MacBook Pro :: Cannot Get The Snow Leopard Disc To Show Up Holding Options?

Nov 27, 2010

I picked up an 80 GB Intel x25-m yesterday and installed on my 15" i7 MBP but could not get the Snow Leopard disc to show up holding option, and tried "c" at boot.As a work around, I tethered the MBP to an iMac via firewire and installed Snow Leopard on the MBP but after, it would display the apple logo but not boot.

OS X :: MBP Disc Drive Won't Recognize Snow Leopard Disc?

Aug 29, 2009

I have a 2007 Intel MBP, running Leopard. I purchased the family version of Snow Leopard. When I tried to install it, it just spins the disc for a minute, makes the noise like it's trying to read it and then spits it out. All other discs work fine with my MBP so I know it is not the disc drive itself. I have all software "up to date." My brother installed SL on both of his MBs, one newer than mine and one older, just fine (with the same disc). I haven't seen anything out there with this issue so I wanted to start a thread to see if anyone knows how to resolve this issue (beyond taking it back to Apple and exchanging).

We have just had a replacement drive put into a 15.4" MacBookPro and the installer made a mistake with the name. How can we change it to the right one? Do we have to insert the Mac OSX disc (Leopard) into the machine at start up and will this wipe anything that is on the machine?

Software :: Mounting Server On Leopard - Doesn't Show Up On Desktop

May 30, 2008

One wired thing I realize when using Leopard is that whenever I mount or connect a drive, it does not show up on the desktop. But in facts that the drive is connected and only shows at the side bar under the Shared panel.

OS X :: Start Up Disc Full And I Can't Open Disc Drive?

Apr 4, 2009

My G-4 startup disc is full and now the computer won't start up. I am told to put a startup disc in the drive and restart from it, but I cannot get the disc drive to open. I have tried everything, including copying over to external hard drive. I read that if you hold the mouse button down, the disc drive will open, but this hasn't worked.

OS X :: Tiger To Snow Leopard Disc

Sep 12, 2009

Now that it's been out for awhile, I was curious what people's success rates have been with just getting the Snow Leopard disc and not the box set to upgrade Tiger? Or is it still recommended to get the Box Set? I honestly rarely use either the iLife or iWork suites, so that's why I was wondering.

OS X :: Using Mac Snow Leopard Installation Disc?

Mar 14, 2010

So I had an aluminum 2008 unibody macbook. I replaced the hard drive with a 320gb and it has leopard on it. I damaged it and had to get a new mac. I now have a white unibody mac. To copy every thing would be a pain. I'd rather use snow leopard. What I want to know is if I can use the reinstallation disc 10.6 that came with the white macbook to upgrade my 320gb leopard hdd to snow leopard?

OS X :: Install Snow Leopard But Does Not Show Any Changes In System?

Did I waste $29? What did I gain? Time Machine? Preview of icons? Pretty name and package doesn't mean it's quality. I like apple stuff, but this seems like a money grab.

OS X :: Sent Scratched Snow Leopard Disc With Pictures?

Sep 3, 2009

I obviously didn't choose my words correctly because everyone would rather pick apart what I said and did rather than acknowledging that...Apple sent me a scratched Snow Leopard disc.These things do happen so make sure you always backup your data and always check the disc before you put it in your computer. Even if its from a company you love and trust.

OS X :: Snow Leopard - Up To Date Disc Version?

Sep 3, 2009

Just a quick question; I just received a SL upgrade DVD for one of my Macs, in the post, and it had the disc number: "2Z691-6557-A". I was a bit surprised that the DVD just came in a simple paper sleeve, tossed into a padded envelope with 2nd class postage.Is this the experience of others?. Also, is this particular upgrade DVD (with the same disc number as mine) capable of erase and install?. I don't like doing upgrades, I'd rather start fresh.

OS X :: Installing Snow Leopard -Mac Won't Boot From Disc?

Apr 28, 2010

with my Leopard installation i have a problem where it fails to boot up likely due to a previous unexpected power cut.

From googling the issue it seems like the only solution anyone has had to the same problem is to re-install.

However I've lost my Leopard system discs.

I booted into my Bootcamp Windows installation and installed the latest drivers from the Snow Leopard disc which i recently purchased (and came today)
This gave me the option to read files (and presumably copy) from the mac partition but no delete function.

I have two problems here:

1. I only have 2.61GB free on the mac partition, Snow Leopard requires at least 5GB. Since I can't boot into OS X and Windows can't write to the partition i can't delete any files.

2. My mac won't boot the Snow Leopard DVD for installation. I hold C while booting and it has no effect. It does however run the Hardware test if i hold D while booting.

I have an external drive i could probaly make enough room on to back up my entire osx partition for a totally clean re-install.

However this requires some sort of access to the drive/write capabilities. Maybe something like bootable linux?

And any idea why my disc won't boot? (even if i had enough space for a install...that would be a bit pointless if i can't get the disc to boot)

OS X :: Snow Leopard And Acrobat Pro (not Show Full Document)

Sep 7, 2009

MacBook 2.4 GHz Dual Core
4GB SDRAM 10.6

Anyone noticed when making Combined pdf files (into single document) that Acrobat Pro only shows the first page, and not the full document. Meaning that one has to manually pull the sidebar down to scroll other pages? My install went perfectly, aside from a few minor glitches, Illustrator and Photoshop (CS4) quit now and again, but removed permissions, restarted and repaired permissions and is a lot more manageable now.
Safari and Mail are almost twice as fast now. Let's see how soon 10.6.1 appears.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Only One Program In Which Unicode Characters Do Not Show?

Mar 12, 2012

I use my computers to work with my family tree.  I have been looking for a new program that meets my needsd for a family tree program.  Among the features is the ability to type in Ukrainian (cyrillic/unicode/utf script).  I type in Ukrainian for other programs (I am not fluent, just need some ability).  I have the language and keyboards installed and they work great will all the other programs. 

The program I want to use is Gramps (genealogy software) which I tried a couple years ago (and it had a shortcoming at that time) and the old version was on my computer.  I have deleted it, including in Application Support.  When I imported my GEDCOM file, I was ecstatic that all the cyrillic characters were there.  However, when I went to type in Ukrainian, the letters were "greeked".  A suggestion from the Gramps group was to ensure that my "locale" was set to "utf-8" which I did.  This did nothing, even after rebooting and reinstallling.  The database was fine, but still unable to type in Ukrainian.
