Call Apple's online store's telesales agents: 1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753) or Customer Service and Sales Support at 1-800-676-2775. For Lion you'll get a redemptions code via e-mail and need to DL from the Mac Apple Store (requires SL 10.6.6+).

  • How can I create a start up disk for a old intel core duo running 10.5.8.. Computer works fine, but can't find install disk.

    How can I create a start up disk for a old intel core duo running 10.5.8.. Computer works fine, but can't find install disk. Want to use internal disk drive or USD flash drive.

    Try calling 1-800-676-2775.  Give the serial number and thy *may* still burn you new install disks designed just for the hrdware in your system (for a fee, something like $160 per disk).  *May* is only because they may not burn disks for Leopard anymore.
    If they do not burn them for you, you can buy Leopard disks off Amazon or eBay for about $200.
    Have you considered Snow Leopard?.  Those disks only cost $19 (single user) or $29 (5-user license) through Apple by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE.

  • 2006 iMAC intel core duo Kernel Panic + Black Curtain of Death

    I've had this iMAC since 2006 w/o a problem. Lately been getting the "curtain of death" and screen to restart the computer. Saw similar discussions about these Kernel Panics. Brought the iMAC to Apple Store and tech thought it was a bad logic board and recommended not to fix it ($800+). I have trouble, as did the tech getting it to boot. Today I got it to boot and before it crashed again, I managed to run the Hardware Test from the original OS disc 1. This showed no problem in both tests. Did get the panic log (see below) can anyone make heads or tails of this? Thanks

    If you attempt to boot from an external HD that is set up as a bootable clone and it fails to boot that almost certainly points to the Mac having a hardware. The bootable clone would have had to be setup prior to the failure. Many people (myself included) keep redundant backups, I would recommend doing the same when you have either repaired or replaced the current machine. Macworld runs articles where users describe their own backup strategies, I'd recommend reading them and then deciding which works best for your needs.

  • Imac intel core duo 20" bug graphics

    bonjour,
    jespere que vous comprenez le francais
    j'ai un imac intel core duo 2ghz, 1go de ram dd2 osx 10,4,9
    j'ai un soucis quand je joue a world of warcraft, l'ecran se brouille, ne nombreux traits apparaissent, impossible de voir en fait le jeu correctement, obligé de faire un pomme+m et de revenir en full screen apres, et ca repart.
    sachant que le jeu passe en full quality a 30fps a peu pres, j'ai essayé de tout baissé au niveau qualité et rien a faire.
    je n'est pas eut le temps d'essayer d'autres jeux.
    je n'est pas essayer en redemarrant sous windobe.
    l'ordinateur est encore sous garantie.
    dites moi tout ce que vous savez
    merci d'avance.
    a bientot.

    Depends on how intensive you plan on getting with the iMac. For the most part, it should run pretty well. When the Adobe products become universal they should fly. I currently run all the same software plus Maya on my iMac G5 2.1 GHZ w/o a problem, so they should run just as well on the intel (more so when all apps become universal). I actually plan on selling the G5 and picking up the intel version so I can run boot camp and 3D Max as as well.

  • IMac Intel Core Duo: Which Install DVD disks should I be looking for?

    I have an iMac Intel Core Duo (2 Ghz, 20") model. This was sent to me from Apple as a replacement for my iMac G5 when it had problems a couple years ago. I just realized today that they did not send me OS install disks for it; I still have the iMac G5 install disks though.
    What iMac install disks should be looking for to purchase? Are they specific to an Intel Core Duo? Would any iMac Intel installation disk work?
    Thanks in advance.

    You may be able to contact Apple and have them provide a replacement set for a nominal fee.
    If it's the Core Duo white iMac from +early 2006+, it came with Tiger (10.4). Therefore, you can get install Leopard or the current Snow Leopard on it. You just need the standard retail disc.
    Would any iMac Intel installation disk work?
    Usually, installation discs that come with Macs (the grey ones) only work with that specific Mac model. A retail disc (the ones that are sold separately) will work with any supported Mac model.
    There is another difference. The disc that is included with Macs also have additional bundled apps, such as the iLife suite. The original included disc for your iMac would have iLife '06, which is two versions old, so it may not be that much of a benefit today (iLife '09 is the current version).

    My 5 yr old 2 GHz Intel Core Duo 20" iMac, right after I disconnected
    an external HD that had been on the desktop (i.e. I forgot to eject it

    The graphics card is an ATI Radeon X1600. Is this reasonably
    replaceable? If so, is the "MPC ClientPro 434 All In One ATI MXM X1600
    PCIe 128MB Video Card" I found on eBay (for $25, used) essentially the
    same unit?
    My soldering skills are, sadly, poor.

    not have a Core 2 Duo processor, it will not be able to enter the
    "Lion" generation.

  • EA Game (Harry Potter Deluxe Edition) will not play on iMac Intel Core Duo

    I have repeatedly tried opening the EA/Aspyr Harry Potter games (Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets) on my iMac intel core duo. It fails to open, with all attempts ending in a window that tells me it has failed and offering the option to cancel, retry, or report problem to Apple. This occurs with both discs/games. Is the software simply not advanced enough for the new iMac? Has anyone opened this at all?
    PowerBook G4   Mac OS X (10.4.7)  

    They are both Aspyr ports of EA games. I've run both on my G4 Macs in the past but can't comment on their compatibility with the Intel processor.

    Hello royalaqua,
    I do think you should ask yourself if upgrading to Lion is the right course to take.
    Snow Leopard is an excellent OS and Lion has literally been frozen out after barely a year.   Remember too that some of your apps may not work with Lion (those that have Rosetta, for example) so that could mean more new purchases.   Plus you may need to uprate your RAM too.

  • External Drive Recommendations for iMovie '09 and iMac Intel Core Duo

    I just got a new iMac Intel Core Duo, and loading up on 4 gig of Ram. Going to get an external drive to house video footage, and wondering if this model might be ok. I understand firewire is usually better than usb drives, but am looking at one that is USB 2.0 with of speeds up to 480 Mbps and transfer rates up to 1.5 Gbps. Claims it's almost twice as fast as FireWire 800.
    Would this work well for iMovie, editing HD footage?
    Thanks in advance for your replies.

  • Imac intel core duo random shutdown

    My iMac 2006 (late) intel core duo 2ghz shuts down regularly after brief periods of activity. As soon as I turn it on, the HD fan spins at around 5000rpm according to istat pro. All other fan speeds and temperatures are normal.I need to unplug it for at least an hour in order to successfully boot up again, an then the same thing happens over again. A new HD was recently installed with the Mac OS extended (journaled) scheme on , and someone mentioned it should have been as GUID scheme. Can that be a possible culprit ? I dusted it all out, changed the ram for new and even changed the power cord.

    it should have been as GUID scheme
    Yes - any Intel Mac needs to be GUID partition scheme in order to be bootable. So, if yours boots up without a problem, then it should be ok. Check Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities).
    What OS version are you running? I'd suggest booting from your disks (not knowing which version I can't be specific - but one should have AHT (Apple Hardware Test) included. See these instructions on how to run it (use the extended test) and post any messages or results you get:

    What is a recommended decompression software for a non-Lion compatible MacBook Pro 1,1 2 GHz Intel Core Duo running OS X Version 10.6.8?

    My thanks to you and all other respondents.  In backing up "theVault" App I thought that my ancient version of Stuffit was inadequate to unzip the backup file.  I attempted to download the latest Zipit version which only works with Lion.  After upgrading to Stuffit 9 I realized that theVault backup file was encrypted so as to not open on the backup Mac.  One must restore to the iPhone where is does open.
    My apologies for the imprecise post.  I am finding limitations with not being able to install Lion on my early MacBook Pro.  I can recommend theVault to those looking for a password App with secure backup.

  • Quark 6.5 crashes when opening existing files on iMac Intel Core Duo

    I just switched from a G4 titanium laptop to an Intel iMac and Quark works fine except when I try to open a file that I created on the laptop (same Quark 6.5). It crashes. I talked to Quark and they said that I need to open the files on a PC and resave (I don't have a PC or a friend with a PC and Quark not that I'd send them all my files even if I did). I've tried resaving and renaming files with no luck. I tried reinstalling both the operating system and Quark (both 6 and 6.5) with no luck. Has anybody else had this problem and found a work around? I want to sell my laptop but I can't until I know I can access the hundreds of client files I have there.
    iMac Intel Core Duo   Mac OS X (10.4.6)  

    Sorry I have no real experience with this, just a thought. Did you use migration assistant to move the old files over from your G4 to your Intel? And did you then perform a "Repair Disk Permissions" upon the entire hard drive from within Disk Utility's "First Aid" panel? (located at Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility)
    If the file move still is causing you a problem afterwards, you could try and work around it by moving the files in a different way. As a test, create a small file on the G4 and then email it to yourself from the G4. Receive that message into the Intel and see if the Intel can then open the file from inside Mail. This might avoid any "bias" created during the move from old to new Mac.

  • IMac Intel Core Duo Hard Drive Replacement

    I may need to replace my iMac (Intel Core Duo) HD soon; I'm wondering whether the Geek Squad does work on Macs. Also, is this something a person can do themselves with good directions, or is that risky. I've put in memory, but think the HD is probably a step up. I have everything backed up and would get all my stuff back on HD myself. Has anyone had experience with Mac repair here?
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    Welcome, Selia!
    We certainly do work on Macintosh computers.  The criteria is: "Is the part user-serviceable?"  We would need to sendthe unit in for upgrade to our repair center if it is not something Apple has in their DIY section of their website.  This is toensure consistency and to avoid any issues if still under warranty. Typically only Mac Book laptop hard drives areserviceable in the store.
    Either way, I recommend letting an Agent assist you in the store.  Let us know if you need further answers.
