Nov 12, 2010

I have an iMac G5 (circa 2005) with a non intel processor, I recently purchased Snow Leopard to update this, however it advised I need an Intel Processor to install Snow Leopard. Is there a way of getting round this, the main reason being is I want to use the Magic Trackpad - but ive been told this will only run on Snow Leopard OSX? If anyone could answer this asap I would be grateful, today is the last day I can take back Snow Leopard and the Magic Trackpad to the Apple Store for a refund.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mac Book Pro, 2006 With An 2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo Processor?

Jun 15, 2012

Apple keep telling me I need to update to icloud but I'm not sure if Lion will work on my Mac. I've upgraded to snow leopard which seems to have knackered my .me or .mac account (whatever it's called now), so I don't seem to have any option but to upgrade to Lion if I every want to see my emails again. Apple say I must have a Intel Core 2 processor for Lion to work. at least I think that's what they say. I have a mac book pro, 2006 with an 2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo processor, can I update to Lion?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Will Macbook Pro Intel Core Duo Run It OK

Jul 6, 2012

I have the following system spec on my Macbook Pro which i bought in Apr 2006: 

2.16 Ghz Intel Core Duo 
2 G 667 Mhz SDRam 

I would like to know if Snow Leopard will run on my system. I have been getting a few glitches for the last while when running internet related searches for certain sites like Youtube, and sometimes with streaming video. I figured that maybe i need a more up to date OS as i've been a bit slack with updating it.

Software :: OS X Snow Leopard On Macs With Intel Core 2 Duo Processors?

Feb 9, 2010

Aperture 3 runs as a 64-bit application on Mac OS X Snow Leopard on Macs with Intel Core 2 Duo processors.Does that mean that Aperture 3 won't run as a 64-bit app under OSX.6 on quad-core machines (like the top-of-the-line i5 iMac)? They can't be serious!

Hardware :: (Snow) Leopard Installation On Mac Mini (Intel Core Solo)?

Jul 3, 2009

In a few weeks time I'm getting my Mac Mini upgraded to 2GB memory for Snow Leopard when it comes out. My Mac Mini is a 2006 Intel Core Solo model, and in September I'll be wanting to buy Snow Leopard but I want to be 100% sure that my Mac Mini will be able to install Snow Leopard since its DVD media. I know I can't burn DVDs with this Mac Mini but, although may seem like a stupid question will I be able to install Snow Leopard with it being DVD media.

OS X :: Do Not Run Snow Leopard In 64bit

Aug 28, 2009

Contrary to belief, Snow Leopard by default (except for Xserves) runs in 32-bit mode. Check for yourself.

uname - a
You should see something similar

root:xnu-1456.1.25~1/RELEASE_I386 i386
I forced it to 64-bit on my '08 Mac Pro and things were slower! Spaces was very slow. Dashboard was quirky. I say avoid it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Kernel Appears 32bit And Processor Is 64bit On Mac Pro?

May 11, 2012

It appears that for whatever reason, the kernel on my Mac is 32bit/i386, but the architecture is 64bit:
Darwin system.local 11.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.3.0: Thu Jan 12 18:48:32 PST 2012; root:xnu-1699.24.23~1/RELEASE_I386 i386

Though the kernel itself is a universal binary:
mach_kernel: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures
mach_kernel (for architecture x86_64):Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
mach_kernel (for architecture i386):Mach-O executable i386

Applications :: Snow Leopard - ITunes 9 With No 64bit Support

Dec 4, 2009

I recently installed Snow Leopard. It works faster than before and it gave me 8GB of space back. But, after looking through Applications in system profiler, I found out iTunes is not 64-bit unlike Safari and other native applications that have been re-written to 64-bit. I remember Apple said iTunes is also re-written. I must download a new version or it's included in an update (I'm waiting the 10.6.2 update to download at the moment)?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: MacBook Pro 3,1 + 10.6.8 + EFI64 = Still No 64bit Kernel?

May 18, 2012

Model Name: MacBook ProModel Identifier:  MacBookPro3,1Processor Name:  Intel Core 2 DuoProcessor Speed: 2.4 GHzNumber Of Processors: 1Total Number Of Cores:2L2 Cache: 4 MBMemory: 8 GBBus Speed:800 MHzBoot ROM Version: MBP31.0070.B07SMC Version (system):1.18f5  

I know this has been asked numerous times, but most of the answers I found were old and archived. I was wondering whether or not an update or a guide has been released which allows a successful boot into 64bit kernel?  On a side note, I have verified my computer does have EFI64. However I know in the past that this stil didn't enable a 64bit boot.

My attempts  to install Mac OSX 10.6  on iMac MC309 bring  always the same result  - kernel pamick. What I did was:1. insert DVD  Snow Leopard Install Disk, reboot and  press ''C' - kernel panick;2. reboot into Recovery Mode, open  Disk Utility, erase   the preinstalled Lion completely, format the disk as Mac OS Extended (journaled). Then try to reboot   into DVD   Mac OSX 10.6 install disk:  kernel panick.3. In Disk Utility go to restore tab, use DVD install disk as source and  use  my disk as destination, hit restore. When trying to reboot kernel panick happens.

MacBook Pro :: Finding Total Users Of Snow Leopard 64bit Kernel

Apr 11, 2010

I know by default that Snow Leopard starts up in 32-bit kernel but anyone here boot into the 64-bit kernel? I think to do this you'd have to hold down 6 and 4 keys while booting.

By now almost all 3rd party apps are running 64-bit and all this time I've totally forgot about the 64-bit kernel!

I've just booted up to 64-bit kernel and all apps load instantaneously!

OS X :: Snow Leopard 32bit Versus 64bit Kernel - How To Boot It / Finding Supported Hardware

Aug 27, 2009

So, with Snow Leopard, there is a 32-bit kernel, and a 64-bit kernel. Correct?

As I understand it, it will boot into the 32-bit kernel by default, but if your hardware is supported, you can select the 64-bit kernel.

My question is - where is the list of supported hardware, and how do you select the 64-bit kernel?

My confusion comes from several posts and various articles which all say the first-gen aluminium iMac has a 32-bit EFI, and therefore can only boot into the 32-bit kernel. But I've just downloaded an app called Startup Mode Selector, which shows you your system config, and it says I have a 64-bit EFI.

I was just wondering if i bought the imac with a 2.5ghz quad core processor if apple could switch out that processor with a 3.4 ghz quad core processor. I understand apple makes it easy for the user to add extra ram and i will be doing that within the first week but id like to have a more powerful processor without paying 1,999 for the 27in 3.1ghz

Mac Pro :: Processor Activity Maxed Out At 50% With Snow Leopard?

Feb 18, 2010

I've been running some deinterlacing jobs with Compressor on our Mac Pro 3,1 dual processor. We'd added some RAM so I was interested to have a look in Activity Monitor to see how it was faring and noticed that the CPU activity never went above 50%. I find it very hard to believe that Compressor isn't intended to take advantage of both processors.

Intel Mac :: Core 2 Duo 17" Doesn't Start Anymore - It Only Stays At The Loading Screen?

Apr 15, 2012

My 2006(ish) Intel core 2duo 2.16 mhz 20"  imac wont start up, it only stays at the loading screen, how can I fix this? I have tried:

• safe mode reboot

• restart using p, r , command and option (resetting the pram)

• restart using the original Mac OS 10.4 disc

• restart so I get the image of the HD but I can't click on it to continue and restart again!     • single user mode (CMD+s keys at bootup, and then /sbin/fsck -fy) 

It just doesn't do anything else than display the grey screen, the apple and the spinning wheel (sometime, I do get a scrolling bar also!). I managed to perform a hardware test from the Mac OS disc and there seems to be no hardware problem. Nothing works.It stays stuck on the grey screen, with the apple and the wheel turning endlessly.
