Mac Mini :: Should Hold Off On Getting Until Snow Leopard Comes As Its Default System - CS3?

Mar 13, 2009

I am currently the owner of an aging Dual 800 Quicksilver and running Tiger on it. Been working on this machine for almost 7 years and still runs like a champ. It is starting to show its age big time, especially in CS3. Just wondering if I should hold off on getting the Mac Mini until Snow Leopard comes as its default system? Do you think Apple will give the mini another boost in specs this year? I'll be getting the Mini this year at some point with the Dell e-IPS 22" monitor. I'm a little nervous since I have heard so many issues with CS3 and Leopard (at work, we tried it and it constantly crashes). I don't want to bother with CS4 (or CS5 for that matter).

How much faster would the new mini be compared to what I have now? And ONE last thing. I know the 2009 mini has only been out for a short time, has anyone attempted to put in more RAM than the 4 GB supported? Photoshop is a hog for RAM if working on multiple layers, etc.

OS X :: Mac Not Start Up After Snow Leopard Installation

Feb 17, 2010

I've installed Snow Leopard but now my mac won't start up. (It's a early 2008 mac pro so it should be able to handle it). All that happens is it loads past the apple logo, the rainbow wheel pops up, the background loads and the search icon (magnifying glass) appears but nothing else at all beyond that. It just waits for ages (a few times that note has appeared that say's I need to restart the computer).

I've tried.
1) Re installing it
2) Reinstalling it on a different partition (that had windows on before) but nothing seems to work.
I really need to keep all my data so I want to be careful.

OS X :: Installing Snow Leopard - Mac Cannot Start Up From This Disk

Jul 1, 2009

Whenever I boot up the SL install disk (either plugged in via USB drive or remote disc from my iMac), I select English as my language, "Continue" on the welcome screen, and when I get to the portion where I have to choose a disk to install onto, my MBA's hard drive has a yellow triangle on it and a caption underneath that says "Mac OS X Cannot Start Up From This Disk".

I've used Disk Utility to Verify and Repair, but still get the same result.

My MacBook Air is a 2nd generation machine, 120G hard drive (45G free), and MS Office 2008 installed. Other than that (and all my music and files), it's exactly as it came from Apple when I ordered it.

OS X :: Start Up And Shut Down Times For Snow Leopard?

Aug 28, 2009

I have a new 09' 20" iMac Core Duo 2.66 with Snow Leopard.

Shut Down: = 7 Seconds. Tried 4 times, same result.

Start Up: 42-44 seconds to Login Screen

Login To Desktop fully loaded: = 6 Seconds

I am not impressed by the Start up or Login. I believe I clocked Leopard at the exact same speeds.

Overall I am not noticing much difference in anything.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Harddrive Icon On Start Won't Go Away

Mar 12, 2012

This morning when I turned on my Imac, it presented me with the Mac HD icon, I had to select this to continue with the boot. 

I've checked the startup options and the correct (and only) drive is selected, re selected it a few times just in case but this didnt have any effect. 

Checked that none of my keyboard keys are sticking by unpluging it during the boot so the keyboard couldn't interfere, still the same. 

I've tried a pram reset but don't seem to have any joy getting this to work. I hold the correct sequence of keys down just after the chimes ( cmd, option p and r) but that doesn't seem to get me the 2nd chime. Have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 

Is this a sign my HDD is going? I use the system for a lot of video editing and photo editing, could this amout of usuage cause any problems

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Keychain Access Does Not Start

May 8, 2012

I had to reset my password through the Install Disc.  Upon restarting my Mac, I chose to reset my Keychain Access password.  However, it does not seem to have updated, and when I go to Utilities to open Keychain Access, it does not open. I created another admin account, and Keychain Access does not open for that either.

MacBook Pro :: Will Not Start On Snow Leopard Install CD

Sep 6, 2014

Recently my MBP has been running slowly, sometimes giving the spinning ball, not loading websites, etc. I ran disc check and it came up fine, so I thought I would completely clear the drive and start over with the Snow Leopard disc - then install mavericks (It seems a lot of websites are requiring a newer version of safari that I can't install because I'm running 10.6.8). So, I backed up everything I wanted, inserted the disc, and turned off the computer. I restarted and held the c key, and the screen went dim, then a dialog box popped up and told me to restart the computer. I've tried a number of times and have the same problem every time. When I restart from the HD I get this Problem Report:

OS X :: Snow Leopard Won't Install - Disk Cannot Use To Start Up Computer

Aug 28, 2009

this isn't an isolated issue - there are threads about this over at Apple and InsanelyMac: I'm unable to install Snow Leopard. When I run the installer, it'll tell me that "Mac OS X cannot be installed on "Macintosh HD", because this disk cannot be used to start up your computer" (Macintosh HD being my OS X volume, obviously). I'm seeing this issue on a relatively new 1.8ghz Macbook Air with a 128gb SSD - however, as far as I can tell from the other threads, the problem also affects iMacs and Macbooks.

Some people apparently attributed the issue to a PGP installation they had on their harddrive. Others found a file called backup.backupdb in their root - deleting it fixed the problem. However, most people don't have any of that installed on their computers and the upgrade still won't work. - if anyone has found a solution to the issue, please let me know :-( I'm stuck here. I don't have an external drive for the MBA and booting from a network drive has never worked on this particular machine - so I can't do a clean install, either.

Windows On Mac :: Extremely Slow Start Up With Snow Leopard?

Dec 30, 2009

I have installed Win7 on my Mac and it works fine other than the sound issue. However, when I tried to start up Snow Leopard using the option key, I get "EFI Firmware" and "Windows" as the the two options not the "HD Macintosh". anyway, when I select to start the Mac side, it takes about 10 minutes to start up-seriously. Once it starts up, everything is fine. Windows starts up immediately when I select it. I tried talking with Apple support but that was no help as they blamed it on the fact that Bootcamp does not support Win 7 at the moment.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Hit A Key To Start Up The Computer, Getting Blank Screen

Feb 7, 2012

In the last few days, when I hit a key to start up the computer, all I will get is a blank screen with the small, multi-colored, rotating disk icon.  I can't get out of this unless I hold the power key down for about 5 seconds, which I know is probably not the right way to shut down.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Can't Start Mac Because Took Too Much Space And Now The Disk Doesn't Mount

Mar 27, 2012

I am most certain that this is the case: foolishly, I didnt leave much free space and now the disk doesnt want to mount. I tried the single user mode, I also booted from DVD, they appear but the disk utility shows the disk but I cannot repair the disk, because it is unmounted. I tried the basic commands in single user mode, no effect either. I still cant get over the blue screen with the apple logo and a circle running. I need to free up some spasce. Unforetunately, important  files were not backedup, so I really cant delete the whole disk. I need to delete specific files.  I dont know where are my big files located - so, how do I orientate myself among the folders? Lets say I would delete my itunes libary, which I would later on renew thanks to the back/up, how would I delete them?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: A Flashing Question Mark Appears When Start Mac?

Jun 17, 2012

I've tried all the "fixes" to this problem, but none of them seem to work.•When I hold option, no hard drives show up.

•When using Disk Utility from the install disk, no hard drives are found. (Shows up just as "Media.")-If I wait long enough, they do show up, but problem still persists after repairs.

•Still doesn't boot after resetting PRAM

•I can't reinstall Mac OS because my computer does not recognize that there's a disk to install it on. 

What makes this all weirder is that if I wait long enough, it seems to work just fine, but then once I shut it down, it won't restart any time soon. 

I also seem to have a problem taking it out of sleep. The screen comes back on, but the spinning wheel shows up if I try to do anything before my fans spin up.

MacBook Pro :: Video Of Intel X25-M G2 160 GB + Snow Leopard Program Start Up Time?

Aug 28, 2009

I couldn't wait any longer. I was going to wait until tomorrow, but I decided to test it out today. The following is a short video clip of the X25-M in action under Snow Leopard (on my late 2008 uMBP 2.53 GHz, 4 GB RAM).

It's not much of a benchmark. I simply selected everything in the Applications folder and hit open to start all the programs at the same time.

Needless to say, I am happy with the results!

This video is loading Photoshop, Illustrator and Soundbooth all at the same time. And then individually.

The video quality is not the best. It's on my old Olympus C5050z digicam.

Also, quick xbench results (left is old HDD, right is SSD):

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: A Flashing Question Mark Appears When Trying To Start Computer?

The only thing that showed up in disk utility were the DVD drive (Matshita DVD...) and the actual Mac OS X installation disc. I realize I could try and simply re-install Mac OS X, but I have a research paper (as well as lots of songs and photos) that hasn't been backed up and I will lose it if I reinstall. What can I do?!
