How to set Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) to run in 64-bit mode


There are two ways to set Mac OS X Snow Leopard to run in 64-bit mode.
The first way is quite simple: you just have to hold down "6" and "4" keys while the system is booting up.
The second way is simple as well. You only have to search for a file named "com.apple.Boot.plist" in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration. Open it with Text Editor and edit line 9: where it reads "<string></string>", change to "<string>arch=x86_64</string>". Without quotes, of course.
Using the second way, Mac OS X Snow Leopard will boot in 64-bit mode whenever you turn on your computer.
PS: 64-bit mode is available just in some machines like MacBook Pro and Mac Pro. To check if your Mac supports 64-bit mode, write the following command in Terminal, again without quotes: "ioreg -l -p IODeviceTree | grep firmware-abi". You will get the answer "firmware-abi" = <"EFI64"> if your system can run in 64-bit mode or "firmware-abi" = <"EFI32"> if not.

Hi, Went to the Mac store to upgrade to Snow Leopard and was told my OS was "way too Old to upgrade to Snow Leopard!" Sorry, I'm a numbskull when it comes to these things. Figured as long as...


Apple recommends that if you wish to go from 10.4 to 10.6 then you should purchase the 10.6 Box Set.

System Requirements to run Snow Leopard:
  • Mac computer with an Intel processor
  • 1GB of memory
  • 5GB of available disk space
  • DVD drive for installation
Snow Leopard Installation Instructions:
  1. Just insert the DVD in the optical drive.
  2. Restart your Mac while holding down the C key.
  3. You will be guided through the installation procedure and be prompted at one point to choose which install option you want.
  4. Once the Snow Leopard install is completed the Mac will restart itself.
  5. You will probably be asked to register with Apple upon restart.
  6. Enjoy Snow Leopard on your Mac!
Q: Can I upgrade directly from Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)?

A: Yes. Apple recommends purchasing the Mac Boxed Set for this purpose, which will also update iLife (it is unknown at the time of this writing whether older versions of iLife work with Snow Leopard) and iWork. Also note that while it has been said that the $29 upgrade will work with 10.4, it is not officially supported and may be in violation of the licensing terms.

Q: What happened to the different install options? Can't I do an Archive & Install?

A: Apple has revamped the familiar installation options for Mac OS X. You now have two choices, either a straight upgrade or a clean install. Supposedly if you choose to do a straight upgrade, what actually goes on behind the scenes is what was traditionally known as an Archive & Install.

Q: Is there anything I can do to better prepare myself for the upgrade?

A: Yes. It is advisable to run a Verify/Repair Permissions and Verify/Repair Disk in Disk Utility. You may also want to run the maintenance tasks in Onyx. And finally, it would be wise to get your applications up to date using a program like AppFresh.

I cannot find a Canoscan N1220Udriver for Mac OS


Canon has indicated that N1220U will not be supported under Mac OS X 10.6.x (Snow Leopard). The only practical way to continue using the scanner under Snow Leopard is to buy the third party scanner software, VueScan (US$39.99).

Need driver for Apple Snow Leopard with spc210


Ricoh directs all users to Apple to review this link (below)to determine if their Ricoh printer meets Snow Leopard compatibility.

Ricoh Printers Supported for Mac OS X v10.6

If you find that your printer is on the supported list,
then you can download the driver software for Snow Leopard on the Apple Support site.

Here is the Apple Support Link:
Ricoh Printer Drivers for Mac OS X v10.6

If you do not find your printer is supported, then unfortunately this driver download will not work for your printer in Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
