OS X V10.4 :: Upgrade Mac 10.3.9 To Highest Version Can Have On Power Mac G5
Mar 13, 2012
I currently have Mac OS X 10.3.9 running on a Power Mac G5. I desperately need to get Final Cut Pro 6 installed on this machine, but it won't install unless I upgrade, so I need to know how to upgrade to the highest version I can run on the Power Mac G5. Does Apple have that upgrade online to purchase?
In order to install Windows 7 via bootcamp, do you have to use the full version of windows or can you use the upgrade disc to install? I figured I should ask before buying another license as I have an upgrade version of Windows 7 Pro that I don't use. I do own previous versions of Windows (all of them....just like I do Mac OS).
When downloading the new version to upgrade an old one, is the new one installed on top of the old version, or is it just upgraded? Simply put, should I delete the old version and then install the new, or is this unnecessary? Hard drive space is at a premium, which is why I ask.
New Imacs are great but lack a Esata port or Express card port, 800 FireWire port is too slow compared to Esata. I am willing to upgrade my macbookpro bus 800 only if a new quad version appears. Any news from all the well informed guys?
To work with a software packet, I need to uprade Ruby to version 1.9.3. The current Ruby version is 1.8.7. What are the steps for upgrading Ruby to 1.9.3 If the upgrade runs into problems, how can I got back to "last known good state"?
Trying to upgrade from leopard to snow leopard on my macbook, for some reason i think the install did not work (still says it is running on version 10.5.8) i am trying to upgrade to snow leopard so that i can move on to lion.
I bought a Power Mac G4 (version=3.3) second hand from my company. It is running Mac OS 10.2.8 and Microsoft Office X. I wish to connect it to my BT broadband hub. However, it does not appear to have an AirPort card and even if it did I was told that the BT hub mainly works with Microsoft rather than apple products. Can anyone advise me how I can connect and what products I need to buy?
Question - how do I get started? I currently have Vista loaded on my BootCamp partition. Do I launch Vista, and run the Windows7 upgrade installation from Windows? Or do I do this from BootCamp?Note that this is an upgrade disc, not a full/initial install version.
I'm using an Intel iMac running OS 10.4.11. Obviously the computer is a few years old now and I'm wondering whether it is worth upgrading the system software or time to get a new computer. Can you guys venture any opinions as to which version of OS X I might be able to upgrade to with decent performance? I'd rather not add any memory if that's a requirement for upgrading - in that case I'd probably just opt for a new computer.

I have Dual 1.8 GHZ Power PC G5 with 1.5 GB DDR SDRAM, with OSX version 10.4.11.My computer has been getting increasingly crazy over the past couples weeks. I'm even having trouble typing this because the screen occasionally "flashes" or "jumps" when I'm in the middle of a task.I noticed the problem first when I would make a new folder. After an untitled folder was made, when I would try to give the folder a new name, the screen "jumped" and I would have to try several times before I could complete the task.
I am having MacBook Pro 13 inches, Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4. The highest available resolution for my screen is 1280x800. I want to get suitable more resolution than 1280x800 (Same Aspect ratio). Does anyone know any display drivers available for this?
I have a powerbook g4 using 10.5.8 how can I upgrade my itunes from 10.6.3. Or put my itunes in the cloud to sync my phone. I can use my moms computer to sync my iphone 4s. However would like to use my computer.
My fans have been really loud lately and that got me worried so I downloaded iStat and my temperatures are as follows
HD: 48 CPU: 41 CPU Heatskin: 42 Airport Card: 43 (But it was at one point 60!) Ambient: 24 GPU: 54 GPU Diode: 55 GPU Heatskin: 53.
I have an iMac 2.4 GHz Core 2, couldn't tell you the size of the screen but if thats needed. I'll find out.
Please let me know if I should take this in to the Genuises and see if my fans need replacement, or something the numbers aren't very high right now, but they do tend to get higher, like HD could get up to 50 at times.
I have a powerbook g4 which has a screen resolution of 1280x854. Does that mean I can watch 720p content? Because adobe in terms of coding for mac is a big fail and won't let me watch anything above 480p with a steady frame rate, is this the same for non flash content?
I am moving from a PC to a mac for the sake of video editing and using Final Cut. I'm debating on the models so could do with your personal suggestions.For general high def video editing ( non professional ) would I be fine with a 13" MacBook Pro 2.9 or would I regret it and should I invest in a full on retina model and make use of the solid state drive speed?Basically would video editing on the old version be sluggish or would the retina just be overkill for what's want. I don't intend to upgrade every year so ideally I'd want it to last me a good 3-5 years. Note that it will mostly be plugged into a big monitor so screen size is not a big deal.
