Once I ejected the hard drive from mac os, it was instantly recognized by the guest windows virtual machine.

The device name is probably hard coded into the PCB or soft coded into the Service Area of the platter (aka hard drive firmware) and might be changed by the manufacturer but not by the customer. The partition name (green) might be changed easily, the device name (red) not.

If you're running OS X on a HDD then I don't see how TRIM enters the equation, since TRIM is only for SSDs. If want to do a fresh install on the SSD, simply install it and proceed with your bootable USB, I do not see the problem. What I did when installing the SSD was to put it in an enclosure, connect it via USB and use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the OS ...

Did you emptied the trash after removing the image file (if it was removed in Finder). Check in About this MAC > Storage, if this 500 GB is not used by Backups. If it is, that means that it might be local snapshot of time Machine backup including this file. See http://support.apple.com/en-us/ht4878

I recommend you scan your Disk with 'Daisydisk' and locate the files that are eating up your Diskspace.

Occasionally a disk image will unmount but not release the space. If you are Terminal-fluent, kill diskimages-helper. Or reboot (cold, full-power-down reboot. Good time for software update too.)

With the encryption process included in Yosemite there is a duplicate drive created in the space after the drive that was encrypted. If I'm entirely honest I don't know how that works or what its purpose is I just know that every encrypted machine in this situation has it. That being said you can see using diskutil that your ssd does have a recovery drive on ...

You can surely do this but please not that doing so will void your Apple warranty with the Airport Extreme. What you need to do is: Pull the HDD out of the Time Capsule (take it apart) Install the HDD in an enclosure or caddy Connect the enclosure to your Mac Use Disk Utility to create a 100GB partition Reinstall the HDD in your Airport Extreme and you ...

Open the Terminal.app and type sudo du -k | awk '$1 > 500000' | sort -nr, this command will search for all Directories bigger than 500MB and sort them by size. So you should find the Location to your Backups.

The Boot Camp Assistant will move any file (if any) which may reside in your future Windows partition to a appropriate position in your then shrinked Mac partition before creating unallocated disk space in the repartitioning process. Therefore there is absolutely no need to defrag in the forefront. Please read Do partitions on SSDs map to physical addresses? ...

A Sonos requires that shared libraries are accessed over CIFS/SMB. From your path it looks like this link is for a share over AFP. Can you find a link for the SMB share from the airport extreme ? Looking at the Airport Extreme docs it seems that if you have an HFS formatted disk mounted then it will share over AFP and SMB you could try (just a guess) as a ...

There are at least two approaches to solve your problem: One is potentially destructive, vastly undocumented and i don't know if it works (1) and the other one is for sure destructive (2). So please backup your Mac OS X and your Ubuntu partition if necessary. Requirements: USB thumb drive with a full working Mac OS X and iPartition installed or a Linux ...

This is normal behaviour for Yosemite for users with FileVault enabled (i.e. Your Mac's primary disk is encrypted). The authentication process is done earlier because without authorisation from the user the OS cannot access the rest of the disk. This is a good thing, and I think you are (mostly) mistaken that it takes longer to boot up — since now you are ...

I did fix this by resizing (making it a bit smaller) the Partition1. After doing this I was able to delete/resize all the other partitions. Well, I have no idea why this happened, so this is not a real solution but probably a bug of diskutil.

I am not an expert in OSX partitions but I suspect Carbon Copy Cloner mucks up the partition table somewhat so that start and end cylinders are not correct, or something like that. I may leave my new SSD as it is exactly the way you did it, or try Mike's (Bombich) suggestions to manually create the partition. By the way, they have released version 4 of ...

Please quit Disk Utility if it is open and launch Terminal in the folder Applications/Utilities/ with your external drive connected Enter the following command at the Terminal prompt: defaults write com.apple.DiskUtility DUDebugMenuEnabled 1 Press Enter Quit Terminal Start Disk Utility and enable 'Show every Partition' in the Debug menu After a few ...

A clean install is not necessary, you simply need to reconfigure your NVRAM (nvram boot-args=kext-dev-mode=1) to disable the kext signing requirement for OS X. (After which, you can remove your TRIM enabler and reverse this change or leave it until the next time your NVRAM is changed/resets) A very clear explanation of OS X 10.10 Yosemite's new policy ...

Just restored my macbook pro late 2011 13" running 10.7 off of nothing more than a time machine backup and it worked fine, even with a blank internal. Remember to format your new drive with disk utility using the mac journaled file system. Make sure your external drive is powered and on before you boot, then press option while booting. Select time ...
