard on my windows xp pro without destroying it how to dual boot please


I'm confused at the question. You will be unable to install Mac OS on a Windows device, but can install Windows on Mac Hardware. If you have a Mac machine you can install in two ways 1.) there is a partition application in utilities that allows you to create a new partition where you can istall windows without ruining current. 2.) if you do not want to partition then you can use VMware or Parallels ( recommended ) emulators to install the OS

No prefrences will launch, can't find right application.


The System Preferences app should reside in the Applications folder. If it does not, then you could do a search for it. Click the Spotlight (magnifying glass) icon on the far right of the menubar, and type in "system preferences". If spotlight can't find it, then you'll probably need to re-install your OS.

Mail doesn't work after upgrading to Leopard OS.


First, remove the Mail icon from the dock. Open up your Applications folder, find the Mail app, drag this into the dock (this automatically puts a link from the dock to the app) and try launching that. 9 times out of 10 this is all thats needed to fix this fairly common problem. Good luck
