Upgrading Operating system from Mac OS X 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard

I have a MacBook pro & am thinking of upgrading the operating system - will there be any machine and/or software compatibility issues with, say, upgrading to the Snow Leopard when it is due out in Sept 09 ??

Upgrading from Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger.
If your Intel-based Mac is running Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger, purchase the Mac Box Set (when available), which is a single, affordable package that includes Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard; iLife ’09, with the latest versions of iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, iWeb, and iDVD; and iWork ’09, Apple’s productivity suite for home and office including Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.

  • Need help on upgrading operating system from Mac OSX 10.3.9

    We have a Imac G5 with Mac OS X v 10.3.9. We want an upgrade to run new ILife stuff. We don't know what we are doing.
    What should we get to update the operating system, where, and how do we upgrade the system?
    Are there any particular requirements that my computer will need? How do I know that I have them?
    Is there anything in particular in the System Profile that I need to make sure that I have?
    Thanks.

    You don't say what iMac G5 you have, but here's the *Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard installation system requirements* http://support.apple.com/kb/TA24950 You may have to increase your RAM. A minimum of 1GB is recommended. If you click on About This Mac, you will see how much RAM is currently installed.
    Leopard is no longer available at the Apple Store *but may be available by calling Apple Phone Sales @ 1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753)*.
    Suggest you download the two PDF documents at the top of this link.

  • HT1338 upgrade operating system from 10.5.8 to Snow Leopard

    Hi
    I have looked online and called a couple of stored to try and find the DVD required to upgrade my operating system but apple no longer seem to sell it and I am starting to run in to problems with newly purchased software. I even looked for the Lion USB but this seems to no longer be sold
    Is there still a way of upgrading to a newer operating system so complete necessary software upgrades
    Thanks

    Forgive me being lazy but I wrote the following in reply to the post that preceded yours.
    Aways keep an eye on 'More like this', the column adjacent to your initial post.   You will often find answers and positive leads to your questions there.
    Upgrading to Mountain Lion.    Start by buying the Snow Leopard retail disc 10.6.3, then update to 10.6.8 via the combo updater >>>
    Combo updater for Snow Leopard.      Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1
    Buying Snow leopard from Apple.        Last I read, you must call them (1-800-MY-APPLE). It is $29 plus tax for family pack and $19 plus tax for a single.     The disc is no longer available through a store.
    Before you buy anything, first make sure your Mac is compatible.
    Minimum specs for …     Snow Leopard.  Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard -          Read the Technical Specifications
    Minimum specs  for Mountain Lion. Apple - OS X Mountain Lion - Read the technical specifications.

  • HT4561 how to upgrade operating system from 10.5.8 to mountain lion

    How do upgrade my I MAC from MAC OS X ro Mountain lion?

    To upgrade from OS X 10.5.8, you must first buy Snow Leopard by calling the phone number in the Apple Online Store: 800-MY-APPLE (in the US)
    Make sure your system meets Snow Leopard's requirements:
    Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" System Requirements
    To install Snow Leopard for the first time, you must have a Mac with:
    An Intel processor
    An internal or external DVD drive, or DVD or CD Sharing
    At least 1 GB of RAM (additional RAM is recommended)
    A built-in display or a display connected to an Apple-supplied video card supported by your computer
    At least 5 GB of disk space available, or 7 GB of disk space if you install the developer tools
    After you install Snow Leopard you can decide if you want to upgrade OS X to the latest version, Mountain Lion. Mountain Lion is available in the Mac App Store, which is available to you after upgrading to Snow Leopard.
    Make sure your system meets the requirements for Mountain Lion:
    Mac OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" System Requirements
    To install Mountain Lion, you need one of these Macs:
    iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
    MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
    MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
    MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
    Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
    Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
    Xserve (Early 2009)
    Your Mac needs:
    OS X v10.6.8 or OS X Lion already installed
    2 GB or more of memory (RAM)
    8 GB or more of available hard disk space
    If your system does not support Mountain Lion's requirements, you may be able to upgrade to Lion. To do that you must call Apple again to order a download code. Redeem the download code in the App Store to download Lion. Lion costs 99¢ more than Snow Leopard.
    Make sure your system meets the requirements for Lion:
    Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" System Requirements
    Mac with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon CPU
    Core Duo CPUs are not sufficient for Lion
    2GB of memory (RAM)
    OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
    To determine which Mac you have, what kind of CPU it uses, and how much memory is installed:  > About this Mac
     The specified 2 GB minimum is barely adequate for either Lion or ML. They will run in 2 GB but you may not like its performance. 4 GB is a more realistic minimum.

  • Got message... you can't use this version of the application mail with this version of Max OS X, after i upgraded operating system to MAC OSA X Snow leopard.  How do I get my Mail?

    Hi ...just upgraded my Macbook pro to Mac OSX snow leopard and when I tried to look at my mail, I got this message "You can't use this version of the application mail with this version of MAC OS X".  What do I do now to look at my mail and receive new mail?

    After updating make sure you repair permissions and restart your computer.

  • Upgrade from Mac OS X 10.6.8 to Snow Leopard

    Ok, it's true - I haven't upgraded my laptop in a LOOONG time. I have Mac OS x 10.6.8 and I was told I needed to upgrade to Snow Leopard 10.6.3. But whenever I try it, my laptop just turns off and restarts, I get the gray screen with the apple but that's it. It just sits there, it won't restart all the way. Then I have to do a safe restart and the Snow Leopard still isn't installed...
    What am I doing wrong?

    10.6.3 is not an update of 10.6.8. 10.6.8 is the last of the Snow Leopard updates. Now you have messed up your old system, so you are going to have to erase the drive in order to re-install Snow Leopard properly.
    If your computer came with a version of Snow Leopard pre-installed, then install that from the original software restore discs that came with the computer. Otherwise, use the Snow Leopard DVD you have if your computer originally came with Leopard or Tiger installed on it:
    Clean Install of Snow Leopard
    Be sure to make a backup first because the following procedure will erase
    the drive and everything on it.
         1. Boot the computer using the Snow Leopard Installer Disc or the Disc 1 that came
             with your computer.  Insert the disc into the optical drive and restart the computer.
             After the chime press and hold down the  "C" key.  Release the key when you see
             a small spinning gear appear below the dark gray Apple logo.
         2. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue
             button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu.
             After DU loads select the hard drive entry from the left side list (mfgr.'s ID and drive
             size.)  Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.  Set the number of
             partitions to one (1) from the Partitions drop down menu, click on Options button
             and select GUID, click on OK, then set the format type to MacOS Extended
             (Journaled, if supported), then click on the Apply button.
         3. When the formatting has completed quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed
             with the OS X installation and follow the directions included with the installer.
         4. When the installation has completed your computer will Restart into the Setup
             Assistant. Be sure you configure your initial admin account with the exact same
             username and password that you used on your old drive. After you finish Setup
             Assistant will complete the installation after which you will be running a fresh
             install of OS X.  You can now begin the update process by opening Software
             Update and installing all recommended updates to bring your installation current.
    Download and install Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1.

  • Can not boot from Mac OS X Install Disc 1, G5, Snow Leopard

    I have version 10.6.8 installed. Compter is a 2 x 2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon. 6GB memory
    I want to run Disk Utility and startup from the install CD that came with the computer (the grey one, disc 1, or even the retail disc Mac OS X Snow leopard, the whit one) but I CAN NOT DO IT. So frustrating.
    I restart, hold down the "C" key, before the chime, after the chime, every which way, and my Mac always acts as if I am simply restarting, goes right to the login screen everytime. I tried holding down OPTION on restart to choose which to startup from, but only saw the hard drive as an option. I open System Preferences, Startup Disk and the install CD does not even show up as a choice to start from, yet the install CD shows up in the finder.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks

    OK.
    According to  the knowledge base that model should have shipped with Tiger, 10.4.7.
    Going to need some thought here, though. I was going to suggest a possible problem with the optical drive, but you say the DVD mounts on the desktop as a normal DVD would?
    Nevertheless, do you have access to another Mac or an external HD with a bootable OS X on it (later than the Tiger version your Mac Pro shipped with)?
    If so, try booting from the external, or from the other Mac using Firewire Target Disk mode, and using DU from one of those sources to repair the MP's internal HD, then try the disc(s) again.

  • I have an old iMac Desktop iMac 4,1 will I be able to upgrade to Lion or Mountain lion? I am currently running Snow Leopard

    I am looking to upgrade to Lion or Mountain Lion . I currently use Snow Leopard and have an old iMac desktop  the Apple ID in the computer says it's iMac 4,1.  I am pretty sure this will not meet the system requirements for Mountain Lion but I want to make sure.  If it doesn't meet the system requirements what are my options?  Hopefully it's not buy a new desktop.

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    You have an Early 2006 iMac, and this Mac isn't compatible with Lion or Mountain Lion. That's because your computer has got a Intel Core Duo processor, and Lion and Mountain Lion requires a Intel Core 2 Duo processor or later because they are 64-bit operating systems.
    Your options are to keep it with Snow Leopard (Snow Leopard is still supported by Apple and it receives some security OS X updates) or to buy a new computer with Mountain Lion

  • I just update my Mac operating system from Snow Leopard to Yosemite and now have to upgrade my Epson Printer WF3540 so that it will be able to scan. Will Adobe be compatible with these softwares?

    I just update my Mac operating system from Snow Leopard to Yosemite and now have to upgrade my Epson Printer WF3540 so that it will be able to scan. Will Adobe be compatible with these softwares?

    Hi spiritentrep,
    What Adobe software are you referring to? Are you using Acrobat? You should have no problems running Acrobat XI on Yosemite, and as along as you have compatible scanner drivers for your Epson, you should be fine there as well.
    Best,
