OS X Mavericks :: Restoring After Erasing Disk

Jun 2, 2014

I tried to install Mavericks and it told me my disk had been damaged and needed to be repaired. I took it into the Genius bar, he wiped my disk and told me when I got home to plug in my backup harddrive and click restore and it should be resolved. But I did the restore, created a new profile and everything and I can find my backup folder because my harddrive is plugged in, but don't know how to get everything from that folder back onto the computer, and back in its rightful place. i.e. pictures back in iPhoto, songs back in iTunes

OS X Mavericks :: Gray Screen After Erasing Hard Drive And Resetting NVRAM / PRAM

Jun 17, 2014

I have a mid-2011 iMac (with Mavericks OS), and am doing a clean install before giving my computer to a relative. I performed a secure erase of my entire harddrive (using disk utility), reset the NVRAM / PRAM (but it only chimes once even after I tried several times), and now I get the grey screen even when I try to boot from CD, safe boot, or any other commands. I can't even get back into the disk utility.

On a side note, I have the install DVD in the DVD drive and I can't get that out.

Hardware :: Erasing Sparsebundle On TC?

Apr 30, 2009

My iMac gives an error when trying to backup, so I'm trying to erase the sparsebundle and start over. Every time I try, i get an error saying "The operation cannot be completed because the item 'bands' is in use."

Any ideas on what "bands" is and how I can erase the TC? Is there a way to restore to factory settings instead of trying to erase the sparsebundles? (plural because I back up both my MB and iMac on it.

Hardware :: Erasing An External HDD Partition?

Oct 22, 2010

I have an External 1 TB HDD where 250 GB of it is dedicated to Time Machine back-ups. I only have about 25 GB of space left but Time Machine won't update .. says there's not enough space. I thought that TM auto-deletes the oldest entry? Well it's not working. What should I do? Do I need to do into Disk Utility and just highlight my TM Partition and erase it then start over? There's nothing on it that I need.

OS X :: Partitioning An External Drive Without Erasing

Nov 3, 2007

In the effort to use Time Machine, I want to partition my external drive. I have 500 gig external, and would like to have one partition of 480 and one around 20. This way, Time Machine will only back up onto the smaller partition, not endlessly backing up until all 500 gigs are used. The reason I need to partition without erasing is my 170 gig iTunes library. Its too large to transfer to my internal HD, and I have no other drive to store it on.

I have royally screwed up! I want to erase the hard drive on my Power Mac G4 to prepare it to go to my son. I thought I was doing it right, but had forgotten to put the energy saver on "never turn off" so the screen dims when I try to continue with the erasing. Tried to start over with an install disk in the tray. Now can't access the original disk.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Reinstall It Without Erasing Disk

Apr 27, 2012

I did the upgrade from Snow Leopard to Lion.  I've been having random issues like it seems to go to sleep (all monitors go black) and when I close the lid; the light goes on (but doesn't blink like normal sleep).  Or during wake-up from sleep, after everything appears, it does the same thing.  The only thing I can do it hold down the power button, wait, and restart.  Today I'm on my 4 1/2 crash/reboot.  (.5 because during a reboot, it locked up again.) I was thinking that maybe a re-install might fix something, but I'm not sure. When I originally did the upgrade, I had a DisplayLink driver installed which Lion moved to the Unsupported folder; don't know if this is part of my problem or not.
