    comment Unable to re-enable Spotlight on Volume
    Have you tried erasing and rebuilding the stores with mdutil -E /Volumes/Backup? Also check that there isn't a file called /Volumes/Backup/.metadata_never_index.

    comment How to find Intel SKU for Mac CPUs
    @Buscar웃 The site you linked doesn't contain the actual model string. For example, my Air shows Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4650U CPU @ 1.70GHz, but the site only shows "Processor: Core i7 ULT (2-core), Model: MacBook Air, Clock speed (in GHz): 1.7, L2 cache: 2×256, L3 cache: 4, L4 cache: —, CPUs: 1, Cores per CPU: 2, HT: Yes, ITB: Yes, Introduced: June 2013, Discontinued: current". The fact that the processor is a i7-4650U is missing.

    comment Mac Encrypted HDD Please help!
    When you encrypted the drive, did you select to option to store your recovery key with Apple? If so, you can contact their customer support and answer the security questions to get your recovery key.

    comment Receive iMessage on my lowtech phone
    Are you certain that the app is safe to use? Most iMessage apps for Android have been harmful so far and have been pulled from Google Play Store, and it seems that this isn't available there either. Also, the site won't let you download the app without filling out your info on some ad sites.

    comment External display occasionally shows just noise
    I use the display with the HDMI->DVI converter with another laptop and the Macbook Air with the TB->HDMI converter with multiple other displays, no problems. So it can't be a faulty converter, but the combination of the two can be a problem. Will try to get a straight TB->DVI adapter for testing.

    Do you have FileVault enabled? Have you modified your disc partitions manually?

    comment Partitioning an encrypted time machine hard drive
    This is not a certain answer, but based on the behaviour of FileVault2, no. I encrypted my OSX partition and wanted to get rid of the bootcamp partition later, so I had to decrypt the OSX partition, remove the bootcamp partition, and re-encrypt.

    Not to my knowledge, but I don't have a Time Capsule to test, I use an OS X Server for my backups which has more options.

    What kind of a network setup do you have between the router and the Macs? Firewalls, NATs, IDSs?

    comment Detach a tab in a fullscreen window in Chrome
    Hold cmd, type LCWNV and press enter? ;) (focuses on the location bar, copies the address, closes the tab, opens a new fullscreen window, pastes the address)

    comment Official way to obtain an OS X ISO file
    @JJarava My interpretation was that "you can virtualize OSX on Apple HW inside OSX" ([...] that is already running the Apple Software [...]). This seems to contradict with the article, which has a bare-metal hypervisor. But an interesting article!

    I don't think Xcode will run under X Server, since it uses Cocoa framework.

    What app are you using for photo syncing? You can check this from iTunes, select your iPad and go to the Photos tab, and check what you have selected under "Sync photos from..."

    You beat me to it by seconds :) Additionally, running airport -h gives you more options.

    comment How to create a USB installer for Multiple OS on an OSX system?
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the guide meant for booting PCs, not Macs? Usually Chameleon/Chimera bootloaders are used on Hackintoshes, not Macs. Do you want the USB drive to be bootable on a Mac or a PC?
