OS X :: Macbook Running Leopard And IMac Running Tiger - How I Can Upgrade Them Both?

Nov 15, 2009

I have a Macbook running Leopard and an iMac running Tiger. I am looking to upgrade Leopard to Snow Leopard and Tiger to Leopard. If I were to purchase Snow Leopard and install it on the Macbook, would I then be able to use the copy of Leopard that came with the Macbook on the iMac? I am not trying to use 2 copies of the same thing on different machines, I just want to put a new os on one machine and move the existing one to another.I am reluctant to purchase the Mac Box Set version of Snow Leopard for the iMac because I do not want or need iLife and iWork.

OS X :: IMac Not Getting Past Blue Screen

Jun 19, 2009

I am running OSX 10.5.7. Installed it several weeks ago. This morning, the computer was acting up a bit. For instance, in my wife's account, I couldn't access our shared iTunes library, getting the error saying it was locked. When I rebooted, suddenly I couldn't get into the machine. It just hangs on a blue screen. I've tried booting with the shift key down, and that didn't do anything. I also tried cmd-s, but don't know what to do with that at the prompt, and cmd-v, which works fine, but just dumps me into the blue screen again.

I have a bootable FW drive, and I can boot fine off that, and even see the internal drive. I've opened files on the internal drive -- it all looks intact. But I still can't boot from the internal drive. I've tried Googling for solutions, but if you google "hangs on blue screen" or bsod or whatever around OSX, you get a bunch of hits related to installing 10.5.7, which isn't my issue, and you also get articles from 2006 and 2004, etc. I was hoping it was some sort of permissions thing, but I am not really sure.

Intel Mac :: Getting The Blue Screen On Startup?

Mar 24, 2012

My Imac has the dreaded blue screen on start up. To avoid this, I unplug the machine each night which solves the problem. I have contacted an Apple service rep who says I need to replace the hard drive. Nothing I have read indicates this.  I have not added new hardware, not changed anything. Could it be my hard drive is bad?

Intel Mac :: Booting Up To A Blue Screen?

Apr 10, 2012

I'm trying to boot a relatively new intel iMac. I can boot to a blue screen, in which all that happens is the music that happens with the welcome video of mac OS X.  

I currently have no keyboard to do diagnostics with because I don't have the wireless keyboard that came with the mac, nor a wired keyboard. I'm planning on borrowing a simple wired keyboard to use to diagnose the mac in verbose mode and safe mode etc. 

The owner of the mac has done a complete reinstall, hence the welcome video music, and that hasn't worked, as the screen shows no sign of anything other than blue.

Intel Mac :: IOs Don't Load Still On Blue Screen

Apr 27, 2012

I was using Safari on my iMac, but suddenly started to go slow, with the typical multicolor ball. After this, and because i cannot do anything more with the computer i tried to restart it, but never finished the process.

Finally I restarted the computer manually, but after that appeared a folder with a "question" mark on loading screen. I tried to start the computer on Safe Mode, and was possible. Then I checked the hhd with disk utility and appears ok.Well, i tried again to restart and the computer seems to load IOs, but finaly still on a blue screen with a working wheel apearing at times.

Then i restarted again on safe mode to try to do a new backup (the computer was going well, and i was so stupid to use the backup hdd for another use) but when it's only at 200mb, more or less, time machine says that there is an error and stops.

MacBook :: Screen Goes Blue While Using / Diffrent Blue Colors Appear On Screen?

Sep 17, 2010

while i am using my macbook the screen will suddenly go blue and flash between different blue colors like it is trying to work. sometimes it comes back on but most of the time it stays like that. I have to force shut down with the button and then restart...about half the time it is still flashing blue after the restart and if it does work, it goes blue eventually.

dont know if its a problem with the screen or what because the computer continues to work...if there is a movie on, you can here it in the background and the screen just flashes.

Software :: Black Screen Leopard 10.5.2 Intel IMac

May 7, 2008

Middle of last month I bought a 20" IMac. Everything was fine up until about 1 week ago when the screen went black. I clicked on the mouse button several times only to have a password box pop-up. After filling in the response, all was fine.

Next, same scenario but the password box didn't appear any more. The only way to get the screen back was by a forced restart.

I turned off the screen saver, set the 2 controls in energy server to off, unchecked the box at the bottom left & put "auto login" to to on the Accounts window.

Problem continued.

Next move was to zap the pram, this was 2 days ago. The screen didn't go black but often asked for my pw. It's now back to its beginning phase which is a forced restart !!

I was told that it was due to Leopard 10.5.2 & am considering going back to 10.5.1
