Windows On Mac :: Vista Doesn't Recognize Blu Ray Disk?

May 12, 2009

I recently installed an LG GGC-H20L Blu-Ray and HD DVD drive into the second bay of my Mac Pro. This in itself was an absolute pain, as I had to enable AHCI for Windows Vista by using a modified mbr because I was using one of the ODD_SATA ports on the motherboard which Windows doesnt' "see" cause it runs in legacy mode. Everything there went completely fine, as now I am running in AHCI mode and I can see the LG drive and I can play CD's and regular DVD's via that drive in Windows Vista. However, the problem now is that when I insert a Blu-Ray or an HD DVD, Windows doesn't even recognize that there is media in the drive. It says there is no disc inside. When I boot in OS X, I can clearly see both the HD DVD and Blu_ray (although I can't play it or do anything with it).

Windows On Mac :: Vista Ultimate Disk Doesn't Work?

Mar 9, 2009

I've followed the Bootcamp procedure correctly, but when I load my Vista Ultimate disk all I get is a blank screen. I've left it for a while, but even after half an hour still nothing.

What could the problem be, any tips?

It is a MacBook and 32 bit Vista if that if of use.

Windows On Mac :: Windows Doesn't Show Up In Start Up Disk Control Panel

Jan 3, 2011

I have a macpro with OSX on one drive and windows 7 on a partition of another drive. Both systems work fine and I boot into windows by holding the option key down. What is odd is if I go to the system preferences startup disk my windows install does not show up. I did move my windows partition a while ago to a new drive. I used bootcamp to create the partition and winclone to move the data. It's not a big deal not having the option in the preference pain but would be nice. If I am in windows and go to the bootcamp control panel both OS X and Windows are there.

Oct 18, 2009

I have an Office Template that was burned by Windauz for Windauz and when I put it in the drive it appears to be blank, but it says it's using 40mb of data and the information shows up when I put it in a Windows computer.

I know I could put it on a thumb drive and put it on my MacBook but I want to know WHY this is happening and what to do.

QuickTime :: Program To Show-up In System Preferences?

Mar 20, 2012

I just bought the new Quicktime Pro application- for $30. Cannot find out how to download it. The "downloading steps" first instruct me to go to my APPLE ICON, Select SYSTEM PREFERENCES, and then select the QUICKTIME icon.... But I can't find the Quicktime Icon.  It's not there. Yes, I already have the Quicktime 7 application. So WHY  won't it show up in my System Preferences?!

OS X :: MAC Partition Doesn't Show Up When Pressing Option At Startup

Feb 18, 2009

Was trying to install Windows XP through BootCamp. The installation did not go through, and I quit it. After I tried to restart the computer however, it kept going to a black screen with a blinking _ on top.

I restarted, pressing the "option" key and the only partition that shows up there is one for Windows. I can't see one labeled "Mac" or something like it anywhere. I tried using the Repair Disk Utility but it won't actually give me the option to repair ir.

OS X Mountain Lion :: On Startup Mail Doesn't Show All Email

Jun 26, 2014

I am using Apple Mail on my Mid 2010 iMac (27", 3.6 GHz i5, 12 Gig RAM, 10.8.5)  and have recently run into a bit of strangeness. I shut down the iMac every evening, without shutting down Mail. Mail opens on startup, as expected. However, my list of emails is not current, with the latest email from about 1AM that morning. I know this is the case because I see many more recent emails on my iPhone. When I quit Mail and restart it, all the emails show up. How I can get Mail back to its old behavior, namely showing me all emails in my inbox on startup?

Software :: HD Won't Show On Startup Disk?

Nov 26, 2008

I have an Imac 17" intel core duo 1.86 Gz, 512Mb ram. I put a new Hd because the other one died. When I go to disk utility I can see the HD. I formatted it as Macintosh HD and mounted it, however when i try to intall the OS using the original disks, it says "Software can't be installed on this computer". When i click on startup disk, the only thing i see there is the Mac OS DVD and Network start up, but no Hd at all. Some say maybe i don't have the original install disks but someone at the mac store said that the HD is not mounting and thats why the software can't be installed. Holding the Option Key at startup, only shows the Mac OS DVD. Am confuse why i can see the HD in disk Utility but in startup disk there is nothing.

OS X :: Stopping Startup Processes That Are Not Under The System Preferences Users Panel

Feb 21, 2010

I use the latest macos on a late 2009 mini.

I use a program called smart response. It drives electronic whiteboards and a wireless response system.

I use it at home, and I never actually connect my computer to the hardware. I use it to prepare stuff at home.

Is there a way to stop these processes from loading? I can kill them, but as a mac os newbie, I have no idea how to take control of them in the mac.

The windows equivalent would have been to go and disable the startup process under the administrative tab in the control panel.

I installed Windows Vista, and Vista boots up fine. However, I hold down the command keys when starting my computer up again, and it won't let me select Mac OS X. It just starts Vista.

Hardware :: AEBS - MobileMe / Disk Doesn't Show Up In Finder

Mar 12, 2009

Since the AEBS firmware update I've been trying to access my usb-disk, connected to my Airport Extreme, through the internet using MobileMe, without success. My iMac and Powerbook show up in Finder under the 'Shared' tab but my airport-disk doesn't. Back to my Mac is giving a green light ... MobileMe registration in the Airport utility sticks and all settings seem to be OK. What's wrong?

ISP also provided a router (Philips) which is NAT and UPnP enabled ... AEBS is connected to the Philips with ethernet (Bridge Mode). Disk is HFS+ formatted ...

Anybody got the same problem? Anybody got a solution ...?
