Create a MAC OS 10.6.7 bootable CD

I have a original mac OS 10.6.7 CD. I want to copy this OS to make another bootable cd so that i can install it in a external hard disk and run it using my HP laptop parallel to my windows. How to make this posibble??? Please give me a step by step solutions

Use Carbon Copy Cloner from:
(Donations accepted) I have used it for years and it is very reliable. (There is another similar one called "Superduper" which is widely used.)
It comes with instructions, and there is a discussion forum. Put simply you do this:
1. First, format the external Hard Disc using the GUID routine, which makes the drive bootable. To do that, run Disc Utility; Choose your external drive and press RETURN (see note below); You will get a window showing "First Aid; Erase; Partition; RAID; Restore"; Erase your external HD; Select "Partition" (in the same window); Drop down the field "Current" and choose 1 partition; Press "Options", and in the resulting window "Choose a partition scheme ......", choose GUID; OK; You will be returned to the previous window (the one with "First Aid; Erase; Partition; RAID; Restore"); Type a name for your disc and press the "Apply" button. It will lake a few minutes to complete.
(I think that I have listed all the steps, but there is an Apple Knowledge Base article on this which you should read.)
2. Run CCC
3. You will get a screen like this:
4. Select the drive from which you want to copy ("Source", left field on the screen) and select the drive on which you want to make the copy ("Destination", right field).
5. Click the lock and enter your password (that is, the password for your account on the computer).
6. Press the "Clone" button.
7. It will take between 30 minutes to, say, 4 hours to complete, depending on the size of the data on yourr drive.
Note: When choosing your hard drive in Disc Utility, you will see two items for it close together, on the left of the window, one above the other. Choose the top one which will make sure that you are offerered "Partition" as well as "Erase" in the next step. Make sure that you do not choose the wrong drive!

  • On Windows Platform, encounters error when trying to open an Indesign document created from MAC

    Hi all,
    On Windows Platform, encounters error when trying to open an Indesign document in INDD format created from Mac. Error received "Either the file does not exist, you do not have permission, or the file may be in use by other application". I am currently using Adobe Indesign CC 9.2 Trial version.
    Kindly advise how can i open this document on windows platform and allows me to edit the document.
    With Rgds,
    Fiona Choy

    Normally there is no problem to open any INDD opening on Windows, when created on the Mac.
    But Mac user are often not aware on the naming limitations. A file name must not contain /, \, |, :
    It should not contain any extended character, it is not a primary problem but will be, if something links to that file, so avoid also: ÄÖÜäöüß+&
    You can use all other non A-Z a-z, 0-9 and - and  _
    I personally would also recommend to avoid spaces.
    This is valid for the INDD file itself but also for all linked content.

  • Copying content from a PDF created from Mac os x10.6.7 quartzpdf context to a MS-Word document

    When I select the text from the PDF document, choose the copy option, then paste, I see garbled text in the Word document. I tried OCR recognition using Acrobat Professional 9
    but that failed stating "This page has graphics other than images and text. It cannot be captured"
    I checked the properties of the PDF document, and noticed that it was created from Mac os x10.6.7 quartz pdf context and PDF version was 1.4.
    The text I am trying to copy is not an image and the document has no protection at all.
    What else can I try?

    If you look at the fonts (ctrl-D>fonts) you will probably see the fonts may not be embedded, or if they are you do not have them on your system. For instance, a MAC uses Helvetica and Windows uses Arial. They look similar, but are different fonts. Likely when you copy to WORD, you are having the problem that the fonts are not on your system. Why not just ask the author for the original document if you need to copy the information. You should asking anyway if you are going to use their info.

  • IPhone can't recognize .docx files create with  Mac Word 2008

    iPhone will not recognize .docx attachments created using Mac Word 2008. It will recognize .docx attachments created in Word 2007 (Windows).
    Please advise?

    This is easily reproducible. I have spoken to Technical Support at Apple. It has been escalated to the Development team. They are working on it. I expect to hear back from them in a couple of weeks.
    I think that it is interesting to see few complaints about this problem posted anywhere. It speaks to the fact that the docx format is not adopted as widely as one would presume. We're going to have to stick to compatibility mode (i.e, doc not docx) until Apple fixes the issue.
    Have a nice day.

  • [SOLVED] Wanted: extract pdf annotations created in Mac OSX preview

    I just had a collegue return a pdf marked up with "annotations".
    I first struggled with finding a viewer that views the annotations, and those that could (evince, okular) all have more dependencies that I'd want/need.
    I decided there must be an lighter weight way to extract the text of annotations from pdfs.  I searched, read, and learned about pdf annotation formats and I figured out how to extract adobe annotations from a pdf.  Only then did I realize that my collegue didn't use adobe.  The annotations were created in Mac OSX's preview.  Preview, it would seem, does not use the adobe xfpdf format for annotations, it uses some other means to embed the annotations.
    I searched the pdf file in text and hex editors, but I couldn't find anything resembling what I knew to be in some of the annotations.  However Preview does it, the text must be encoded and unreadable in the "raw" file.  This is in contrast, it would seem, with adobe's annotations.
    My question, then, is two-fold.  First, are there any text-annotation extractor tools that can get notes created in OSX's preview?  If not, does anyone know of any documentation outlining how Preview embeds this information?  I've been googling the latter question, but I'll I'm getting is "where-to-click" level tutorials on how to DO annotations in Preview.  I can't find any documentation of how that information is embeded into the file.
    Note: evince does get the text of the annotations, but I'd prefer not to keep that installed.  Evince-gtk is only every so slightly lighter on dependencies.  Also, in evince I get flooded with "sticky notes" with all the annotation text.  It would take a while to move those around and close them one at a time to be able to actually read them.  I'm hoping to be able to extract all annotation text and dump it into a text file.

    Holy crap, it works.  A couple hours of reading ugly docs and 32 lines of code later, I have exactly what I was looking for.
    I'd love it if some volunteers would try this out, beat it up, and see what breaks first so I can improve it.  After a little polishing I might put it up in the AUR.
    Get the code from my dropbox here
    The Ugly Patchwork Makefile and a very brief TODO list are also posted.
    I'll put together a PKGBUILD once this is in better order for distribution and installation.  I just got the darn thing to work, it's time to celebrate, not code more.
    Note to Mods: as in my "report", please move this thread to Community Contributions.

  • Staples was not able to print my document created in mac "Pages."  How do I convert it to a publisher file?

    The Staples store was unable to print my document flyer that I created in mac "Pages" that I saved on my flash drive.  They said they couldn't convert it from mac and to go back and "save as" "publisher file."  However, when I click file, save as does not come up as an option.  How can I get my flyer printed?

    On your Mac select print the document. Once in print pane select Save as PDF. The PDF they will recognize.

  • Add a note to a Calendar event that was created from Mac Mail

    When I create a Calendar event by clicking on a date within a Mac Mail message (you hover over a date in an email it draws a dashed box around the date and gives an option to create a Calendar event).  It creates an Event in my Calendar with the following fields:  Subject, Location, Date Time and alert fields, Invitees and a link to the mail message.  But - I can't seem to add a Note Field.  The only work-around seems to be to manually create a new calendar entry.
    Does anyone know how to modify an event created from Mac Mail to add a Note Field?
    iMac Retina 5K 27-inch Late 2014, OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.3, Calendar Version 8.0 (2034.9), Mail  Version 8.2 (2098).

    Thanks Brett for replying, but this doesn't work if the event is created by Mac Mail - which is my issue.  Sure it works with any other event but not one that has been created from within Mail.  If this is a bug I'm sure the Calendar people point the blame at the Mail people and vice versa but that doesn't help me.  But before I submit a report to Apple I thought I would see if I might be missing something obvious.
    See the attached screenshot of an event that was created by Mac Mail. There is no Add Notes field when the event is Double Clicked, Right Clicked or any other form of click.

  • No option to create a .Mac account type

    I've noticed that I no longer have the option available to create a .Mac account type. Only IMAP, POP and Exchange are available. This used to work ok, but since I had some mail problems a while ago and I was deleting the plist files, etc, and re-installed mail, this option has now disappeared.
    I have again deleted the mail plist preferences file, but the option to create a .Mac account is unavailable.
    I do have access to my .Mac mail by setting it up as an IMAP account, but I miss out on .Mac specific features, such as being able to select my alias addresses to send from.
    Does anyone have an idea on how to restore the .Mac account type option?

    Reinstalling Mail is rarely necessary or appropriate to solve a problem. It certainly cannot fix anything that could be wrong with the data stored within your home folder, for example, and may even introduce new issues if not done properly.
    In particular, system updates often include updates for applications that are part of Mac OS X, such as Mail. As a result of having reinstalled Mail, you may now have a version of that application older than what corresponds to the version of Mac OS X you’re running. Or it could be that you’ve removed the AccountTypes folder from /Library/Mail/ (not to be confused with ~/Library/Mail/).
    Since you did this because of some other (unspecified) problems, verify/repair the startup disk first (not just permissions), as described here:
    The Repair functions of Disk Utility: what's it all about?
    After having fixed all the filesystem issues, if any, reinstall the Combo Update for the type of computer and the version of Mac OS X you’re using, unless this is the version of Mac OS X that came with the computer:
    About the Mac OS X 10.4.10 Combo Update
    Mac OS X 10.4.10 Combo Update for PowerPC
    Mac OS X 10.4.10 Combo Update for Intel
    After installing the Combo Update, the computer may restart twice and the first restart may take several minutes. This is normal.
    Take a look at the following articles for guidelines on how to properly install system updates:
    Troubleshooting installation and software updates
    Installing software updates
    Basically, you should verify/repair the startup disk and back up before installing the update, no applications should be running while installing it, and you may experience unexpected results if you have third-party system software modifications (not normal applications) installed.

  • I received an email containing a spreadsheet created using Mac Office 2004 on my new MacBook Air equipped with Mac Office 2011.  When I saved the document, my Finder lists the document without the .xls file extension. Why?

    I received an email containing a spreadsheet created using Mac Office 2004 on my new MacBook Air equipped with Mac Office 2011.  When I saved the document, my Finder lists the document without the .xls file extension. Why?
    All other .xls documents created by Mac Office 2004 retained the .xls file extention when I migrated them over to the new MacBook Air.

    I know what happened.  When I saved the document I somehow hit the Hide File Extension box.  Sorry to trouble this group. I simply resaved it w/o activating the Hide File Extension feature.

    i got the gray screen with the flashing question mark, i tried several ways to boot up but i think i most it done
    something i wan not suppose to do because now it appears that the internal hard drive is blank nothing on it, i am
    currently using a macbook air running os x 10.9.1 and i was wondering if there was a way that i can go onto the apple store and buy leopard and install it on an external hard drive or burn it on a dvd and then try to boot up the old macbook with it.

    This information is correct for Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents.
    It's also correct for Outlook if the Outlook Calendars where exported in the ics format.

  • Playing DVDs created from Mac the Ripper...workflow?

    I've used Mac the Ripper to copy a DVD I have. What is the workflow on how to make that file folder that has Audio_TS and Video_TS (created from Mac the Ripper) onto another DVD AND make it self-play once it gets inserted into the player?

    If you have rights/permission to copy the DVD, make a Disc Image then burn another copy from the Finder.
    Or, if the original disc isn't set for the track to be the "first play," you can use MPEG Streamclip to demux the audio and video, then use those files as assets in a new DVD-SP project for reauthoring.
    Either way, I would not recommend using Mac the Ripper.

  • HT1277 How do you create a MAC email?

    How do yu create a @mac account?

    In Address Book, make a group and add some contcts to that group. Then, in Mail, start typing the name of the group in one of the recipient fields - it should auto-complete.
    If the group members would not like their email addresses shared, use the BCC field, and put your own address in the To field
    Many ISPs limit the maximum number of recipients.

  • How to create a virtual drive of a non bootable drive ?

    How to create a virtual drive of a non bootable drive ?

    Alias can never be mount, but the virtual drive I want to create must be able to mount and unmount.
    Desktop having both original and virtual drive.
    My system is booted from 'Snow leopard' and I've an another drive, name 'Disk Testing' so by using a software I create the virtual drivre of 'Disk Testing' as you can see in the image. Both the drives are identical to each other and both are able to mount and unmount, they are having same data and attributes.
    So I want to create exactly this kind of virtual drive by using any apple script or command.i.e without using any software.
