IMac :: How Does The OWC Professional Installation Service Work

Jun 20, 2009

I am thinking of sending in my Mac Mini to OWC because I'm not good with the insides of computers. I am wondering how the Service works. So am I suppose to add the Service, the RAM, and the Hard Drive to my basket and it knows what to do? When I get the box, do I go to a local FedEx facility to send it back? Is there anything else I need to know? I need advice from people who have sent in there Macs to OWC. Sorry if I sound like a noob, I am new to Macs and just wondering how the service works.

Windows On Mac :: Process Says "Windows XP Home Edition Or Professional With Service Pack 2 Or Later" Is Required?

Jan 13, 2010

When reading the setup guide for bootcamp, the page that lists what you need for the process says "Windows XP Home Edition or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later" is required...However, the installation disk that came with my Windows XP reads Service Pack 1, Version 2002.What should I do? Can I proceed with Service Pack 1? If not, how do I get service pack 2?

Windows On Mac :: XP Installation Discs (Service Pack 2)

Mar 7, 2009

I recently bought a Mac and I want to install windows XP using bootcamp. I have installation discs for XP from my previous computer and i want to use them to install xp on my mac, however I was reading through the bootcamp manual and it said this: You must use a single full-install Windows installation disc (Service Pack 2 is required for Windows XP installations). Does this mean that to setup windows using bootcamp there can only be one install disc? I seem to have 2 installation discs and I'm confused about whether or not they can be used?

Mar 26, 2012

I'm looking to buy an iMac i7 3.4GHz with 256 GB SSD for professional audio use. I'm wondering if it would be faster to stream audio samples from an additional 2TB internal hard drive or an external Thunderbolt drive.

OS X :: Installation From Old Disc Not Work On New Hardware

Dec 1, 2008

I loaded the discs with the C button pressed and a pop up window says that they will not work on this hardware.

OS X :: Won't Work With Re-installation / Bootcamp Drive

Apr 7, 2009

I went to do a system update which froze on "Configuring The Install" (or something similar). So I gave my quad Mac Pro a cold reboo and I get a prohibited sign, or whatever. (You know, the ghostbusters symbol without the ghost.) I know, I deserve that though, shame on me for turning it off during a system update. I waited a LONG time. I don't think that's the root problem though. Anyway, I boot up via the system CD, load up Disk Utility, which (takes forever) and after trying to Verify, I get an "Invalid B-Node Size" error. I try to click "OK" but Disk Utility continues to be unresponsive for a long time. I wait it out, reboot back into Windows and here I am.

The hard drive is super old. Like probably 7 years. It's a Maxtor 6Y120, 114 gig SATA drive. So I think it's probably just failing. Disk Utility couldn't unmount it or verify it. So what I want to do is just reinstall Leopard, but I have a LOT of work stuff on my Windows drive. (A separate physical SATA drive, not a partition.) Obviously I will back it all up, but I would definitely like to avoid reinstalling Windows, all my apps, and restoring my work files.

So I have a couple of questions - 1) Will re-installing Leopard "orphan" my Windows bootcamp drive, so I can no longer boot into it? I would want to erase my Mac HD or possibly buy a new one to replace it. Which brings me to my 2nd question - 2) If I buy a completely new hard drive and install Leopard there, will my bootcamp partition still be bootable/intact? Or will they hate eachother?

Hardware :: Won't Work With SSD Temp / After Installation

Mar 10, 2010

So I just installed the new 200GB OWC Mercury Extreme SSD (SandForce Chip) in my 2008 Penryn (non-Uni) MacBook-Pro.

Seems pretty fast and all, but iStat is displaying a temperature of 263 degrees?#!#$%@@#

I know this thing can't be operating at 263 degrees, though I placed the temp monitor at the exact same location it resided on my prior 5400 RPM hard drive. Not sure what the problem could be.

OS X Yosemite :: After Installation Password Doesn't Seem To Work

Dec 4, 2014

I recently upgraded my OS with the free installation for Yosemite. When trying installing Yosemite my Macbook Pro running Mavericks asked me for the user password, which I provided.Yosemite installed fine, no problems. 

Now, however, I am needing to install some software on my Macbook Pro after installing Yosemite. Like before, it asked me for my password, but this time it came back as incorrect. I tried several more times and it's still registering as incorrect.

I followed the directions shown here: OS X Yosemite: Reset a login password 

However, I can't follow the instructions past step 4:

4. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Users & Groups.

5. Log in to your account....

When I click on Users & Groups, I don't see anything that allows me to log in to my account (I'm assuming it's because I'm already logged into it?). I only see options to Change the Password, open the Contacts Card, Login Options, and change Parental Controls. When I select "Change the Password", it asks me to enter the old password, which I can't do for obvious reasons.

So what can I do to recover my existing password?

OS X Mavericks :: Time Machine Does Not Work After Installation

Jul 1, 2014

After I installed maverick on my imac, my time machine backups don't work anymore!!!! I have a normal portable HDD attached to my Imac with time capsule backup from before mavericks was installed.I also has a Buffalo NAS as a second Time Machine Backup.   

Time capsule does not recognise my Buffalo NAS and tells me that it is not available.  It has previous backups from Mountain Lion for sure!My portable HDD keeps saying "Preparing for backup" for eternity. I can connect to my portable HDD and Buffalo NAS as a drive.   What I have been doing is to copy and paste the important stuff into the drives.  But it really defeats the purpose of time machine.

Software :: Won't Work With Kernel Panic Error During Installation

Jul 11, 2009

I'm in possession of a mac pro 2x 2.8ghz intel quad core running leopard. I have a main hardrive and a secondary harddrive. I was attempting to reformat the first hd and reinstall leopard. I pop in the cd as I have with many other systems, click the install startup and reboot, after about 4 minutes of waiting I see the black screen drop and it asks me to restart my comp, presumably a kernel panic error. I've done this with two different hd's to rule out it being an hd problem. I've also procured a friend's copy of leopard and the same problem occurs. The system was acquired from a local business that closed recently and sold off it's stuff which is how I came into possession of the system. It has no 3d party hardware that I can see. I find myself wondering if it is a problem with the motherboard and since the system used to be for business purposes perhaps there is some sort of block or lockout on the mobo that's preventing an installation.

OS X :: Win7 Installation - Command Keys To Boot Wont Work

Jan 17, 2010

I got an iMac 27inches and I tried to install win7 by bootcamp. So everything goes smooth until it ends the installation. When it resets to start windows its just continue in that cicle. So I turn on my mac, it goes to te windows7 promp "Windows Error Recovery" and when I select one of the options "Safe Mode" - "Start Windows normally" it just resets again. And the worst part is that I can't even boot from CD or from my HD. I tried all the key combination and nothing.

IMac PPC :: Imac G3 Installation Of Tiger Cd Won't Boot?

May 14, 2012

I have the CD version of tiger and am trying to install it to a recently purchased iMac G3. The Installer installs disc 1, resets, but doesn't boot up to install disc 2, it simply asks again to install disc 1. The Mac for some reason will not boot from the installed software and therefore I cannot complete installation. Can anyone figure out why the mac refuses to boot from the HD in order to install disc 2?

My question is, when will I cross the "overkill" line. I don't spend my days doing intensive 3D render outputs of math computations so I know a 12 core is "too much".

OS X :: IMac Refuses To Sleep After New HD Installation

Mar 26, 2009

My iMac refuses to sleep no matter what sleep preferences I set or even if I try to sleep it manually (apple>sleep). It doesn't do anything. The display doesn't even dim like it used to a week ago. I don't have anything plugged in but the keyboard and regular mighty mouse, and restart doesn't change anything either. The Apple store installed a new hard drive on the computer a few days ago, since the 1.5 year old one randomly crashed and died. So I don't know what kind of funky things they might have changed, I'm just wondering if there's any simple maneuver I can do to make it sleep like it's supposed to!

IMac :: ATI 4850 - Old Leopard Installation

Apr 15, 2009

this is my first posting but I am desperate and need some help Apple could not provide. Here is my situation:

- new iMac 9,1 2,93 GHz, 4 GByte, ATI Radeon 4850
- pre-installed OS: Leopard 10.5.6

I have access to a MBP and an older iMac. The MBP had a defective logic board some months ago so I decided to copy its content (after repair) to an external hard drive. I used this hard drive as my primary OS and used it with the MBP or iMac and did have the same data all the time - excellent time-saver for me. Now the new iMac was shipped yesterday. I tried to boot it from the very same external hard drive as well. It worked but there are some annoying facts I need some help to deal with: I cannot activate sleep mode with the new iMac. The graphics card seems not to work well: stuttering screen saver, slow high definition video playback, slow spaces etc. I cannot dim the monitor's backlight with F1/F2 keys nor the monitor setup. All these problems disappear when I boot from the internal HDD but that is not an option for me. It looks like the "old" Leopard installations lacks of some drivers. Is there a way to add them, is there another solution or will an update of Leopard 10.5.7 - at least most likely - solve the problem? Apple support did not feel the need to help for "exotic configurations". I was told a fresh installation of a retail Leopard copy on an external hard drive COULD work (no guarantee) but it would take me too much time to re-configure and I don't feel the desire to set up my system fresh and new like in old Windows days.
