Can i have both leopard and snow leopard on the same partition?

I have a MacBook Pro with 10.5. I want to install 10.6 and keep 10.5 on the same drive. The drive has only one partition. What problems might I encounter.

Yes you can, you could put the two in separate partitions to be safe.
Unless,  as Michael noted, you use VM software to run a different OS on the same  partition, impossible is the word you're looking for. Not safe.
He asked if you can or not. not safety advice. It's a simple yes or no. and yes you can. For all I am concerned, the man is an evil genius building an IT bomb before his final day after an untimely layoff. It's a yes or no question man. Did not ask your opinion on the highly unlikely event that he is able to go through the initial system checks and failsafes, and installation, and then the cosmic chance of success.  If you notice, the only thing I stressed was to get your backups. After that, go nuts.  It's how you learn.
Trigger a dependency issue that the OS tries to correct and it snowballs into a mess.
Is that supposed to mean something? Anything?
Are you by chance one of the apple-sticker-prius jockeys who deliberately close the door on me in the far left lane because you feel that every situation has a moral right and a wrong, and you're left to opine?  Except what's happening is I'm on my Yamaha and a you're technically attempting murder? I"m used to this guy.
         ALright say your mac OS =64 bit, but the hardware inside is 64 and 32. Off the top of my head- the Intel GMA chipsets are still running 32 bit drivers regardless of OS. Install 64bit on that machine and I think you're going to have issues with faulty driver dependencies where GMA spots a newer driver on the old 32bit partition vs. install disc. Youcan't fix this. By the time you start seeing errors, the OS has already tried fixing the dependencies by following down the 32 bit trail and dumping its own core. Try it if you don't believe me.
you want to fill the disk with zeros.
kadaggett (or anyone for that matter), do not follow this advice. It won't make a spit of difference how fast your  Mac will operate. The only purposes for a zero erase is to either try to  map out bad blocks that have developed (in which case, you should  replace the drive), or you're making it much more difficult for anyone  to recover deleted data.
          Right off the bat I think you should stay away from SSDs or perhaps run them in IDE mode to be safe. Or you'd bereplacing them every other day.  WHat I"ll be doing is allocating 10% to cache, playing with the trim, keeping it <50% full, and using 60GB cache to run my OS. You do what you like.  Send me your old HDD's though. Ever try formatting an SSD? And then it actually boots as if you hadn't formatted? Hey you thinkinn maybe sentient Macs experience phantom limb syndrome?
I find and fix bad blocks and realize 90% of them weren't bad. I don't know maybe the ghosts are back. But maybe it was static shock that temporarily crippled a few blocks. Can't know until touch it with a 0. And there is nothing wrong with 0s.  This is not 1987 and you are not going to hurt your What?  Don't order people to follow this or that advice - are you like the hall monitor around here?  WHy do you tell people what follow? Why do you assume they are here to follow? Do you feel like you just led people to the right path? You feelin good? Because I think we both look like ********.

  • Can I have both Lion and Snow Leopard on One Hard Drive?

    My problem is I need to run a PowerPC game on Lion which Lion no longer supports. So i thought i could download Snow Leopard back to my Mac and partiition my hard drive in the process as that is the only way i know of to have both Lion and Snow Leopard. I went through the Boot Camp Asistant process and it seems it will only partition Windows 7 to my Mac when i need Snow Leopard. If anyone has any idea how to help me have both Lion and Snow Leopard at the same time on just one hard drive or figure out how to run the PowerPC programs on my Mac (if there is a way around it). The help will be well appreciated!

    How To Run Snow Leopard On A New Mac
    This does not apply to new Mac Minis or MacBook Airs. When newer models are introduced that also require Lion for hardware support, the techniques described below will no longer work with the possible exception of using Parallels 7.
    What has to be done:
    Create a new partition on the hard drive.
    Get a clone of a 10.6.8 Snow Leopard system. Put the cloned Snow Leopard system onto the new partition.
    Step One: Create a new partition on the hard drive
    To resize the drive and create a new partition do the following:
    1.    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
           After the main menu appears select Disk Utility and click on the Continue button. Select the hard drive's main entry then click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.
    2.   You should see the graphical sizing window showing the existing partitions. A portion may appear as a blue rectangle representing the used space on a partition.
    3.    In the lower right corner of the sizing rectangle for each partition is a resizing gadget. Select it with the mouse and move the bottom of the rectangle upwards until you have reduced the existing partition enough to create the desired new volume's size. The space below the resized partition will appear gray. Click on the Apply button and wait until the process has completed.  (Note: You can only make a partition smaller in order to create new free space.)
    4.   Click on the [+] button below the sizing window to add a new partition in the gray space you freed up. Give the new volume a name, if you wish, then click on the Apply button. Wait until the process has completed.
    You should now have a new volume on the drive.
    It would be wise to have a backup of your current system as resizing is not necessarily free of risk for data loss.  Your drive must have sufficient contiguous free space for this process to work.
    Step Two: Obtain a clone of a Snow Leopard system:
    You will need access to a Mac already running Snow Leopard. You will need a 16 GB USB flash drive or an external hard drive to which you can clone the Snow Leopard system from the Mac that has Snow Leopard installed. Alternatives are:
    Option One:
    Install a new Snow Leopard system onto a USB flash drive. Boot the Mac used for installing with the USB flash drive. Update the flash drive system to 10.6.8 using the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard. Verify that you can boot the Mac with the USB flash drive.
    Take the USB flash drive to your new Mac and try booting from it. If it works then clone the system from the flash drive to the newly made partition:
              Clone 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 new partition on the internal drive. Source means the USB flash drive.
    Option Two:
    If you have a large enough external drive you can erase and use, then it would be easier to just clone the entire Snow Leopard system from the source Mac computer to the external drive.
              Clone 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 drive. Source means the Snow Leopard Mac's internal drive.
    After cloning verify that it will boot the source Mac. If so then take the external drive to your new Mac boot with it. If all is well then restore the clone to the new partition on your new Mac:
              Restore the clone using 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 new partition on the internal drive. Source means the external drive.
    If the above seems too daunting then you might consider running Snow Leopard inside an emulator such as Parallels 7. You are permitted to install a single copy of Snow Leopard inside a virtual machine. You will need to first purchase a copy of Parallels 7 and install it on your new Mac. Create a new virtual machine configured for Mac OS X. You may then install Snow Leopard in the virtual machine then download Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 and update to 10.6.8. Be sure to include Rosetta in your initial Snow Leopard installation. Rosetta is not installed by default rather it's an optional install.

  • Can I have both V6 and V5 loaded at the same time?

    I am going to keep V6 but would like to reload V5.
    Is this possible running both versions? When updates for V6 are available I would like to give them a try. But for the time being almost all of my iMovie videos have Gee Slick transitions. Many crash V6 or just turn black and will not render. If it is possible to run both versions I would like to know if there are any pit falls I should look out for.
    PowerPC G4 Dual1.42 GHz   Mac OS X (10.4.4)   2 GB DDR SDRAM

    Yes, there are several posts here about how to do this. Very quickly . .
    If you have already install v6, you will have to remove it.
    Then, install v5 and rename the app, so v6 will not write over it.
    Now reinstall v6.
    Check other posts for how to uninstall.

  • Can i use both windows and OS X in the same hardisk

    I want to install windows 7 ultimate(64 bit) on imac but if i install it can i use both OS X and windows in the same hardisk or do i have to plug in an external hardisk and can i still use OS X or only apple??

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    Of course. You can install Windows and OS X in the same hard drive, because that's the purpose of Boot Camp.
    I see you are using OS X Mavericks, so you can install Windows 7 or 8 in Boot Camp > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634?viewlocale=en_US Then, follow these steps to install Windows > http://manuals.info.apple.com/MANUALS/1000/MA1636/en_US/boot_camp_install-setup_ 10.8.pdf
    After installing Windows, your Mac will start up in Windows by default. In order to choose in which operating system you want to start up, just hold the Option (Alt) key while your computer is starting up.
    If you do not want to do heavy tasks in Windows, another option you should consider is to install Windows in a virtual machine with the use of an app like VMware Fusion, VirtualBox or Parallels. This way is more secure and there's no risk to harm your Mac.

  • Can you run both Premium and Enhanced agents on the same UCCX system?

    Just that.
    Thanks,
    Steven

    No; all seats must be of the same license level. The design guide mentions this around page 1-2 when it talks about product packaging options (i.e. Enhanced, Premium, etc).
    Cisco Unified CCX deployments must have all product components and optional features of the same package type. Mixing components or options from different packages is not supported. For example, Enhanced Inbound voice option and Premium Quality Manager option are not supported.

    I'm sorry, but you're not clear. You first say you want to
    put five images in "a section," then you say there's a "middle
    section?"
    Can you describe your layout more clearly? Better
    yet, could you make a sketch of your layout "sections" and describe
    what is to happen in each section? Also, could you clarify what you
    mean by "alternate?"

  • How can I have a canvas and external controls at the same time?

    Typically all the space of an applet is used for 2D or 3D; that is, the applet provides the canvas. I am trying to develop an applet where I only want to use part of the applet space for 3D, and then, outside that space (but still within the applet) I would like to add some controls (e.g. buttons or text fields) to provide some interaction. In other words, I want to have an applet that contains something like a frame for 3D, and some controls outside the frame.
    It may be quite easy, but I am very new to applets. Can anyone kindly give me some suggestions? Any help is highly appreciated!

    Hi Dan,
    My table structure is :
    Process
    process_id ( number primary key )
    process_owner ( number which represent the user who is responsible for the process)
    category_id ( number )
    focus_area ( number )
    frequency ( number )
    process_description ( varchar2 )
    Process Region
    process_id ( number )
    region_id ( number )
    Process_website
    id (number primary key)
    process_id ( number)
    web_address ( varcahr2 )
    Above is the struct of part of my DB.
    At present my manual form does the following :-
    When users click on SAVE button , it run PAGE PROCESS , ADD_PROCESS
    In ADD_PROCESS ,
    I have following logic to insert into process table
    Select seq.next_val into temp_variable from dual; - This is the process_id
    insert into process values ( temp_variable , :p2_process_owner , :p2_cateogory , .... )
    to insert into region i used the following logic ( Region is displyed as check box :p2_region north=1 , south=2 ,east = 3 and west = 4)
    l_vc_arr2 := APEX_UTIL.STRING_TO_TABLE(:P2_REGION);
        FOR z IN 1..l_vc_arr2.count LOOP
           INSERT INTO "REGION" VALUES

        END LOOP;
    END;Now as I told, I want to have three text field where user will enter web_address and it should be added to process_website table

  • Can I have Aperture 2 and 3 installed on the same computer?

    I have been using Aperture 2 now for some time and have various libraries with 1000's of images. I want to buy a full Aperture 3 copy from the App store to use for all new photos and leave the old libraries and Aperture 2 as is. Will this be a problem, I am worried the installation will want to overwrite the Aperture 2 version?
    Thanks

    Hi there TD.... Apple have sorted out my log in so now I have my old original account dating back to 2004.
    Eowyn2k has thousands of RAW that he does not want to have to go back and upgrade all libraries in Aperture.
    Obviously if he were using iPhoto and creating books from there then templates do change, however, as we both know, there are many third party apps such as iPhoto Manager that do great things that the basic iPhoto does not do. So has a third party developer created a conversion tool so templated images / photo books can be converted with no errors ? However this thread is about Aperture. I merely gave an example about a massive upgrade re CS that is dealing with actual files and not using templates  / books created by Apple which so change from version to version. I know a keen amateur who upgraded to iP 11 and found it could not do half of what they wanted it to that they downgraded to a previous version. They are now an AP junkie.
    Apparently this is progress in iP.. LOL.
    So it would not surprise me if an individual developer would create an app that would assist an individual in working with opening an AP2 library in AP6 and also keep all effects in place even though it would surprise me if Apple recode the way the burn tool effects an individual image ( for example ) when it is working fine just now. It may be improved but not changed so much that an image would look different if opened in AP6 when created in AP2.
    The RAW engine is being improved with new Camera models being released, we all know that. New codecs are being created and old are even improved. The RAW engine will be able to open RAW images, period, no matter how old they are. However once the images have been imported into Aperture and the RAW engine has pulled these into AP then AP is dealing with data so does it matter if the RAW engine has been updated for these older images currently in the lib ? Probably not.
    That would be like saying that an image created in Photoshop before Creative Suite was created would openly differently in CS5.
    My point was about upgrading libraries that have been archived to DVD or another back up solution.
    Nobody would want to upgrade all their archived material.. I would not and seems like Eowyn2k does not want to anyway. Eventually, there will come a time where he will have to upgrade those libraries if he wants to use them making changes and so forth in time to come.
    If they are not burnt / archived to DVD and are only on Hard Drives then it is best to upgrade them. I upgraded all my libs from AP2 to AP3 as they were resident on HD's... BUT any libs on DVD and not on HD's are still AP2. If I ever need them again then they will be upgraded as I do not run AP2 anymore... why waste time upgrading libs that are not going to be used again.
    I assume when you say iPhoto 9, you do actually mean version 9 which Apple have called iPhoto '11, just checking.
    and Eowyn2k.... what's your wedding photo website ?
    cheers / J

  • Is it possibel to have both flat and hiearachical view on the same char?

    Hi Bex Experts.
    I'm in new version bex and WAD and I'm trying to make some good looking reports with good functionality for Portal.
    In the filter area i like to use hiearchical view on ProfitCenter.
    But I also want ProfitCenter showing in the report.  But not as a hierarchy.
    I have tried to switch the hierarchical view on and of, but it affects both the filter and the row.
    Any suggestions.  Is it possible to make an alias in the Bex query. So that I can set up different properties ?

    Ingrid,
    Would you consider creating two views in the Analyser and then use the Query View web item in the WAD and let the user pick the view with or without the hierarchy?
