When that model was released, the mainstream boot support was FireWire and APT and not GUID format. If you can’t try that, you’ll want to get a USB to sata controller ($5 to $10) and write the data to a sata drive and connect that bus.

For each defaults write x y z run defaults delete x y, where x is the domain, y is the key and z is the value.

Look at the screenshot I posted, You'll see what you need to click in order to disable the preview in your Finder. My OS is in French and I don't know the name of the option in English, that's why I sent this screenshot.

Solved! Since com.apple.DirectoryServicesLocal.plist was giving me issues I ran launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.opendirectoryd.plist Before executing the dscl delete command which was successful.

So, to my knowledge SVG isn't possible in HTML email. As I understand it you have to create a placeholder signature and then find the .mailsignature file in your system. This will be in the iCloud folder on more recent systems and in the Library folder on older systems. From there you should be able to replace the <body></body> tags in the ...

If you are connected to an external display or projector through USB, HDMI, miniDisplay/firewire, Thunderbolt or even wirelessly, DON'T WORRY! It is just an Apple bug thats been reported.

I would also double-check remote login and remote management. If you think you're being monitored check the activity monitor for anything out of the ordinary and you can also run a virus/malware scan on your system. If nothing comes up you're probably fine and it could just be some weird bug. If you're still worried about it you can change all your passwords ...

Dr Google says... Download Titles Again If you are still having issues with the downloaded titles, be it blank pages or wrong book, delete the downloaded book.

I suspect that Disk Utility does not allow you to save an image inside the source of that image itself. How can it make an image that includes itself? If you still get the error saving to another volume, then there may be some other issue.

The command you are using adds any significant amount of free space immediately after the APFS container partition. The APFS partition container is already at the end of the drive. There is no significant amount of free space to add. There is approximately200 GB of free space above the APFS container partition. The macOS operation system offers no command ...

As of July 2019 (Mojave 10.14.5), CS6 suite works for me. This includes Distiller, mentioned in another answer as unworking. I can confirm that Bridge CS6 works (though I also seem to be able to get Bridge CC free with a non-subscription Adobe ID account.) Dreamweaver CS6 works, but is sluggish for me. However, these apps are EOL and will not work in ...

If you are looking for the fastest way to close several document windows within an application, then there are already plenty of better ways than using the Dock might provide. You can cycle through open windows in one app with Command ` (this might vary in other keyboard layouts, but it's usually the key to the left of Z). You can close several documents in ...

No, what you're asking is not natively possible. In other words, an application's Dock Tile menu does not natively allow for closing individual windows the app has open.

I found this solution Disabling the trackpad from the command line, which is suggests the following command line: sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBMultitouch.kext/ which successfully disables the trackpad, but also the keyboard and a few minutes later the computer crashes and restarts.

I found this... Catalina Link to App Store Edit: This link now downloads beta 4. It may help trigger the search for updates but it didn't fix the issue for me either.

This is the official answer from me on what fixed the issue. If you run into this same situation(rare case really) this is how it was fixed.

I decided to format the drive and reinstall clean because i had a lot of clutter on it and ...

Helo, and welcome to Ask Different. (Please excuse my spelling, for some reason Ask Different deletes the word if I start with the word hello.) Your problem might be that you're restarting into your Recovery Partition instead of your external Installer.

You have created the forwarding rule the wrong way around - i.e. you have reversed it. Instead of: rdr pass inet proto tcp from any to any port 8080 -> 127.0.0.1 port 80 It needs to look like this: rdr pass inet proto tcp from any to any port 80 -> 10.0.2.15 port 8080 In regards to the sysctl.conf file, you'll absolutely need to make that change. ...

It is not possible to update the MacBook Pro 17" Early 2011 hardware for supported use with macOS Mojave. It is simply not supported.

Scroll up before copying. I just observed it. Copy-pasted in textedit and used a service to count words which increased every time I scrolled up. Also scrolling up can be sluggish at times due to media, previews etc., so it might be rendering it from another format the source of which I presume is /Users/me/Library/Messages/Archive/01-03-2019/My Friend on ...

I'm assuming you've disabled SecureBoot, and that the volume name is identical in what follows: It's possible that the T2 chip on these new (2018) Minis makes 'straight' cloning difficult.

You are currently running macOS Mojave 10.14.1 which is among the initial releases, and is generally buggier. Try updating to the current public release 10.14.5, which has addressed a lot of bug fixes. This could potentially fix the issue you are encountering.

Your Internet connection speed alone doesn't determine the download speed that you will get when fetching a file from a remote site.

Is your 'replaced client' the exact same machine name and user as before? if not, you may not have permission to access. The alternative is to take the new client an 'restore from Time Machine' when booted from the recovery partition. This will, of course, wipe the existing data from the hd.

Try it with AFP ON. Although AFP is deprecated, it has been shown to be more reliable with Time Machine over networks than SMB.

Is the new 'replaced' client running on the same level of OS as your other clients? I ran into the same error message when trying to restore a backup, and only got past it when I first upgraded the OS on the new hard drive to the same level as the prior hard drive was running when the most recent back up was made. That is, I skipped restoring files to the ...

Yes it is possible just use the methods that are described in the link which you have attached. For me it worked fine as long as the USB key is formatted acordingly. Don't exit the write session of the TransMac app as it takes ages. Plug in the USB and boot the USB accordingly using the keyboard.

One option would be to create a virtual machine on the pc that runs mac OS then create the bootable flash drive there. You should be able to create the vm using the .app file (as long as it is the full .app, should be over 5gb) and some free downloads ie. Vmware, vmware unlocker....

That guide is very polished and super close to getting you an install, but I fear it isn't sufficient to get rails running. The two things I've been able to reproduce is the rbenv isn't calling the proper version of gem to get rails installed and even after you rehash things, rails is still being called from /usr/bin and not where homebrew and rbenv are ...

Not exactly sure since I haven’t used TM with Mojave yet however, I may help point you in the right direction or stimulate a more accurate answer. TM can backup all files including temp files, deleted files, cache files and even USB drives attached. If you were making a lot of changes during the initial backup, the initial file size will compensate for that....

Installer is the built-in macOS app for installing packages. The Installer app itself does not belong to any app in particular; it runs any package given, usually by double-clicking a pkg from Finder. Installer will request Automation permission when a script in a package requests such, which will occur at the time of running the package. When such a ...

You can control what is shown in the Preview pane with "Show Preview Options" under the View menu. However, these settings seem to apply per-filetype. You may want to remove the Quick Actions bar, which gets in the way of the file info. (You can still access the Quick Actions on a right-click Contextual menu.)

The file size, creation and modification date information is shown just below the file preview. You can scroll vertically over the file preview area or enlarge the Finder window to view the information.

There were two different settings I had to fiddle with to get the computer to go into standby mode when I wanted it to, without periodic wakeups.
