Mac Pro :: Unable To Find A Way To Download Mavericks To Do Fresh Install

Dec 1, 2014

I have a MacPro 2009 with OS X 10.9.5 installed.  I just added a PCI-e card with a SSD on it. Can I install a fresh copy of OS X 10.9.5 on the SSD and use it as a boot drive too?  I plan on using my MacPro for audio production and the requirements are quite stringent to be able to provide good performance.  So, my hope is that I can boot to my existing HD while using Office, Safari, etc but when I want to use it for audio production be able to boot to the SSD and have nothing on it except my audio software (Cubase, Wavelab, & associated plug-ins) on the working system.  I also plan on upgrading to Yosemite for my "regular" HD boot drive but leaving Mavericks on the SSD for the time being as the audio production software is not yet compatible with Yosemite. 

I don't want to just move from my existing HD to the new SSD as I don't want all the associated software to be copied over as well. Just a clean install of Mavericks on the extra internal SSD. There is nothing on the SSD at this time. Only initialized. I believe I can use a keyboard short-cut on boot to tell which drive to boot from but I have not been able to find a way to download Mavericks to do a fresh install of it on the new SSD.

OS X Mavericks :: Where To Find A Download Of Base 10.9 Install

Sep 6, 2014

Because of software compatibility limitations (see Avid Media Composer), I need to find a download of the base Mavericks install, so the first 10.9 install. Avid will only support up to 10.9.2, so I'd like to install 10.9 and then take it up to .2.I can find the 9.2 combo updates, but not the base install.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Do Fresh 10.5 Install With Retail Leopard Disc

Jun 24, 2009

I'm sending my 13" MBP in to Apple to have a minor mechanical issue repaired and so I'm installing a fresh copy of 10.5 just for security reasons. Yeah I know, paranoid maybe, but whatever. I have a time machine backup so it's really no sweat off my back. In any case, I thought I'd just use my retail 10.5 disc, but it gave me a bunch of grief. When the computer would boot up with the disc it would just go to a gray screen and sit there.

You'd hear the CD spin up and then stop and it just sat at the gray screen. I tried holding down 'option' before the full boot and it found the CD, but when you clicked it it would just freeze. I just put in the Leopard install disc that came with the computer and it's installing just fine. I guess I'm not too worried since I have the disc that came with the computer and I'll be getting Snow Leopard as well, but it'd be nice to know my retail 10.5 disc would work regardless.

Jul 29, 2009

some time ago, I accidently deleted firefox off my desktop and have been unable to download it from the net since.It is an older ibook G4 I have,maybe this has something to do with it?But I did have firefox before so surely this is not the reason.What happenned first was I would download it,put into applications and drag below which seemed to work fine, until I clicked on it and it dissappeared?Could'nt figure it out..?
So I kept trying and trying and the same thing..Now when I go to download it,It saves as dmg?but fails to open saying it (failed to mount)?It doesn't even have the firefox symbol?
Does anyone know what is wrong and why can I not get firefox back on my desktop.I have another browser Opera which is fine, but I need firefox specificly for working on my website.If anyone might have any answers why this is not working I would really appreciate it.Its Mac os x version:10.3.9

OS X Mavericks :: Can't Install It Via USB Or Default Download

Sep 10, 2014

Decided to install Mavericks onto my 13' Macbook Pro, which is currently at Lion right now. First tried the default download and restart to run, but ran into the problem of it saying, when trying to install OS X, "There is not enough space on this disk". I was trying to install on Macintosh HD, which had 372 gigs free.. 

The other two options had the same message, being titled "OS X Install ESD" and "disk0s1". After tearing my hair out at how incredibly non-user friendly this was, I tried the USB method, following a guide to correctly put Mavericks on a 8gig USB. Same issue, though said to try and customize it, or something. a simple download and install method doesnt work for this sort of thing. Why would t be saying 370+ gigs is not enough to install?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Fresh Install Leaves Locked Folder At Top Level (Mac OS X Install Data)?

Jun 5, 2012

I jsut did a fresh install.  wanted to use my SL DVD but the MBP i5 refused to star with it so I used the original DVD (10.5) and upgraded with the SL DVD to 10.6.  However after the initial SL Installation, it tried from the SL DVD and this failed.  I did a manual restart, starting from the HD and everything ran fine.  however today I note there is a locked file on the HD named Mac OS X Install Data.  It contains 181 .pkg files.Now I suppose this should have been moved or deleted as part of the install process.  Can I move them to a file where they belong?

OS X Mavericks :: Unable To Find Emails In Mailbox Stored

Jul 1, 2014

I am running Mavericks 10.9.3 on my iMac and recently had to have the Genius Bar completely reset my system due to issues with performance since the upgrade. I was primarily using Backblaze to back up my entire operating system. I am now trying to restore "Mailboxes on My Mac"in Mail. I was able to get the actual names of mailboxes back via going to my library in the back up and moving all folders to my current library, however it only restored the mailboxes themselves. There are no emails that were but should have been included.

OS X :: Unable To Install Safari 4.0.3 / Downloads Launch New Empty Tab Rather Than Actual Download

Aug 28, 2009

I didn't expect to have compatibility issues with this combination, but I am stuck. I was experiencing some small problems with Safari after upgrading: downloads would launch a new empty tab rather than an actual download, and I would get graphical glitches loading pages from top tabs - so I uninstalled Safari and downloaded a new copy. However, on re-installing, I get a message informing me that I need at least MacOS 10.5.8 installed...

Has anyone else found this? I did an upgrade install of Snow Leopard, and other than a few 3rd party apps being caught out, all is well, and I am enjoying an otherwise noticeably nippier system. As Safari was working previously (unsurprisingly), perhaps this problem stems from an OS compatibility flag within the Safari installer itself, similar to that found in 1Password recently, that could be altered within the installer package to allow installation - But I am guessing, and I don't see why I am having this issue in the first place given the amount of testing of Safari leading up to Snow Leopard.

OS X :: How Often Do You Have To Do A Fresh Install?

Aug 22, 2009

I'm currently a Windows user and I'm researching for buying a Mac (I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy it).

My question is how often do you have to do a fresh install, if at all? I do a fresh install every couple of months on my Windows desktop to keep things speedy. i also defrag every 2 weeks. Do you all do this with OS X?

My other question is how often do you reboot or shutdown? I reboot my desktop maybe 3 times a week and the rest of the time its in sleep when I'm not using it.

OS X :: How To Do A Fresh Install On A MAC?

Nov 25, 2009

i just got a used mac g5 dual with no hard drive, thus no os.

I bought a sata drive, used macdrive on my pc to format it to hsf extended. installed it in the mac tower.

put in my osx 10.4 install disk (after holding down mouse button at startup), and i'm looking at - not an install screen - but a screen with a folder icon in the midle that flashes the mac finder icon.

i'm guessing the disk is not being seen for the install.

i tried pressing 'c' at startup, i get a gray screen for a moment and then it goes to the folder screen again.

my question is: how do i do a fresh install on a mac? do i need a certain os version to start from scratch?

Mac Pro :: Fresh Install Nvidia GTX 285?

Aug 2, 2009

I just replaced my boot drive, only to realize that I am not even able to boot to the OSX install disk with the GTX 285 installed... I had the same symptom when I first got the card, because you have to install the evga drivers prior to installing the card.

So... the question... is there anyway to do a fresh OSX install with the GTX 285 installed, ther than putting a card Apple supports?

MacBook Pro :: Reformatting To Do Fresh Install Of OS X

Oct 9, 2010

So yesterday I decided to reformat my new MBP. I had it dual booting with Win7 and I just didn't like how hot my MBP got so I got rid of it. So I decided to reformat and pop in a fresh install of OSX, but I'm not sure if I reinstalled it properly. The reason why I say this is cause traditionally when reformatting my previous macs I would just follow the steps of the CD where then formatting the drive option was part of the step if I remember correctly. This time after putting in the OSX cd once it reboot.

I had to go to the utilities option select my drive to format or it would just reinstall the OS over top what was already there. After installing I noticed I had to rename my drive as well cause it was unknown. I never had to rename my drive before, so I'm not sure if I did this properly. So did I correctly format my MBP? Is there another way to do this to bring it back to exact factory specs? If not can someone let me know how to properly format my MBP?

OS X :: Leopard Upgrade Or Fresh Install?

Dec 22, 2008

considering upgrading to Leopard over the holiday weekend. I have quite a few programs already installed in 10.4 so I'm considering an upgrade. Coming from the Windows world recently, a fresh install was always better. What about OS X, same thing?

Also, can you load the install disk/image onto a USB stick, boot from it and install from it? Is that easy/possible?
