I own a Mac book Pro 13" it has a 250 gb solid state drive and I would like to put a larger one in is this possible.

You don't need to partition your drive to run Fusion, only if you want to run Bootcamp.
If you have space on your Windows partition, I would suggest you backup your Windows partition, and then, delete the partition using Disk Utility.
You can now restore your virtual machine to a single volume or repartition if you prefer.
I would consider upgrading to a unibody MBP (used, refurbished will do) just to be able to access the HD. Opening the pre-unibody MBP is not something you would want to do.

  • I have an '09 mac book pro with an iDVD 7.1.2 (1158) and I'm having trouble DVD burning.

    I have an '09 mac book pro with an iDVD 7.1.2 (1158) and I'm having trouble DVD burning. I attempted to burn a DVD but the following error message appeared - 'Burning preparation error. Not enough free disk space for encoding the remaining assets. iDVD needs 6,541 GB of disk space to encode the remaining assets, but only 2,179 GB is available at "Macintosh HD". I've moved several items over to an external hard drive but this error message remains. How do I save this movie to the preferred external hard drive?

    You can move the iDVD project file to the EHD but you still need plenty of free space on your boot drive for encoding.
    It's strongly recommended that a minimum of 20-25 GB of free space be maintained on the boot drive.  Otherwise you'll run into what you're experiencing and increased encoding times.

  • I have my Mac Book Pro with the OS Yesomite since a month and I am feeling that my mac is getting slower than before a month. I want to install OS Lion on my mac.  I think i have a DVD of OS Lion which comes when i bougnt Mac laptop in 2011.

I want to install OS Lion on my mac.  I think i have a DVD of OS Lion which comes when i bougnt Mac laptop in 2011. Should i install OS Lion? What wil happen if i install OS Lion, do i lost my Applications or ...????

    Hi, the last install dvd that came out for mac's was Snow Leopard,10.6.3. Lion is a download from apple. You cannot just install it over Yosemite. You would have to backup your drive to save files you want and do a clean install. You might want to look into getting more memory. You can run 8 Gig"s of memory on your Macbook Pro.If your Macbook Pro is getting really slow you might want to download EtreCheck  and then post the results here.http://www.etresoft.com/etrecheck  Check out this article.  http://support.apple.com/kb/PH19031

  • I have a new Mac Book Pro with Retina, and Keynote crash almoset every time i use it?

    I have a new Mac Book Pro with Retina, and Keynote crashes almoset every time i use it? I have the newest update.
    Could you please help me? I have a lot of Keynote shows, and I have to use it now!!
    I have saved a crash report, if you need it.

    Apple will not write back to you. Telephone using the Apple Care phone number appropriate for your country and ask for a refund, if that is what you want to do.
    I use Keynote everday, it does exactly what it says it will do,  that is if your NOT using Mountain LIon.
    There are many applications available
    I have used MS PowerPoint professionally for many years on both Windows and Mac, I can assure you it can do everything that Keynote can do and very much more.
    Which software you choose depends on who you are and who you are presenting to.
    for interactive presentations look at:
    PowerPoint
    Adobe Flash
    Adobe Director
    Camtasia
    Dreamweaver (an HTML application)
    for simple photo slide shows:
    iPhoto
    iMovie
    Picasa
    Photomagico
    Adobe Lightroom

  • I have a 2010 Mac Book Pro with OS 10.7.5. How do I upgrade to 10.8 (Mountain Lion)?

    I have a 15" Mac Book Pro purchased new in 2010. I'm currently on 10.7.5 and would like to upgrade to 10.8, which I think is Mountain Lion. Am I correct? and how do I do that? I can only find info on upgrade to Mavericks.
    I have been advised by my local Authorized Apple Repair tech that I should not upgrade to Mavericks until I complete the migration of my HUGE website from iWeb to another software (wordpress). He tells me Mavericks doesn't work well with iWeb because that software is going away.
    I'm also concerned about the news about the problem with the shell called Bash and want to protect my laptop by getting any fix for that problem.

    All recent versions of Mac OS X use bash, so avoiding Mavericks won't help you with that problem (which isn't a problem for most users).
    iWeb is another matter. My advise: migrate your website to Wordpress first and start thinking about upgrades later.

  • I have a new Mac Book Pro with iLife 11 that does not contain iDVD, where can I buy it?

    I worked since 7 years on a iBook G4 and made hundreds of DVD with iLife. When I bought the Mac Book Pro at the Apple Store they told me that iLife 11 does no more contain iDVD but it works differently. Now I miss this software that was easy to work on. I couldn't fint it at the App.store. Where can I find it?

    Make a couple of phone calls.
    iDVD is a “Must Have".   (Yes, it should be included.)
    Call Apple they will sent out iDVD at no charge.
    800-692-7753
    800-275-2273
    Most people report that by asking here:   http://www.apple.com/feedback/idvd.html
    or here:   http://www.apple.com/contact/
    they got a free copy of iDVD.
    If that doesn't work you can purchase iLife 11 on disk (don't get the download) for about $39.

  • I have a new mac book pro with osx 10.8.1 and it will not upgrade to 10.2

    my new mac book pro retina 13" came with os mountain lion 10.8.1 and it will not let the app store upgrade it to 10.2 and will not let applications for 10.2 upgrade either.  it keeps saying that mountain lion is not compatable with this device.

    Your computer needs a special OS X version that it hasn't been launched. Wait until Apple releases it

  • I have a 2008 Mac Book Pro with 2gb of memory and it wont let me install mountain lion or mavericks...why not?

    I cannot get Lion to install on my 2008 Mac Book pro.  It has 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM of memory and has a  2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor.  Is there still something that I am missing?

    OS X 10.9.4 is the current release of the operating system. Older versions are not available from the app store. Does your system meet the requirements for OS X 10.9?

  • I have 5 pictures of my house and i would like to put them all into one

    Can someone please help me.  I have 5 pictures of my house (rooms) saved on my computer and I was wondering if there is a way that I could combine them and make them all into one picture.  I have done it where I can do before and after pictures where you combine two pictures into one, but in that case I had to double the size of the canvass and than shrink the image size.  I was wondering how would you do 5 pictures as it only lets me put two pictures.  Please help me out.

    Photo Collage Toolkit
    Photoshop scripting is powerful and I believe this package demonstrates this A video showing a 5 image collage PSD template  being populates with images:
    The package includes four simple rules to follow when making Photo Collage Template PSD files so they will be compatible with my Photoshop scripts.
    Size the photo collage templates for the print size you want - width, height and print DPI resolution.
    Photo collage templates must have a Photoshop background layer. The contents of this layer can be anything.
    Photo collage templates must have alpha channels named "Image 1", "Image 2", ... "Image n".
    Photo collage templates layers above the background layers must provide transparent areas to let the images that will be placed below them show through.
    There are twelve scripts in this package they provide the following functions:
    TestCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to test a Photo Collage Template while you are making it with Photoshop.
    CollageTemplateBuilder.jsx - Can build Templates compatible with this toolkit's scripts.
    LayerToAlphaChan.jsx - Used to convert a Prototype Image Layer stack into a template document.
    InteractivePopulateCollage.jsx - Used to interactively populate Any Photo Collage template. Offers most user control inserting pictures and text.
    ReplaceCollageImage.jsx - use to replace a populated collage image Smart Object layer with an other image correctly resized and positioned.
    ChangeTextSize.jsx - This script can be used to change Image stamps text size when the size used by the populating did not work well.
    PopulateCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to Automatically populate a Photo Collage template and leave the populated copy open in Photoshop.
    BatchOneImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Collage templates that only have one image inserted. The Collage or Image may be stamped with text.
    BatchMultiImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Any Photo Collage template with images in a source image folder. Easier to use than the interactive script. Saved collages can be tweaked.
    BatchPicturePackage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Any Photo Collage template with an image in a source image folder
    PasteImageRoll.jsx - Paste Images into a document to be print on roll paper.
    PCTpreferences.jsx - Edit This File to Customize Collage Populating scripts default setting and add your own Layer styles.

    Hello psadana,
    Thank you for the details of the issue you are experiencing with Wi-Fi on your MacBook Pro.  I would be concerned about this too.

  • I have a Mac Book Pro with a 320 gig hdd and my drive is corrupted and I can't engage it. So I would like to switch to a 1 terabyte drive can this be done?

    I have a Mac Book Pro with a 320hdd, 2.33 processor, 8 gigs of RAM and  OS X 10.9.4 .  My hdd crashed and I cannot access it so is it possible to install a 1 terabyte drive with the operating software already installed and also upgrade my RAM to 16 gigs?

    If I were you I'd install a small SSD as the boot drive from OWC:
    http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/SSD/OWC
    Then put a second large conventional drive either in the optical bay (Data Doubler) or in an external.
    You don't say which MBP you have: Size, CPU type.
    Also when you upgrade you could see if you can salvage your data from your old HD. Can you hear it spin up? If so Data Rescue IV.

    A PowerPC Mac, if that's what it is, won't be able to see an Intel Mac's formatted data.  Also ExFat formatting is not supported by 10.6.3 or earlier.  I would try viewing the backup on another Intel Mac with at least 10.6.4.  If it isn't there, then the backup never really took place.  I much profer a hard drive with Carbon Copy Cloner.

  • I have a Mac book pro with 2 users myself and my husband I loaded pics from our camera onto my user page does anyone know how to view these pics from my husbands login page can I transfer some of my library to his login page

    I have a Mac book pro with iPhoto updated to iPhoto 11 we have 2 users on our Mac myself and my husband.  I recently loaded all of our pictures from a recent trip into iPhoto under my login screen.  Can these photos also be transferred into my husbands iPhoto library under his login screen ?  I want to transfer some not all of them and already deleted them from the camera card.

    Use iPhoto Sharing.
    If you want the other user to be able to see the pics, but not add to, change or alter your library, then enable Sharing in your iPhoto (Preferences -> Sharing), leave iPhoto running and use Fast User Switching to open the other account. In that account, enable 'Look For Shared Libraries'. Your Library will appear in the other source pane.
    Any user can drag a pic from the Shared Library to their own in the iPhoto Window.
    Remember iPhoto must be running in both accounts for this to work.
