Install new hardware and update imac g3  os 9.2 to os 10 or get a pc

My dad owns an IMAC g-3 year (2000 or 2001) running os 9.2 that wont run his new scanner--"requires 10.1 os or later".
He is also not able to install the DSL modem program from Verizon as it also requires "10.1 mac os or later" to install---so he cannot download any firmware updates using the mac. He currently has 128 mb ram installed on this mac. By using his other computer--a pc--he and I were able to browse page after page of discussions and "support" etc on the MAC site but nowhere does it say--- how to play a dvd installation disk or even if this particular problem computer ever had a dvd capability--(if it ever did-- it does not work now)
--how much ram is required for os 10 (any version) for os 10 to work well with
--and even if he kicks out the 190.00 plus for the os 10 software and additional cdroms--if needed--that he will be able to use the discs purchased to update the firmware and software.
Other computer manufacturers offer on line profiling to get the computers capability and offer upgrade choices or a real person that walks you thru the process online or on phone--why not mac?
Anyone out there that wants to work for mac support?

Welcome To Discussions dying on the "service" pages!
Mac OS X Versions 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, and 10.4, are complete system upgrades that must be purchased.
The point upgrades, such as 10.1.x to 10.1.5 (Final) 10.2.x to 10.2.8 (Final), 10.3.x to 10.3.9 (Final), and 10.4.x to 10.4.8 (Pending), can be downloaded for free.
Tiger is available for purchase at The Apple Store (U.S.).
Jaguar and Panther, are no longer available directly from the Apple Online Store, as Tiger 10.4.x is the most up to date OS.
If you know what to look for, Jaguar Full Retail CDs, a Full Retail Version, of the Panther Install CDs, or a Full Retail Version, of the Tiger Install DVD, can also be purchased rather inexpensively, at some online Apple retailers, Amazon, eBay, AppleRescue, FastMac, etc.
Be sure not to purchase grey, upgrade or machine specific CDs or DVDs.
Jaguar and Panther are only on CDs, not DVDs.
The discs must look like the images in the above links.
Additional info in these links.
Using OS X Install CDs/DVDs On Multiple Macs
What's A Computer Specific Mac OS X Release
Software Update, Upgrade: What's The Difference?
Before upgrading to any OS X version, check to see if your Mac needs a Firmware Update.
If one is required, you must start the computer from a Mac OS 8 or Mac OS 9 System Folder on the computer's hard disk, not from a CD, in order to install it.
Once Jaguar 10.2.x is installed, you can use the 10.2.8 Combo Update,
or if Panther 10.3.x is installed, you can use the 10.3.9 Combo Update, to upgrade to the final version of either OS.
If your Mac meets the System Requirements for Tiger, you could also consider installing that.
And then use the PPC 10.4.8 Combo Update.
Jaguar System Requirements
-Power Mac G3 or G4, iMac, eMac, PowerBook G3 or G4, or iBook computer
-128MB of physical RAM
-Supports all video cards shipped by Apple on Mac OS X-compatible systems. Quartz Extreme functionality is supported by the following video cards: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX, GeForce3, GeForce4 MX, or GeForce4 Ti; Any AGP-based ATI RADEON card. A minimum of 16MB VRAM is required.
-QuickTime Pro functionality requires a QuickTime 6 Pro key. The QuickTime 5 Pro key will not work after this software is installed.
-DVD Player requires a DVD-ROM equipped Macintosh with built-in FireWire.
Panther System Requirements
Additional Panther System Requirements
Tiger System Requirements
Additionally, "Tiger ships on a DVD, but if your Mac doesn’t have a built-in DVD-ROM player, you’ll need CD media. When you buy Mac OS X Tiger, you qualify to purchase Tiger CDs for only $9.95."

    Other than put disc in you don't give much info about what you've done. With the install disc inserted restart your Mac while holding the C key, that should start it up from the install disc. Should also work fine with a wireless Apple keyboard.

    Confirmed!
    It's an anti-virus related issue. First tried to disable only protection, firewall, etc., but it did not work fine.
    As suggested, so I deleted KMS (but keeping the application settings and objects in quarantine), and was finally able to complete the installation of the update.Then installed again KMS and everything still works fine.
    No experience of Wi-Fi issues.

    Installing new HDD into an iMac G5 with SATA and would like to know how to migrate the old system over to the new drive. Can I use a USB2 external drive, move all the old data, then select the new system as the boot system?

    Yes.
    But you might do better with a program like SuperDuper, as it will be sure to copy any hidden files as well.

  • My Nokia Lumia 620 won't install new apps or updat...

    Greetings,
    My nokia Lumia 620 is stuck at "pending" when I try to install new apps or update existing apps on my phone from the store. I even tried unistalling and reinstalling but still was stuck at pending. That's it no error message, no crashes. it just waits for ever and it never starts downloading
    I have a nokia Lumia 920 and it works fine with the same sittings and downloads from the same Wi-Fi - What's wrong and how do I fix it?
    I'm not a forums guy but I posted this because I couldn't find my problem anywhere on the internet, so I'm really desperate. I need the phone fixed ASAP.
    Thanks.

    take a look at this
    http://www.nokia.com/ie-en/support/product/lumia620/troubleshooting/
    if the battery is completely dead, just keep the phone connected to the charger, and wait about 30 mins before trying to turn it on
    and fyi, if the charger is not powerful enough, lumia phones can drain the battery even if it's connected to the charger
    also dont forget to take a look at this:

  • Migration of BW system to New Hardware and Upgrade to NW04s

    Hi,
    I'm not sure this is the forum for this post but here goes...
    We have recently started a project to migrate our current BW3.5 system to new hardware (HP Superdome) and then upgrade to NetWeaver 2004s.
    To do this, we've taken a copy of our current Dev 3.5 system and moved it to the new hardware and will unicode and upgrade to NW04s.  Once this is complete, we plan to install NEW instances of QA and Prod with NW04s.  We will TRANSPORT all our configuration and reload all the providers in QA and Prod.  This will be a MASSIVE task as we have hundreds of infoproviders.  Additionally, I'm concerned we will not pick objects currently in 3.5 Prod system (e.g. custom queries/workbooks, infopkgs, process chains, variables, etc.) but not in current 3.5 Dev system.
    My question is this - can we instead take copies of the current QA and Prod (3.5) systems and migrate, unicode, and upgrade in the new Superdome hardware.  Per Basis, this is NOT possible due to the size of the current systems - approx 2.5 Terabytes.  But maybe half of the database is consumed by old PSA's, unused providers, etc.  If we were to clean up our current system and do a database reorg to reduce the database size, is it possible to do a system copy (Dev to Dev, QA to QA, Prod to Prod) --> any help/insight is much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Senthil

    I had this experience in my previous project and i wanna share a with you. we have migrated our total bw landscape from alfa servers to HP superdome servers.
    we took all the copies of all the boxes( dev,QA,PRO) and migrate to superdome and upgrade to NW04. but in your case you are not taking copies QA and PRODUCTION. This is not realistic scenario. you got to move all the objects and configuration from dev to respective systems and load the data in the production.
    so you have to take all the copies of all the boxes and migrate to superdome and upgrage to NE04, is the right way of doing.

    Hi,
    First upload the file into an internal table. If you are using a file that is on application server. Use open dataset and close dataset.
    Then :
    Loop at it.
    *insert or modify as per your requirement.
    Endloop.

  • So I just bought a used MacBook from Amazon with OSX 10.5.8.  I am trying to install new software and operating system, but I don't have the passwords to the Users set up in the computer.  What do I do?

    So I just bought a used MacBook from Amazon with OSX 10.5.8.  I am trying to install new software and operating system, but I don't have the passwords to the Users set up in the computer.  What do I do?

    Put your install DVD into the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) and reboot. Be sure to either use the disc that came with your Mac, or, if you installed a later Mac OS X version from disc, use the newer disc. As soon as you hear the boot chime, hold down the "c" key on your keyboard (or the Option Key until the Install Disk shows up) until the apple shows up. That will force your MacBook to boot from the install DVD in the optical drive.
    When it does start up, you'll see a panel asking you to choose your language. Choose your language and press the Return key on your keyboard once. It will then present you with an Installation window. Completely ignore this window and click on Utilities in the top menu and scroll down to Reset Password. After resetting the password use Startup Disk from the same menu to choose your hard drive for startup and restart.

    Hard drive packed up, but had Time Machine backup. I installed new ssd and upgraded to Mountain Lion, but I can't find iPhoto library and photos or iTunes songs? Is there an answer to this?  A backup run did not install either photos or songs. Graham

    Thanks so much but none of that helped.  It was driving me crazy because it would back up another external drive.  I just changed the name of the drive from iPhoto/iTunes Library to Media Libraries and IT WORKED!! I guess for some reason it didn't like the drive being called iPhoto or iTunes ???? I don't understand but I have tried so many solutions and exchanging things out but the name change did it????!!!
    Thank you for your help and replying to this.  Guess I made my own issue!

    Hi,
    Sounds like it isn't to serious. the Bluetooth connection had an error and that is that generated
    the Problem report.
    When the Blackberry started to use Bluetooth the "gold standard" was using Microsoft's
    "native" windows drivers. Now, every major PC company has there own version
    Thus the problem report.
    There is  rather involved and lengthy procedure to check and install the correct Bluetooth drivers
    in the Dell, but I really don't think you want to take that on.( Nod you head and say H*LL YES)
    Here is what I propose;
    The problem report needs to be resolved or it wont go away. Read the manual, call Dell,
    try apologizing to it and that you'll never never do it again, what ever it takes!
    Make the best investment you can make for your Blackberry, buy a media card.
    All the memory in the BB is dynamic, this facilitates the functions of the phone.
    By storing media in that memory, you effect are wasting X amount for file storage.
    Store all media and files on the media card, and you will have a smooth running device.
    They run about $25.00usd, they are easy to install, and they also make moving your
    media a snap. You will need the USB adapter that came with it, but you can get that at
    your local carrier store.
    So if you agree with this I need some info.
    On the Blackberry go to the options icon,click then scroll up to ABOUT.
    I need your software version number, it's listed in this format: 4.x.x.xxx.
    Send it back to me and I can tell you what size card you can get.
    Let me know your thoughts!

  • Creating a new position and updating IT 1028 using HCM processes and forms

    I have to create a new position and update the related infotypes using the design time framework of HCM processes and forms. The problem I am facing is the info type 1028 is not a part of the de coupled infotype framework and does not appear in the service fields list. How can I update the infotype 1028? I was thinking of updating it using the FLUSH method of the class implementing the ADV services interface IF_HRASR00GEN_SERVICE_ADVANCED by calling the function module RH_INSERT_INFTY. But, how do I get the position ID created? Is there any other way of achieving this? Please help as soon as possible.

    HI
    Create one Function Module to return all the vacant positions and load that in a drop down.
    For IT1028 you have to update via the RH_INSERT_INFTY.
    Kind Regards,
