When starting to install they stop the process and say encountered many problems try re installing

When starting to install they stop the process and say "encountered many problems try re installing" and system not modified

Try this:
1. Boot from your Panther Installer Disk. After the installer loads select Disk Utility from the Installer menu.
2. After DU loads select your hard drive (this is the entry with the mfgr.'s ID and size) from the left side list. Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.
3. Set the number of partitions from the dropdown menu (use 1 partition unless you wish to make more.) Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled, if supported.) Click on the Partition button and wait until the volume(s) mount on the Desktop.
4. Select the volume you just created (this is the sub-entry under the drive entry) from the left side list. Click on the Erase tab in the DU main window.
5. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled, if supported.) Click on the Options button, check the button for Zero Data and click on OK to return to the Erase window.
6. Click on the Erase button. The format process will take 30 minutes to an hour or more depending upon the drive size.
7. Once the formatting has completed quit DU to return to the installer. Proceed with the installation of Panther.

  • When I plug in my iPhone to sync, it starts but does not complete the process and several pieces of data are not being transferred to my iPhone from my MacBook Air.

    Problem:
    When I plug in my iPhone to sync, it starts but does not complete the process and several pieces of data are not being transferred to my iPhone from my MacBook Air.
    Any help that you can provide in helping my iPhone accurately sync with iPhoto and iTunes will be greatly appreciated.
    Symptoms:
    1)   Sync:  It’s not completing the sync.  Below, I’ve provided all of my settings from the iTunes Summary tab so that you might tell me if I’ve selected any incorrect options.  I prefer to sync the “old school” way – by connecting to the computer – as opposed to syncing over the cloud. Perhaps this is what’s causing the problem? Here is a list of the steps displayed in the iTunes window as the sync progresses:
    waiting for sync to start (step 1 of 7)
    backing up (step 2 of 7)
    preparing to sync (step 3 of 7)
    determining apps to sync (step 4 of 7)
    preparing apps to sync (step 5 of 7)
    importing photos (step 6 of 7)
    waiting for changes to be applied (step 7 of 7)
    syncing apps / copying 1 of 4 (App name) (step 7 of 7)
    canceling sync
    apple icon
    2)   Photos: I've selected only certain of my iPhoto albums to sync to my iPhone.  All of the albums are correct/complete in iPhoto.  All of the albums are listed on my iPhone, both before and after the sync, but the albums are empty (no actual photos) before and after the sync. Perhaps this is tied to the fact that the sync isn’t completing, but because “importing photos” is one of the steps that the incomplete sync displays, I don’t know.
    3)   Apps: When I launch iTunes and click on the Apps folder under the Library listing, then click on the Updates tab, iTunes searches for any Apps needing to be updated and provides a list.  If I click on Update All, the Apps are successfully updated in iTunes.  But, when I plug in my iPhone so that the updates will transfer to the apps on my iPhone, the updates don’t transfer to the apps on my iPhone and those apps still reflect that they need updating on the iPhone.
    Other Potential Pertinent Info:
    The flash memory hard drive on my MacBook Air recently died (perhaps a month or two ago).  Apple had emailed me about a known issue and literally the next day, my MacBook Air crashed.  I installed a new flash memory drive and re-installed everything from a backup off of an external hard drive.  Everything seems to be working fine; it recreated accurately all of my software and data, including iPhoto and iTunes, the pictures and songs (respectively) for which are stored on that hard drive, as opposed to being on the flash memory in the MacBook Air itself.  However, I don’t recall if the start of the sync problem described herein started happening at the same time that I replaced the flash memory drive.  All I know is that the computer is working perfectly in all respects and that even as the sync is failing, it at least says that it’s doing the right things and looking in the right places (e.g., the list of albums on my iPhone matches the list of albums in iTunes, etc.).
    Settings/Status:
    MacBook Air
    OSX v. 10.9
    iPhoto ’11 v. 9.5 (902.7)
    iPhone iOS 7.0.4
    iTunes v. 11.1.3 (8)
    Summary Tab
    Backups (This Computer)
    Options
    Automatically sync when this iPhone is connected
    Sync only checked songs and videos
    Photos Tab
    Sync Photos from iPhoto (429 Photos)
    Selected albums, Events, and Faces, and automatically include (no Events)
    Albums – 9 are selected

    You need to download iTunes on your computer. iOS 6 requires the latest version of iTunes which is 10.7.

  • When opening Bridge (CS6) I get the following message: "Bridge encountered a problem and is unable to read the cache. Please try purging the central cache in Cache Preferences to correct the situation" I tried and after selecting purge cache it does not a

    When opening Bridge (CS6) I get the following message: "Bridge encountered a problem and is unable to read the cache. Please try purging the central cache in Cache Preferences to correct the situation" I tried and after selecting purge cache it does not allow me to select OK. Also Bridge keeps saying "Building Criteria" with the spinning wheel and nothing happens. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. Please help:)

    Maybe a Preferences reset can help:
    Numerous program settings are stored in the Adobe Bridge preferences file, including display, Adobe Photo Downloader, performance, and file-handling options.
    Restoring preferences returns settings to their defaults and can often correct unusual application behavior.
    Press and hold the Ctrl key (Windows) or the Option key (Mac OS) while starting Adobe Bridge.  
    In the Reset Settings dialog box, select one or more of the following options:  
      Reset Preferences 
    Returns preferences to their factory defaults. Some labels and ratings may be lost. Adobe Bridge creates a new preferences file when it starts.
    Purge Entire Thumbnail Cache
    Purging the thumbnail cache can help if Adobe Bridge is not displaying thumbnails properly. Adobe Bridge re-creates the thumbnail cache when it starts.
    Reset Standard Workspaces
    Returns Adobe predefined workspaces to their factory default configurations.
    Click OK, or click Cancel to open Adobe Bridge without resetting preferences.   

  • I updated to V4 but firefox will no longer open when I click on the icon. I can see that the process has started, but there is no browser display. Stopping the process and trying again does not work. Please advise

    Prior to updating to V4, firefox worked perfectly with all my existing applications. After I updated it will not launch a browser page, even though the process is shown to be operable in the Task Manager. The same problem occurs on start-up of my computer, so there are no previous processes running.
    I cannot launch the broswer at all so cannot try clearing the cache etc or other suggested troubleshooting solutions.

    In the Task Manager, make sure to check both the Applications tab and the Processes tab. On the Processes tab, Firefox may have two different components running: firefox.exe and plugin-container.exe. Well, in 3.5.11, it would be only the first one.

  • I can't burn my playlist on several CDs anymore without stopping the process and going to the next selection of songs. First I could, now it re-burns the same selection of songs over and over again.

    I was able to burn the whole contents of a playlist on several CDs in a row. When I do it now however it will re-burn the same selection over and over again without moving to the next. What can be done?

    I started downloading a rental movie on apple tv, but I live in a rural area with terrible Internet download speed...is there anyway to stop the download, and resume downloading, onto my iPad when I have access in an urban setting with high speed Internet?

    Yes, to be honest I was a little surprised myself. But it absolutely didn't connect when plugged into the test socket (I even tried to force a connection from the Home Hub manager but it wasn't having it). It is definitely the master socket. The only extension is a small piece of (engineer installed) phone cable to link the hub and the master socket (because the socket and mains power are unhelpfully on opposite walls of the hallway).
    I ran the Java download for Google anyway and it only took about an hour. The speedtester results are as follows:
     Download speed achieved during the test was - 109 Kbps
     For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 50-250 Kbps.
     Additional Information:
     Your DSL Connection Rate :2560 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
     IP Profile for your line is - 135 Kbps
    I don't as a rule disconnect / reboot the hub; today it has been dropping off on its own, while several days ago I tried a few reboots just to try and get a connection.
    Additional info - my exchange is actually called Claypole Fenton (or vice versa). Whatever, my profile has probably been welded to 135k for days and days.
    Cheers

  • I get the spinning beach ball when I open preview, it wont go away, can i somehow stop the process its trying to do?

    I get the spinning beach ball when I open preview, it wont go away, can i somehow stop the process its trying to do?

    You can quit Preview by selecting it in Activity Monitor and then clicking on the red octagon 'Quit Process'.  That does not solve the issue of the beach ball' as such.  Perhaps. a reinstall of the OS might sole the problem.  That is simply a guess on my part.
    Ciao.

  • When I try to open iPhoto it begins the process and then stops. It brings up a message that iPhoto has quit unexpectedly. Efforts to reopen it bring the same result. My timemachine has been accidentally turned off. I have 20,000 photos on iPhoto. Help!

    When I try to open iPhoto it begins the process and then stops. It brings up a message that iPhoto has quit unexpectedly. Efforts to reopen it bring the same result. My timemachine has been accidentally turned off. I have over 20,000 photos on iPhoto. Help!

    First, copy your iPhoto Library to an external so that you have a backup.
    Second, see if you can create a new Library and have it open. To do this, open iPhoto while holding down the Option key. It will ask which Library to use, or allow you to create a new Library. Save the new library with a different name from the old one.
    If that does open with a new library, the old library is corrupt, but all the files are still OK.
    If it is a corrupt Library, iPhoto Library Manager can repair some corruption, or transfer the Library over to a new one.

  • Why does firefox not start? I have to go to the task manager and stop the process before I can use it

    Sometimes firefox won't start unless I go into the taskmanager and remove it. then it will start. But if I go out of F/F and want to re-start it. usually it re-starts but if I want to open E-mail in Msn, It won't happen.

  • HELP - Receiving error message "The file has not been processed. An error has occurred which stopped the processing of the PDF"

    Have been using Adobe CreatePDF for many months successfully.
    Only recently over the past few days I have been experiencing errors for periods between 3-5 hours on every attempt to convert/combine files. The error reads: "The file has not been processed. An error has occurred which stopped the processing of the PDF"
    It will stay like this and no amount of refreshing the cache, logging in and out will help. I'm running Firefox 34.0.5, windows 7 64bit. Only solution I've found is to wait until the next day and it seems to be working again. Only explanation i can think of is some unexplained maintenance adobe is running behind the scenes because I'm often working late between 12am - 4am.
    When this problem happens, no file types will convert/combine I've tested JPEG, PDF and word docs to PDF.
    I log in and out of my account, I've cleared my cache, I'm using Firefox 34.0.5 which has always worked in the past I just don't understand how this error is happening for such long periods. Starting to reconsider this product when there are free alternatives to simply combine my PDF docs! please help.
    Tom.

    I am still experiencing this problem. Customer service from Adobe has been abysmal!
    I called Adobe tech support at 2am Australian time ( >1 weeks ago) and got onto a help centre in India. I was walked through all the troubleshooting steps and they remotely accessed my PC and confirmed that It was not my PC that was at fault. They reset my password and dialed into my adobe account from their end to attempt a simple conversion and export to PDF which failed. I was told that this problem is not something they can fix, and is a result of something on the back end of their software.
    They advised me that the problem would be passed to a fixed within 12 hours and they would call and email me to confirm everything was OK. I gave my phone number with (area and country code) my email but have not had any communication back.
    I am extremely dissatisfied, and just want this software to function. Is that too much to ask?
    Note: This problem is happening always now, regardless of time being used.

  • How to stop the process for some time

    I want to stop the process for some time can any one give the package or keyword or example for the same
    For suppose two programs A and B.. .B will run based on output of A. What i need is... When A is executed the process will stop for 5mins then B has to execute...

    You can use signals with DBMS_ALERT to "wake up" a procedure.
    Procedure A is something like this:
    DBMS_ALERT.REGISTER('B_FINISHED');
    do logic...
    when finished - send a signal
    DBMS_ALERT.SIGNAL('A_FINISHED','B you can start');
    now wait until B is finished
    DBMS_ALERT.WAITANY(...)
    continue logic hereAnd Procedure B is
    DBMS_ALERT.REGISTER('A_FINISHED');
    wait for a to finish
    DBMS_ALERT.WAITANY(...);
    do logic...
    when finished, signal A it can continue
    DBMS_ALERT.SIGNAL('B_FINISHED','A can continue');This is useful if u they need to wait for each other within the code. if they just need to wait - call B from A.
    Hope this helps.

    I cant seem to download and install the latest iphone software update. I have tried since the release and have been unsuccessful on more than 7 occasions and lost all the data on the process. Anyone have that problem an how do I fix this problem?

    Hi
    Thanks but I have tried doing the above - when I said 7 times I was modest, its more like 15 times.
    And I am referring to the 5.1 software update. I dont have wifi so I guess I will have to try that seeing that my husband also has the same problem - he has also tried downloading several times. It always times out en says that the connection is lost but yet there are always an internet connection and a decent signal once it stopped. Think it said error 32052 or something!
    I am disappointed because the update includes inprovement on the battery life - did you guys notice any difference?

  • How to Stop The Process of oRecordSet.DoQuery()

    Hi all..
    I would like to ask 1 question.
    When program is executing the query passed as a parameter to oRecordSet.DoQuery(), is there any way we can stop the process by clicking on cancel button or other events?

    Hi all..
    thx for your quick replies.
    Coz currently im doing SDK module which requires to process alot of data..and the process of inserting and updating to DB is kinda complicated. So basically, i use transaction to start and when i encounter error, i will rollback.
    Let's say if client run the program and suddenly realized that he/she gives wrong input and wants to cancel the whole process.What can i do? Client may say that button 'Cancel' is actually quite confusing because cancel is self-explanatory term to cancel process, but in SAP BO, it's actually to quit the form.
    I once thought of using thread, however, the event to trigger thread to stop will have to wait until the process done. so it's quite complicated
