OS X Technologies :: Install Mac OS X Lion / Received Message That HD Disk Is Not Formatted As Mac OS Extended
Mar 20, 2012
I am trying to install Mac OS X Lion I just downloaded. At the step where it asks you to select a disk to install, I got this message:"This disk is not formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Use Disk Utility to enable journaling or reformat the disk."What does this mean? Please help me through the steps to complete my installation of this software.
when i plug in my external thats programmed to my mac, on a windows based computer i cant seem to read the hard drive. is there a program or somthing where i can detect it and transfer files between it?
I have two external hard disks, one formatted as FAT32 and another formatted as NTFS .Both cannot be seen in Finder when plug in. Only another one formatted MAC OS extended can. how to dispay my drive in the Finder (I don't want to reformat it as I have lot of contents and need to be read in my window computer.)Im running Mac OS 10.7.3 on my iMAC
I have 43GB available on a 120GB drive on my MacBook base model and I'm trying to partition via BootCamp.I'm trying to allocate 32GB to the Windows partition but I keep getting the following error message:Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again.Now I've backed up my disk and launched disk utility, and try to follow above directions here but the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) area is grayed out and when I click apply after highlighting the MacBook are (in blue), it errors out and says the disk is out of space.
On a Mac OS X 10.4.11. laptop. ISP provider is Comcast. Have successfully been sending and receiving emails at home no problem using Entourage for two years. Have now taken laptop to visit away from home and clicked into the host's house wifi system - AT&T u-vers.
Entourage will now receive but not send emails. Receive 3259 error message about timing out. However, can send fine by going to Comcast's site, therefore Comcast insists this is not their problem but an Entourage problem, probably with settings.
Just bought a new MacMini(my first Apple PC) and when I open mail I get the brief details of mail received but when I click on the message to read the details I get a "loading" sign but the message is not displayed. I have 2 different mail accounts.
Just got a HD and I tried to format it to Mac OS Extended (journaled) From a MBR. After the erase is done it's still MBR!

I'm trying to install Lion and keep getting a message from the app store saying it requires 2GB for install and that I don't have enough - however, I have over 110GB available!Â So what gives?Â My Mac info says I have 1GB RAM (not 2GB)...I'm gathering from another post this is the issue.Â Is that correct?
MBP 2012 running on OSX10.9.3 crashes frequently. Disk Verification gives an error during "Checking extended attributes file." and asks for reboot and repair. No error could be detected and no repair would be done when DU is run during restart.
I recently formatted one of my HardDisk using the Leopard's Disk Utility into FAT32 format.
The HDD works well with the MAC however it will not mount on a windows XP machine.
The hardware detector detects the USB external harddisk but is not able to mount it. When i use the Windows Disk Management Utility, the hard disk appears with a (Not Initialized) and Unallocated warning message.
I want to erase a bunch of ancient floppy disks before dumping them and the drive, and I'd like to script an automated solution that will ensure that the media I'm erasing is in my floppy drive, and I'm not blasting one of my Hard Drives by mistake. I'm hoping that my script will be able to trace from the drive to the floppy to ensure that I've got the right target, else quit before doing any damage. The names of the floppy disks themselves are varied, but the name of the drive itself is stable and known. Disk Utility shows the name of the drive (Y-E DATA USB-FDU Media) and the name of the particular disk volume in the drive at the moment. I can find the floppies in the /dev/disk# special file, but I haven't found the drive itself. Â
I think Disk Utility automatically appends "Media" and maybe "USB-FDU" to a string that it pulls from somewhere, but I can't find that source. how/where Disk Utility digs up the info on the drive itself?
Since upgrading to Lion, I have been having problems backing up to Time Machine using a LaCie external disk. Time Machine worked fine before the upgrade to Lion. The backup usually starts correctly, but after backing up around 1GB, I get the following error message:Â "The disk was not ejected properly. If possible, always eject a disk before unplugging or turning it off".Â The disk has over 80GB of space available.
Occasionally when trying to send mail I recieve the 'Cannot Send Message Using the server' message. I click 'connection doctor' and it always confirms that everything is fine. If I then try to send the email again it will send it straight away, but if I try to send another in 10 minutes time, then I'll probably have to go through the same procedure again. I've never been unable to send mail, but having to launch connection doctor most of the time gets tiresome.Â I've been unable to trouble-shoot as its occurence appears to be random.
I recently formatted my Macbook Pro 2011 that had OS X Lion installed to fix a problem with my HDD, when I boot with the Recovery HD it gives me the option to download and install OS X Lion, but since its not available on Appstore anymore it says that the item I want is unavaible and do not install the OS X. Since my macbook doesnÂ´t have an OS X anymore I canÂ´t access appstore to download a more recent OS X, like Mavericks.
I'm trying to install it for 3 days now and nothing works
When i unpacked it find that the home internet very slow and disconnected from other computer i thouht there is a virus came with it formatted it and tried to install from internet but was not able to download then received this error message apple.com/support .21 00F
I lost all data off my disk after OS X asked me if I would like to use my disk for TimeMachine.The disk was previously used on Windows, and contained data I thought I had a backup of.Â
The disk was a NTFS partioned IOMEGA 1tb disk. After it got formatted by TimeMachine it is HFS+. TimeMachine made a first backup to the disk, about 100gb of data.Â De disk contained movies from a camera which I don't have a backup of. How do I get these movies back? Â I've tried multiple software:
- Data Rescue 3 - Quick Scan: only files from the HFS+ partition - Data Rescue 3 - Deep Scan: only files from the HFS+ partition - StellarPhoenixMacDataRecovery: only files from the HFS+ partition - TestDisk: no results
I just bought the 15" Macbook Pro i7 this weekend. I have a copy of Windows, and it loads up just fine. I used Bootcamp Assistant to partition my hard drive, but when I get to the windows install, it says that the hard drive isn't formatted correctly to install windows on
I have an old G5 I'm getting ready to sell so I wanted to format the hard drive. I went to disk utility, went through the process of erasing the disk, and then I did the thing that writes zeros over everything on your hard drive for just a fully clean formatting...
Moving on now to install Leopard (I tried Tiger too), when I get to "Select Destination to install Mac OS X", my hard drive won't show up at all. When I go to disk utility or startup disk, it only shows the Leopard disc that's in the computer at the moment. Doesn't show Mac HD or the volume or anything whatesoever...
I feel like at this point only something can be done from the Terminal, Everything I found people could still at least click on their HD in the disk until...
