OS X Mavericks :: Reinstalling Software Without Original Discs

Jul 1, 2014

I have Sibelius 7 installed on my MacBook Pro.  It is licensed to a friend of mine, he gave me the second license that comes with the software.  I am looking to reset my Mac to Factory Settings, as if it's new, but I would like to reinstall Sibelius once it has been reset.  The problem is, I don't have the original discs, my friend has them.  Am I able to reinstall Sibelius from a back up without the original discs, or should I wait until I can use the discs again?   

I'm running a MacBook Pro with OS X Version 10.9.3 with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor with 8GB of memory.

OS X :: Uninstalling And Reinstalling Mac Leopard - How To Know About It

Jun 2, 2009

1. Am I supposed to run any kind of disk maintenance (repairing permissions for example) prior to reinstalling Leopard?

2. Since all of my apps are going to be downgraded to its previous versions that originally came with Leopard installation DVDs, and my OS is going to be downgraded to 10.5.3 (I am on 10.5.7 at the moment), I am in a dilemma. Is it better to go with step-by-step update of Leopard (first download 10.5.4 and install it, than 10.5.5, etc...) or go directly to 10.5.7 from 10.5.3 (I think combo update is all about that, correct me if I am wrong)

3. About all the apps that go with Leopard (iTunes, iMovie, Quick Time Player)... Do you suggest me to update them as soon as I install 10.5.3 or to update to 10.5.7 first and then install all the application updates?

OS X :: Resize Without Reinstalling Everything - With Leopard / Boot Camp?

May 27, 2009

When I first got my iMac and set up Boot Camp I made my Windows partition a little overoptimistically small. Now that I've got all my required work software installed it's basically turning out that I really should have made it a lot larger. Is there a way to resize without having to reinstall everything? I remember back in my dual booting Windows and Linux days there was a program called Partition Magic that just sorta really magically, it seemed like, did whatever you wanted with partitions on the fly. Is there any way to do this with Leopard/Boot Camp?

OS X :: Reinstalling Leopard On MacBook With Broken CD Drive

Jun 22, 2009

So I recently decided to attempt to revive my "broken" macbook. The two major problems with it is 1. There is zero battery life. I mean if I unplug it it dies. 2. The disc drive simply does not work. It will accept discs but will not read them. The other major problem is that vista is the only operating system on the computer, because I used to use it as a ventrilo server, and as a WoW server for about a week. Now, i'm wondering, is there any way to install leopard not from a disc, but from a hard drive? I have a legitimate copy of leopard and am really annoyed right now because I would like to take the computer in for repairs but cannot do so because of vista.

I did a fresh install - and usually it prompts me for the Applications cd towards the end of the installation. For some reason it didn't. I didn't change any of the default options and normally with other OS installs in the past it's prompted me.

Jun 14, 2010

I am a graphic designer and therefore have a LOT of software (Adobe, Quark, the usual suspects). I want to upgrade to Snow Leopard on my G5 with 16G of RAM. I have made a copy of my 500GB startup drive with Carbon Copy Cloner and I am ready to wipe the original disc and make it happen. But before I start, can I drag and drop my applications and library folders so I don't have to reinstall everything?

OS X :: Need Original Leopard To Install SL?

Oct 21, 2009

At the moment, I am using the Unibody MacBook Pro with Leopard (OSX 10.5), but I would like to install Snow Leopard. How does it actually work? Do I have to install Snow Leopard over my existing Leopard? And if I want to reinstall Snow Leopard while using it, will I have to install Leopard again in order to be able to install Snow Leopard? The problem is that I heard that Snow Leopard checks whether you have original Leopard installed on your mac in order to progress with the installation. So will I always have to install it over Leopard so that I will need both dvds (Leopard and Snow Leopard) in the future?

MacBook Pro :: How To Move Original Files To External Drive, Not Just Copy And Delete Original

Dec 31, 2009

I've looked at some other posts that have gone over how to move files to an external drive, and they all say to use command while moving. I understand this copies the file and deletes the original, but when you make a copy and delete the original, you lose some of the original data, such as creation date, etc... This makes storage and organization more complicated than it has to be.

Mar 24, 2012

I have one of the first Mac mini's.  I upgraded the memory to 80 GB's, the processor is a 1.42 GHz PowerPC G4.  I'm getting a new Mac Mini that will work in the iCloud. The software is version 10.5.8, the newest the processor can support.  It works well, albeit a little slow at times. I want to give the old mini to my 12 year old grandson, and would like to upgrade the keyboard and mouse to the mac magic mouse and wireless keyboard.

OS X :: Restoring The Leopard Dock To The Original Images

Mar 12, 2009

So there I was with my dock on the right-hand side in 2D mode, and having now switched it to the bottom I realise I switched in some new dock image files back when Leopard came out, and now I've got a funky multicoloured spectrum dock.

All well and good, but I don't think I have any of the original dock image files anywhere. Short of reinstalling Leopard from scratch, is there any way (or utility) to get my dock back to the default Leopard version?

OS X :: Restore Leopard To Original Factory Settings?

Apr 5, 2010

I'd like to restore a Mac to its original settings as if it was store-bought where the person who buys it gets to enter their own info (name, address, etc), gets greeted with the welcome video, etc.? I tried Mroogle, but only suggestions I found was to drag stuff to Trash, which doesn't sound like what I'm trying to accomplish.
