the drive seem to have been partitioned by another utility and cannot be erased

I have a MBP with 2 SSD. Yosemite is running on the SSD that has been partitioned 1 TB to a 150 / 850 GB volumes.

I wanted to install Windows 10 using Boot Camp but after succesfully download Windows software support that I can not go to the next step where I have to choose a volume (Pluto). Wizard Boot Camp shows my SSD and when I chose the following warning is displayed:

"the drive seem to have been partitioned by another utility and cannot be erased."

I see that Pluto isn't GUID and maybe that's the problem, but there are already some data on the volume of 850 GB that I can't erase. Is there a way to fix this without destroying the data? I don't even know why Pluto doesn't have GUID in the first place...

Thnx,

G

You have two entries 'Pluto '. The outermost is a volume CoreStorage group, which has two volumes, one is named Pluto, the other is TerraNova. The 512 GB of Samsung is your second physical disk. The Pluto in the BC Assistant is the complete LVG, not only the volume of Pluto, which contains also of Terra Nova.

BCA does not support such a configuration on your MBP. You will need to backup your data or manually partition the disk and do a little terminal work, if you want to install Windows in this configuration. The second SSD will complicate it further. You may need to physically remove the disk non-windows in order to install Windows.

Your end of 2011 Mac does not support Windows 10 as described in using 10 Windows on your Mac with Boot Camp - Apple support . You will encounter problems of pilot.

  • Boot Camp: This disc seems to have been divided by another utility. It must be erased before installing Windows.

    I have a SATA Western Digital to 6 TB drive on my Mac Pro 2012.  I thought "what better place to put a bootcamp partition?  But when I went to use the Boot Camp Assistant, I was greeted with this:

    Boot Camp: This disc seems to have been divided by another utility. It must be erased before installing Windows.

    I thought ' OK - I'll delete data... Use utility disk to erase the disk completely, and then try again.  After a few hours, I used... completely partitioned disk utility disk and tried again.

    Same message.

    It seems that for some reason I can erase completely and use the entire disk for Windows (blah) or should I use another drive or not Boot Camp at all.  Is there a problem with the size of the hard drive Boot Camp can support?  Any advice?

    Hello ElPapa,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    I understand that you want to put a Boot Camp partition on your Western Digital HD connected to your Mac Pro. What is your boot drive? If this isn't the case, it could be part of your problem. According to the following article on installing Microsoft Windows using Boot Camp, it is said that you need "at least 55 GB of free disk space on your startup disk".

  • How can I get rid of the new toolbar that have been added by versions 20 and 21?

    I tried both versions 20 and 21, and both have the bugs below, so I ended up having to reinstall version 19:
    Versions 1.) 20 and 21 Add a new toolbar that has nothing more than a button "Firefox" on it--and no way to get rid of this toolbar is provided. It wastes far too much space on my laptop screen - button should be placed on an other toolbars, or simply part of the defined icon that users can use to customize their menus or other toolbars bar.
    2.) this new toolbar is not customizable. Therefore, I don't have the ability to recover space on the screen by the way all of my sidebar on the new toolbar, and then hide the MenuBar.
    (3.) the back, forward and stop. reload buttons in my menubar no longer work. Return to the navigation toolbar and display this toolbar do not solve the problem. Or I can right-click on a web page and select these functions in the context menu: they are disabled for life again.
    4.) I can no longer right-click on the menu bar or a toolbar and get a context menu you I can choose an option "Customize" - I can't ALL a context menu. In order to customize things for versions 20 or 21, I must first reinstall the version 19, make customizations, and then reinstall the version 20 or 21.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    Firefox 40, scheduled to be released next week, will have many patches of compatibility for Windows 10. I hope that will address several issues that you are facing.

    Since you seem to be an "early adopter" type person, you want to try Firefox 40 in his last days of tests?

    Note: Some extensions is perhaps not compatible with Firefox 40, especially the toolbars now of security which tend to be updated simultaneously with or shortly after Firefox versions.

    The following procedure will not remove your settings; don't uninstall NOT Firefox, that does not need.

    (A) download a complete Installer for Firefox 40 'beta' of https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/beta/all/ in a convenient location. (Scroll down your preferred language).

    Note: to retain the use of your plugins installed, I suggest the 32-bit version.

    (B) the release of Firefox (if any).

    (C) to rename the program folder, either:

    (Windows 64-bit folder names)

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
    

    TO

    C:\Program Files (x86)\OldFirefox
    

    (Windows 32-bit folder names)

    C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    

    TO

    C:\Program Files\OldFirefox
    

    (D) to run the installation program that you downloaded in the #1. It should automatically connect to your existing settings.

    No improvement after this installation?

    Note: Some plugins can only exist in this OldFirefox file. If it is missing something essential, present in these files:

    • \OldFirefox\Plugins
    • \OldFirefox\browser\plugins

    When the final version of Firefox 40 becomes available (approximately 11 August), I propose to install this beta because will be auto-updated to Firefox 41 shortly after and unless you like software testing, maybe it's a little more adventure you are looking for.

  • Is it possible to partition the hard drive by using software like Partition Master, install XP and an earlier version of Office on the new partition?

    Partitioning of a Windows 7 computer

    On a laptop Windows 7 HP, it is possible to partition the hard drive by using software like Partition Master, install XP and an earlier version of Office on the new partition? I know I can run Win7 XP mode, but many prefer a base XP environment. Yes, I have new copies unregistered XP and Office 2003.

    TIA,

    Steve

    Besides Partition Master you can also use Windows 7 "Disk Managment" to shrink the partition of Windows 7, create a new partition of the space "unallocated", and then do a formatting NTFS "Full".

    Fields on several Internet sites have been changed in another language. The browser is set to English, and this problem does not occur with Chrome. Specifically, a large part of Tumblr and Facebook menu has been changed in another language (Russian, I think). I tried reinstall Firefox, clear the cache and reset firefox to its default state. None of them helped. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Hey again,

    Sometimes a problem with Firefox can be a result of malware installed on your computer, you may not be aware of.

    You can try these free programs to search for malicious software that work with your existing anti-virus software:

    Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP, if you do not already have one.

    More information can be found in the article troubleshooting Firefox problems caused by malware .
