IMac (Intel) :: Can Upgrade From 10.5.8 To Snow Leopard

Aug 29, 2014

So i have an Imac from around 2006, id IMac 7,1 with no upgrades, just the basic. Its currently on 10.5.8 software (Leopard), but i do have the dvd disc for snow leopard (10.6). Is it possible to upgrade the software on the mac, as i heard it wasnt from a friend. Also if i can use the disc to upgrade, what would happen to all the programmes (e.g word, photoshop) and pictures, videos etc. or would it be totally fine?

Intel Mac :: Sound Gone After Snow Leopard Upgrade

May 24, 2012

I just upgraded (finally) to Snow Leopard on my 24" iMac. After a couple days the sound just disappeared. Everything seems to function correctly - preferences are correct, volume control works, etc - but nothing comes out of the speakers. Sound restores on reboot, but disappears within an hour or so.

OS X :: Leopard Upgrade To Snow Leopard ... The Same As The Full Version Of Snow Leopard?

Jun 13, 2009

... long time reader, first time poster!! So I'm doing it. I'm switching from PC to Mac. I've been waiting for a while now and the new MacBook Pro's have convinced me. I'm buying the 13 inch this week.

However I'm slightly worried about the upgrade to Snow Leopard in September.

My question is if I buy a new MacBook Pro this week and upgrade from the current version of Leopard to Snow Leopard will it be the EXACT same as the version of Snow Leopard that ships with new MacBooks after September?

Is the upgrade just the same as the full software version available post September? Does the upgrade it just detect if you have the previous software and installs as if it were the full? Or does it just "patch" things depending on what's different from previous versions?

I can wait till after Snow Leopard is released in September 09 if it is different to Leopard upgraded to Snow Leopard.

Applications :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard Or Install Snow Leopard?

Oct 4, 2010

I'm currently using a MBP 13 inch and am running Leopard on it.

I just bought a copy of snow leopard today but i don't know if I should do a direct upgrade from leopard to snow leopard, or wipe my MBP and do a fresh install so i have snow leopard on a clean slate.

Have any of you tried the second option before? Or do any of you have advice on which path I should take?

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 :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard/any Need To Upgrade Your RAM?

Aug 30, 2009

I am curious about the system requirement of Snow Leopard. Since the performance and speed are better on SL, I think Snow Leopard will consume a little bit more resource of our macs., although I know Snow Leopard is just only the refinement of the software.

So, my question is that WILL YOU UPGRADE YOUR RAM OF YOUR MAC?

IMac (Intel) :: Screen Is White With No Spiral And Apple Logo - Snow Leopard OS X 10.6.8

Dec 11, 2014

Why is my  Snow Leopard OSX 10.6.8 IMac screen all white when I turn it on?  There is no spiral and no Apple logo and the desktop does not appear.  The screen is just white.  

Prior to this, we had a wind storm in our area with some power glitches today.  After one of them, the dock items disappeared and just the wallpaper was there. The colored spinner began going around when I clicked on the mouse but nothing was happening.   I unplugged it to try to reset it, but now the screen comes up all white, there's no apple logo that appears at start up and that's it.  Now what should I do?

OS X :: Mac Mini Leopard To Snow Leopard Unique Upgrade?

Jun 10, 2010

My brother and parents have a Mac Mini each.

They have not the latest generation but the prior Intel generation -- that shipped with Leopard.

Being the family IT guy, last time I was in town I purchased the Snow Leopard retail DVD family pack upgrade and upgraded my parents machines to Snow Leopard. I couldn't upgrade my brother's mini because he had it away at school.

Now he is back at my parents house (as am I) and I was all set to upgrade his machine to Snow Leopard but I can't find the retail install disk I purchased.

However, I do have the Snow Leopard Mac Mini OSX install DVD that shipped with my recently purchased (latest generation) Mac Mini.

Question -- does anyone know if I could use this latest generation Snow Leopard Mac Mini system install DVD (the one that shipped with my mac Mini) to upgrade my brother's previous generation mac mini running Leopard to snow leopard.

Not looking to do a clean install but rather the upgrade.

Anyhow ever tried this? I obviously don't want to upgrade his previous generation machine with drivers, etc. for my latest generation --- rather JUST get his leopard upgraded to snow leopard.
