OS X V10.7 Lion :: Porting Downloaded 10.7 To USB Drive?

Apr 17, 2012

I am currently on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and I have just I purchased Lion 10.7 from the App Store.  The issue is that I my current Snow Leopard is having some issues and I prefer a fresh install from 10.7 through USB.  How do I go about porting the downloaded 10.7 apps to a 8GB USB stick so that I could boot up from the USB stick and installed it to my MacBook?

Hardware :: Porting Video To External Monitor

May 23, 2009

I have a milky white iMac and the LCD went bad. It's not worth spending a grand to replace the LCD but the rest of the computer is fine so I thought I would put it to good use. So, I ported out the video to an external monitor. All I'm seeing is the wallpaper. No icons. No Menu Bar. Nothing except the wallpaper. I'm pretty sure it's a resolution issue but I can't get to anything to change it. I can right-click on the desktop but the options are limited and certainly don't let me change the resolution.

Applications :: ITunes - Sharing And Porting Library

Feb 4, 2010

1)On my G4 mini, I have iTunes 9.0.3 which houses my current music library (not music files)

2)On an external drive, I have all my music files, organized by iTunes.

3)My new iMac - has exactly the same iTunes 9.03 installed. I have no music on my new iMac and in fact have not even opened iTunes as yet.

Can I:

a)Copy the entire iTunes Folder (located inside the Music folder) on the mini, and paste it into the iMac Music folder, replacing the iMac iTunes Folder.

b)Disconnect from the mini the external drive on which I have all my music files organized by iTunes, and hook it up to the new iMac.

Will my new iMac now play the music through iTunes just like the mini did? And after that, can I simply switch the external music hard drive between the iMac and mini as I please as long as I don't add/modify music in one and not the other library?

Software :: Downloaded File Disappears / Unable To Find Downloaded Files

Apr 28, 2010

About a month ago, a friend who had just purchased his first Mac emailed me and asked why his Dock DownLoad file disappeared. I had no idea why. He still hasn't been able to reestablish it.

Yesterday, I downloaded something and my Dock DownLoad file vanished. I have tried rebooting, using (useless) Help, Spotlight, Search, and several other things. NO JOY. NO DownLoad file.

1. Does anyone know where to find DownLoad or how to bring it back?

I have experienced several idiosyncrasies with Snow Leopard, but when I call Apple support, they are very nice, but haven't a clue as to why it's happening.

2. Another problem is that the Highlight gets anchored on something in Mail, Word, and some other Apps. When I click somewhere else, the whole area between the "anchor" and what I click on is lit up. Apple doesn't know what causes it. I have to go through multiple machinations to shake it loose. I don't know what it is that causes it or specifically how to "shake it loose". Neither does Apple.

3. When typing in Word or an editor, there are times when the type changes to UpperCase and won;t let go.

Another problem is that, at times, when I click on a file, it fills the screen. Apple is aware of this problem and is trying to find an answer. Nothing, to date.

Apple support can't tell me why the MacMail Inbox spinner disappeared or how to get it back.

There are times when I can't access the hidden Dock. After rebooting and trying other things, the Dock finally shows up but any additions that I have put on the Dock are no longer there.

When I put a DVD in the slot, for the first few seconds, it grinds but does smooth out.

I thought that SL was supposed to get rid of the "foibles". "What happened on the way to the Forum"?

Is anyone finding other SL idiosyncrasies? What are they?

If anyone can help with items 1., 2, and/or 3. I'd be grateful.

BTW, Apple says that items 2 and 3 MAY be caused by the wireless Magic Mouse and/or the wireless keyboard; however, when I use alternates, it still happens.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Still Not Downloaded After 18 Hours?

Mar 20, 2012

I'm trying to dowload a lion upgrade and the lion icon drops down to the icon bar, and the download begins, but after 18 hours it is only 25% of the way through. I pause and resume every few hours in case the process is stuck, but nothing speeds this up. My wifi connection has been fast enough to download big installs like this before in a few hours, so I can't figure out what I need to be doing differently.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: App Store Says It Has Not Been Downloaded?

Jun 9, 2012

I was just having a browse through my purchased Apps on the Mac App Store. As you can see I am running Lion 10.7.3, however Lion appears in my purchased items but gives me the option to "Download" instead of "Downloaded". 

I know its months away but I am concerned about this possibly interfering with the Mountain Lion update.

Downloaded Safari 5.1.4 Update Into Lion / Won't Now Launch

Mar 13, 2012

Safari 5.1.4 update downloaded into Lion 10.7.3 on a Mac mini earlier today. Won't launch. Creates a report saying it is 5.1.2."Reopen" just repeats a report (many sent from different accounts!)As far as I can see other apps still work including Adobe CS4 and Firefox.Cannot enter safe mode to try it there by using shift on reboot as suggested for Lion.Not sure what extensions I have for Safari but very few. Definitely Ghostery (wouldn't be without it).Have looked at "get info" and it is running (or, to be more precise, not running) in 64 bit mode. Tried 32 but that didn't work either so have restored to 64. I have run out of ideas, short of abandoning Safari and waiting for the next update.
