Install on a new PC after a hard disk failure on original install?

I lost the hard disk on my desktop, with Adobe X Pro installed (an update).  Purchased a new desktop, and installing my applications.  I can't access the failed hard disk, now only useful as a doorstop.  What are the correct steps to follow to get my license for X Pro up and running on the replacement desktop?  

Did you get it installed? Do you have the license key? Did you make a backup DVD/CD of Acrobat? We have no clue where you are coming from. Adobe can help you with clearing the activation issue if that is the problem, but you need to have proof of purchase or such. You might see if you can log back in where you downloaded and see if you can get it again. It also helps if you have registered Acrobat.

  • After a Hard Disk failure in my MacMini Server (late 2009) I cannot install OSX Server 10.8

    Relaced the Hard Disk (task undertaken by an Apple Store) and installed Mountain Lion 10.8.2 and all went well.
    Downloaded OSX Server 10.8 from the App Store and all seemed to install fine in that I get a success message.
    BUT every time I try and run the Server app subsequently it starts again to `Set up your server` and does not give me the interface as described in the various guides. In other words it is repeating the setup process over and over again and I am going around and around in circles.
    Can anyone help?
    Thanks in advance

    Hi Simon
    I am using the latest version 2.2.1 (169). I have searched for an .AppleSetupDone file and .sb files, but I can find neither. Where should they be?

    You can go strait to SL, all you need is a retail SL DVD available from Apple for $20. The US online store has them at:

    Can I install again my new software after 2-3 months when I buy a new Computer?Thank you

    Yes.  Also, you are allowed to have the software installed and active on two machines, so if you like you can continue to have it on the original machine.  If you want to remove it from the original machine be sure to deactivate it first.

  • Trying to restore my Mac OS  after a hard drive failure and my password is no longer recognized, however I can log in by double clicking on the Lion Icon? How can I reset my password

    I am trying to restore my Mac OS after a hard drive failure and my password is no longer recognized, however I can log in by double clicking on the Lion Icon? How can I reset my password

    First, make sure caps lock is not on.
    Another reason why your password might not be recognized is that the keyboard layout (input source) has been switched without your realizing it. At the login screen, you can cycle through the available layouts by pressing the key combinationcommand-space or command-option-space. See this support article.
    If the user account is associated with an Apple ID, and you know the Apple ID password, then maybe the Apple ID can be used to reset your user account password.
    Otherwise*, boot into Recovery mode. When the OS X Utilities screen appears, select
    Utilities ▹ Terminal
    from the menu bar. In the window that opens, type this:
    res
    Press the tab key. The partial command you typed will automatically be completed to this:
    resetpassword
    Press return. A Reset Password window opens. Close the Terminal window to get it out of the way.
    Select your boot volume ("Macintosh HD," unless you gave it a different name) if not already selected.
    Select your username from the menu labeled Select the user account if not already selected.
    Follow the prompts to reset the password. It's safest to choose a password that includes only the characters a-z, A-Z, and 0-9.
    Select
     ▹ Restart
    from the menu bar.
    You should now be able to log in with the new password, but your Keychain will be reset (empty.) If you've forgotten the Keychain password (which is ordinarily the same as your login password), there's no way to recover it.
    *Note: If you've activated FileVault, this procedure doesn't apply. Follow instead these instructions.

  • Lost 10.6.8. after a hard drive failure!

    I lost 10.6.8. after a hard drive failure, can only update to 10.5.8? What are my options?
    Thanks,
    Amir

    10.6.8 was the last update to Snow Leopard (10.6).  Snow Leopard was never available as a download.  After Snow Leopard is installed from the retail DVD, updates from the base install to the most current (10.6.8) are available as free downloads through software update (or a combo update).  You will need to purchase the retail version of Snow Leopard. 

  • Had to buy a new PC as the hard disk of the old one broke and lost all purchases, but still have them on the iPhone. How can I sync them back to the new PC in iTunes?

    Had to buy a new PC as the hard disk of the old one broke and lost all purchases, but still have them on the iPhone. How can I sync them back to the new PC in iTunes without losing them?

    You should be able to:
    Backup the device to the new installation
    Transfer your purchases into a newly authorized library
    Recover any other media using third party tools as suggested in this post from forum regular Zevoneer
    Restore the device from the backup
    This process should switch the association of the device to the new library, preserving the data and settings in your apps.
    May also be prudent to attempt a backup to iCloud directly from the device before you start... Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup > iCloud Backup > On. It won't save any media but it would preserve the general account settings and documents in case anything goes wrong while you are trying to extract your other data.
    When you get it all fixed, make a backup!

  • Music Files Deleted After Hard Disk Failure and First Sync After Hard Disk

    Hi,
    I recently had a hard disk failure and lost all of the data on my hard drive. I replaced the hard drive and reinstalled all of the software including iTunes. I am running Windows XP Home. The first time I plugged my iPod Nano into my computer after the hard drive replacement it synced to iTunes and since iTunes had no music files it deleted all of the music files on my Nano. How do I get them back and why on earth would iTunes do such a stupid thing??? My Nano contained many songs that I bought from iTunes and I want to get them back. I have found some third party software that will undelete the deleted files but it costs $69. I don't feel that I should have to pay to correct a defective feature in iTunes. Does Apple have an undelete utility? Can I redownload the songs that I purchased from iTunes?

    *The first time I plugged my iPod Nano into my computer after the hard drive replacement it synced to iTunes*
    When you connected did you get a message that your iPod was linked to another library, and then press Erase and Sync? When an iPod is set to update automatically and you connect to a computer with an empty iTunes and accept the message above it will erase the originals completely (as you have discovered). Also as you've seen, none of the recovery programs are particularly cheap so you have to decide if in your particular circumstances it's worth it to get your songs back. It may be if you have a lot of purchased tracks which you will have to pay to download again. If they came primarily from your CDs then it's most likely not as you can re-rip them.
    *Can I redownload the songs that I purchased from iTunes?*
    If you didn't make a back-up of your purchases to restore from then I'm sorry to say that the policy on lost purchases is that you have to pay to download them again:
    "Once a Product is purchased and you receive the Product, it is your responsibility not to lose, destroy, or damage the Product, and Apple shall be without liability to you in the event of any loss, destruction, or damage." iTunes Store: Purchased content can be downloaded only once
    You could try contacting the iTunes Music Store Customer Service and you might be able to persuade them to sanction a second free download. There have been occasional reports in the iTunes forum of this happening, however just be aware that they are not under any obligation to do so. If you click on any of the links on this page you'll find a space at the bottom to email your query: iTMS Customer Service

  • Trying to salvage iCal data after hard disk failure!

    Hi all,
    I had a major hard disk failure recently, and also discopvered that my regular backups weren't including my iCal data! Eek! All that info I use for tax records gone!
    Anyway, the wonderful DiskWarrior managed to salvage a drive that was not visible to the naked eye and it recovered various pieces of information. Many of these pieces seem to be re-packaged, or should I say 'Un-packaged'. I have a heap of folders of files that are probably supposed to be within another file structure to be useful to iCal.
    I have a few folders with very long names (such as EBD6EF28-1595-49DD-8AEA-8525C9F2CB55.calendar) these have the corestorage.ics
    Info.plist
    Index files in them, so appear to be the /App support/iCal folders, with a file extension added?!
    Also I have folders called the same as the .calendar folders above (but no extension) and these are filled with events like this:
    FEAD3FA1-FC1B-4D5B-8C3B-2AB72EA87DF7%2F-.icalevent
    FDDD239C-6B90-11DA-B375-00039383DFDE%2F-.icalevent
    In textEdit I can see that these are all my events... so near and yet so far. If all else fails I will store these for records.
    I can get Calendars to appear but iCal 2.0.5 won't open or imprt the event files...
    Can anyone suggest how I might restore said structure so that iCal can import them?
    Kind regards
    Rosie

    Well, the structure of an ics file is easy to get (drag an event to desktop and open it with a text editor) and is well-described on the web, but I don't know about the structure of your icalevents, other than what we can see in the plist editor. After trimming out the time zone info, I get this for an ics file:
    BEGIN:VEVENT
    SEQUENCE:3
    TRANSP:OPAQUE
    UID:5E87B2F7-CF39-447E-B252-B3BF5F9C4A61

    According to Fat Cat's web page PlistEdit Pro is scriptable, so it might be possible to do something with Applescript.

  • How do I recover tunes from my iPod after a hard disk crash?

    I've just received my PowerMac back after a hard disk crash and am having to reinstall all software etc.
    My iPod obviously contains all the music I'd downloaded from the iTunes music store and all the CD's I'd loaded manually into iTunes.
    I can't see any way of copying the tunes on my iPod back into my iTunes library...
    Can anyone help?
    I had to use a data recovery tool to recover data from my disk after the crash and it's going to be a really long job to sort out what's what...
    JJ

    You can't sync or drag your music back from an iPod to iTunes, the transfer of music is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the files from your iPod, this is just a selection. Have a look at the web pages and documentation for these, they are generally quite straightforward. I use Senuti but check the others out and choose whichever you prefer.

  • What will happen to my key if my hard disk is formatted, will the key work after my hard disk is formatted ?

    I want to know that, will my synchronized computer key will work if I format my hard disk because when hard disk is formatted then the key code will be erased , though I have saved my key will it work after formatting hard disk . let me know .
    let me also know that what will happen if I lose the key I had saved then how will I access my synchronized computer .

    Hi!
    Can you point to the information where it says that the information is backed up in our servers? If that's mentioned anywhere we need to clarify it.
    The only reference I found is here: [[What is Firefox Sync?]] and it specifically says that the information is synched across devices through our servers. If that's misleading, let me know so we can rephrase it.
    Regarding storing the key in your pen-drive or any other back up system: This is the best solution and it will work smoothly after you format your computer. The key doesn't change when you format your computer so you will have no issues after all.

  • Satellite A215-S7414 Hard Disk Failure

    Hi. I purchased my laptop 16 months ago and this is the third time I have had hard Disk Failure. The first two times were in the first year and I received a new harddrive after sending it in to Depot for repair. Here we are the Third time and now Im outta warranty and apparently outta luck. Here are my many questions, first of all I didnt have the opportunity to back anything up, so if I were to replace the Hdd on my own, does that mean I would also have to purchase a new Vista package? Also, I have a Western Digital External harddrive that Im not using.....would that be of any assistance to me in trying to recover anything from the laptop?
    Everyone tells me it is cheaper to just get a new one, but that isnt practical and I dont want to just trash a laptop that is only 16 months old.
    Please help
    Thank you
    Model #PSAFGU0IU002

    I'll try to answer the questions you've asked.  First, you don't need to buy a new Vista package.  You should call Toshiba customer service at (800) 457-7777 and order a set of recovery disks for your notebook.  They will want the serial number and a credit card to cover the shipping and handling ($19.95 standard, $24.95 overnight).  The recovery disks will restore the system to 'as-shipped' condition with all of the appropriate drivers and utilties.  You can purchase a replacement drive reasonably from any number of sources.  Replacing the hard drive is straightforward.  You would remove the cover from the bottom, slide the drive out and transfer the hard drive 'caddy' to the new drive.  Slip it in, boot from the recovery disks and away you go.  You could install the old drive in an external USB housing and see if you can recover anything from it.  I can't think of a role for your current external drive other than as additional storage.

  • Hard disk failure imminent

    I have a Pavilion 1400-Z desktop. It was purchased last November.  I have only had it for 2 months.  Now everytime it reboots I get an error message about an imminent hard disk failure.  It says in a message after I login that the hard disks reporting failure are volumes C:\,D:\
    These are both partitions set up in single 500gb drive that were set up as part of the factory install.
    Is there anything that can be done other than replacing this hard drive?
    Obviously it is still under warranty.  If replacement is the only solution, how do I go about getting the process started.  I've barely gotten to use my new computer and it is already failing. 
    Failing Drive SATAO
    Failing Attributer: #05
    I am very disappointed that I continue to have hardware problems with factory installed HP components. 

    Since your computer is still under warranty, your best bet is to contact HP Customer Support and start the troubleshooting / repair process.
