I just downloaded bootcamp 3.1 to upgrade from 3.0.  I am using Snow Leopard.  is there anything special I have to do run the upgrade version when I open Boot Camp Assistant?? Thank you

Hi everyone
I am running Snow Leopard on my early 2006 MBP.  I just downloaded Boot Camp 3.1 so I can upgrade 3.0.  Is there anything special I need to do to "install" 3.1 so that when I run Boot Camp Assistant it uses 3.1 instead of 3.0?  Thank You.

The Boot Camp 3.1 drivers you downloaded have to be installed in Windows after running Boot Camp Assistant. That update does not apply to Boot Camp Assistant, and as you are using Mac OS X 10.6.8, you are using the most recent Boot Camp Assistant version for Snow Leopard.
Once you have installed Windows with Boot Camp, insert the Snow Leopard DVD in Windows and install the Boot Camp 3.0 drivers. Then, install the Boot Camp 3.1 drivers

  • Will upgrading from Tiger 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard delete programs?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question or answered a million times before, but will upgrading from Tiger 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard stop my existing programs (PhotoShop, Office etc) from running? I've got an Intel MacBook but I've never installed a new OS myself, so any tips gratefully received! Thank you.

    You will lose the ability to work in any Classic OS applications that ran under system 9.
    If I were you, before upgrading do yourself a favor and purchase an external hard drive that you can "clone" your Mac to. If possible, a large enough drive that you can have 2 partitions. In one you would clone your current system and apps. Then after the upgrade, clone again your updated system to the other partition as a emergency backup.
    With the clone of your current set up, if need be you can rebbot to it so that you can use any of your "old" applications.

  • Upgrading from OS 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard

    Hello, I've heard mixed reviews from people at the Apple store to people on the street whether it's possible to upgrade directly from 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard. Below are my specs, and I'd love to hear a second opinion from someone!
    Model Name: Mac Pro
    Model Identifier: MacPro1,1
    Processor Name: Dual-Core Intel Xeon
    Processor Speed: 3 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 2
    Total Number Of Cores: 4
    L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB
    Memory: 2 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.33 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: MP11.005C.B08
    SMC Version: 1.7f10

    You should be able to upgrade the OS X to Snow Leopard with the less costly upgrade DVD
    from Apple; that won't give you the newer iLife, or iWorks, but it would be a full install disc.
    The computer should see an upgrade in RAM, too; 2GB probably is minimal, and this can be
    a concern if you also have a jam-packed hard disk drive and no working free space for the
    system or applications to use the OS X's automatic Virtual Memory, based on available space.
    An upgrade from Tiger 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard will invite issues and problems from third-party
    applications not written to run in the later OS X version; you may have to buy/upgrade them, too.
    • Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard compatibility table = +Which apps work with Mac OS X 10.6?+
    similar forum inquiry/reply:
    Anyway, the upgrade by itself on a new or 'secure erased' HDD may work just fine.
    The hardware upgrade suggested (RAM, larger hard disk drive) would help. Also,
    if there are any pending Firmware updates available, be sure to install them, too.
    Good luck & happy computing!

  • Supported versions of Windows in Boot Camp Assistant 5.1.0

    I was just hoping someone could help me figure out which versions of Windows are supported in Boot Camp Assistant.
    I want to use this to install Windows on a separate partition of my hard drive, and I do not want to use Parallels or other virtual machine software. I only have a copy of Windows XP, which will do what I need it to, and obviously it would be nice to not have to buy a copy of Windows 7 (which is simply over-priced).
    Is there any way to install Windows XP with Boot Camp Assistant, or is Windows 7 the only supported version?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I will look into which one will of those is the one that will work best for me. I tried trial version of them many years ago and was not impressed with any of them. I've read that they are much better with the Intel Chip set. Thanks again Bob.

  • TS3367 My problem is that the other person can hear me but I can't hear them. I have turned the volume up but that did not help.  Is there something that I need to do in the controls for us to hear each other.  Thank you for your input.

    My problem is that when using face time either I can hear the person and they cannot hear me or they can hear me and I cannot hear them.  Is there something I need to do in the controls to take care of this issue?  Thank you for your response.

    Since you sometimes can hear, and sometimes can be heard, your iPad is probably working OK.
    But what about the other parties?  Is it always the same prson who can not hear you?  Is it always the same (but different) person you can not hear?  In other words, the problems could be at the other end.
    You and your friends might try the Skype App.  Once registered, you can access Skype's test server to check your audio.  It lets you speak for several seconds, and then plays it back.

  • Upgrading from tiger (10.4.11) to snow leopard 10.6

    Is buying the box set a MUST to upgrade from tiger to snow leopard?? I just need the update to run a piece of hardware. I don't WANT all that other stuff.

    First you said you had a friend who had the "multi family pack," now you imply this is a family member, so which is it?
    Regardless, what matters is that only persons located in *the same household* can use the same Family Pack license. This is clearly stated at the Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Family Pack - Apple Store (U.S.) web page & in the Snow Leopard EULA pdf. From the store page:
    *About the Family Pack*
    The Family Pack Software License Agreement allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple software on up to a maximum of five (5) Apple-labeled computers at a time as long as those computers are located in the same household and used by persons who occupy that household. By “household” we mean a person or persons who share the same housing unit such as a home, apartment, mobile home, or condominium, including students who are primary residents of that household but reside at a separate on-campus location. This license does not extend to business or commercial users.
    And this information now has also has some form the gentlemen that I am now dealing with to know repair the computer and put is back to a working order.
    I'm sorry but I don't know what this sentence means or how it is supposed to relate to this topic. No Apple tech is going to tell you that you must upgrade to a different version of Snow Leopard to fix anything if you have a legitimately licensed retail copy of that OS -- there is just the one version suitable for those upgrading from Tiger, sold with one of two licenses.

  • Why am I getting an error stating this version of iTunes has not been correctly localized for this language. Please run the English version when I just bought a song yesterday and had no problems

    I have iTunes running on my Windows8 desktop for some while with no problems. Yesterday I purchased a song, deleted a free game app. and upgraded to the most current version of iTunes.  This morning I could not pull up iTunes, so I retored my iTunes to a setting two (2) days ago.  Now, as soon as I try to start iTunes I get a message stating: This version of iTunes has not been correctly localized for this language. Please run the Enclish version OK.  So I hit the OK button and nothing happens.  Please help.

    Hi there GloriaNM,
    You may want to try removing and reinstalling iTunes as an initial troubleshooting step. Take a look at the article below for more information.

  • Upgrade from OS 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard

    Hello. This is first time to post a question, so sorry that I might not get this prefect my first try.
    I have a late 2006 17" Mac. Here are the details:
    Model Name: Mac
    Model Identifier: iMac5,2
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 1.83 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1

    SMC Version: 1.6f0
    I cannot make my iPhone 3GS sync to iTunes without upgrading my OS. Snow Leopard says 3GB of RAM is needed. Do I need to upgrade my RAM to install Snow Leopard? If so, as I am not very comfortable working on computers, should I just take it in to the Apple store and let them do it.
    Thanks for your assistance.

  • Upgrade from Tiger 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard 10.6.5

    I have a MAC desktop with Tiger 10.4.11 and just recently bought another MAC desktop with Snow Leopard 10.6.5. I want to buy the Microsoft Office Home/Student 2011 for MAC 1 user with 3 license. Question: The older 10.4.11 will not support the 2011 edition of Office. I need to upgrade to 10.5.8 or later on the older MAC. How do I do that? Do I buy Snow Leopard and just install it over Tiger? If there are any other programs installed on the older MAC will they stay work with Snow Leopard? Or... do I need to install Leopard and then Snow Leopard? Thanks.

  • Upgrade from OSX 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard/OS X Lion

    I know my operating system is really behind.  Now that OSX lion is out I am very behind in terms of my operating system. Do I need to buy snow leopard first and then lion.  If so can I just buy the leopard upgrade or do I need to buy the box set also?  Thanks for the help I am really clueless about this stuff!

    If your computer meets the requirements you could upgrade to Snow Leopard or Lion, but upgrading to Lion requires that Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later first be installed. You can purchase a Snow Leopard DVD at your local Apple retailer or online for $29 USD.
    How to Install OS X Updates Successfully
    A. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions:
    Boot from your current Tiger Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. Then select Disk Utility from the Installer menu (Utilities menu for Tiger and later.) After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer. Now restart normally. 
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior (4.0 for Tiger) and/or TechTool Pro (4.5.2 for Tiger) to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    B. Make a Bootable Backup Using Restore Option of Disk Utility:
    Open Disk Utility from the Utilities folder.
    Select the destination volume from the left side list.
    Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
    Check the box labeled Erase destination.
    Select the destination volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination entry field.
    Select the source volume from the left side list and drag it to the Source entry field.
    Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    Destination means the external backup drive. Source means the internal startup drive.
    C. Important: Please read before installing:
    If you have a FireWire hard drive connected, disconnect it before installing the update unless you will boot from this drive and install the update on it. Reconnect it and turn it back on after installation is complete and you've restarted.
    You may experience unexpected results if you have installed third-party system software modifications, or if you have modified the operating system through other means. (This does not apply to normal application software installation.)
    The installation process should not be interrupted. If a power outage or other interruption occurs during installation, use the standalone installer (see below) from Apple Downloads to update.  While the installation is in progress do not use the computer.
    D. To upgrade:
    Purchase the Snow Leopard Retail DVD.
    Boot From The OS X Installer Disc:
    Insert OS X Installer Disc into the optical drive.
    Restart the computer.
    Immediately after the chime press and hold down the "C" key.
    Release the key when the spinning gear below the dark gray Apple logo appears.
    Wait for installer to finish loading.
    E. If updating:
    Download and install update(s) 
    Use Software Update, or
    Download standalone updater(s).
    Snow Leopard General requirements
    Mac computer with an Intel processor

  • Will an upgrade from Tiger 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard make me loose programs?

    I have an old 2007 Macbook pro and I need to upgrade from Tiger OS 10.4.11 to either leopard of Snow leopard because my charger broke and the new charger does not work probably in the older laptops unless you firmare update (which I cannot do as my OS is less than 10.5)
    My question is: Will upgrading wipe all the files and programs from my laptop? I have programs that I no longer have the discs, to install them with, for so if they get wiped I will be unable to get them back and they are programs I need on a daily basis. I was just wondering what upgrading from tiger to leopard will actually involve? Will I loose all files/programs so it would be like starting from scratch with a new computer? Or would it not change these things?

    Buy an external drive (or two).
    Clone your system before you begin.
    Repair the drive while at it, Apple First Aid and another 3rd party program.
    Make sure you can boot from your backup clone.
    Apple Restore is part of Disk Utilty or there is SuperDuper, or Carbon Copy Cloner.
    Me, I would take the above precautions. Then I would format your drive with SL DVD, and perform and clean install. Do all the updates. Then use Setup or Migration Assistant.
    Look for threads, there seems to be 4-5 a week at least on Migrating, going from 10.4 or from PPC to 10.6.
    That is the safest. In theory, and YMMV, you could try upgrade in place, but not without backups, and repairing your drive with SL DVD first.

    I have installed Windows 7 into my Macbook Pro 15 inch with Lions as operating system.  (current model with 2.2 GHz i7 processor, 500 GB HD ad 5400 rpm).  When I started with boot camp, the system promped me to create a disc, which I presume is for the drivers for windows 7.  Now windows is intalled.  What do I do with the CD that the system created for me?  Also, why does the system automatically start in Win7 instead of Lion.  I need to pression the option key to have it start in OS X.  I thought it was supposed to be the opposite.

    Insert it while you are in Windows, if it does not autostart run setup.exe.
    Choose your startup disk using Apple>System Preferences>Startup Disk (in OSX) or Control Panel>Boot Camp>Startup Disk (in Windows)
