IMac Freezes in everything other than Windows 7

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My iMac was running Snow Leopard and Windows 7 via Boot Camp successfully with no issues until yesterday. The iMac froze in Snow Leopard and I had to manually reboot by holding down power button.
Since then OS X won't run, Windows is still OK. If I select OS X the iMac freezes on the grey screen. I've tried safe mode and still no joy as it freezes on the grey screen as well.
If I place my OS X 10.6 install disk in the dvd drive it reads the disk, stays on the grey screen and after 2 minutes I then get the Kernel panic screen to reboot. Tried on a 10.5 Install disk in case disk was the problem but it does the same thing (windows install disk works fine, so DVD player OK).
Have also reset PROM and NVRAM. Rebooted machine using cmd S into Linux to check disk and it found no issues.
Anyone got any other ideas. I have a full time machine backup so trashing the hard disk if I could would be OK.

Just managed to get the cmd v command working but only with placing the OS X install disk in. It shows a long list of directories and folders that it tries to find the number of files but it can't count due to missing folder.
I'm wondering if Windows 7 has done something. I would love to get this machine in a position so I can wipe the whole disk as if new and reinstall OS X but as I mentioned before I get the Kernal panic if I place an OS X install disk in

  • IMac freezes with every other click

    I am new to the community and hope to find help for a big problem.
    I run OS Yosemite 10.10.1 on my 2010 iMac 2.93 i7 (upgraded to 12GB RAM a year ago).
    For the past 5 days it gives me the colorful wheel of death almost with every second click. I cannot open a program or search a site or move a file without the iMac freezing up. Just writing these two sentences, it froze twice for about 45 seconds, which is the average, but it can take up to 2 min before the Mac responds again. I have not changed anything on my iMac knowingly in the past few weeks.
    I closed every program I don't need, shut down dropbox, Google Chrome, and any program I can imagine slows down processing speed. I cleaned my desktop, made sure I have 20% space on the HD. Since I am always suspicious of the Microsoft Office programs, particularly Outlook, I logged in with a different user name that does not use these programs. Nothing helps. I used Magician, Disk Utility, Activity monitor to see if anything looks odd, but all seems normal.
    I am not that Mac literate, so I just discovered the Console that seems to log error events. This is what the last 5 min look like; it tells me I had 4000 events logged yesterday. Is this normal?
    Please if anyone can advise what to check, change or do to stop this nuisance that would be awesome.
    Thank You!

    Basic guess:
    Under utilities you have to run the disk doctor to see what is wrong with either your hard drive or backup drive - stop time machine first & check the backup drive first as that is the one that may be damaged.
    Hopefully someone is online now who can post the details -
    Another option is to take it in for repair to apple store or authorized apple dealer (if on warrantee of any kind)

  • TS3581 Having issues with uconnect on everything other than phone calls. No music or maps communication. Any suggestions?

    Is anyone able to get uconnect to work with anything other than the phone calls? Nothing else connects for me.

    Copy your whole iTunes folder from the old computer to the same location on the new one.  It is trying to erase the phone because the phone is synced to the library on the old computer and does not recognize the one on the new computer.  You can transfer purchases from a phone to a computer but otherwise file transfer is one direction, computer to phone.

  • Renaming files with invalid characters in their names on NTFS partitions, introduced by operating systems other than Windows

    Essentially, Linux created some files with colons (:) in the name on a NTFS partition where I have Windows installed. I have since uninstalled Linux, but now I can only view these files in Windows Explorer. I can't open them, I can't even rename them to
    correct the problem. It's as if they don't exist, because of the invalid search paths.
    If I try to rename them in Windows Explorer I get following message.
    The file name you specified is no valid or too long.
    Specify a different file name.
    Well isnt' that something?... isn't that nice? Windows is able to display these files, but it doesn't allow me to open them and it certainly doesn't like me to rename them. So why is it whining about it then, when I'm trying to help? It says "try a different
    file name". Yeah, right! Like I haven't tried that one already! It doesn't matter what file name I input it will never accept it.
    So what am I supposed to do now? Ditch Windows and go back to Linux? Surely, Microsoft doesn't like the sound of that. Sure, I could reinstall Linux or run a Linux live system to correct the problem. But what good is Windows then? I might as well switch to
    Linux altogether.
    After doing some research I now know by fact that it's (kind of) possible to rename files from UNIX and UNIX-like operating systems to those compliant with Windows by using something called file name character translation. To some level this is essential and
    necessary for Windows interoperability with other operating systems (Windows is not the only operating system in the world). But this seems to be very complicated and I can't get my head around it. My brain is in overload. I don't know where to start.
    Once there was a...
    There's the Windows Services for UNIX (SFU) 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5. The first two versions were based on MKS Toolkit, a package licensed by Microsoft from MKS Inc. The later versions were based on the similar Interix product, after Microsoft purchased the company
    that made it.
    Then there's the new Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA). These are services for UNIX components. They are supposed to have Client for NFS v3 included as well. But the server components from the SFU line is missing (e.g. Server for NFS). These are included
    in Server editions of Windows.
    Then there's the Microsoft Knowledge Base article
    289627: "How to Enable File Name Character Translation". This article seems to describe exactly my situation.
    Windows and UNIX operating systems have restrictions on valid characters that can be used in a file name. The list of illegal characters for each operating system, however, is different. For example, a UNIX file name can use a colon (:), but a Windows
    file name cannot use a colon (:). If a UNIX user attempts to create a file with a Windows illegal character on a Windows Services for UNIX network file system (NFS) share, the attempt is unsuccessful and the UNIX client computer receives an input or output
    error.
    It goes further than that. At first glance, this KB article also seems to offer a solution to this exact problem, with examples as shown below.
    For example, the following maps the UNIX colon (:) to a Windows dash (-):
    0x3a : 0x2d ; replace client : with - on server
    I checked these values in charmap.exe and they are correct. Except for 2D not being a "dash", it's rather a hyphen ("hyphen minus" to be exact), but these two have pretty much the same appearance and they get interchanged a lot, I'm sure
    they are used to it by now. (Yes, the characters! They don't mind.)
    Then there's this registry key.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Server For NFS\CurrentVersion\Mapping
    Well, of course, I don't have Server for NFS. So this is a dead end. Well, actually, it was a dead end from the beginning...
    1. First of all, I'm not working with a network share on a NAS or SAN storage. The files are on the local disk drive where Windows is installed, so that's a DAS for you.
    2. I don't have SFU! Well obviously, I'm on Windows Vista! So that means SUA!
    3. SUA are service components only. No server components. Can you guess what that means? Yeah... no "Server for NFS" since it's a server component.
    4. Windows Vista is a client side operating system! Server for NFS is only offered for use with Windows Server systems.
    5. Back to square one!
    So there you have it. They all lived happy for the rest of their lives...
    I'm stuck here. Can someone tell me what to do? I mean beyond the obvious option to use Linux to fixa a Windows problem? The NTFS file system itself supports colons in file names. It's Windows that doesn't, and so by default it proclaims it invalid character.
    Surely, even a Windows client operating system like Windows Vista should be able to allow the user to at least rename files with invalid characters to something more sensible (from the system point of view) and valid, if not being able to open them as they
    are. Just add some crazy voodoo code to it and it will work. If you can make it possible on Windows Server with UNIX user-mode subsystem on NT kernel, then what's stopping you from giving the Windows client system the same benefit?
    So what now? Purchase a Windows Server 2012 R2 license, copy my invalid files to a NAS share with NFS on a UNIX or Linux system, and have a go at the Windows registry and Server for NFS? Yeah... you're right, it's probably a bit over the top...
    On a second thought... I might as well install Linux again. There are countless situations where Linux has helped me solve problems related to, and more often than not caused by Windows.

  • Intel iMac freezes, reboots and other issues

    Intel iMac 17" 1.83 Ghz model (Had for a while now)
    1 GB of 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM installed (Mac detects this fine)
    Mac OS X 10.4.8
    Beginning yesterday, the Mac froze when shutting World of Warcraft (which had been installed and working for at least two months). Computer completely hung. Restarted machine.
    A few minutes later, the machine just switched itself off (or appeared to) - screen goes black. I held in power button for five seconds until I heard a click in the machine. This has happened repeatedly.
    One time, the machine froze and the monitor refreshed at a visible rate (I could see the scan line) - each time the screen got darker.
    Often, it will turn on, but the OS won't load unless I hold Alt down, or if I use OptionAlt+PR.
    Ran disk utility from the install disk, only minor issues, all fixed. The problem of turning off still occurred.
    Nothing in the kernel panic log. Diagnostics in System Profiler is saying it passes on the power on self test.
    The confusing thing is, that after last night, I pulled the plug out, went to bed, praying to the computer fairy to fix it. This morning, it ran fine continuously for about 8 hours, running WoW, IRC app, iTunes etc. all fine.
    Could it be a power supply issue? Is the thing overheating (the Mac is up to date with EFI Firmware update and SFC Firmware update).
    I'm utterly stumped as to what's causing it. I don't want to send the thing off as then I'm without a computer.
    Any ideas or advice?

    Has it done it since?

  • Launching flash panel from menu other than Window - Extensions

    Hey all,
    I've got 2 related questions:
    is it possible to open flash panel (created with Extension Builder) from a custom menu item?
    can I open multiple swf panels by one menu item? all panels would be defined in one manifest.xml in the same bundle
    thanks a lot!

    Yes, and yes.
    You need to create a startup script to create the menu in the startup script. The script can launch as many extensions as you'd like.
    The only straight-forward way I know to launch extensions from an external script, is by invoking the menu item of the panel.
    FWIW, You will probably get better answers on Extension Builder / CS SDK in the CS SDK forum: http://forums.adobe.com/community/creativesuites/cs_sdk

  • Jdev Extension Jar put in a directory other than "JDEV_HOME/jdev/extensions

    I'm creating new rules for auditing using the Jdeveloper 10.1.3 extension API and enabling using extension framework. Once I created the rule, I placed the 'jar' file in "JDEV_HOME/jdev/extensions/" directory as per the guidelines. It is executing perfectly. But I want to place the jar in my home directory. is it possible?
    I mean I place the jar file in my home directory and I will provide classpath in 'extension.xml' file, which is a part of jar file. How can I achieve it?
    The 'jar' file contains
    a) extension.xml
    b) 2 java files
    c) one text file.
    Here extension.xml mention the link of a rule to the audit framework. I used the
    A part of extension.xml file which adds my rule to the framework.

    But no where I found the <libraries> tag in google search.
    b) In "JDEV_HOME/jdev/extensions/" directory we place a jar file which only contains the 'extension.xml' file and we can specify the class path of the jar file, which contains the remaining three files. is it possible? If so pls. show me the pointers to do this.
    Could you pls. suggest me.

    Hi,
    You can install extension jars in your jdevhome extensions directory in addition to the standard OH/jdev/extensions. On platforms other than Windows, this is ~/jdevhome/extensions by default. On Windows and other platforms, the location of the jdevhome directory can be controlled using the environment variable JDEV_USER_DIR.
    Adding an extension jar to one of those two locations is usually sufficient to add it to the classpath of JDeveloper. If you have additional non-extension jars you want to add to JDeveloper's classpath, you can do so using the <classpaths> element in extension manifest. This contains <classpath> elements which are relative paths to jars from the location of the extension jar. For example, say you have
    ~/jdevhome/extensions/my.extension.10.1.3.jar
    and you want to include
    ~/jdevhome/someotherjar.jar
    You would use something like this:
    <extension ...>
      <classpaths>
        <classpath>../someotherjar.jar</classpath>
      </classpaths>
    </extension>Thanks,
    Brian

  • IMac (2008) OS10.6.8 - Main menu freezes when running more than one application at a time.  Apple and 3rd party applications - all freeze the main menu.  Safe mode seems to work OK. Tried repairing permissions - didn't work.

    For the past 60 days I've experienced Main Menu freeze when running more than one application at a time.  iPhoto, Preview, Text Edit, Epson Scan, Firefox and Thunderbird are the apps I use almost daily.  No matter what I do, when more than one is running they will freeze the Main Menu (top of the screen).  I've tried booting is Safe Mode and I don't seem to have a problem.  I've tried several suggestions from repairing permission (DiskUtility) to eliminating specifis login items.  Nothing works. I've posted this issue on the Apple forum several times and no one else has experienced this problem.  I hesitate to take my iMac to the Apple Store or a private Apple repair service until I've exhausted all of my options.  Do I have any more options?    

    Question:  Everytime an app crashes I have the option to report it to Apple - which I usually do.  But I've NEVER reported a Main Menu freeze because it never asks me to
    There's really no need to submit to Apple, it's just a round file cabinet on the other end, especially with 10.6 or earlier.
    This sure sounds like a resource problem...

    Thank you for your detailed question. It sounds like the real issue is pdf files. Are there any antivirus/firewalls that might be blocking this specific file type? or are there any preferences in your control panel that might be blocking this?

  • Suddenly tiny fonts in applicatio​ns other than tiles screen on Windows 8

    I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, Windows 8.1, I’ve had it for about a half a year now. I have  Office 10 pro on it and everything has been working fine. Now (yesterday when I powered up) all of the applications other than the tile screen (opening screen) have gone extremely small (even the arrow on the tiles screen is so small can barely se it . I wish I could report what application I used last before this happened but I can’t. I have McAfee, CCleaner, and Super anti spyware that I use. There really was nothing that I remember that downloaded just before this happened. I looked at the programs in the control panel and nothing appears to have recently updated except Mc Afee The resolution is still at its default settings. I’ve tried to play with the resolution but I just isn’t working.

    I can (Ctrl+ Alt+ Delete) & get the Task Manager. But from there I have no clue what to do with the Task Manager because Win 8 Task Manager seems so different than
    Win 7 task manager in my opinion
    Does it have a More details button?  You would need to use that to get to a more familiar display.   Otherwise it would just look like the old one's Applications tab and without anything running probably appear empty.
    So, your symptom may mean that explorer.exe has stopped running for some reason (though strange I think that it would not try to recover).  Then, you could use TM to try starting it again, or you could use it to try starting other things, e.g. using
    the File, Run... command.   Alt-F, etc.   Or try switching to a different account.  E.g. it may only be a problem with your account, not the whole OS.
