Apple Mac Os X V.10.4 Tiger -

Is it easier to Install Tiger v 10.4.8 on a PC, through wiping out the entire harddrive installing it?

Because i already have vista and i want to dual boot with tiger. but the issue is tiger cannot read my hard drive. I have a patched version of tiger 10.4.8 for amd. i cannot get it to read my hard drive


Apple doesn't make any AMD hardware that I know of. If it's not a Mac be aware Apple doesn't support that. The easiest would be to buy a Mac from Apple and dual boot it with Boot Camp. I don't know how to run OS X on non Apple hardware, which you would be doing if you thought Apple's hardware was too expensive, or really liked your AMD build, or wanted the challenge.

Question about Mac OS X v. 10.4.11?

I want to download a quicktime player for my Mac. (one with which I can watch Window's files such as Itunes previews.) Which quicktime player should I download? It needs to be free. Any information will be appreciated! enen: The downloading worked fine until: "Select Destination." It said that I was unable to download it because "this software requires Mac OS X version 10.5." Mina Mimi: I didn't understand which one to download. Please help!!!!


Let's start with the problem you want to solve. You say you want to download a QuickTime player. Mac OS X comes with QuickTime. Unless you have turned off Software Updates checking, you will have gotten a chance to update it to the latest, version 7.4.5 Click on the Apple logo and choose "About This Mac". In the small window, click on "More Info..." That will open System Profiler. In the left column, go down to "Software". Click the arrow to point down. Scroll down to QuickTime. What is the version? There should be a blue Q in the Dock at the bottom of your screen to open the QuickTime Player. If not, go to the top menu bar while in the Finder mode, click on "Go", select "Applications". In the Finder window that opens, choose QuickTime Player. If somehow you have deleted QuickTime Player, you can go to that link you tried before and choose "QuickTime 7.4.5 for Tiger". If your real problem is that you have QuickTime but it doesn't play a particular video file, you may need to download codecs (short for compress-decompress) for DivX and Xvid, links below. Install the DivX (click on the "Mac" link for a shortcut to the download) and Xvid codecs, the two most often used by Microsoft. The DivX download will be an installer program that automatically puts the DivX codec component in the correct location (Library > QuickTime). The Xvid download will be a compressed file that will decompress automatically when they click on it to make a folder called "XVID Delegate MacOS X" that has a file inside called "XVIDDelegate.component" and a readme file. Move "XVIDDelegate.component" to Library > QuickTime. A restart might be needed after that. [Apple does not include codecs for some Microsoft video formats. This is very bad press for QuickTime and makes people think VLC Player is much better. Once you have

The best Quicktime player is Quicktime Player 7, which is made by Apple. (Quicktime was originally mac-only.) The normal version is free. However, since you have a mac, it should be in you Applications folder. The icon looks like a shiny, blue 'Q.'

Switching to the Mac, The Missing Manual

Creator: David Pogue, Adam Goldstein | Computers - 2005

Demonstrates how to become adjusted to the Macintosh operating system and how to transfer data from a Windows system to a Macintosh, discussing topics such as moving files and Macintosh equivalents to Windows-only programs.

Publisher: O'Reilly Media, Inc.

About this book
It's little wonder that longtime Windows users are migrating in droves to the new Mac. They're fed up with the virus-prone Windows way of life, and they're lured by Apple's well-deserved reputation for producing great all-around computers that are reliable, user-friendly, well designed, and now--with the $500 Mac mini--extremely affordable, too. Whether you're drawn to the Mac's stability, its stunning digital media suite, or the fact that a whole computer can look and feel as slick as your iPod, you can quickly and easily become a Mac convert. But consider yourself warned: a Mac isn't just a Windows machine in a prettier box; it's a whole different animal and a whole new computing experience. If you're contemplating--or have already made--the switch from a Windows PC to a Mac, you need Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition. This incomparable guide delivers what Apple doesn't: everything you need to know to successfully and painlessly move to a Mac. The latest reprint of this book has been updated to reflect the new generation of Mac models that run on Intel chips. There's even a new appendix that guides you through the installation of Windows XP on your Macintosh (using adapter software like Boot Camp or Parallels), so that you have the best of all worlds: a single, beautiful machine that can run 100 percent of the world's desktop software. Missing Manual series creator and bestselling author David Pogue teams up with 17-year-old whiz kid and founder of GoldfishSoft (www.goldfishsoft.com) Adam Goldstein to cover every aspect of switching to a Mac--things like transferring email, files, and addresses from a PC to a Mac; getting acquainted with the Mac's interface; adapting to Mac versions of familiar programs (including Microsoft Office); setting up a network to share files with PCs and Macs; and using the printers, scanners, and other peripherals you already own. Covering the latest in Mac OS X v.10.4 "Tiger," Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition explains the hundreds of innovative new features to the Mac OS and how you can understand and make the very most of each. Whether you're a novice or a power user, Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition, teaches you how to smoothly and seamlessly replace (or supplement) your Windows machine--in a refreshingly funny and down-to-earth style--with a mighty Mac.

    A bargain for the price and an OS for the future

    The most remarkable thing about Snow Leopard is simply that it can be installed on a Mac running Tiger. You do not need to pay the money to buy the boxed set to upgrade if you never upgraded to Leopard. This means that you can upgrade a Tiger computer to Leopard using this disk. It is up to the user to determine if they have an ethical problem with that; Apple certainly knew that this was possible when they released the software: they understand and use DRM effectively and always have. The fact it is missing here tells me that they are primarily concerned with getting Snow Leopard unto as many computers as possible as fast as possible. I am sure part of that is the desire to have Snow Leopard outperform Windows 7 which debuts in October.So what do you get with Snow Leopard? The answer is largely performance boosts, although many of those are not really applicable (yet) since few (virtually none) third party applications use the performance gains offered by Snow Leopard... 5/5 Nathan Beauchamp "ConsumerAdvocate (nathan(at...

    Nice New Features, But Far From Perfect...

    I upgraded my Leopard-equipped late 2006 Black MacBook to Snow Leopard. I had it on pre-order all week and delivered on release date. It doesn't boast a whole lot of new stuff to it, but I like the new features it does have, and I love the fact that it takes up so much less hard drive space on my MacBook (I gained an amazing 29 gigabytes of space). I also noticed a pretty good speed boost after upgrading.I really love the new Dock Expose, and how I can look at just one particular application in Expose instead of all the open windows in any given space. It makes finding things a lot easier. I also like the fact that you can now resize your icons in the finder. Dock scrolling (with magnification) and cover flow have been smoothed out greatly which makes it that much more attractive.

    Not a major upgrade but a nice one

    Mac OS X 10.3 Panther is not the substantial upgrade that 10.2 Jaguar (made "snappier" with Quartz Extreme) and 10.1 Puma (the first Mac OS X usable for the masses) represented. It does, however, add many welcome features and is particularly recommended for notebook (iBook and PowerBook G4) and PowerMac G5 users.It is difficult to list every new feature (Apple claims 150 new features). I will describe only the major ones (as well as my personal favorites).The most significant addition is Exposé, which upon a key press or a mouse gesture, shrinks all running windows so you can see them all. Click on one of the windows, it zooms in to a normal size. It is very cool and very effective, possibly the most revolutionary window management technology since the dawn of windowing graphical user interface. Even more impressive, all the windows continue to update themselves even when they shrink, giving you the "control center" view of running applications... 4/5 NutMac "NutMac" (Mountain View, CA) - See all my reviews, October 29, 2003

    Oops! Hit save twice without meaning to, and I can't seem to edit out the rest of this review. Sorry!I ordered this product because I was suffering some difficulties with an earlier version of OS X (10.2.8), and because this one promised some nice improvements and a speed jump.Goodness.Installation was a snap. Several online news sources strongly recommended running disk and permissions repair from the Disk Utility; that took about a half-hour for both--I have a 40GB drive. Then I ran the installer, clicked maybe four buttons, and another twenty minutes later I was running 10.3. Not only does it look cool and contain some fabulous interface improvements--Exposé alone is one of those OS doodads you wonder how you ever got along without, and I can finally run the HP driver for my home-networked DeskJet--but the speed and responsiveness of my computer has bumped--this is a subjective measure, but I think a good one--probably 15-25%.It's... 5/5 David Kudler (Mill Valley, California) - See all my reviews, November 8, 2003

    Okay. Wow.

    (1) You will notice a speed increase on any Mac that fits the specs. Boot time is sliced almost in half on my dual processor G5, and by a third on an older G4 tower. They've obviously put a lot of effort into optimizing the OS code and bringing a new level of "snappiness" to OS X's already quick performance. In my opinion, the speed improvement is reason alone to get Tiger ... it's that impressive.(2) As with other OS X upgrades, I'd suggest a fresh install, wiping the hard drive completely (backing up your stuff, of course, first!), not an upgrade install or "clean" install. I've tried both and, frankly, the fresh install on a pristine hard drive has a better "feel" to it and, if experience is any guide, will reduce problems down the line.(3) Spotlight is everything it's claimed to be. However ... your computer may seem to be acting oddly for the first hour or so as Spotlight (I assume) creates an index. Once that's done, you're flying.This... 5/5 Maine Writer "David" (Maine, USA) - See all my reviews, April 28, 2005

    Just Brilliant new OS

    THis is a brilliant update to Apple's operating system. Installed with no problems, runs beautifully, and the new features are wonderful.This OS will not run on older Macs, but will run on any of the newer (last three years or so) Macs -- and it makes everything look clean, new, and runs faster (indeed!) than TIger.Safari is particularly lightning fast in Leopard. Mail has some wonderful new features (most notably the To Do and Notes features) and everything just looks better.Note that you might need to reinstall some printer drivers after updating - especially if you have Epson printers; but those are available at epson.com (or similar sites for other printers). Many of the "beta" drivers inside Leopard will not work.One note: if you watch the Apple video about Leopard and follow their instructions ("You can start the install, and go out for coffee and it will all be ready for you when you return") it is simply NOT TRUE.

    Wait for the First Update **UPDATED** 11-19

    There is a ton of potential here with Leopard, including some very nice new features that makes the Mac even better. The only problem is that the bugs in this first release are so annoying and problematic that I've wasted more time trying to work out the kinks than being productive. Going from the stability of Tiger to this has been a huge dissapointment.My advice is to hold off a bit until they get some of these issues worked out. Here are a list of the problems I am experiencing on both my Mac Pro and Macbook (other Mac owners are reporting similar problems on their machines):1. Desktop freezing - both machines frequently have their desktops freeze up, making them inaccessible. The solution is to change the screen resolution to a lower setting and back. **Since the 10.5.1 update I have not experienced additional desktop freezing issues**2. Installation woes - Leopard's upgrade disc did not recognize my Mac Pro's system drive initially, I... 3/5 Lon J. Seidman "lon@ lon.tv" (CT) - See all my reviews, October 29, 2007

    BRUTALLY UNCIVILIZED

    The working relationship between a game designer and his publisher is never a simple one. So I would not know where exactly to place the blame, Sid Meyer or 2K GAMES. But in the end, it does not matter. Because it is simply sad to see a great gaming franchise came to this.THIS IS NOT A CIVILIZATION GAMEA great number of major features of this beloved series have been simply removed. A fellow gamer called this "Civilization For Dummies" and he is absolutely right.There is no trading maps or technologies. There is no claiming resources outside your borders by building a colony. There is no need for transport ships as units apparently are now all..amphibious (and they need 15-20 turns to cross an ocean!). There are no city-growth milestone requirements (granary, aqueduct, refrigeration). There is no culturally conquering an enemy city (detonating a "culture bomb" by consuming a Great Artist will only get you extra territory tiles but no cities). There are no spies... 2/5 NeuroSplicer (Freeside, in geosynchronous orbit) - See all my reviews, December 4, 2010

    Sort of an alternate Civ experience, but not watered down. Bugs hold it back on Mac

    This is about the Mac version of the game, I've not played the PC version, though game mechanics should be the same.I read a couple of reviews complaining that the game was "watered down" or dumbed down in some way, but I don't feel that way at all. This is more like your standard Civ experience than is Civilization Revolutions for counsels (now that was watered down!). However there are some big changes. In fairness, if you've read any articles about the games development, or any game previews or preliminary reviews from game websites/magazines, you would know the big changes; 1) Hex tile board layout instead of squares, 2) no more unit stacking, 3) religion gone and cultural sway over rival civilizations reduced, and 4) the strategic limits of resources (one horse doesn't mean unlimited mounted units but instead 1 -4 [depending on the specific tile] mounted regiments]For those who have played earlier versions of the game, these are huge changes (except maybe... 2/5 Patrick Byers (Pittsburgh) - See all my reviews, December 6, 2010

    Gorgeous environment and fun game, but with caveats

    Having played most every version of Civilization since it came out (I missed Civ 3) I was eagerly awaiting this newest installment. The preview videos you see over the web looked fabulous. And, let's face it, if you're into Civilization, you're going to be eager to play the latest version. "Just one more turn" and all that.So after buying the DVD version and receiving it, here's the skinny:1. Installation is a bit of a pain because you have to download the Valve Steam stuff online. In my opinion that should be included on the DVD.2. Make SURE you go to Aspyr.com to check the LATEST version of the system requirements. They're VERY particular. Hopefully they'll improve compatibility over time, but many common Mac graphics cards are NOT supported. Also, it's Snow Leopard (10.6.4 and greater) ONLY.3. After I installed it, I could get to set up but couldn't actually start the game. It would always freeze up. Then I restarted my system and it worked fine... 4/5 Jason Cox "regular guy" (Knoxville, TN United States) - See all my reviews, November 29, 2010
