Tiger and Snow Leopard on the same Mac

I need to use some Apps that are Tiger only and so I thought to install Tiger on my MBP using a virtualization software. What would you recommend? VMWare Fusion? Parallels? Any other?
Thank you!

Is there a way to RUN TIGER on my MBP? Anyone?
NO. if you want to run tiger you'll need an older mac. there is NO way to run it on your MBP.

  • How to install and boot both Leopard and Snow leopard in the same Mac?

    I've installed 10.6 (SL) on my MacBook. After I installed SL, I found that a couple of softwares that were working in 10.5 don't work anymore and the providers don't have any update nor any support to the date. Then I decided to make a disk partition: the main with 10.6 and a small one with 10.5 to use with these specific softwares. (the idea is to switch from 10.6 to 10.5 and vice versa)
    I've searched in many Mac discussion forums and manuals for instructions to do that without success.
    I'm novice with these stuffs, so, somebody could help me with the right steps to do that? (in this moment I've already partitioned the HD: 220 Gb and 25 Gb)
    thanks in advance

    You just insert your install disk and when it asks where you want to install the OS, you choose the partition you want it on.
    If there is something about this which is still not clear, just post again.

    Alternatively, partition your internal HD and dual-boot it. Do note that you have to reboot to switch back and forth. You can't do it by logging out and back in.

  • Running Lion and Snow Leopard on the same MacBook Pro

    So here's the thing .....apparently Lion won't run Photoshop and Illustrator CS2 (which I'm quite happy with and not about to shell out silly amounts of money to Adobe for even CS3) and apparently there may be (and I stress may be) problems with Word 2008 (likewise money to Microsoft for Word 2011).
    I think, and probably won't know till I've installed it, that I'd like to try Lion on my Macbook Pro but keep Snow Leopard as a separate OS to run Photoshop, Illustrator and if necessary Word until I can afford to pay Adobe (& possibly Microsoft though I can't really see what improvements they can make to Word 2008) the large amounts of money they seem to think they deserve for an upgrade.
    Does anybody out there know if it is possible to run both Lion and Snow Leopard on the same machine and if it is how do I do it?
    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

  • Using lion and snow leopard on the same computer/ partition?

    In the old days to partition a hard drive on a computer the hard drive had to be erased/ reformatted first.  Do I understand correctly that partioning a hard drive no longer requires this?  Can someone explain, as if I'm 6 years old, how to do this?  I want to upgrade to lion so I can use i-cloud on a mpb  but must still have snow leopard due to a couple of ppc programs/files I still need  (such as the data in chronos personal organizer, quicken 2007, and maybe a few more).  So how exactly do I do this, without reformatting etc.  ?   Sharon

    Launch Disk Utility->Help->Disk Utility Help->Creating new partitions on a disk. Note, that to dynamically add a partition, journaling has to be enabled on all partitions. I have my iMac's 1 TB HD partitioned into three bootable volumes. Two running SL and one running Lion.

  • 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 ********.

  • I need to run Lion and Snow Leopard on the same computer

    i have no money so the solution needs to be free.
    Can anyone help?

    but I wouldn't just launch into this. I suspect your computer cannot run Snow Leopard as a major boot system.  There may be virtualization options, but if you don't know how to partition a drive then 2 pages of instruction using command lines to achieve virtualization may take a bit of easing into.  I haven't really gone into it myself, though I do recall discussions questioning legality.

  • Is it possible to have Leopard and Snow Leopard at the same time?

    If you have an Imac with an external USB HD, can you have Leopard on the HD of the iMac and install a fresh copy of SL on the HD? Would it work?

    Thanks for asking, you reminded me of two things to keep in mind. Let's say you have two drives, let's call them SL and Leo. If you boot with SL all your preferences and settings are on the SL drive and if you boot with Leo, they are on your Leo drive. There's no crossover and nothing dangerous to worry about.
    There are, however, two little things to think about. a) by default, when you boot with Leo your files will save to your Leo account folder and when you boot with SL they'll default to your SL account folder. This can get confusing. There are several solutions but the easy one, and the one I used, is to use DefaultFolder and set default save folders so that the file selector automatically chose my SL folder to save into.
    The other issue involves Spotlight. When you switch from one OS to the other, Spotlight will try to reindex both drives. This isn't dangerous but it does bog down a slower computer. My solution was to use the Spotlight preference in Leopard and turn indexing off completely by making both drives private.

  • ITunes quits when I'm trying to open it. I have installed the latest version and another user on the same Mac can use their iTunes when they log in. I have tried deleting iTunes and re-installing but it still won't open. Any ideas?

    iTunes quits when I'm trying to open it. I have installed the latest version and another user on the same Mac can use their iTunes when they log in. I have tried deleting iTunes and re-installing but it still won't open. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hold down the option key while starting iTunes and make an new library.  Will it open then? If so, you have a bad library.  With the new library import the library.xml version of the file in your iTunes folder.  This will make it 90% like before (some metadata are not identical, but I don't know which ones).

  • Can I use CS3 and CS6 both on the same Mac?

    I just purchased the upgrade from CS3 ti CS6 web and design premium MLP TLP.
    Before to install I need to know if I can use both CS on the same Mac, to avoid problems with old files and be sure I could work.
    Also I need to know if I can install CS6 on the two Mac internal hard drives, one with Snow Leopard MacOS (10.6.8) and one with the Lion MacOS (10.7.x). In some cases I must use Snow Leopard for compatibility issue with other software.
    Thanks a lot

    Installing on two partitions uses two activations, but can be done with no issue. There is no issue on running CS3 and CS6 on the same Mac. However, there is no guarentee that running CS3 on a newer machine will be totally error free. But I think for the most part you should be ok on Snow Leopard.

  • Can I repartition my MB 10.5.8 to dualboot Snow Leopard on the same int.HD?

    I want to repartition my MacBook HD currently running Leopard and install Snow Leopard in a dual boot system. Is Snow Leopard compatible with my early '08 MB? Are there any steps I need to perform or pay particular attention to? My original Leopard install is corrupted and needs to be reinstalled from scratch.Not sure if I can even create the current firmware install discs I would like to have. I have an extra 100 Gb of space for a Snow Leopard install. Also interested if Mac OSx Server is a possibillity to install. I have the Intel chip. Very intersted in your input. Thanks in advance.

    15 is probably enough.  And if you kept your home dir in a separate volume then you could use your same home dir on both leopard and snow leopard.  This is one of the reasons I recommend keeping the home dir on a separate volume.  Very convenient for switching OS's or needing to use a (backup) copy of the current OS.

  • Can I use Tiger and Snow Leopard on my Mac Pro?

    I have a 3 year old Mac Pro with 2 internal hard drives installed by Apple at the time of purchase. At present, I'm using Tiger 10.4.11. I've purchased Snow Leopard (The Family Pack with 5 licenses) and have installed it on my MacBook Pro.
    I haven't put Snow Leopard on my Mac Pro since it is my main, workhorse computer and I have several older applications that aren't compatible with Snow Leopard.
    My question is: Can I install Snow Leopard on my second internal drive and leave Tiger on the main drive? That way I could use either system by changing the start-up drive to the system I want to use. Is this possible, or advisable? Will it work or cause problems?
    Another question: If one of the drives needs repair, could I boot up in the other drive and run Disk Utility to make the repairs instead of booting the computer from the original software CD? (I'm having a problem finding the original Tiger 10.4 System CD in my organizationally challenged graphic design and illustration studio.)
    Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

  • Is it possible to have a Lion OS and snow Leopard using the bootcamp?

    I bought a macbook pro 13" 2011. I have other programs that will run only in Snow Leopard OS just like Logic Pro 8. Is it possible to install snow leopard aside from my current Lion OS? How to install? Is it possible to use both OS in my mac? I need your help. Thanks!

    OOPS!  I just noticed you actually have Lion, and want to go back to Snow Leopard.  That may or may not work.  The first test would be to see if you can boot your new MacBook 13" from a Snow Leopard installation DVD, or from another Mac in Firewire Target mode, or a bootable external Snow Leopard disk (SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner created).
    If that works, then Yes, but before trying anything make sure you have full backups (SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner, or even TimeMachine).  2 copies would be even better.
    Bootcamp is not needed.  Bootcamp is an aid to installing and running the Windows OS
    You can install Lion on an exteernal disk, and boot from that by holding down the Option key during boot.
    You can repartition your internal disk so you have 2 partitions.  You restore your Snow Leopard backup to one partition, and install Lion on the other.  You can choose to boot into either partition by holding own the Option key during boot.  You could also use System Preferences -> Startup Disk to switch between Snow Leopard and Lion.
    You can use virtual machine software (VMware Fusion, Parallels, VirtualBox) on Snow Leopard (does not work the other way), then install Lion in a virtual machine (your MacBook should have a minimum of 4GB if you are going to try this).  This would allow you to run Snow Leopard and Lion at the same time.
    You could buy one of those kits that replaces your DVD drive with a Solid State Disk (SSD), and instlal Lion on the SSD, and again boot holding the Option key or use Startup Disk system pref to switch between the OS versions.
