I'm trying to service a family Mac Pro and I'm not close at all to an Apple Store. Also, the machine is not under warranty anymore. I think I have a faulty thermal sensor on the northbridge. Its giving 129C readings from a cold boot and I've already cleaned the heatshink and reapplied thermal compound. Running AHT throws an [4SNS/1/40000000: TNOH] error. Resetting the PRAM and NVRAM didn't do anything. I'm not sure if ASD can do any more but its worth a shot right? Does anyone know which version I should look for to use with this 2007 Mac Pro 1.1?
Host: Mac Mini 2006 1,1 OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) 1.66GHz Core Duo; 2 GB 667MHz DDR2 Ethernet connected
Client: Mac Mini 2007 (1,2) OS X 10.7.4 (Lion) 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo; 2.5 GB 667 DDR2 Connected via WiFi
Here's what I've tried: SMB and FTP sharing is disabled on the host. After updating the operating systems on both computers as far as they can be updated, permissions were repaired, new sharing usernames were created, firewalls are disabled on host and client.
In order to install Windows 7 via bootcamp, do you have to use the full version of windows or can you use the upgrade disc to install? I figured I should ask before buying another license as I have an upgrade version of Windows 7 Pro that I don't use. I do own previous versions of Windows (all of them....just like I do Mac OS).
I've been following many threads on Mac Rumors for a while and thought I finally post something (hopefully) useful for others and in hopes that I can get a meaningful answer. So please don't flame me if this may be a newbie question... here I go:
So I have a MacBook Pro 2.2 Ghz Late 2007 computer, equipped with a 500GB WD Scorpio Blue HD and 4Gb of RAM. What I do with this computer primarily is graphic design and editing (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Final Cut Pro, etc...) and some amature music production (Reason, Garageband, Djay...)
I've followed the 6gb/8gb RAM upgrade forum for a long while for Mac products and finally bought myself a 6GB upgrade kit from Other World Computing. My package arrived today, and I hate to admit but I'm afraid to upgrade the RAM because of the slight hit/miss ratio I heard about using it. It's usually a good thing to upgrade to something higher I know, but I read that even if I did upgrade, I would only be using about 3GB worth of memory on it and not the full 6GB. Plus, I would lose the dual channel architecture doing this... if that did make a big difference to my heavy use of RAM.
Just today I learned about ExpressCard SSD's and how they can act like a separate HD in themselves. I'm highly interested in a very economical 64GB ExpressCard I researched. They're super fast and sound like a better alternative to RAM upgrading, especially if I can only use a max of approx. 3GB of RAM on my model computer.
So after all of my gibbering and jabber, here's the question:
From your experienced perspective, what's a better option for me to take...
1) Use the 6GB RAM upgrade?
2) Buy an ExpressCard SSD and use memory intensive programs on that?
3) Use the 6GB RAM and buy the ExpressCard SSD together?
What is left for me to upgrade that will improve my MacBook's (2007 - Intel) speed the most? I have a 2007 MacBook that has the maximum amount of RAM installed already (2 Gig). I've upgraded to OSX 10.7 also.. It's sometimes sluggish when trying to run Office 2011 or Windows XP under VM Ware Fusion?

Just upgraded to OSx Lion 10.7 and find that Quicken 2007 won't open as Lion does not support it. Quicken advises that it does not yet have Quicken for Lion but is working on it. Meantime I am stuck as I use Quicken all the time. I am wondering if it is possible to uninstall Lion using the Snow Leopard install CD. At present, Lion is a disaster and I'd like to get rid of it and go back to Snow Leopard. Apple really screwed up with this one.
I'm bashing my head aganist the keyboard to get this working..I switched from VMWare to Parallels just for this feature..All I want is the following:When having Outlook 2007 open in my Virtual machine in Parallels, and I click a LINK in a email, it opens in Safari on my Host machine.
When downloading the new version to upgrade an old one, is the new one installed on top of the old version, or is it just upgraded? Simply put, should I delete the old version and then install the new, or is this unnecessary? Hard drive space is at a premium, which is why I ask.
New Imacs are great but lack a Esata port or Express card port, 800 FireWire port is too slow compared to Esata. I am willing to upgrade my macbookpro bus 800 only if a new quad version appears. Any news from all the well informed guys?
I currently have Mac OS X 10.3.9 running on a Power Mac G5. I desperately need to get Final Cut Pro 6 installed on this machine, but it won't install unless I upgrade, so I need to know how to upgrade to the highest version I can run on the Power Mac G5. Does Apple have that upgrade online to purchase?
To work with a software packet, I need to uprade Ruby to version 1.9.3. The current Ruby version is 1.8.7. What are the steps for upgrading Ruby to 1.9.3 If the upgrade runs into problems, how can I got back to "last known good state"?
Trying to upgrade from leopard to snow leopard on my macbook, for some reason i think the install did not work (still says it is running on version 10.5.8) i am trying to upgrade to snow leopard so that i can move on to lion.
Question - how do I get started? I currently have Vista loaded on my BootCamp partition. Do I launch Vista, and run the Windows7 upgrade installation from Windows? Or do I do this from BootCamp?Note that this is an upgrade disc, not a full/initial install version.
I'm using an Intel iMac running OS 10.4.11. Obviously the computer is a few years old now and I'm wondering whether it is worth upgrading the system software or time to get a new computer. Can you guys venture any opinions as to which version of OS X I might be able to upgrade to with decent performance? I'd rather not add any memory if that's a requirement for upgrading - in that case I'd probably just opt for a new computer.
