Using Mac OSX Install Disc 1, I am not able to get any further than the Partition tab.  It allows me to select my hard drive selection, but will not allow me to make any other selections.  Does anyone know their way around this obstacle?  Thanks!

Using Mac OSX Install Disc 1, I am not able to get any further than the Partition tab.  It allows me to select my hard drive selection, but will not allow me to make any other selections such as options.  Does anyone know their way around this obstacle?  Am I doing anything wrong?  Thanks

Hello, The Hatter, I read about the 'trick' of backing up, erasing, and restoring too, but I figured it would take longer than defragmenting the disk.
But the defragmentation process has just finished! so I'm gonna try to run Boot Camp again soon!
Thanks for your helpfulness, anyway.
And P.S. I didn't clone my system onto the external drive, I just inserted the Mac OS X Install CD, rebooted holding down the "C" key, and installed a fresh Snow Leopard system onto the predetermined partition. I will use that in cases of emergency, when my main/internal system becomes unusable.

  • Does anyone know their way around the audio settings and audio cables?

    I need some help setting up some audio settings for my Ps4 in a weird way. What I want to do is what CBarner89 does on twitch. If you havnt seen him stream from his Ps4 he has his decks hooked up to his stream directly channeling the audio in to the stream. I asked around on the stream about how to do it the only reply I've had is that I should plug the RCA connection from my decks in to my controller with the aux input. Howerever when I do this there is no option in the audio settings to set the input to come from my decks. But when I plug in a pair of headphones I have that also have a mic for answering calls the option to set it my controller as an audio input is highlighted. And then I can set my controller as the main audio input.  I noticed that on the RCA cables I have for my decks have 2 black lines on the actual gold part that you insert and my headphones that have a mic has 3 black lines is this something to do with it?

    Unfortunately I could get neither of these to work, probably because of my own ineptitude.
    I couldn't get VLC to output from Spotify, this could be my own fault.
    I also couldn't make Airplay play with OS X 10.3.9.
    I did however find a messy workaround.
    I am currently using Airfoil on my main Desktop to output Spotify and then am receiving it on Airfoil Speaker on my iPhone, which is in turn connected to my 10.3.9 iMacs audio input via a 3.5mm Jack.
    You need to download an app called LineIn for 10.3 (http://www.rogueamoeba.com/legacy/) to play the sound from the input from the built in speakers.
    To be fair it's not that messy it just requires you to have a device that can have Airfoil Speakers installed on it and have a 3.5mm Jack.

    If you are in the UK:
    Please upgrade your plan to Web n Walk plus. One of our users on T-Mobile UK had this to report back to us:
    T-Mobile UK are in fact port blocking to ensure fair usage on their base Web and Walk Plan. I have upgraded to Web and Walk Plus and as a result the port blocks are lifted and I get a higher data allowance!
    We were also recently contacted by T-Mobile UK, who stated the following:
    Any smart phone (iphone, android etc) that is bought directly from T-Mobile should be automatically provisioned with Web n Walk plus, if customers have bought a handset sim free then they will need to call customer services and get this added. It is free of charge for most price plans (including new plans) but some older plans will generate a charge of £5pm for this.

  • I'm currently signed onto my home network and want to go on with another computer but don't remember my password for my network.  Does anyone know where to find this?  It's a password that I set myself, not the one that came with my router.

    I'm currently signed onto my home network and want to go on with another computer but don't remember my password for my network.  Does anyone know where to find this?  It's a password that I set myself, not the one that came with my router.

    It's in your Keychain on the computer you usually use to connect to your network - the "kind" will be "AirPort Network Password".
    Your Keychain can be opened by using the Keychain Access program. It is in your Utilities Folder.
    Open Keychain Access, and type airport in the search field. You will see a number of entries. Choose the one with the name of your wireless network, open it, and check the box next to "show password". Before it reveals itself you will be asked for your login password - the one you use to log in to your MacBook.
    The network password will appear in the box.
    Quit Keychain Access.

  • I don't want my Time Capsule to link ti Internet, does anyone know how to achieve this ? Thanks Don

    I don't want my Time Capsule to link to Internet, does anyone know how to achieve this ? Thanks Don

    Don,
    We have no idea how you have your network set up, or what devices other than a Time Capsule that you might have, so it it impossible to provide an answer for you based on what we know at this time.
    Can you provide some details so that we can understand how you have things setup, what devices that you have, etc?
    The Time Capsule does need to connect to the Internet to receive firmware updates from Apple, so you would be missing out on some significant things......like a recent important security update....if you try to configure the Time Capsule to connect in the way that you ask about.
    Backups will not be "automatic" if you configure the Time Capsule without an Internet connection. You will have to manually switch networks whenever you want to back up, and then switch back again to your "other" network for normal use. Quite a hassle for most users, even if it can be done.

  • After the new update of the latest iOS, I noticed a yellowish color on the sides of my iPhone 5 screen (Top,Down,Left,Right). Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank You.

    After the new update of the latest iOS, I noticed a yellowish color on the sides of my iPhone 5 screen (Top,Down,Left,Right). Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank You.

    It is highly unlikely that any iOS update could cause this.
    Try a restore as new, if the problem persists, take the device to Apple for evaluation.

  • Hello, I just activated another iphone4 on my account and it is now linked to my other iphone.  If I delete a contact on one it deletes it on the other.  Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Hello, I just activated another iphone4 on my account and it is now linked to my other iphone.  If I delete a contact on one it deletes it on the other.  Does anyone know how to fix?

    One of the phones can keep the current account; on the one that will be moving go to Settings>iCloud and turn all data that is syncing with iCloud (contacts, calendars, etc.) to Off.  When prompted choose to keep the data on the iPhone.  After everything is turned off, scroll to the bottom and tap Delete Account.  (This will only delete the account from this phone, not from iCloud.  The other phone will not be effected by this.)  Next, set up a new iCloud account on this phone using a different Apple ID and turn iCloud data syncing for contacts, etc. back to On.  When prompted, choose Merge.  This will upload the data to this new account.  At this point you will have two different iCloud accounts, one for each phone, with identical data on them.
    You will then have to go to icloud.com on your computer and sign into each iCloud account separately and manually delete the unwanted data (such as deleting the original phone's contacts from the new phone's account, and vice versa).  These changes will be reflected on each phone.

    Could be many things, we should start with this...
    "Try Disk Utility
    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
    3. Click the First Aid tab.
    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.
    5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106214
    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.
    (Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)
    Report any errors it found for Disk Repair, don't need the ones for Permissions Repair.
    Try it again & see if anything changed, but have Activity Monitor open & Show All Processes & sorted on CPU%, also have Console open if we can... maybe not when switching, but we'll see.
    Does this happen if you just try to create a new admin user???

  • Aperture 3.1.2 When exporting files to Finder is creating a folder for each file, that means export 200 files is creating 200 folders for each files. Does anyone knows how to fix this. Thanks

    Aperture 3.1.2 When exporting files to Finder is creating a folder for each file, that means export 200 files is creating 200 folders for each files. Does anyone knows how to fix this. Thanks

    No. This is NOT true. I've been battling with this for a couple hours.
    I choose Export>Versions
    choose
    Subfolder Format: Project Name
    no custom subfolder
    Name Format: Current Version Name.
    Aperture creates project folders for each image and names them Projects1, Projects2, Projects3 etc.
    To be sure, I have no project named Projects
    x
    This particular Aperture library has 16 projects. you can see in the screen grab it's created more than 30 folders
    If I uncheck the Subfolder, that is say NONE, I just get images and images and images, not in their project folders (of course, because I've said NONE, so why would it put them in project folders?)
    I just want to export the entire library and have the versions placed in folders named by the projects from which they came.... ez enough, no?

  • My 4th generation iPod touch (reset today) is unable to connect to any VPN systems. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks

    Didn't realise there would be a question box as well as title and it would take ages to write out again, so...
    Does anybody know what to do when an iPod refuses to connect to VPN?
    Thanks

    Thanks for the response,
    I have tried 3 vpns so far, hotspot shield, spot flux and onavo extend.
    All 3 can be downloaded and installed as I can surf the Internet fine.
    The problem occurs when trying to install the profile to run the VPN. The certificate shows as authenticated so I add profile, and in the VPN settings tab I can see the current VPN profile, but swiping the VPN swiper to on results in a  spinning wheel for a period and then it gives up and VPN returns to off.
    For the record, hotspot shield works fine on my mac computer.

    Try an SMC reset, which can often fix that:  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964 . Note as you scroll down, there are two sets of directions for MacBooks, depending on whether you can remove the battery or not.
