Migrating from G5 OS 10.4.11 PPC to  iMac running Leop. on Intel - problems

Can anyone tell me what problems I will encounter migrating my G5 PPC to a brand new Intel iMac? Various forums give me conflicts (some of the ppc apps will run just fine, some will need to be re-installed [though good luck finding all of the install discs for a 4 year old computer], some won't work at all...)
I am particularly concerned about having to buy new Logic Studio, MS Office, etc. Someone in the Apple store told me that I may be able to download patches, though I haven't seen any in a google search...
Any help/advice/experiences?

After scanning numerous posts on this same topic, virtually all of which wind up with a reference to this same "Basic Guide for Migrating to Intel Macs," I've got to say -- huh??? I can't get ANY of the recommendations in this "basic guide" to work for me. I've been trying for 10 hours and nothing works. Migration Assistant says the connection has been dropped. Trying to sync through MacMe/.Mac just hangs the PowerPC. I can't even get either Mac to allow the other to mount its disk. Yet, both Macs are networked (one with Ethernet hardwire, the other wireless) and talk to the net fine. They just won't talk to each other. I'm about ready to pack my brand new MacBook Pro back up and return it. Whatever happened to ease of use??? That's why I bought Macs in the first place (way back in 1985). Isn't there any really basic, step-by-step guide to accomplishing this supposedly simple set up?

  • MIGRATE FROM A POWER PC G5 TO A NEW IMAC - PROGRAMS & FILE - POSSIBLE?

    I recall when I migrated from a Windows machine to a MAC years back I was able to move programs & files via (probably at that time) USB.
    I want to buy a new IMAC & move everything from a 4 year old Power PC G5 without having to reinstall all programs &/or manually drag & drop files.
    Is this posisble?
    I do have a LaCie HardDrive & have been using SuperDuper to back up everything since I had problems with ths machine months ago but I do admit I have cut down on this as I have over 700,000 files and the backups take hours & really slow machine down. Plus I notice the LaCie drive turns on even when it is not set up to do a back-up.
    But mostly want to know fastest way to get everything form one machine to a new one.
    There's software I have downloaded or can't find.
    Thanks.

    You can use Migration Assistant which will come with your new machine, or you can use an ethernet cable and drag and drop what you need, or you can reverse clone from your SuperDuper backup.

  • Migration of mail from PPC G5 iMac w/ Tiger to Intel iMac w/ Snow Leopard

    The migration was largely successful in that all my mailboxes from the old computer have appeared on the new one. The only thing I cannot do on the new iMac is delete some of the messages that have just arrived on the new iMac. They had NOT previously been downloaded to the old computer. The error message is this: the destination mailbox "(null)" does not allow messages to be moved to it.
    I already have the mailbox behaviours set to delete messages from the server once I have downloaded them. I have also tried moving the mail.plist to the desktop, quitting Mail and then restarting it, both to no avail. Any help would be most welcome. Thank you.

    I can move messages between mailboxes in On My Mac, and I have made an important, and helpful discovery. I have 4 active POP mail accounts, each obviously with its own e-mail address. In Snow Leopard, but not in Tiger, this seems to result in having 4 different sub Trash mailboxes, each of them corresponding to one of the 4 active mail accounts. By using the Move to command, as you suggested, I am able to "delete" an e-mail, PROVIDING I specify which of the 4 different Sub Trash mailboxes I wish to move it to. This was not necessary in Tiger as the Trash mailbox was a single integrated Trash mailbox and not compartmentalized so as to correspond to the 4 active mail accounts.
    So I do now have a "work-around" that works, but having to select the Move to command on a drop-down menu and then select which of the 4 Trash mailboxes to delete the messages to is an incredibly long way round of deleting e-mail. Surely there must be a simpler way of deleting e-mail in Snow Leopard if one has more than one active mail account. Any more suggestions would be very welcome although I am about to go travelling for 10 days and won't have much access to the internet during that time.

  • HT4796 does the migrate from pc to mac work? I have been running it for 20 hours and it looks to hung up on still copying my music and i dont have that much.

    Need help on the migration back up?

    Karsten,
    Most interesting reply and I certainly appreciate the sample illustration -- it's most helpful. However, I have this effect enabled and what happens is quite odd. Let me explain a little better as maybe I didn't word it correctly. Here's what occurs...
    1- Before the slide transitions to the next slide, it becomes fuzzy (not part of the transition itself which comes after)
    2- After the fuzziness the slide sort of notches upward a hairline before the transition. Thus, here it is: Normal Slide > Fuzziness > Notch > Transition > Normal Slide -- repeats.
    Side Note: I noticed on my daughter's DVD player, the side would do the above, but would know go a step further. the imposed soundtrack would actually pause for a split second (in addition to the above) before the transition itself.
    I called mac and was offered some studio 4 pro, and when I looked at the price I almost fainted ($999.99) which is quite steep for me and certainly more software than I need. That said, I'm looking into iMovie as an alternative (iDVD would have been great and fast on the work-flow), but I need to come up with a system using my Mac as I may have a wedding coming within the next several months. Before I offer this service, I need to learn the Mac (which I love) and the software of choice. I went to a local book store and purchased this book:
    http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/isbn=9780470502129/
    hopefully it will help me.

  • Mail "unexpectedly quits" after migration from snow leopard to new iMac running Mountain Lion

    Mail "unexpectedly quits" after migration from snow leopard time machine files to new iMac running Mountain Lion.  I can run connection doctor OK.  But the activity window is blank.   If you try to open message viewer window then mail program crashes.  Would really like to get my old emails back as the old imac is totally dead.  Thanks for any help. 

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Step 1
    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left.
    Enter the name of the crashed application or process in the Filter text field. Post the messages from the time of the last crash, if any — the text, please, not a screenshot. 
    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into a message.
    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Edit it out by search-and-replace in a text editor before posting.
    Step 2
    Still in the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash reports related to the process. The report name starts with the name of the crashed process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the entire contents — again, the text, not a screenshot. In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.) Please don’t post shutdownStall, spin, or hang logs — they're very long and not helpful.

  • Complications migrating from Snow Leopard Server to Mountain Lion Server.

    I'm migrating from Snow Leopard Server to Mountain Lion Server. The article "OS X Server: Upgrade and migration" (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5381) says
    "Make sure that any DNS or DHCP servers on which your server depends remain running during the upgrade"
    This advice is reinforced by the details of the article "OS X Server: Steps to take before upgrading or migrating the Open Directory database" (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5300).
    As the server I'm migrating from provides these services it will need to be running during the migration process. This would seem to limit my options to doing the migration from a Time Machine backup (or, making a seperate clone of the server's drive and connecting it externally to the new box)
    My main concern is the seemingly inevitable clash that is going to occur on the network as the new server takes on the roles of the old one - while it is still running.
    What are my options here ?
    This is my second attempt as on my first try I did the migration from the TM backup with the network down - and none of my local network users or their home directories were migrated, although the settings for the mount points were, but there were no actual directories where they pointed to!
    Clear directions on how to procede would be VERY MUCH appreciated
    Thank you.

    Moving from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion means first installing the client (non-Server) version of Mountain Lion and then install Server.app this means that for at least part of the process you will not be running DNS, DHCP or Open Directory.
    If you are going to end up using the same DNS name and IP address after the change then an approach you could follow would be as follows.
    Destroy any Open Directory replicas
    Archive your Open Directory Master (to make a backup)
    Note down your DNS records in case they get messed up
    Export via Workgroup Manager your users, and groups (you might not need this but better safe than sorry), make sure you do not include the diradmin account
    Keep a full back of the server (you should always have backups)
    Note down your DHCP server settings in case they get messed up
    Note down any other service settings
    Install Mountain Lion
    Install Server.app
    Install Workgroup Manager (extra free download)
    Run Server.app
    Make sure settings for services are as much as possible the same as before
    If your lucky that may be all you need to do, otherwise...
    Restore Open Directory archive, if your lucky that will be all you need to do, otherwise...
    Make new Open Directory Master
    Run Workgroup Manager
    Import users and groups you previously exported
    You will then have to set passwords for each user as these are not preserved via Workgroup Manager export
    When I did this, I was also being forced to change all my IP addresses so I had no choice but to use Workgroup Manager to export and import accounts.

  • Data length problem migrating from sql server 7 to oracle 8i

    I just migrated SQL Server 7 database to Oracle 8i db and everything seemed to have ran ok except that in my newly created oracle database, the field size is doubled. For instance a field with nvarchar(4) in sql server would convert to varchar2(8). Has anyone ran into this problem and also does anyone know how to fix it? Thank you so much.

    Hi Roberto,
    You cannot use Workbench 1.2.2 to migrate from SQL Server 7 to
    Oracle 8.
    However, the good news is that we have a new verion of the
    workbench that will have a plugin that can migrate from SQL
    Server 7.0 to Oracle8.
    A beta version will be downloadable from this web-site in approx
    one week. Eventhough this version is a beta version, it has
    undergone some rigourous testing and is very close to production.

  • OS Migration from Windows 2003 cluster  to Windows 2008 R2 MSCS

    We want to go for windows 2008 R2 server ( 64-Bit)  MSCS by migrating from windows 2003 Cluster ( 32- Bit) . We are running on ECC 6.0 and oracle 10.2.0.2 DB.
    Is it possible ?
    Is it traditional System copy if so how to migrate the cluster ?
    Regards

    > 2. If the oracle version is 10.2.0.2 then does it will support Windows 2008 R2.
    You need at least 10.2.0.4 (you need to install that version with a separate DVD, you can't install with the normal Oracle DVD (10.2.0.1). See
    Note 1303262 - Oracle on Windows Server 2008
    Be aware of the fact that the normal standard support for 10.2.x is ending at end of july (you'll have to pay an extra maintenance fee if you continue to run that version) - see
    Note 1110995 - Extended maintenance for Oracle Version 10.2
    So if you now do a system copy to new hardware with a new os anyway, I would upgrade to 11.2.

  • How do I migrate from one Mac to a New Mac?

    What's the best way to migrate from an older (G5) Mac to a new iMac that I just purchased? I want to transfer all my data files over as well as my music and pictures and applications.

    I would use Time Machine (if the OS on your older Mac supports that). You can do a full restore from the Utilities menu in the OS X Installer on the new machine or you can do a clean install on the new machine and use Time Machine then to restore some of your data (user folder etc.). Just use an external USB or FW harddisk for the backup.
    Firewire connection between the two computers (or having them in the same network) should work too. Just install the new Mac, the go to Applications, Utilities and use the Migration tool.

  • Migration from PPC 10.4.11 to iMac 10.6.2 OS 9 files

    I am about to use migration assistant to move my old PPC files and apps to a new 27" iMac running 10.6.2. I'd like to do everything, files and apps and settings and I plan on using a firewire cable and target mode.
    The old computer is 10 years old...still running great! But when it was new it ran OS 9 and there is a lot of that old stuff still on the computer (OS 9 system, various arcane apps like Conflict Catcher--remember that one?!). Do I need to try to clean those out before I migrate, or will 10.6.2 be smart enough to deal with this?
    Thanks!
    PS, what an amazing thing this 27 inch iMac is!!

    Most likely you do not want your old PPC-only applications. They should be updated to universal binary versions first, if possible, or find replacements that are universal binaries.
    With such a mixed up old system I would be quite careful about migrating anything other than your personal data, files, and folders. Quite a lot of old stuff just isn't compatible any longer and can raise havoc on a new and well functioning system. See the following:
    A Basic Guide for Migrating to Intel-Macs
    If you are migrating a PowerPC system (G3, G4, or G5) to an Intel-Mac be careful what you migrate. Keep in mind that some items that may get transferred will not work on Intel machines and may end up causing your computer's operating system to malfunction.
    Rosetta supports "software that runs on the PowerPC G3, G4, or G5 processor that are built for Mac OS X". This excludes the items that are not universal binaries or simply will not work in Rosetta:
    Classic Environment, and subsequently any Mac OS 9 or earlier applications
    Screensavers written for the PowerPC
    System Preference add-ons
    All Unsanity Haxies
    Browser and other plug-ins
    Contextual Menu Items
    Applications which specifically require the PowerPC G5
    Kernel extensions
    Java applications with JNI (PowerPC) libraries
    See also What Can Be Translated by Rosetta.
    In addition to the above you could also have problems with migrated cache files and/or cache files containing code that is incompatible.
    If you migrate a user folder that contains any of these items, you may find that your Intel-Mac is malfunctioning. It would be wise to take care when migrating your systems from a PowerPC platform to an Intel-Mac platform to assure that you do not migrate these incompatible items.
    If you have problems with applications not working, then completely uninstall said application and reinstall it from scratch. Take great care with Java applications and Java-based Peer-to-Peer applications. Many Java apps will not work on Intel-Macs as they are currently compiled. As of this time Limewire, Cabos, and Acquisition are available as universal binaries. Do not install browser plug-ins such as Flash or Shockwave from downloaded installers unless they are universal binaries. The version of OS X installed on your Intel-Mac comes with special compatible versions of Flash and Shockwave plug-ins for use with your browser.
    The same problem will exist for any hardware drivers such as mouse software unless the drivers have been compiled as universal binaries. For third-party mice the current choices are USB Overdrive or SteerMouse. Contact the developer or manufacturer of your third-party mouse software to find out when a universal binary version will be available.
    Also be careful with some backup utilities and third-party disk repair utilities. Disk Warrior 4.1, TechTool Pro 4.6.1, SuperDuper 2.5, and Drive Genius 2.0.2 work properly on Intel-Macs with Leopard. The same caution may apply to the many "maintenance" utilities that have not yet been converted to universal binaries. Leopard Cache Cleaner, Onyx, TinkerTool System, and Cocktail are now compatible with Leopard.
    Before migrating or installing software on your Intel-Mac check MacFixit's Rosetta Compatibility Index.

    Transferring data with Setup Assistant - Migration Assistant FAQ
    Because Migration Assistant isn't the ideal way to migrate from PowerPC to Intel Macs, using Target Disk Mode, copying the critical contents to CD and DVD, an external hard drive, or networking
    will work better when moving from PowerPC to Intel Macs. The initial section below discusses Target Disk Mode. It is then followed by a section which discusses networking with Macs that lack Firewire.
    If both computers support the use of Firewire then you can use the following instructions:
    1. Repair the hard drive and permissions using Disk Utility.
    2. Backup your data. This is vitally important in case you make a mistake or there's some other problem.
    3. Connect a Firewire cable between your old Mac and your new Intel Mac.
    4. Startup your old Mac in Target Disk Mode.
    5. Startup your new Mac for the first time, go through the setup and registration screens, but do NOT migrate data over. Get to your desktop on the new Mac without migrating any new data over.
    If you are not able to use a Firewire connection (for example you have a Late 2008 MacBook that only supports USB:)
    1. Set up a local home network: Creating a small Ethernet Network.
    2. If you have a MacBook Air or Late 2008 MacBook see the following:

    Copy the following items from your old Mac to the new Mac:
    In your /Home/ folder: Documents, Movies, Music, Pictures, and Sites folders.
    In your /Home/Library/ folder:
    /Home/Library/Application Support/AddressBook (copy the whole folder)
    /Home/Library/Application Support/iCal (copy the whole folder)

    Credit goes to Macjack for this information.
    If you need to transfer data for other applications please ask the vendor or ask in the Discussions where specific applications store their data.
    5. Once you have transferred what you need restart the new Mac and test to make sure the contents are there for each of the applications.

  • HT1338 How do I migrate from G5 iMac (PPC) 10.4.11 to a new Intel iMac?

    I am running OSX Tiger 10.4.11 on an iMac G5 PowerPC from 2006. If I upgrade my hardware to a brand new Intel iMac running Mountain Lion as I am considering, how do I best migrate from my old machine to the new, problem free?
    I believe that I can't upgrade beyond 10.4.11 on my G5 as it isn't supported so my problem is a dual upgrade/migration one!
    I'm also aware that I can't run PPC software on an Intel Mac but I'm really having trouble getting my head around the problem of such a large, combined hardware and OS upgrade! HELP - what do I need to do?? Simple explantions only please!
    PS - Apologies if this aimed at the wrong community or it is not presented correctly - it's my first post!
    Many thanks,
    Len57

    Thanks Mende1; I know that PPC apps won't function on Intel machines but I can migrate the Universal apps, right? There is such a large gap between Tiger and Mountain Lion - can I still migrate files directly from one to the other taking the Universal apps as well? Sorry, I'm not very computer savvy!

  • Migration of iCal from PPC G5 10.4.11 to Intel iMac 10.6.6

    Some calendars I tried to bring across from iCal in 10.4.11 on a G5 PPC iMac to 10.6.6 on an Intel iMac using Migration Assistant have disappeared ie they are not to be found on the Intel iMac. Where are they or where might they have gone?
    One of the more important calendars that did not make it across in the migration was called Anniversaries&Holidays. This calendar, surprise surprise, contained items such as birthdays, public holidays etc that repeat on the same day each year, with a few variations such as Easter, which obviously changes date each year.
    I have gone to the back-up of the iCal calendars I had on the PPC iMac in Users/MyName/Library/Application Support/iCal/Sources
    and found 8 folders with names such as 9C19D09D-2AA6-455C-8CF7-7AF3C09C9D6A.calendar
    This folder has three files in it, including one called corestorage.ics Is this the file I want/need?
    Interestingly, I had 8 calendars, so I might expect each of the corestorage.ics files to correspond to each of the 8 calendars. However, when I open each of these corestorage.ics files, I get only a messsage saying this: Adding New Events This Calendar contains new events. Please select a destination calendar: Then follows the name of the calendar. All of the 8 corestorage.ics files appear to want me to save to the same calendar and therefore appear to be identical to each other. Where is the corestorage.ics file that corresponds to the original calendar called Anniversaries&Holidays? I don't have a clue what is going on here. Does anyone else and can s/he help? Many thanks.
