OS X :: 64bit Mode Snow Leopard - Computer Always Boot Into 64-bit Mode If This Is Done Once?

Aug 28, 2009

I did a bit of reading on the internet, and it looks like most computers will not boot into 32-bit mode by default with 10.6. It appears that if while booting the user holds the 6 and 4 keys, the computer will boot into 64-bit mode.

Does anyone know anything about this? Will the computer always boot into 64-bit mode if this is done once? Will it even make a difference? Will the average user want to do this?

Intel Mac :: Computer Just Freezes - Select What Drivers Want On Boot When Starting In Regular Mode?

Apr 19, 2012

It's a 2.16 intel Core 2 duo with the ATI Radeon X1600 128MB video and I'm running OSX 10.7.3. It started happening on Snow leopard so I thought maybe upgrading to Lion would fix it but it has continued exactly the same. I've had an issue for a while now where the computer would just freeze all of a sudden. It happened after a few days at times while sometimes it happen right after a reboot.  

Here are the things I've tried. 

1. I upgraded to lion

2. I replaced the ram

3. Look at the crash log but found nothing

4. Ram mem check utility but it found nothing 

I can boot the computer in safe mode by holding the shift key and it works perfect with no freezing but I loose audio support becuase I think it's not loading the audio drivers. Question is: Can I select what drivers I want on boot when starting in regular mode not safe mode in order to try to disable drivers until I find the issue? Is there anyplace else that I can find which driver caused the computer to freeze after a freeze/crash? If I can ID the driver is there a way to update/replace the driver if it doesn't come up in "software update"? I'm thinking it's the video driver becuase I would occationally get some weird things happening on the screen that I attributed to an older display.

IMac :: To Capable Of Running Photoshop CS5 In 64bit Mode?

Apr 18, 2010

I have a white 24" iMac with a Core2 Duo processor, running Snow Leopard 10.6.3.

The new Photoshop CS5 extended software can run on 64-bit.

I know it also depends on the processor's firmware. Will my iMac be able to run Photoshop CS5 (comes out June 30th 2010) in 64-bit mode?

OS X :: Snow Leopard 32bit Versus 64bit Kernel - How To Boot It / Finding Supported Hardware

Aug 27, 2009

So, with Snow Leopard, there is a 32-bit kernel, and a 64-bit kernel. Correct?

As I understand it, it will boot into the 32-bit kernel by default, but if your hardware is supported, you can select the 64-bit kernel.

My question is - where is the list of supported hardware, and how do you select the 64-bit kernel?

My confusion comes from several posts and various articles which all say the first-gen aluminium iMac has a 32-bit EFI, and therefore can only boot into the 32-bit kernel. But I've just downloaded an app called Startup Mode Selector, which shows you your system config, and it says I have a 64-bit EFI.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Can't Boot By Firewire Target Disk Mode Etc

May 5, 2012

I have a bit of a problem: I cant access my Mac because I lost the password. I recently changed my passwords on several macs, including an old PPC PowerMac G5 from ca 2005. I run 10.5.8 on this and it works flawlessly. I need to use this machine for important work.   

So this is what I have tried so far: 

1) Tested with all known passwords I have used in the past.

2) Tried to boot from a 10.6 install DVD

3) Tried to boot from just C and later Command C

4) Tried a different install DVD 10.4  (I dont have the original 10.5 DVD)

5) Tried to use T and Target Disk Mode from an iMac with Lion. (disconnected all other FW disks etc.)

6) Tried different Firewire cables

7) Tried different Firewire connections. 

It starts obediently and show every sign of Mac-Happiness. But I simply can't get the darn thing to boot. I think it normally should have booted using 10.6?

OS X :: Switch Snow Leopard To 32 Bit Mode?

May 11, 2010

I'm having some problems with Snow Leopard, in 64 bit mode. Is there a way to turn it to 32 bit ? I'm using a Mac mini 2.53 GHz Core 2 Duo with 4 GB (the max it will ever have), so I don't think it needs 64 bit.

Is there any advantage/disadvantage to run in 32 bit, if you just have 4 GB of ram ?

OS X :: How To Get Sleep Mode In Snow Leopard

Sep 18, 2009

Sleep Mode does not seem to be working automatically in Snow Leopard. It sleeps when activated from the Apple Menu but not when set to sleep in Energy Saver Preference Pane. The screen dims, goes black but the computer does not seem to sleep nor does the hard drive spin down. Anyone else having a problem like this? It was working fine in Leopard (just noticed this problem now, but have had Snow Leopard installed for a couple of weeks and never noticed it)

OS X :: Snow Leopard Slow Performance In 64-bit Mode

Sep 19, 2009

Not sure why, but when I run my SL in 64 bit it runs significantly slow when compared to 32-bit on my umbp late 2008 2.4 ghz, 4gb ram and 500gb hdd. when running on 32-bit, my umbp boots in less than 15 sec and loading the native apps are very snappy and responsive (safari/finder/preview, etc). But when I boot in 64-bit. It takes like 45 sec to boot (it keeps spinning the white circle during the boot up) and even loading safari and rendering the default page will take like couple of secs which is noticeably slow and opening pdf in preview is slow and scrolling the pdf is noticeably slow and sometimes hangs and which does not happen in 32-bit mode.

If I click on application folder on the doc, it opens the folder before I release the mouse button in 32-bit mode, but in 64-bit, it takes upto 5 sec to open the folder. I tried this couple of times including rebooting the umbp. It is not crashing in 64 bit, but it is noticeably slow. Which is making me depressed because I was thinking to upgrade this laptop to 6gb ram. Now I am not sure if i want to upgrade.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Starting Up In Safe Mode?

Jun 19, 2012

Restarted macbook in safe mode (i just pressed shift upon startup and logged in) to correct the resolution for my display settings that were affected earlier today when connecting to an overhead projector. The resolution is back to normal, but now everything is delayed. Moving between windows, opening word, opening an email, is all slow and delayed. This computer has never been this slow.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: After Going On 'single-user Mode' It Won't Turn On

Mar 6, 2012

I got a Macbook with OS X. I was too impatient to get the administrator name and password from the previous owner (BIG MISTAKE).I thought I'd follow the instructions from "How To Create A New Administrator Account" (url..) as they seemed easy and straight forward.

I followed the first step of the process and got into single-user mode (black screen white text).I saw that black screen with white text and thought, "Woah man, I'm out my my depth. My brother typed 'help' in order to find out how to exit single-user mode, he said that's how it's done on windows? (I also have limited knowledge about Windows). I typed in various things such as 'reboot' in an attempt to exit. Eventually the battery died. I turned the Macbook back on and the grey screen with the apple logo with the spinning wheel appeared. The spinning wheel span and span but the computer will not start up.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mount Device Via USB In Single User Mode

Jul 4, 2012

My macbook pro appeared to be crashed with harddisk problem at start time.. unable to boot to normal login screen. When I run in single user mode, I dont seem to see my thumbdrive, or external device.

I connected them via the USB ports on my Macbook pro (17")(Snow Leopard) I checked /dev/disk* and saw only disk0 (disk0, disk0s1, disk0s2, disk0s3). I never get to see disk1 no matter what I tried. (I've various MSDOs format, or NTFS format disks).

I followed the advise here: [URL] Am I supposed to be able to see the drive the moment I connect it to the port?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Firewall In Stealth Mode But Responding To Ping Requests?

Apr 19, 2010

I've just tried running the security test on the Shields Up! site, and I note that even though my firewall is in stealth mode (and Shields Up! reported that all the ports it probed were stealthed), it failed the test because it replied to an ICMP ping request - and yet the Snow Leopard firewall specifically states that when it's in stealth mode, it won't respond to such requests.

Hardware :: Wacom Bamboo Pen/Mouse Mode Resets To Pen Mode After Restart?

Jan 11, 2010

I have been using a Wacom Bamboo for a while now and always have it in Mouse mode.

Since I upgraded my iMac to SnowLeopard, the Bamboo Pen/Mouse mode always resets back to Pen Mode after I have booted my iMac which is verrrry annoying - especially since I have a dual-monitor setup!

I have already tried to install the latest drivers for the Bamboo but this has not resolved my problem.

Has anyone else seen this problem and possibly know how to solve it?

OS X :: Won't Work With Kernal Panic / No Safe Mode And Target Disk Mode

Jul 6, 2010

I have a 15" mbp with 10.6 Intel core duo, 4gb ram with a boot camp and ubuntu partition through parallels. The other day I was installing xcode from apple's website, which failed 3 times after downloading saying the package couldn't be expanded. I left my computer for a while and came back where i then had to log in again. it rejected my password numerous time (i'm positive it was correct). when i restarted my computer i got a kernal panic screen when the apple logo came up. it told me to restart the computer which i did. didn't work. i restarted with the osx cd to use the disk utility. when it checked the drive it found a bunch of errors, which i then tried to correct. it went for a couple minutes then told me they couldn't be fixed and i should try to back up my data and reinstall osx. i don't know how to back up my hard drive when i can't log into my account. i've tried to boot in target disk mode and copy some files that way, but the only disk the other computer sees is my windows partition- no mac partition.

i've also tried these, none of these have worked: restarting in safe mode resetting the ram and pram booting with different sticks of ram all result in a kernal panic.

my windows partition still works fine though (as much as i hate to say it) the only things I really care about on my computer are my files from school and my itunes library. is there any way i can get these files off my computer?
