OS X :: 10.4 Not Mounting - Powers Up - Not Complete Start Up Sequence

Apr 12, 2009

Problem: powers up, will not complete start up sequence What led to the problem: Ignorance, mostly. CD was stuck in vertical bay and I tried someone's suggestion to eject via terminal. If you are laughing (and/or groaning), you know what must have happened. Here are steps taken to rectify disk eject and start up problems, with the results. Note: iMac install disk one remains in the vertical bay, unable to be read or ejected. applejack, fsck -fy ... multiple times. Results: disk & permissions repaired and/or verified but OSX still will not start up. It starts with grey screen, goes to blue with grey window. Progress bar moves slowly from left to right and seems to reach 100%. Operation stalls at that point. Note: Any attempt to use diskutil stalls and commands such as list, mount do not execute. drutil eject gave these results: dyld library not loaded: /system/library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework/versions/A/openGL referenced from: /system/library/frameworks/QuartzCore.framework/versions/A/Quartzcore reason: image not foundTrace/BPT trap

Intel Mac :: Powers Down Before Boot Up Is Complete?

Jun 8, 2012

After a forced power down my iMAC won't boot again.

The machine simply powers off after the spinning gear on the gray start up screen spins for a few seconds. 

I've tried booting in safe mode, doing a PRAM reset and inserting the Installer DVD but I don't even get to any of these steps and the machine turns off.

OS X :: Boot Camp Screwed Up Start Up Sequence?

Apr 4, 2009

I tried installing Windows XP on to my MacBook running Leopard last November using an XP installment disk that came with a Dell Desktop. So that worked out well, until Boot Camp told me to print out an instruction sheet. Well, I don't have a printer connected to my MacBook, so I continued the installation without it.

The installation apparently 'finished' so I clicked "finish" but the whole installation process went back to the beginning, so I had to force quit the installation (my MacBook was running from just the disk, not 'Macintosh HD'). By the way, I went through the installation process a couple of times before I thought "this is just keep on repeating."

Well, whenever I go to boot up my MacBook now, a message comes up in a black background with white writing saying "No bootable disk, press any key to continue." Pressing any key doesn't work, so I have to hold down the power button (which I hate doing since it's apparently bad for the HDD) to turn it off, and I now have to hold down the alt/option key whenever I start up my Mac. By the way, the only disk that comes up is 'Macintosh HD', not the 'Windows HD' I partitioned earlier, which I have now deleted. My question is, what else can I do to completely erase this message I get at the start up?

MacBook Pro :: Only Powers On When Upside And Almost Closed

Nov 3, 2010

I have an older MBP (1.83 Intel Core Duo) When I push the power button, I hear a little electric noise, then a fizzle noise. It won't turn on. However, if I close it almost all the way and turn it upside down, it powers up fine. Once it's running, no issues. Any idea where to start with trying to correct this problem? I don't know what part could be making this happen. And yes, it has to be both upside down and almost totally closed.

Mac Mini :: Powers Up But No Chime Or Video?

Nov 8, 2009

I have an '07 vintage (DVI) Mac Mini I use as a media center. I haven't used it in a few months & its been shut down during that time. I went to start it up today & the power light went on & I could hear the fan start up but no start-up chime & no video.

I did an PMU reset to no avail. I'm thinking the logic board is done (it's under warranty & I have an appt. with a "genius" tomorrow). Just wondering if there is anything else I should try before I bring it in.

Mac Mini :: Powers Off Before Boot Completes?

Nov 9, 2009

My Mini powers itself down before it finishes booting.

It's a 1.25Ghz G4 Mini, so it's a few years old. As of the last few days the computer turns itself off. So I push the power button and I get as far as the grey screen and I see the circle logo rotate and I can hear the disk heads seeking if I place my ear near the Mini. But before the OS boots, while the screen is still grey the Mini powers off. It does this with the recovery DVD in the drive too. Either way it never boots

Is there a way to diagnose this?

Mac Mini :: Core Duo 2 Powers On For 3 Seconds Then Turns Off

Dec 4, 2009

My first mini has a problem. It will power on with the light and then promptly turn off in about 3 seconds. The hard drive spins up but the fan does not turn on. No image on the screen or anything. the mini is open for diagnosis and will do the same thing if the CPU is not installed. Interesting question what will a mini do when it is powered on but doesn't have its CPU installed?

MacBook Pro :: Retina Mid 2012 - Powers Off While Sleeping

Aug 29, 2014

I have a recently-purchased MBP Retina 15 inch from Mid 2012. 

Every time that I put my laptop laptop to sleep while it is on battery, it sleeps fine for about an hour.  After an hour or so, I hear the boot sound come from the laptop.  When I open the screen at that point, the laptop is powered off.  I have to power up the laptop.  The laptop is not in hibernate mode, but has actually shut down (pressing other keys on the keyboard doesn't wake it up, I have to use the power button).   

Applications start back up when I log in, however for example VMWare has rudely powered off (so I lose the state of my virtual machines), and any terminal programs that I was running (even if I just had a document open in 'vi') are also terminated. 

I wonder, what causes this behavior?  Is my system defective in some way, or is there an OS tweak in Mavericks to stop the computer from rudely powering off/force quitting all open apps in the process? 

I've read that OS X now likes to hibernate laptops after an hour, but clearly hibernation isn't what's happening here.

IMac (Intel) :: Powers Down While Starting In Safe Boot Mode Running OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

Sep 9, 2014

My 2014 21" iMac powers itself down after about 10 seconds while trying to startup in safe boot mode. I'm not even sure why it is trying to start in safe boot mode. I shut it down after a power outage while plugged into an APS UPS. I'm guessing that since I interrupted the auto shutdown it is restarting in safe boot mode. Either way, I get a grey screen with a big apple and a progress bar. The progress bar gets to about a tenth full and the power just shuts off. 

I've tried starting up while holding the alt key to select the Macintosh HD. The same thing happens.

OS X :: Mac Mail 3.5 Deleting Emails Sequence?

Mar 2, 2009

I am using a new 24 inch IMac. I just decided to use mail 3.5 vice thunderbird and have had a number of issues (To me, the program seems incredibly buggy which shocks me)...I have been able to work through most but here is a minor annoyance I cant seem to figure out...

When I delete an email from a list of emails, I want the next email that is highlighted to be the one that is the next one down, not the one that is the next one up. How do you establish this preference?

Intel Mac :: Is There A Recover Key Sequence Like Cntl-Alt-Del

Apr 4, 2012

There are times when my iMac locks up (like just now while I had iTunes playing and I looked at my calendar and clicked to see what invitation was pending).  All the input devices locked up (mouse, trackpad) and so the only thing that would have been left was a hot key sequence (if one exists) to recover from the lockup.  Is there one?

Final Cut Studio :: HDV Sequence Settings?

Jun 2, 2014

I've been using FCP 7 for a few years and have just now discovered a problem I can't seem to solve. I have some archive material that I originally injested from HDV tape to HDV 1080 50i 1440 x 1080 and the clip info shows this to be correct. I set up a sequence and and clicked all the settings to match this and no matter what I do, I keep getting either a red render line or a green render line. I'm not entirely sure whether it should be set up for HDTV or just HD in settings, but setting HDTV cause the red render line to appear. Upper field is chosen and 48Khz for sound.

Mac Pro :: The Correct Sequence To Setup RAID Arrays?

Jul 19, 2010

Yesterday I bought a new Mac Pro. I absolutely LOVE it, and don't care if they replace it tomorrow. It is a terrific machine. I do want to set up two sepeate RAID arrays inside it, and could use a little help, as I've never done this before. I want to set up one array, of two large (say 1TB) drives in mirrored (RAID 1?) format for all my data. I want to set up another of two smaller (300GB) WD Velociraptor drives, which I already own, in striped (RAID 0?) format for the operating system, and my applications, as well as a bootcamp partition.

This is where it gets complicated for me. Much of my data is on one of the velociraptor drives in another computer. My question is, can I install the two new 1TB drives, set them up as RAID 1, using the original drive that came in the Mac Pro, move my data over from the old computer, then install the velociraptors, set up that RAID 0 array, and install the operating system. In other words, will the "new" operating system recognize the data raid array that I had created with the "old" operating system?

An easier question. When setting up the operating system on what will be my new RAID 0 array, do I just boot from the CD? and secondly, do I first set up the striped raid, and then install the operating system, and then the bootcamp partition? Or is there a different sequence to use.OK finally, when booting into windows through bootcamp, will windows be able to see the seperate data RAID array?l

ITunes :: New IPad Sync Sequence Now No Music

Jun 24, 2012

A good friend of mine had over 1500 songs ripped from CD on my MacBook. In a hurry before a trip she purchased a new iPhone and new iPad and in the syncing to get Address book and calendar and photos synced up a big change happened on the laptop. All the music appears to be gone.Exclamation points in iTunes and practically nothing in the iTunes Music folder. The macbook is running 10.5.8.I have tried search on the laptop... I cannot see the files. I have tried mounting the macbook as target disk and using Data Recue 3 in demo mode to see if I can "see" the files they do not show up. Somehow iTunes knew they were there before so it lists the songs with the exclamation point and given the huge unused space on the macbook disk it sure seems like the files should be there.

Unfortunately, my friend only has her original CDs as backup.How can I recover the files which were on that disk? The iPad and iPhone are on the road and we think the music got removed from them as well.

Final Cut Studio :: Why Can't Export Sequence Using Compressor 3.0.5

Aug 23, 2014

why I can't export my FCP 6 sequence using Compressor 3.0.5.   

I have an hour-long 1080p Pro Res 422 sequence that I am trying to export using Compressor 3.  Whether I export using the 'Pro Res 422' preset or the 'H.264' preset, transcoding commences but then stops abruptly 15 to 20 minutes later with an error message saying 'Quicktime Error: -50.'

For what it's worth, I have an early-2008 dual quad-core Mac Pro desktop with 6 GB of RAM and two ATI Radeon 5770 graphics cards.  I am currently running OS X 10.6.8.  The media (including Motion graphics) and project file are on an external drive connected via Firewire 800.

how to properly export this sequence at the highest quality without getting the error message

OS X :: Network Keeps Dropping Internet Signals / Happens Randomly In No Sequence

Apr 9, 2009

My problem is I keep loosing 'Internet' signal on my network, the network still runs fine and all computers (macbook, imac and macbook pro) are still connected to the network and can still transfer files but there is no internet connection. Im not 100% sure but this seems to happen once more than one computer is on the network at once. It happens randomly and their seems to be no real sequence or pattern as to when it happens.

I was adviced to change the ports on my router from 11 to say 6 or others, this didnt seem to help, and i have since thought as my imac is hard wired with an ethernet cable this wouldn't effect this computer as it is not connected over wireless but this computer IS still affected.

I have tried numerous hard resets and fimrware updates etc but no joy, the router i'm using is a Belkin URL
