OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Fresh Install, Now Missing ILife

Jun 15, 2012

I performed a fresh install of OSX with my Snow Leopard upgrade disc, and now I'm missing iLife. I don't have a copy of the OSX version that came with my Macbook Pro. Is there a way for me to retreive iLife without having to shell out more cash? I would think I could request a copy of my original OS from Apple, as I've done in the past with other companies.

OS X :: Get ILife 08 - After Fresh Installation Of Snow Leopard?

Aug 27, 2009

How do I get iLife 08 (which came preinstalled) onto my Mac after I do a fresh installation of Snow Leopard (if possible)? Is it possible to do a fresh install of Snow Leopard? I've heard all sorts of things, but I don't know what to believe. Will I just have to reinstall Leopard and then install Snow Leopard? (Will I have to get all the updates [10.5.x updates] once Leopard is installed before I install Snow Leopard?)

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Fresh Install Leaves Locked Folder At Top Level (Mac OS X Install Data)?

Jun 5, 2012

I jsut did a fresh install.  wanted to use my SL DVD but the MBP i5 refused to star with it so I used the original DVD (10.5) and upgraded with the SL DVD to 10.6.  However after the initial SL Installation, it tried from the SL DVD and this failed.  I did a manual restart, starting from the HD and everything ran fine.  however today I note there is a locked file on the HD named Mac OS X Install Data.  It contains 181 .pkg files.Now I suppose this should have been moved or deleted as part of the install process.  Can I move them to a file where they belong?

MacBook Pro :: After Clean Install Snow Leopard, Can't Install Bundled Application (ilife)?

Apr 2, 2012

This is the first time i reinstalled(clean install) my snow leopard on my MBP. All went fine but then i inserted the disc for bundled application (which contains the ilife apps) but it keeps failing. 

It says that "the installation failed. the installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. contact the software manufacturer for assistance". 

I've also done my research on this matter. I've gone thru a few steps i tried as below without success: 

1)normal install - fail

2)repair permission - fail

3)install in safe mode - fail

4) install using another admin acc - fail

5) made an image out of the disc and install - fail

6) used a similar disc(my dad's since we have identical version) - fai

7)updated my system and install - fail

8) reinstall the mac - fail 

i cant think of any other solution as im a bit noob when it comes to mac. is there any other things i could try before taking it Apple?

OS X :: Snow Leopard - Fresh Install Or Update From 10.5.8?

Apr 20, 2010

I'm finally about to move on from 10.5.8 to 10.6.x. The one time I tried the OS X "update" routine rather than a fresh install was from Jaguar to Tiger on a 12" PB G4 and it didn't go so well... The system never worked as smoothly after that - taking a long time to boot up and shut down. Eventually, I lost everything on that hard drive.

The thing is, I don't have the space in terms of an external drive to back up my current 10.5.8 boot partition (approx. 400 gigs on a 1 partition terabyte drive I installed), nor the patience to completely rebuild my boot partition (with something like carbon copy cloner) starting with a ground-up fresh install of Snow Leopard. So, I'm asking if anyone has had any good luck with just simply "updating" from 10.5.8 to Snow Leopard? Would this be a safe bet nowadays?

Or, am I playing havoc with my system, and should I utilize another method? What would that method be? Time Machine?
My system:
20" (Late 2006, White) iMac Core2Duo 2.16 ghz, 2.5 GB RAM, 1 TB HD OS X 10.5.8 - Audio Related - Logic 9.1.1, DP 5.13

OS X :: Snow Leopard Upgrade Effective As Fresh Install?

Jun 18, 2009

I'm planning on buying a Macbook Pro 13" sometime during early August, so my question is that. Is an update of OS X from 10.5 to 10.6 just as effective as a fresh install of 10.6? I have bad memories from upgrading from one version of windows to another, and was simply wondering whether there would be any "excess litter"?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Fresh Clean Install Fixes Bugs?

Jan 24, 2010

When Snow Leopard came out, I backed up via Time Machine and did a clean install, then restored via Time Machine. Ive been having three main problems, among a few small ones. When I right click the dock, half the time it freezes, denying access to the dock or finder for a good minute or two. Also, front row puts tagged tv shows in the movie section, and catagorizes them as "various" in the tv show section. On top of all that, safari is acting up.

Ok so I was planning on upgrading the ram to 3GB, the HD to 500GB, and do a fresh install of snow leopard. I'm assuming that time machine backs up all the system files and garbage that clogs up the system, so I'm planning on just dragging the files to a external hard drive, installing snow leopard on a brand new 500GB drive, then moving my files back. Will this fix my bugs? Or should I just install leopard instead? Btw leopard ran pretty slugish after a while, and sl did make my computer faster, but I assume the ram upgrade will keep leopard up to par.

Software :: Mail Bombs On Opening After Install Of Snow Leopard & ILife?

Apr 5, 2010

My hard drive died and was replaced a week or so a go. The technician in the iSpot store (the substitute for Apple Stores in Warsaw, Poland) installed Snow Leapord and apparently did not install iLife. After I restored using Migration Assistant from my Time Machine, the iLife programs and Mail would not load.

I took it back and the tech reinstalled reinstalled OS 10.6 and iLife'09. I restored again from Time Machine the the iLife programs then would load and work fine, but Mail is still bombing. Here is what it says in relevant part in the window that appears after clicking on Mail in the dock.

I have tried to reinstall iLife'09 and still get this message.

Does anyone have suggestions for what to do? How do I get it to find the "suitable image"?

OS X :: Leopard Upgrade Or Fresh Install?

Dec 22, 2008

considering upgrading to Leopard over the holiday weekend. I have quite a few programs already installed in 10.4 so I'm considering an upgrade. Coming from the Windows world recently, a fresh install was always better. What about OS X, same thing?

Also, can you load the install disk/image onto a USB stick, boot from it and install from it? Is that easy/possible?

OS X :: Want To Do Fresh Install Of Leopard But Keep Settings?

Jun 30, 2009

I'm thinking about doing a fresh install of Leopard because my MacBook Pro has gotten a bit bogged down. The thing is, I don't want to go through the process of reinstalling all the software and getting my settings back to the point where they are now (it takes years of fine tuning to get it to work how you want it to!).

Any suggestions on how to do a fresh install while being able to "import" my OS settings or installed programs? Is that not even possible?

MacBook :: Fresh Leopard Install - Paused Prints

Feb 19, 2009

just about every printer connected to any of the notebook's USB ports. Strangely, there was one she found that still did work. The problem started some weeks after the fresh Leopard install, so it doesn't seem directly connected to that. Print jobs she starts are instantly paused, and can't be restarted, printer utility gives her the error message "Operation could not be completed, client-error-not-possible". Reinstalling the 3rd party printer drivers and removing/readding the printers in system preferences didn't help. She can still print via WLAN and my own MacBook Pro connected to our printer (the printer on her system configured as a "wireless printer"), so in principle all still seems to work. Also, the USB ports still work with other devices. I've also repaired permissions on her 'book and we installed the 10.5.6 Combo update again�both no success. I'm at a loss of ideas� does somebody else have any tips about what to do, apart from reinstalling Leopard?

OS X :: Fresh Leopard Install On Macbook With Broken Dvd Drive?

Jun 30, 2009

Hi, I have a macbook with a broken DVD drive (one out of twenty problems I have had with this computer ), and was wondering if it is possible to install leopard without the internal DVD drive? I cannot really afford to replace the slot loading drive atm, nor buy an external usb drive.

Is it possible for me to connect my laptop to my friends iMac running 10.3, and using his computer as an external drive to install leopard?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Do Fresh 10.5 Install With Retail Leopard Disc

Jun 24, 2009

I'm sending my 13" MBP in to Apple to have a minor mechanical issue repaired and so I'm installing a fresh copy of 10.5 just for security reasons. Yeah I know, paranoid maybe, but whatever. I have a time machine backup so it's really no sweat off my back. In any case, I thought I'd just use my retail 10.5 disc, but it gave me a bunch of grief. When the computer would boot up with the disc it would just go to a gray screen and sit there.

You'd hear the CD spin up and then stop and it just sat at the gray screen. I tried holding down 'option' before the full boot and it found the CD, but when you clicked it it would just freeze. I just put in the Leopard install disc that came with the computer and it's installing just fine. I guess I'm not too worried since I have the disc that came with the computer and I'll be getting Snow Leopard as well, but it'd be nice to know my retail 10.5 disc would work regardless.

MacBook :: Fresh Install Of Leopard Dies But Windows Lives?

Sep 1, 2009

This is a bit of an odd one.

My GF dropped her MacBook the other night, and since then Leopard would only be able to start in safe mode, and then be very slow accessing the hard drive. I figured the drive had died, but I decided to test it on other computer and it works fine.

Anyway, I did a fresh install of Leopard, which went fine and boots up, but any subsequent boot it dies. Booting in verbose mode, it comes up with some errors on the efiboot screen (I can't remember exactly what they were). I still have access to all the usual boot options etc.

So on a whim, I boot camped up the disk and installed Windows 7 to see what would happen. It installed fine, and works 100%. No complaints about anything at all (except there being Windows on there :P), all hardware functional!

Does anyone have any ideas what the problem Leopard (10.5 and 10.6) might be having? I've erased the drive several times, both quick and zeroed, repaired it and so on.

Hardware :: Fresh Leopard Install - Connecting To Previous Time Capsule Backup?

May 5, 2009

From time-to-time I obsessively reinstall Leopard on my MacBook Pro. I clone my drive to an external, install Leopard totally clean (erasing everything), and then drage back the contents of my home folders. I don't transfer anything from my Library folder, I like to start completely clean and rebuild my settings manually. Yes, I'm obsessive, like I said from before.

So now I've got my clean Leopard install. Everything is perfect. How do I back up to the existing sparseimage that's on my Time Capsule?

I realize it will be a fairly large first sync, but I'd love to still be able to grab deleted files from last October if need be.

Anyone know of settings or .plist trickery to make this happen? Can I simply choose that sparseimage in the Time Machine system preference?

OS X :: Restore Applications On Fresh Snow Leopard Installation?

Dec 22, 2009

I am on my Macbook Pro 17 with an HDD of about 350 GB. My HDD is Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive, Journaled) formated with Snow Leopard installed. I want to make a fresh Snow Leopard installation on the HDD formated as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) but I don't want to lose my applications (it takes too much time to download/install all those) I need a way to get my apps back after/while installing Snow Leopard. What I am thinking is clone my HDD to another blank HDD that I have (about 600 GB) and while installing Snow Leopard chose to transfer my applications. I could also use the Migration Assistant after Snow Leopard is installed (I am not really sure that those options will be possible) I need to know if making a clone of my HDD and then transfer the applications is possible and how can I get it done (what software is needed?) If that's not possible, how do you suggest me to transfer my applications to the fresh Snow Leopard installation?

OS X :: Mac Box Set - Snow Leopard & ILife 11

Oct 23, 2010

I'm on Tiger 10.4.11 w/ iLife 06 (on C2D iMac). Everything works great! I'd probably stick with Tiger as it's been very good and stable. However I'd like to get an iPad but see that syncing the iPad with a Mac/OSX requires 10.5 or newer. I figure if I'm going to upgrade I might as well get current with 10.6. Seems people have had mixed results with getting the $30 upgrade disk and going direct from Tiger to SL. I don't mind getting the "Box Set" from Apple. $130 isn't the end of the world. Couple question maybe someone could help with regarding the Box Set: Can I do an in place upgrade of OS and iLife with the Box Set? If in place upgrade fails or performance isn't quite what I expected can I then do a clean install? A friend said his SL performance was much better after he did a format and clean install as compared to when he did the upgrade (from Leopard) on his MacBook Pro.) I will backup my info. Is there anything to worry about with exporting or backing up iLife apps (iPhoto, iTunes, GarageBand), Email, Address Book, etc in Tiger then restoring in SL and iLife 11?
