If you go to System Preferences, Mission Control and then untick the second box ("When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for that application") that should fix it I think.

Had the same problem, I unmounted it using terminal, following this tutorial http://superuser.com/questions/527657/how-do-you-format-a-2gb-sd-card-to-fat32-preferably-with-disk-utility

Have you tried using telnet to diagnose the connection? Issue the command: telnet <hostname or ipaddress> 13 Insert either the hostname or ip address of the time server you wish to connect to. Be sure to include the "13" that follows. This is the port number that NTP communicates on. I tried it with the time server you specified above and here ...

I found this website that explains how to do it through terminal. Try it out on your Snow Leopard. It unfortunately didn't work for me on Yosemite, but it says the FX variant is as of 10.6, so you might be in luck. defaults write com.apple.finder MaximumLabelLines 2 defaults write com.apple.finder FXMaximumLabelLines 2 This changes the maximum number ...

Yes - troubleshooting this could be easy if you take some time. Get a notepad and write down the times of the problems - day, minute, second. Over time a pattern will emerge. Save the logs - after it crashes - run the command sudo sysdiagnose as this will package each crash and the logs for later analysis. Pay attention to what crashes - is it a kernel ...

Your Mac mini is probably a Apple Mac mini "Core i7" 2.3 (Late 2012) Macmini6,2. It was originally delivered with Mac OS X 10.8.1. Neither 10.5 nor 10.6 contain the necessary drivers to support your hardware (especially USB3.0). Consider installing Mac OS X Server 10.6.8 in an virtual machine using Parallels, VMware Fusion (both non-free) or VirtualBox ...

No. 10.5 doesn't include the necessary drivers for your machine, neither does 10.6 One option would be to install 10.6 Server in a Virtual Machine. There are a few tutorials on the net, it can be quiet tricky as I recall but it works.

I found that I had to delete all instances of "Install OSX Yosemite", which I had renamed to "Install OSX Yosemite_10.10.1" from /Applications/ and eject my old USB key, which was labeeled "Install OSX Yosemite_10.10.1" before my computer would download the latest (10.10.2) installer. Just FWIW, might be worth a try

Did you try to press the "option" key during startup? This will prompt you to select the startup disk if several are available. Set the system to boot into the one you will boot into most often, and if you want to boot into the other, press "option" when you switch the Mac on and wait for the prompt.

Sounds like your hard disk could be on its way out. A folder icon with a question mark means that the Mac can not find a valid Operating System on the disk (or the OS which was on there has become corrupted). Booting with your finger on shift boots the Mac into, what is called, Safe Mode (or Safe Boot). That is to say no extra software is loaded at boot ...

My Snow Leopard 10.6.8 disk from my old MacPro 1,1 is now on my MacPro 5,1. Yes, it boots. I don't use it much anymore, but since there are 4 HD bays, I just keep it there.

As 10.6.8 is supported on both Mac Pros the simple answer is yes, you can transfer your disks over to the newer Mac Pro and your installation will work as it did before. Assuming you don't do something silly like accept the free update to Yosemite (which is supported on the Mac Pro 3,1) you will be able to move the disk back to the older machine if you need ...

Checking the specs of the the MacPro1,1 you should be able to upgrade to 10.7.5 if you upgraded it to at least 2 GB of RAM and you don't need Rosetta (for PPC-apps). Since the preinstalled system on the MacPro 3,1 was 10.5.1 and both are equipped with a SATA (3 Gb/s) internal HD-interface, there shouldn't be any problem to move the "old" disks. Your disks ...

There could be several reasons for this as far as I can tell, but my solution, after hours of research was rebuilding the iTunes library. You might be able to check if this will actually work by addig some new music to your library and then trying to sync it to your device. If becomes available (black instead of gray in the Music section), then this might ...

A few of things for you to try... First, try starting in Safe Boot by holding the Shift key when you hear the startup chime. If you manage to successfully boot in this way and you can access the internet, download and install OS X 10.6.8 Combo Update V1.1. Restart and see what happens... If that doesn't work - and you have the original discs that shipped ...
