OS9/OS8/System 7 :: Where Can Find Installation Floppies

Apr 30, 2012

Someone was messing with my Power Book 2400 and moved an OS file from its library location. Now I can't shut it down. So it looks like I need to reinstall the OS. I have the disk but it's a CD. This little guy only takes floppies -- via external drive. I've looked on eBay, but no floppy version of the OS. What do I do now?

OS X :: Formatting Floppies On A Mac?

Jul 28, 2009

I have a bunch of old floppy disks with date and photos on them. If I want to format them and remove the data how do I do that on my iMac? ( I have an external floppy disk drive). On windows it was pretty simple to do but not sure how to do it on a Mac. Do you use disk utility?

Intel Mac :: Convert 720 KB 2DD Floppies Via USB?

May 6, 2012

I have a box of old 2DD 720 KB floppies containing sound banks for a 1991 synthesizer. I have looked in vain for a USB floppy disk drive that will read the MIDI files and transfer them to my desktop so I can use them in Logic 8. Problem is.... NO ONE really seems to give ALL of the info I need. Some drives do not say they are Mac-compatible; most say nada or dance around it. Others say HD disks only. The Amazon customer reviews are similarly iffy. This is a one-time need, but I want to get it right.

Do any of you know of a USB floppy drive that will really do this job?

MacBook Pro :: Cant Find Installation File?

Jun 18, 2012

Was in the middle of installing adobe master collection and it froze. I restarted my machine but cant find the install file. I was using the assistant manager does this mean i need to download the whole thing again or is in in a cache memory folder? Some of the applications have installed and some are have not. What is the best way to clean this up? Do I delete all the files and start again?Is there a cache folder with a file i can click to continue the download?

MacBook Pro :: After Installation Of The Software, System Stopped Working?

May 3, 2010

my new 2010 MBP just went to hell on me. All of a sudden all my factory installed software such as ical, dictionary, stickies, photobooth stopped working. They wont open in any way, either dock or applications. I've deleted plist, repaired disk permissions and repaired disk... nothing. Third party apps, safari and iphoto work. But iphoto froze when I open it. Apple wants me to reinstall the OS but I would like to avoid if possible.

Hardware :: Epson R1900 Installation - Not Recognized By System

Jan 4, 2009

I got myself an R1900 for Xmas but it will not seem to be recognized by my system.
1.83 GHZ

The Epson is on a powered hub (with two other hard drives that mount and function onto the Macbook with ease) on approx a 10 ft USB extension to the rear USB ports. I've installed and deinstalled the supplied software several times. It will not add the printer to the printer que. At one point in the install it asks for the USB to be connected - it's then a small animated sequence until it sees the USB cable (which it does ) and then it goes on to a dialog box that that says "Open the Printer List" - that opens nothing, even though the sidebar instructions talk about printers lists and USB dropdowns and such.

Forcing past that gives you "printer not added" and there seems to be no manual way to do so. I've read that restarting the Mac past that point will add it to the printer list (nope), that removing the printers from the list that are in there (only one, a little cheapie HP 3930, which when removed comes back on the restart). At this point, I'm wondering if (a) I backup everything and move to Leopard and start with a clean system or if (b) someone other there see's what's happening and has a good answer I've overlooked.

Software :: Restoring After HDD Change And Clean System Installation

Mar 9, 2009

I have just upgraded from a 60GB HD running OS X 10.4.11? to a 250GB drive.

Before changing HDs, I backed up the old HD onto an external FireWire drive using Retrospect Express 6.1.
I made a clean install of 10.5.6 onto the new HD, installed Retrospect Express.

I then restored my entire old HD to a *folder* on my new HD. There is room for it on the external FireWire disk also if that is better.

I expected wrongly to be able to use Migration Assistant to integrate my applications, e-mails, calendar, bookmarks, etc. into 10.5.6 but it did not allow me to select a folder to migrate from (I think it is looking preferably for another Mac attached via FireWire or at least an external disk, but I'm not sure what it's limits are).

I am also now concerned about Migration Assistant losing data (such as filed e-mails) as I have consulted with a tech friend who says it is problematic and I should restore by hand!Can you tell me the most efficient and reliable way to get out of my predicament? I'm crazy busy business-wise and I don't have time to lose wallowing & finding my own way, I can afford the time to do things right though :-) which is why I'm asking.

Obviously I am shut down now, I do not want to start doing "real work" on my computer until all my applications and files are in their proper places.

Applications (Quark, Adobe, Apple), all my Mail accounts, iCal, Fonts, Firefox + extensions & bookmarks are my mission-critical tools.

Windows On Mac :: OE M XP Installation On Boot Camp -- Non System Disc Error?

Sep 6, 2008

I'm having problems with a Boot Camp partition and XP Professional SP2.

I setup a 20GB partition on my drive (I'm using a MacBook Pro, 3GB, 120GB hard drive). It's the only partition other than the one I use for OS X.

I didn't have full-install SP2 discs, only an upgrade. So I went to Fry's and bought a legal, new OEM disc and license for XP Professional SP2, full-install. I ran the installer and all went well...until I rebooted. At that point, Windows wouldn't load giving me a non-system disc error.

MacBook :: Error Loading Operating System - Bootcamp Installation

Jun 2, 2009

I did not have enough memory and I had already deleted some games in the past to do updates. Well I downloaded Windows XP Home about half a year ago and decided I really did not use it all that much. When I downloaded It i cut the memory in half (1/2 OS X and 1/2 Windows XP) So I went back to my Bootcamp installation papers to see how to properly uninstall Windows. So I did and everything seemed fine the only thing I thought was odd is that it only took like 3 seconds to uninstall so i knew it did not actually uninstall. I did not think much of it cause I could now download the update.

Power Mac G5 :: PCI Serial RS232 Port Card Installation Options In A System

Nov 11, 2007

I recently purchased a PCI card made by SIIG: CyberSerial PCI 16550 RS232 Serial I/O Card. After I got it I noticed the system requirements only list Windows.For the **** of it I installed it in my Power Mac. The system seems to recognize it in "About This Mac..." as a "Serial Controller". There appear to be serial ports assigned to it: /dev/cu.pci-serial3a.When I try to run a serial terminal program over this port (connected to some known working hardware) I get gibberish. I've checked out the cable and remote hardware on another machine and it works fine.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Restore Selective Intonation Vs Full Installation Compromised System

Mar 15, 2012

I have reviewed notes regarding selective app restore method and am aware that there are issues assossiated with failed apps since the original app installer installs files in various libraries and system settings..My backed up Mac contains rogue programs such as the programming app python 3 and various rogue bugs and system settings

1 Does a full restore reset all backed up system settings or does it keep the fresh installation and include all your apps and settings such as mail accounts mail folders documents pictures movies podcasts etc without the bugs

2 Should the answer to 1 be a yes all compromised settings will be restored, then will I have issues with installing VMware fusion as its an encripted integrated app that I keep all my master business applications but store documents in the Mac documents area

Other factors

1 My accounting tax business has been hacked over and over again for the last 7 months from start of tax season

2 I have lost 50% of my clients due to the interruptions and been hospitalized twice from sitting on the computer for extended hours and days reinstalling fresh system and restoring Mac documents only, 3 times over, as well as trying to learn everything about best practice, hacks etc

3 I'm using fire vault 2 however the time machine backup is not encripted are there any potential problems with either of the two methods?

4 I will be using a proxy server when I next build the Mac will this be enough to mitigate potential security breach using the full time machine restore method?

5 I have many apps that I have not purchased through the app center and have not kept the keys and will be a headache to get all my details

6 what implications are there as far as the prior keychain access is consurned? How does that get restored?

What is the most effective and efficient method to restore from time machine given above scenario?

Windows On Mac :: Unable To Find Windows 7 Installation Bootcamp

Jul 1, 2010

I seem to be rather confused after reading so many websites which say its possible to install windows 7 upgrade over xp by custom install in bootcamp.

I purchased a windows 7 upgrade which I have downloaded as a ".img" file.

However, bootcamp doesnt recognize my .img disc.

I have tried converting the .img to a .iso, and then burning the .iso as a iso disc, but still no luck. (Im not sure if its because of Active iso software Im using to burn the discs or if im doing something wrong.)

I have a legit version of XP already running via bootcamp.

Mac Pro :: Random Lockups Find In My System

Apr 12, 2009

original 2.66 dual mac pro and for the longest time the mac would randomly lock. It would be on for a couple of days and just lock, sometimes it would be a few weeks. I checked the console and did not see anything as to why, just that the logs stopped.I started by taking out drives (have 3 drives) which did nothing, then i started with the ram. I've got 2gigs of apple ram (4x512s) and 2x2gb of non apple ram. I first removed a gig of the apple ram (2x512) and noticed from multiple weeks it doubled the time i would see lock ups (could be a coincidence). I finally removed the last 2 sticks of apple ram and my machine hasn't locked up since.

OS X :: Find / Locate System Files?

Apr 16, 2009

On linux I use "locate" to find anything via command line. I see that locate is installed on my Mac but invoking it does not always find what I am looking for I thought that maybe I need to update the database but $ sudo slocate -u gives me a command not found error. Is there a cool apple trick to finding files that I know are right in front of my face?
