OS X :: Can I Simply Image My PC And Copy It To My Mac?

Oct 18, 2009

So I have a Dell PC that I have used for a year and a half and also just got my first Mac. I see they have this Boot Camp where you can run Windows on the Mac.

How exactly do I get my existing system ported over to the Mac? Or do I have to do a fresh Windows install? My Dell had Vista pre-installed on it so I'd have to see if I have the Dell backup CDs/DVDs. I do nightly backups of my Dell using Acronis True Image...can I somehow just restore that image right onto my Mac?

I wish I could completely flip over to Mac, but due to some drawing and architecture programs on Windows, I can't. I know I also could just have two separate computers, but I'd really rather consolidate to one.

IMac :: Can I Simply Copy One Machine Onto Another?

Oct 10, 2009

I have two imac's, a 24 inch 2.4 w/ 10.4.11 that's completely decked out in "working properly" audio programs (pro tools,reason,finale, ect).

I have another that's a 24 inch 3.06 w/ 10.5.8 that is a better machine... Can I "wipe" clean this machine and literally copy the whole other machine onto it? With a little luck things will it possibly work properly?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Copy Image From Browser To PowerPoint, Get A Link Instead Of Image

May 25, 2012

When a user copies an image from a browser into PowerPoint 2011 he gets text of a link back to the image, not the image itself. But if he copies from a browser into Word he gets the image, and can then copy the image from Word to PowerPoint. Same results with both Firefox and Safari. Behavior is new so I assume it relates to recent software updates but user does not recall accepting any.

OS X :: Copy And Paste An Image From A PDF?

Jul 24, 2008

Greetings -- I'm having trouble copying-and-pasting an image from a PDF. When I use Preview or Skim, I can select a region of a PDF and click "copy" and then paste that image into another program -- HOWEVER, the resolution of the pasted image seems to be fixed and not very good.

In Windows using Acrobat Reader, I would just zoom in and copy a region to get a higher-resolution copied image. However, no matter how I zoom in OS X I don't get higher-res copies.

I found a limited alternative, which is to use Previews 'grab' to select a region of the screen and copy as a tiff. This is essentially a 'print-screen' so that the resolution is as good as the current view. HOWEVER, this is rather limited and annoying because one needs to have the entire image able to fit on screen and because one has grab, then open the resulting file on the desktop, and THEN copy and paste from that new file.

Does anyone have tips on how to grab high res images off a pdf?

OS X :: Reformatting Mac - Can I Simply Use The 10.5 CD?

Feb 22, 2009

I have never reformatted a mac as of yet so I'm not really sure how to go about it.

I've had my Powerbook G4 for around 4-5 years and I simply have NO CLUE where all the discs are that came with it. The other day I just upgraded to Leopard so I was wondering if it possible for me to reformatted the HD by using only that Leopard install disc?

OS X :: SL Disc Not Readable - Simply Ejected

Jul 11, 2010

I want to completely reinstall my SL onto my MBP just to have a fresh start and 0 out my hard drive. I've already backed up all my important files and everything I need, but when I put in my SL disc it tries to read it and then just kicks it out of the drive without ever showing up on my laptop. It is not the disc I used when I upgraded my MBP from 10.5 to 10.6 though because I misplaced and cannot find that copy, but I am using a friends copy (I don't think this is the problem). I know my drive should read it because it reads every other CD I put into it and it shows up on my friends MacBook as well.

Software :: Is It Safe To Simply Reinstall Leopard?

Apr 7, 2009

I'm a PC guy being asked to help a Mac-owning friend. Her G5 running Leopard is acting very squirrely: iTunes keeps forgetting its tunes and complaining about damaged libraries (even after a uninstalling the old and installing the newest version); Photoshop crashes when scrolling through a folder of pictures (I moved them to a different drive and that solved it, but...), and other odd behaviors. She messed up the configuration of TimeMachine a while back and says lots of stuff seemed to go wrong after that. She has 2 internal drives and I noticed that some of her apps, like Quicken, appear to be installed on the second drive. Data files appear to be strewn about everywhere.

Her fellow Mac friends said the system needs the OS re-installed. On a PC the best approach is to reformat the drive and do a clean install. Is this advisable on a Mac -- especially this one?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Simply Share Address Book?

Apr 18, 2012

I want to share all my contacts with my wife so we don't have to reenter or add them all separately with vcards.

There used to be a way to just share my address book with someone, but now that seems to be gone. 

I've looked around a bit and so far the only thing I am seeing is where this is done through some server set up, which is way overkill for what we want to do. 

I just want to be able to share my entire contact list/address book. 

I tried exporting my address book, and then on importing to hers, I am informed that it will REPLACE everything in her current address book.  Not what we want.

ICloud :: Save Documents Simply As Storage?

Jun 11, 2012

Can you save documents to iCloud simply as storage and to access from another PC, iPad or device that isn't your own?  I want to access documents remotely but can't see how to do this without buying iWorks for my iPhone, which is not what I want.  I previously stored a few important documents on iDisk and am trying to replicate this so I can access them when I am away from my MacBook.

Applications :: Creating A Virtual Drive (not Simply Mounting)?

May 28, 2010

I've been scouring Google for a while trying to find a way to do this, but to no avail. I have a playstation emulator on my mac and am attempting to mount an iso of a game to play it. (As a legal sidenote, I do legally own the game and ripped the iso myself from the original disc, so there shouldn't be any issues with that -- I just don't want to have to use the cd and keep it with me, etc.).

I have been able to get a perfect .iso, .dmg, and a folder containing the files. The only thing I can't manage to do is mount it in such a way that the emulator will see it as a disc and not a mounted image. That is, the typical Disk Utility kind of mounting. I have tried it with Roxio Toast versions 7 and 10 (10 is the latest, but I had heard that 7 mounts it in a unique way) to no avail.

There is an old program called Virtual CD-RW ([URL]), but the application won't even open when I downloaded the demo version (double-click/selecting "open" simply didn't have any response at all). However, the kind of language used to describe it seem to be what I am looking for: manipulating kernels in such a way that other applications see it as an actual, physical cd-drive.

Assuming I don't have any more luck with Virtual CD-RW (still trying though), is there any other program/OS way to accomplish this?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Simply Clean Install On A Fresh Hard Drive?

Apr 21, 2012

This nonsense: To upgrade your Mac to OS X Lion, you must be running OS X Snow Leopard. If you have OS X v10.5 Leopard, purchase OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard now and install it on your Mac. Then buy OS X Lion as a digital download from the Mac App Store- seems very very un-apple.

So let me get this straight: I have to install an outdated OS (snow Leopard) in order to install Lion. ???

Remember when an OS was self contained, not an add-on upgrade feature?

I am puzzled- I would simply like to boot my mac pro from leopard (current os), and install LION on a newly placed, freshly formatted internal hard drive on same computer. Why would i need to have the intermediary step?

The folks at apple store couldn't answer- even the genius folk weren't sure- dissappointing at best-

OS X V10.7 Lion :: 10.7.4 Mail Signature Position - Simply Place It At The Cursor?

Jul 4, 2012

I can make no sense where Mail is going to place a signature I choose. Sometimes it's in the middle, sometimes at the bottom (invisible without scrolling). A few minutes ago it was placed a the top, above all my text! I feel I have no control over this. I see no algorithm choices in Signatures or General preferences. 

Is there a way to make the default the simplest, most obvious location: At the cursor? That's when and where I want it when I choose it.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Has Simply Stopped Backing Up Any New Files?

Apr 28, 2012

I have a Macbook with OS X 10.6.8 and a 500GB external hard drive, which still has 208.5GB available. For some reason, Time Machine has simply stopped backing up any new files (documents, music, movies--anything). No items are set to be excluded from backups in Time Machine options except for the external hard drive itself. Also, no error messages appear, Time Machine seems to run just fine, but when I enter Time Machine, or look through the files on the hard drive, new files just aren't there. I am not very tech savvy, so I was not able to understand some of the answers people gave to similar questions on here. I did go to Pondini's website and followed as many troubleshooting instructions as I could understand (for example I did manage to do a full reset of Time Machine) but nothing changed. Do I just need to erase the entire backup drive and sart all over? If so, what will prevent this from happening again later on?

Safari :: Drag An Image From A Page In It To The Finder And Have It Be Saved As An Actual Image Instead Of A Webloc?

Apr 16, 2012

Safari used to let me drag an image from a webpage to the finder and have the dragged file be saved as an actual image but now all that's saved is a webloc file.  I want the image saved, not a reference to the image's URL - do I now have to always use "save as" to save it? 

I can understand Safari creating a webloc file if I dragged the site icon from the location bar to the finder, but to make the default behavior for dragging things that are parts of a page (not the page itself) as webloc files seems like a HUGE step backwards for usability. 

Does anyone know if there's, say, a key to hold when dragging to avoid saving a webloc file or a defaults command or something to make Safari revert back to sane draging behavior?

OS X :: Use Image As Desktop - Cannot Find The Image From Where I Have Stored?

I still have the picture up but I cannot find where the picture is stored so I can save it for later. I checked HD/Library/desktop pictures but no luck. Does anyone know where these pictures are saved?
