I have bought a 2nd hand late 2008 macbook air and can't install iPhoto as it requires update 10.9 or higher i can't seem to update any further than 10.7.5 help???

I have bought a 2nd hand late 2008 macbook air and can't install iPhoto as it says it requires update 10.9 or higher i can't seem to update any further than 10.7.5 can anyone help please???

Thankyou for your response... being new to this i have had a look and it says the following
This system can run the last version of OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" as well as the current version of OS X 10.9 "Mavericks," but does not support the AirDrop, AirPlay Mirroring, or Power Nap features. It is not supported booting into 64-bit mode when running Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard." It does support "OpenCL" and Grand Central Dispatch introduced with Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard."
Please note that OS X "Lion" 10.7 and subsequent versions of OS X, like Mountain Lion and Mavericks, are not capable of running Mac OS X apps originally written for the PowerPC processor as these operating systems do not support the "Rosetta" environment. To run PowerPC applications on this Mac, it will be necessary to use Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" or earlier
what do i do next
Thankyou once again for your reply

  • I have bought a 2nd hand iPod Touch

    I have bought a 2nd hand iPod Touch ( told it was 3rd Gen, IOS  1.1.5) I have no APP STORE and cannot see how to add apps to the iPod Touch
    I can connect through Itunes via the PC but cannot seem to find a way to add apps to it.
    I've tried a Factory reset/upgrade and nothing has changed. If i try to connect to Itunes via the iPod Touch , even though I have a good internet connection, I get "Cannot connect to iTunes Store"

    You have the original (1G) iPod touch. Those can go as high as 3.1.3 that you get here:
    Purchasing iOS 3.1 Software Update for iPod touch (1st generation)       
    https://buy.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/touchLegacyLandingPage
    You can confirm since the 1G does not have volume buttons on the upper left edge.
    Identifying iPod models
    You need iOS 2 or later for apps.
    There are not that many apps now compatible. To more easily find them:

  • I'm running Lion on a Late 2008 MacBook Air.  With no other applications running, I can no longer Check for Software Updates.  It gets abut half way through the checking process and then freezes.  The MBA passes Disk Utility. Thoughts?

    How long do you leave it?
    Mine can sometimes sit for quite a while (maybe 10 minutes??) before it finally finishes.
    You could look at the relevant logs via Console (Utilities folder) to see if Software Update is complaining about anything.

    Use the trackpad to scroll, thats what it was designed for. The scroll bars automatically disappear when not being used and will appear if you scroll up or down using the trackpad.
    This is a user-to-user forum and most people will post on here if they have problems. You very rarely get people posting to say there update went smooth. The fact is the vast majority of Mountain Lion users will not be experiencing any major problems with the OS, or maybe with apps which are not compatible, but thats hardly Apple's fault if developers don't update their apps.

  • Hello, I own a macbook air and I deleted the iPhoto app by mistake, I cant re download it now, do you have any answer for me how to do it?

    That's an App Store problem not an iPhoto one. That forum is here

    but perhaps you just need to try again later, as the message says.

  • Just updated from a late 2008 Macbook Pro and I am getting a blink on my external screen

    I just upgraded from a late 2008 Macbook Pro with a  AMD Radeon HD 6770M 1024 MB graphics card and I am now getting a blink (black screen) every few seconds.
    Anyone know a fix.
    Thanks

    You could always give it a shot - the only problem that you might run into is that the the early 2011 might not boot when the hard drive is swapped from the 2008 hard drive. Some versions of OS X are simply not compatible between different models.
    But it's worth a try...

  • Can I take the hard drive from a late 2008 MacBook Pro and put it in an Early 2011 MacBook Pro?

    I just got a new 15" MBP and I want to give my older one to my son. The "older" one is an Early 2011.  My son has the Late 2008 model. My brother will take the 2008 MBP once I've moved all my son's stuff to the 2011.  Here's the question. My son has a 750GB hard drive on the 2008. He has partitions on it for Boot Camp and for his games. The 2011 only has a 500GB hard drive. Rather than erasing the 2011, restoring it from Time Capsule, then setting up Boot Camp and the other partitions all over again, or even using Winclone or something like that, can I just swap the hard drives? It would certainly faster and easier. I just wonder if there is a technical reason why I shouldn't do that.

  • Late 2008 Macbook Air Hinge Problem

    Hi guys, I bought a used Macbook Air a few months ago, I absolutely love it. However the hinge has been getting kinda loose, to the point where the screen will start to fall backwards if the laptop is moved at all. I am told Apple replaces the hinges for out of warranty Macbook Airs, but this one has dents in the corners from previous owners, although it is in good condition overall. The Apple store is very far from me, is it still worth my time to bring it in or is that automatically considered user damage?
    Thanks!
    RIP STEVE!

    Maybe, but not conclusively. Try it again, but for security I would make a backup if you don't already have one.
    If the drive cannot be repaired this way, then you should erase the drive and reinstall OS X:
    Install or Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion from Scratch
    Be sure you backup your files to an external drive or second internal drive because the following procedure will remove everything from the hard drive.
    Boot to the Recovery HD:
    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    Erase the hard drive:
      1. Select Disk Utility from the main menu and click on the Continue button.
      2. After DU loads select your startup volume (usually Macintosh HD) from the left side list. Click on
          the Erase tab in the DU main window.
      3. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.) Optionally, click on the Security button and set the Zero
            Data option to one-pass. Click on the Erase button and wait until the process has completed.
      4. Quit DU and return to the main menu.
    Reinstall Lion: Select Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion and click on the Install button.
    Note: You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest using Ethernet if possible because it is three times faster than wireless.
    If this doesn't work then the drive should be replaced.

  • 15" (late 2008) macbook pro and 30" cinema display??

    Im looking to buy one of the new macbook pros, and I know that you need the$100 dual link cable to get it to work with the older apple displays.
    With that cable what is the max resolution I will get on a 30" cinema display?
    The max res for the 30" is 2560 x 1600 pixels, but I have heard that you may not be able to get real high rez with the 15"
    anyone know, I would appreciate the help....
    -bill

    You'll get 2560 x 1600 - that's the max resolution of the display, and it's the max resolution of dual-link DVI (at least, at the standard refresh rate).

  • My late 2008 macbook aluminum wont boot or install

    macbook wont boot and when i try to install of cd it fails ive restored and erased my drive then tried agian with no luck. I tried a different osx install cd and the same thing occured i waited an hour and it failed. tried calling apple support and the 60 dollars for phone support that i did by my self just to have fail anyway. I need this macbook for school work and editing projects

    Welcome to the Apple discussions.
    Your description of the symptoms/issue is a little vague, but lets start with the Apple hardware test. Reboot holding the D key down. If the Apple hardware test starts up, choose the extended test. If it doesn't start up, then insert the first OS X disk that came with the system (should say AHT Version x.x in small print on the label) and reboot holding the alt/option key down. Choose the Apple hardware test. If you have either of the TechTool programs, they can do similar testing. Does that identify any hardware issues?
    If the AHT doesn't call out any issues, it could be a hard drive that's going/gone bad. When you boot from an OS X disk, if you run Disk Utility and repair the hard drive, what happens? When you erased the hard drive, did you do a secure erase, writing zero's to the disk?

  • HT4623 tried to up grade my i-pad to ios7, now i have ended up with a white  condition notice on my i-pad with a grey back ground which is find my ipad ios7, i cannot seem to move any further

    First thing to try is to reset your device. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart.

  • I have bought a second hand ipod 4, but it has the previous owners details all over it, for example it has her email address when trying to update facebook.  How do I update it with my email address?

    I have just purchased a second hand ipod touch 4.  The previous owners details are still in it, so for example when I try to update the facebook app it asks me for the previous owners password, and shows the previous owners email address.  How do I change it all to my details?  I have already synced it with itunes and all of my music is now in it, and it's also renamed on the itunes page when I attach the ipod to my PC.  I've also been in to the 'info' page, 'Advanced' and then 'Replace information on this ipod with mail accounts from this computer' then finally 'apply', but it still has the other persons ID.

    I've answered my own question!  I now understand that you can't use apps as they are always going to be linked to the original owner.  I've since deleted the app and downloaded it again, and all is now well!

  • After updating to the ios5, my ipad keeps restoring when i plug it into itunes.  I can't sync it or anything, and it has been restored about 20 times today and i can't get any further than that.  Please help!
