OS X :: Can't Delete Second Parition In Macbook

Sep 28, 2008

Hi, I'm really new to Mac and the OS X software as I've been using Microsoft my whole life but got fed up with the constant instability of Windows XP and Vista but in some cases I needed to open .exe files so I recently tried installing Windows XP onto my mac book with Boot Camp and I accidentally chose the NTFS file instead so I could not use the Dual boot setup. I reformatted my mac book afterward with the disks that came with the mac book however I had to choose one among the two partitions. When I finished setting up, I tried using boot camp to delete the other partition but an error message came up: "The setup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended "Journaled" volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows." So I reformatted the second partition into OS X as well and the same message shows up. I just want to change it back into one partition instead of two.

MacBook Air :: Good Bootcamp XP Parition Size?

Nov 5, 2008

Anyone have any recommendations for a good Bootcamp WinXP partition size for my 1.86/128SSD MBA? I was thinking around 20GB should be sufficient, I will spend most of the time in OSX. Also, should I format in FAT32 or NTFS?

OS X :: Windows Parition Wouldn't Start Up While Loading?

Oct 25, 2009

So, when using bootcamp today I was installing Republic commando for PC. While it loaded, it froze. So I turned it off and back on, but the windows parition wouldn't start up while loading. Neither did mac, unless I used the safe boot. It wouldn't detect my mouse, and I had to replug it. And finally, I discovered my sound didn't work. It shows that its at top volume, and its locked, with a transparent volume icon. So I can't listen to anything, use my windows parition, and I have to use safe boot (which takes about five minutes) to start up my mac parition. Is there any way to fix this?

MacBook Pro :: Delete Text - Delete And Backspace Keys

Sep 12, 2007

How do I delete text. Let's say I wrote the wrong word, as you know a Windows keyboard has "Delete" and "Backspace" keys, but a MacBook keyboard only has a "Delete" key which acts like the "Backspace" key. So in order for me to delete on work I have to go behind the text and use it like backspace.. how do I just delete the word from the front?

MacBook Pro :: If I Delete A User Account Does That Delete His Library?

Jul 12, 2009

I never use "User Accounts" on my MacBook. So I don't know much about them.

If I delete one User Account, will it delete that user's libraries, such as their music, movies, documents, etc?

Also, will it delete the programs that were installed under that user's account, but are accessible by all users?

OS X :: If I Delete A New User Login - Will It Delete Data On Admin?

Jun 26, 2009

I was running my iMac just in admin, which I know is frowned upon but that's the way I had it. I had a corrupt preferences file and I couldn't save any of my passwords etc Finally created a new user and reinstalled everything and it works fine. Had to replace all my passwords for my apps etc but other than that not that big a deal.

Question is can I now delete the other user now that I have a new admin login?:

It is just taking up storage space with a user which is corrupted but I don't want to erase the data in that user and also delete all my data in the new user as well.

IMac :: Can't Delete Trash / Saying Don't Have Permission To Delete

Mar 6, 2009

I dual boot my iMac using Boot Camp and I'm having problems deleting a bunch of files in my Trash. A short history. I purchased a OWC external hard drive case and I've been going through my old hard drives which originally were used in my Windows XP computer. The drives were contaminated with Windows viruses and so I installed the drives one by one in the OWC case and proceeded to delete files and programs which I didn't need in each drive while in OS X and keeping the files I wanted to save in each respective drive. Now what I'm faced with is a Trash bin filled with Windows XP software (including Windows XP itself) which I cannot delete because OS X says I don't have permission to delete those files.

Software :: Can't Delete A Locked File - How To Delete

Sep 30, 2000

After I installed OS X I decided to go through my other partitions & do a little spring cleaning. In all, I trashed over 400MB of crap, but one file has refused to be deleted (it's a locked file left over from the old 3Com ISDN modem I had). When I try to empty the trash I get the following message:

"The operation cannot be completed because the item 'IQ320.BIN' is locked."

So, I look through the system help & find out that I either need to log in to OS X as the user who created the document ('root') or restart into OS 9 & unlock it from there.

Well, neither tactic has worked thus far. I restarted into OS 9 but found out that I can't access the file because it's in the trash (in OS X), which is an invisible directory (/Langly/.Trashes/102/). So then I restarted into OS X, logged in as root, but I still couldn't delete it. Desperate, I opened terminal, switched to root (su) found the files, but still can't delete the darned file. I tried rm, mv (thought if I moved it to somewhere that OS 9 could see it...), even chown, but each time I got "Operation not permitted." Any thoughts out there?
