MacBook :: Installation To Case Sensitive Drive Is Not Supported?
Jun 22, 2012
i can't install program adobe my mac os 10.6.8 when i install mac say ' Installation to case sensitive drive is not supported. choose a different drive location to install' all the time i have one drive! i don't understand. How i can install?
So, I just received my iMac and after playing with it for a few weeks I find that I don't like the fact that it was shipped with a case insensitive install. I was hoping I could simple run some command to convert, but there doesn't appear to be any "easy" way to do this. I assume I can simply reinstall and as part of the install format the drive case sensitive.
My questions are as follows: 1) Is a reformat/reinstall my only option (not a problem but I though I would ask) 2) I don't expect Mac OSX to have a problem running in this environment but if someone is aware of any restrictions I would love to hear it. 3) Would this have any effect on my plans to install Windows 7 via bootcamp? (once it's supported that is).
I am working on restoring a Time Machine backup from Leopard to a clean installation of Snow Leopard. The only problem I'm facing is that the Leopard backup is on a case-sensitive drive (and the Snow Leopard drive is set up, by default, as case-ignorant).
I have scoured the Web the last two days and have not found a definitive answer to my question: Is there a way to transfer the data from the Time Machine backup on the case-sensitive drive to the case-ignorant Snow Leopard drive?
Yesterday I ran across a tutorial explaining how this might be accomplished using SuperDuper! but a commenter explained that Disk Utility could be used and was much easier.
I tried the Disk Utility method but it didn't work, and I ran out of time to give the SuperDuper! option a try. Does anyone know if it, or even Carbon Copy Cloner, might solve my problem?
Every unix system that I've worked with has had case-sensitive file names. In other words, file name "foo" is different than "Foo" is different than "FOO" and so on. In the MAC OS X shell,
if I have a file name FOO, and I type "more foo", then the contents of FOO are displayed, instead of an error message saying "foo not found". It also means that I can't really create files "foo" and "FOO".
Is this something that Apple has implemented on top of unix? Is it possible to get around this, so that the names do indeed become case-sensitive? It doesn't seem like an inherent unix thing, because if I type "f <tab>", and the only file in the directory.
My entire I-tunes library is kept on an external HD that is formatted as MAC OS Extended (Case-Sensitive, Journaled). I formatted this external over a year ago when I moved to Mac per the genius's recommendation at the Apple Bar. Today, I had the sneaking suspicion that it was time to migrate to a new External HD as mine has some wear on it and I kept getting weird error messages during the transfer of the I-tunes library (meaning it just stops and give me a very windowesque error message).
What I have been able to tell is that MAC OS Extended (Case-Sensitive, Journaled) will not correctly transfer to regular old MAC OS (Journaled). Am I stuck in "Case-Sensitive" land forever with my I-tunes Library? Apple Care offered no advice except to point out the problem. I can format the new drive as Case-sensitive but then it appears that I'll be stuck with doing the same thing when I get another External HD in the future.
This issue may have been present in Mavericks as well, but I have no first hand experience with Mavericks. I was recently updated to Yosemite at work and this is when my Mighty Mouse (wired, with a scroll wheel button on top, NOT MAGIC MOUSE) started going nuts.
I have my work settings matched exactly to the settings on my Mighty Mouse at home running on Mountain Lion. Horizontal scrolling is not an issue at all, but vertical scrolling is so incredible sensitive. I very slight scroll will send me to the op or bottom of a page in almost all applications. It is extremely annoying in my Adobe apps. I work in Illustrator moots the day and this scrolling issue has killed my production time.
I use my vertical and horizontal scrolling quite a lot in doing my work. The vertical again is fine and seems to match my scrolling at home, but any more than a single click of the scroll wheel since updating to Yosemite will send my cursor off of the artboard, which is sometimes very large. I t has too often centime to the edges of the pasteboard which than takes forever to try to scroll back into position. I simply use the Fit Artboard in Window key command to center my work on screen and then gently scroll to where I need to be.
To set my scrolling speed to slow will correct the vertical scrolling but will make my horizontal scrolling so heavy that I have to resort to using the hand tool to move around in my Illustrator app, which I have employed full-on at this point because it is the only consistent solution I have found.
Many people have suggested that I get rid of the Mighty Mouse and use the Magic Mouse. I have many reasons for not doing this (my 3D work needs a middle button for one), but I have also been reading that these Magic Mouse users are having their own scrolling issues.
I was wanting to know how hard it is to change top and bottom case and keyboard area? I would like to know that if anything was to happen to my soon to have macbook I could change it. Also this on the older macbooks. And if I have Apple to change it how much would it cost? And yes I know that they should replace keyboard case area for free because of the defunct cracking issue.
I bought my Macbook Pro in February or March of 2006 and it's still running strong. The hard drive, however, is full and I'd like to get a new, larger, faster one. I'm aware that I need a SATA drive and that it's form factor should be 2.5". I'm also aware that the max transfer rate for my drive is 1.5 Gb/s, can I use one that is 3.0 Gb/s? I think the current drive is 4200 or 5400 RPM, can I use one that is 7200RPM (this computer is mostly used while on AC power)? What about maximum capacity? Are there any limitations due to BIOS or the motherboard? Here is the drive I'm looking at, please let me know if this will work or if you have a similar, better solution.
Here are some of the specs from my MBP: Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro1,1 Processor Name: Intel Core Duo Processor Speed: 2 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 2 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 667 MHz Boot ROM Version: MBP11.0055.B08 SMC Version (system): 1.2f10
Something reasonably priced, so i can take it safely out in the car with me! Also will be looking for a car charger for it!Decided against getting an iPad coz of the limitations so im gonna get a dongle, looked around & I like the look of TMobile deal of ?40 for 90 days.
Harddrive blew on my macbook and its out of warranty. Can I just buy a harddrive and install it and put in the Mac OSX installation CD and it will be ok. Or is there something fancy formatting i would have to do before installing.
Macbook harddrive crashed (flashing question mark folder etc.). Bought new harddrive (2.5 in SATA), and reinstalled. Don't have original installation DVD so used legally acquired Mac OSX. Now instead of folder, the Apple logo appears with spinning gears but otherwise unresponsive. Can't install or eject DVD.
I just got my new 17" i7 MBP. Installed Intel 80gig SSD for boot and started installing OSX from supplied installer. Installation took over 2 hours with the optical drive making only slight noises every few seconds, not sounding anything like it should. Eventually it installed and everything seems fine and really snappy. Replaced superdrive with newmodus tray and hitachi 500gb drive.
Started installing Final Cut Studio 3. Pointed all audio and extra content to 500 gig drive. Installation of each disc is taking 2+ hours from an external CD/DVD drive hooked up usb 2 for one disk, then tried firewire for the next. Still really slow. What gives? Can't figure this one out. Does it have anything to do with the SSD?
I asked about running Snow Leopard on my mac after a hard drive fail. I'm having issues with formatting a new hard drive in my mac. I have a 2007 black macbook and I'm trying to run a 160gb SATA seagate hard drive. After replacing this hard drive, I booted my mac up from cd, ran through setup fine until I got to the 'select a drive to install to' - the point where my hard drive should be visible. Nothing there at all. Nothing to click on in the box. My question is, is there a process I need to undertake to format the hard drive or is this an indicator of a much bigger problem?
I just got a new aluminum macbook, and the only thing that seems like a problem is the caps lock key is not sensitive like the rest of the keys. I tap it like every other key and it usually takes 2-3 or more times before it changes. Is there really anything to do? I hate to take it back for something so trivial. But I am afraid it will bother me more and more.
My daughter's macbook mouse will "click" when she presses the panel near the trackpad. Anybody have this problem? Recently changed the battery (non-apple), but even using the old battery this still happens.
I have about 50 *.mp3's on my hard drive that have the file names in all upper case. When looking at them in itunes it drives me nuts....Is there a way to convert the uppercase file name to lowercase? I have googled but can't find anything. I do not want to do it manually, that would take a long time =( thanks, I'm crossing my fingers
I have a Mid 2010 MacBook Pro with (upgraded) 8Gb ram and the original Toshiba 320GB, 5400rpm, 8mb, 2.5" SATA Hard drive, running Lion (upgraded through App store from Snow Leopard). I'm looking at getting a new Seagate Momentus XT 750GB, 7200rpm, 32mb, 2.5" with 8GB SSD built-in. I am fine with the hardware installation, though when I turn it on, as my original OS X was Snow Leopard, would I have to install that, then install Lion over it? Or is there an easier way of just installing Lion onto my new hard drive?
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2), 8GB RAM, Lion OSX.
I have OS X Lion. I recently purchased this Macbook Pro 15" laptop, and I am planning on returning it, to get the newer upgraded laptop, as the store manager said I can do this, since I purchased my laptop within 30 days of the announcement of a new MacBook Pro. I would like to format everything, before I return it back to the store, however, it never came with an installation cd. How can I do this? I have tried ways that I have heard, such as creating a new admin user account and deleting all the other accounts. Also I have erased all the free space using the disk utility section. However, it will not allow me to erase the hard drive. Is there a way to do this without an installation cd?
Info:MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
If I pull on my headphones while they're plugged into my unibody any more than .5mm the sound goes back to the Macbook speakers. Are anybody else's headphones this sensitive? I really don't even have to pull on the headphones. The headphone jack doesn't securely hold the cord.
I've been using my mum's MPB C2D quite a bit, in anticipation of my own i5 arriving, and one thing that gets on my nerves is the ambient light sensor. It seems to be really sensitive, to the point where it will change the screen brightness when there has been no real changes in ambient light. If you move your hand over the sensor at the top of the screen, or even if someone walks past and casts a shadow it can change for a few seconds. Also, just moving the laptop around and the sensor changes the screen.
Obviously this setting can be turned off, but I'd like the feature if it wasn't so sensitive. Other than that, I love the MBP and can't wait for mine!
After years of faithful sevice, my MacBook Pro has recently taken to registering clicks as double or even triple clicks, and I have to try several times to get the single click I want. Actually, it's become so sensitive that it only takes a light touch (less than needed for the button to click) to think that it's being clicked. I assume this is a hardware issue. Do I need to take my computer apart to solve it?
I recently installed a Pioneer DVR-112D in my PowerMac G5 (10.3.9) after my original optical drive stopped reading DVDs. This new drive now reads previously burned CDs and DVDs just fine, but gives me the following message when trying to burn blank CDs and DVDs: The disc could not be used because the disc drive is not supported. Error code 0x80020025.
I am trying to back-up my computer to my external hard drive and a box is popping up saying "You can't open the application WD Backup.app because PowerPC applications are no longer supported." What does this mean? I have updated my system to Lion since my last back-up. What do I need to do?
I've had my Macbook Pro since mid 2009. It's been great, never had any real problems. Then in about October, I noticed one side of my trackpad wasn't offering as much resistance as it was before. I just ignored it, didn't mind too much. But it progressively got worse, and eventually got so sensitive that I couldn't even scroll without it clicking when I didn't want it too.I was pretty upset, called apple, they told me to send it in and fixed it for free. It was all very nice, orderly, and quick. So I was satisfied.But, lo and behold, it's at it again. I can't believe it. It hasn't gotten so sensitive that I can't use it yet, but I'm very upset right now. I have no idea why it's doing this. It's not really overheating, I have never dropped or hit my macbook. I'm the only one who uses it. I don't abuse it at all.
