Lose here!  How to start old OS OS later?

After weeks of shut down randomly, my 2011 IMac with OS 6.0.8 died apparently today.  It won't start, just to see the gray screen and the wheel without end.  Ironically, it has not transformed the black screen at all today.  No downtime, but nothing else.  So I guess it's gone.

Guess I'll buy a new one but it OS will have a few generations of 10.6.8.  I'm sure that a lot of my files and important apps will not work with higher operating system.  But I've saved everything on an external.

My question is, how do I open to the BONE saved 10.6.8 during execution of the higher system?

Thank you.

Sounds like the hard drive is dead.

Try to boot from the installation DVD and see what disk utility says about this.

  • How to start a new free trial version?

    OK, I know that sounds stupid, but I bought my old friends computer to office some time ago. Well I got a new camera and I wanted to hang out in photoshop and premier pro for video, that I took. I won't buy again, because I don't know if I need it. Anyway, so I tried to start a free trial and it says that my trial has expired. I asked my friend and he said that he had used them before trial. So, how to start one for me? I tried the tool from adobe, just reinstalled cleanor and created an adobe account. But it still says trial expired or zero days remaining. Do I have to completely wipe the computer to be able to get a free trial? What the devil?

    Updated test files hidden on the disk hard to ensure that the trial is not tried several times... then you can do the same trial again

  • How to start in my external hard drive to Windows 7 on my iMac?


    I new here and just want to start in Windows 7 with boot camp on my iMac running Mountain Lion.

    I was told this software can do, but I am confused how.

    My drive hard win7 is currently connected to my iMac via a usb adapter. How to start up in it?

    Thank you.

    There are additional manual changes must be made to the .vmx config file to allow the Virtual Machine to be suspended not and do not taken Snapshots in order to have it comply with the same conditions imposed on a partition boot Camp install Windows when it is running as a Virtual Machine.

    This was repeated several times in this forum by myself and others so you should be able to search and find details of I synopsized here.

    I had a quick glance, but you would be kind enough to post a link to this part.

    Take a look at: changing the file .vmx for your VM from VMware Fusion (1014782)

    To keep the Virtual Machine of suspension, you do not want to do when you use a physical disk, add the following option in the .vmx config file.

    suspended. Disabled = "TRUE".

    To avoid having the pictures taken using the following option syntax:

    ide0:0. DeviceType = "rawDisk.

    Note that if the physical disks hard was created as a (free) SCSI vs IDE, then ide0:0 would be scsi0:0.  Note that this option can be added automatically when adding a hard pointing to a raw disk, do not remember for sure and no were not I can test at then time, so the option may already be present but if not then add.

  • How to start the Audit Vault (Please run this command at the Vault review officer)

    Hi all.
    I just finished to complete a facility audit Vault on a dev linux system and all processes were available.

    In any case I had to restart my linux machine, but no process started automatically :(

    I'm reading how to start 'something'... by the use of the (e13841.pdf) Administrator's Guide...
    but without results...
    I don't know (I want to say I still have not found in the doc) sequences correct to start and stop services... when start the database... If there is a command to automatically audit Vault start the database...

    I tried...
    [[email protected] ~] $ avctl show_oc4j_status
    AVCTL began
    Please run this command at the verification officer Vault.
    Leaving the control Audit Vault
    [[email protected] ~] $ avctl start_oc4j
    AVCTL began
    Please run this command at the verification officer Vault.
    Leaving the control Audit Vault

    Thanks for your help

    Here are some actions you need to perform:

    Audit Vault Server you installed in your machine in ORACLE_HOME1
    You have installed Audit Vault Agent in your machine in ORACLE_HOME2

    1 / your database from ORACLE_HOME1

    export ORACLE_SID = yoursid
    sqlplus / as sysdba<>

    2 / the AV from ORACLE_HOME1 Server

    avctl start_av

    3 / the agent runtime from ORACLE_HOME2 AV

    avctl start_oc4j

    4 / your agent from ORACLE_HOME1

    avctl start_agent - nom_agent

    At this point, you should be able to start any collector that you created previously. Be in command line mode, ORACLE_HOME1, or through the web console...
