Confirming my above post. Seems to be if I give the network adapter 30 seconds to wake up, before logging in, the drives come across without error. Bit out of scope to go modifying anything here, so i'll just warn end users to allow for a minute or so on wake, unless we decide to implement significantly more than 5 OS X Machines on our network.

Building a bootable thumb drive and ...

And this is the answer, after careful research: There is NO possible way to do this. SAS cannot be installed on an iMac. Apple likes to surprise its users by making an aluminum shell that cannot be altered. There are SCSI to USB converters, all discontinued, expensive and unreliable. There is the ATTO ThunderLink, which uses the Thunderbolt port, but this ...

Try using Internet Recovery Mode instead of the regular Recovery Mode, and make sure that you formatted the right hard drive (in other words if you have an external hard drive plugged in, make sure that you formatted your actual hard drive, not your external one). Here is some more info about different recovery modes from Apple's support site.

I assume you are talking about same email with multiple messages (emails) in it. In order to print specific email embedded in that email chain: Select the single message window: It will have a highlighted border. The other emails will be separated with page separator. It looks like this (sorry I had to black out my personal info), but you can see 3 ...

hmmm… initially I thought this couldn't be done, however. From messages, start a new conversation, from the top right icon. Start typing your own name until you can select your iMessage-capable account, accept then type the message. Send. A few seconds later the message will arrive on both devices & you can then converse with 'yourself' - though it will ...

Your iMac was delivered with 10.6.6 (somewhat later with 10.6.7). When you have the original (grey) discs that came with it you can use disc 1 to install the Snow Leopard version (not the disc of another machine). Then update it to 10.6.8

Your iMac (21.5", mid-2010) should have been shipped with 10.6.3. The latest 13" black MacBook was shipped with 10.5.2. The installer DVD from your MacBook will not install Snow Leopard. Additionally your iMac will not work with 10.5.2. It doesn't contain the necessary drivers. Normally you should be able to use the original installer DVD shipped with your ...

You may have to reboot your Mac. Share Ethernet via Wifi (do not tell your wife) When it works, the wifi icon on the Mac is a fan with an exclamation mark on it.

I have a similar problem with a bit of a work around.. I'm not sure if it works for others and I'm also trying to understand it myself because it is a bit annoying. My laptop will always see my wifi network but sometimes my wife's MacAir or my moms Samsung tablet will suddenly not be able to see the network. By freak luck I discovered that turning on and ...

iMac that spends most of its time reading and swapping files from the 2TB hard drive That sounds like a problem that needs to be addressed. 1) how do you know this is what is happening? 2) How much memory does your computer have? 3) if you are Terminal-fluent, provide the results of ls -l /var/vm

You might want to start by installing the most recent update to Office 2008 which is version 12.3.6. Failing that, try using the Remove Office tool from /Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/ Additional Tools/, restart, then reinstall Office and update it to latest.

As you know with SATA connection you get 3 to 6 Gb/s. With Firewire you get < 1 Gb/s data transfer. To be specific: Firewire 800 is 800 Mbits/s (Mb/s) not 800 Mbytes/s (MB/s) [8 bits in a byte] its a common misconception. so Firewire 800 is rated up to 80 MB/s.

I know there's an accepted answer, but I'm running a BenQ GW27605HS as a second monitor via a Thunderbird -> HDMI adapter and works great. There seems to be a Yosemite bug (ANOTHER Yosemite bug) where the screens will always start up mirrored, but a visit to the system prefs quickly fixes it. Btw, I would definitely upgrade to the faster graphics card if ...
