I-mac not booting up?

I dont know what i-mac i have…(model- A1058)
(i think its a G5)

It ran fine the other day, but now when i turn it on i get a grey screen with the little smiley face but nothing else.

i dont have any disks (boot disks) or anything, but i have some very expensive video software on it.

what is wrong!?!?!
thanks

1. Disconnect all external devices and cables, including USB, FireWire, and Ethernet.

2. Reconnect these devices one at a time, beginning with the keyboard and then the mouse, and restart the computer after connecting each one to see if the computer starts up without stopping. If the computer stops responding after you connect a certain device or cable, you’ll know that that’s what’s causing the issue. You should replace that device or cable.

3.Find the Software Install or Restore disc that came with your computer. Insert the Software Install or Restore disc into your computer’s optical drive. (These discs are grey and came with your mac inside the box.)

4. Shut down your computer.

5. Once it’s off, hold down the C key on the keyboard and start up your computer. This will start up the computer from the Software Install and Restore disc instead of your hard disk.

6. If your iMac G5 successfully starts up when started up from this disc, your hard disk may have damaged software. You can use the Archive and Install feature of the Mac OS X Installer to reinstall a good copy of the software. This kind of installation gives you a fresh version of Mac OS X, but you don’t lose any data from the computer. All of your old information is archived.

7. If you are unable to see the hard disk when you install Mac OS X, use Disk Utility to repair or reformat your hard drive. Important: Please be aware that formatting the drive erases all of the data on it. If you don’t have a backup of the the data on the hard disk, you may want to have a company that provides data recovery services save the data for you before erasing it.

8. If you are unable to reformat your drive or are unable to see the drive in Disk Utility, you may try to use a third-party disk repair utility to see if it can repair the disk.

9. If you are unable to repair or reformat your hard disk, please take the computer to your nearest Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for service. If you don’t have a backup of the the data on the hard disk, you may want to have a company that provides data recovery services save the data for you before ordering a replacement hard disk.

10. After replacing your hard drive, if you are still unable to mount (see) your hard disk using Disk Utility, you may need to replace the midplane assembly.

طريقة تسطيب وندوز اكس بى الى جانب الماك

I have to admit, I’ve been using Macs since the digital stone age and still get frustrated that I have to buy PCs so I can run Windows with any decent results. I’ve run Microsoft’s Virtual PC, for example, but it’s a dog and even when you have lots of patience it’s pretty difficult to work within that environment even if you have the most powerful computer and least demanding application.

Further, I think that Apple’s Boot Camp program is incredibly smart and have been dual booting Macs for quite a while, though usually into different flavors of Linux or related. I even had my tri-booting Mac laptop make it to the cover of a Linux magazine!

Still, though, the idea of running Windows — or another OS — within Mac OS X through what’s called a “virtual machine” or “virtualization” solution, is too good to miss. That’s why I was thrilled when Parallels released its Parallels Desktop, a full Windows-capable virtualization package for less than $80. Nice!

Just like with Apple’s Boot Camp, there are some specific requirements that you need to meet before you can use Parallels Desktop, however, chief among them the requirement that you have an Intel-based Macintosh. You’ll also want at least a few gig of free disk space and at least 1GB of memory for performance reasons. They also recommend you have the very latest version of Mac OS X, which is easily done with the Software Update capability on the Macs.

Let’s Get Started!

Your first step isn’t to download the application, believe it or not, but rather to decide whether you want to get a free 15-day product key or go ahead and buy the program and get a full product key. I suggest the latter, honestly, because it’s very cool and well worth the money. Now, download Parallels Desktop.

Once you get the 23MB disk image, open it up and you’ll see a pretty typical set of icons:

Parallels, Finder View

Don’t just click on the installer, however. Spend a few minutes reading through the User Guide included to double-check that everything’s compatible with your configuration. Then you’ll find that the installer is quite typical of Mac installers, with a license to accept, a hard disk to select for the installation target, and a few buttons to click. It’s so typical I’m not going to even include a screenshot here!

Once the installation is finished, it’s time to start the application, which you’ll find in a folder called “Parallels” in your Application directory. Click on the program and you’ll see a rather intimidating first screen:

Parallels, Untitled Virtual Machine

Don’t panic. Instead, click on the “New VM…” button on the bottom left to launch the New VM Wizard. (VM = virtual machine, remember).

Parallels, New Virtual Machine Wizard

This will help you through the steps necessary to create a new “virtual” computer that will let you install the operating system of your choice, Microsoft Windows XP.

Your first decision will be to determine if you want to create a typical VM, create a custom VM, or create a blank VM:

Parallels, New Virtual Machine Wizard 2

As the wizard recommends, I also encourage you to choose the default configuration. It’s easy to tweak things afterwards, after all.

Since we’re doing a default configuration, we need to specify the OS type and version:

Parallels, New Virtual Machine Wizard, SPecifying a Guest OS

Poke around here a bit, you’ll be astonished at the number of different operating systems the Parallels Desktop supports!! Oh, and not to state anything too obvious, but remember that these are just default preferences. You still need the OS itself for installation.

Almost done with the Wizard.

You need to specify the name of your virtual machine, and where it should be stored on your disk:

Parallels, New Virtual Machine Wizard, VM Name

Since this is your first VM, Parallels will need to create some directories too, as you’ll quickly learn:

Parallels, New Virtual Machine Wizard, Directory Doesn't Exist

No worries. Click “OK” and the virtual machine for Windows XP will be created and ready to install.

Ready to Install

Ah, well, we’re almost ready to install, as you can now see when you quit the Wizard and get back to the main Parallels Desktop view:

Parallels Startup View

What’s wrong? Too little memory (RAM) allocated for my tastes. Easily fixed, by clicking on the word “Memory”, which takes you to the darn useful Configuration Editor:

Parallels VM Configuration Editor

Slide the control along to the recommended amount (or more, your call), and we’re finally ready to roll!

Installing Windows XP, Really

The first step to actually installing an OS is to insert the Windows install CD (DVD, actually) into your computer, then push the “play” button (rightward-facing triangle) in Parallels to start up the program with the new VM system. The system will prompt for a Parallels Desktop license code (which you did remember to request, right?). Enter that, and after a minute or two, your screen will look like this as you’re welcomed to the Windows XP Setup program:

Parallels - Windows XP - Welcome to Setup

This should already seem pretty cool if you’re a Mac person, because this is running within Mac OS X, yeah!

Now you can step through the standard steps of a Windows XP install in fairly short order:

Parallels - Windows XP - Partition Choices

You can work with the one unpartitioned space as-is, and when you get to the next screen I recommend you choose NTFS rather than FAT so that you have a higher performance Windows virtual machine. Note, however, that FAT is the file system that Mac OS X can more easily navigate if you want to actually access files within the Parallels virtual partition.

Continuing along…

Parallels - Windows XP - An Exciting New Look!

Somehow, “exciting new look” probably isn’t intended to refer to the fact that we’re installing Windows XP within the Mac OS X environment, but it’s amusing nonetheless, isn’t it?

At this point you’ll go through some rudimentary Windows XP configuration questions, about language, region, and related. Finally, you’ll hit the second of the legal interludes in this process:

Parallels - Enter Windows XP Product Key

If you don’t have a valid product key for Windows XP (or whatever OS you’re installing) you’ll be stuck here, though you can try running for the 30 days allowed before you have to register your OS product.

A few more simple configuration options about timezone, current date and time, and you’re finally into the installation phase of Windows XP, which can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours. I don’t have the patience to time it, so I’m not sure. Instead, it’s a great time for a chai break at Starbucks 🙂

When I come back, Windows is mostly installed and it’s just a matter of specifying a few more configuration changes. One thing that happens is that the virtual machine reboots itself and then automatically adjusts the screen resolution to escape the 640×480 hell that we were confined to for the initial installation process. Now we get a glorious Windows logo and boot screen within Parallels Desktop itself:

Parallels - Windows XP - Automatically Adjusted Screen Resolution

Now you need to do just a wee bit more Windows configuration, including what I consider a critical step:

Parallels - Windows XP - Protect Your PC with Automatic Updates?

You always want to select “automatic update” unless you’re a complete Windows guru and know exactly what you’re doing.

Next you’ll need to indicate if you want to register your version of Windows XP with Microsoft. If you’re going to use this for a long period of time, you might as well do that. Otherwise, select “no” and you’ll be reminded later when you’re perhaps ready to do so.

That’s basically all there is to it. We’re done. In just a few seconds Windows XP reboots and you end up with the familiar background screen, task bar, START button, and much more. All within the world of Mac OS X. Sweet indeed:

Parallels running Windows XP within Mac OS X

It’s not quite as snappy as Apple’s Boot Camp, as I’d expect, but it’s certainly a big improvement over the old sluggish world of Virtual PC.

That should get you going with Parallels Desktop. Questions? You might want to check out the Parallels Blog or pop into the Parallels Forum where users and developers compare notes.

Hope you’re up and running. I know that I’m delighted to have Parallels Desktop on my computer, finally.

Oh, and once you do have it running, don’t forget to also install Parallels Tools, a must-include package of utilities. Learn how here: Install Parallels Tools on Intel Mac.

طريقة اخرى

There’s been a lot written about Apple’s dramatic release of Boot Camp, a free download that lets you repartition your Intel-based Mac’s drive and install Windows XP as an alternative operating system, but even the magazine coverage I’ve seen doesn’t give you screen-by-screen details. So let’s see what we can do about that!

Your first step is to make sure you have an Intel-based Mac: any G4 or G5 Mac will not install Boot Camp and you won’t be able to dual boot into Windows XP. You can still run an emulator like Microsoft Virtual PC, but it’s an inferior solution and my own experience with VPC has been that it’s glacial and useless for all but the most simplistic of Windows applications. You’ll also need to be able to burn a CD during the process: make sure you have a blank, burnable CD disk on hand.

Now, download Boot Camp from the Apple site and double click on the “.dmg” disk image that’s dropped onto your desktop. Here’s what you’ll see:

Finder Folder View

Your first step, as highlighted in the “Read Before You Install” document, is to print a copy of the Boot Camp Beta Installation & Setup Guide. Trust me, you’ll want it!

Double-click on the “BootCampAssistant.pkg” icon and you’ll be able to install the Boot Camp assistant:

Installing the Assistant

As with all Mac software installs, this will require you to type in your administrative password. It’s probably the same as your default account password:

Authenticate

A few seconds of activity later, you’ll have the software successfully copied onto your computer and can quit this first installer.

Now your first challenge: finding the new installation assistant! It turns out that the program is installed on your computer in Applications –> Utilities –> Boot Camp Assistant. Launch it and it’s quite possible you’ll see the same message I did:

Update Firmware

No huge problem. Quit by clicking the “Quit” button, then go to Apple’s Support Downloads and check their Available Firmware Updates list to click directly to the firmware update for your own Intel system. For my Mini, I simply go back to the downloads page and scan down for the name of my system.

Once the correct firmware update is installed, you need to reboot, but not in the usual fashion. Instead, press and hold the power button on the Mini itself — it takes about ten seconds — until the power indicator light flashes repeatedly to begin the update. Your system will boot and you’ll see the Apple icon and a progress bar:

Supplemental Photos

That will advance, it took me about 90 seconds total, and you’ll reboot again, ready to go!

Finally, we’re ready to actually start working with Boot Camp itself. The first step is to read all of Apple’s warnings:

Warnings and Welcomes

Okay, now let’s proceed. First choice: do we want to burn a Macintosh Drivers CD, which contains important device drivers for Windows XP so it can access the various hardware parts of the Mac, or do we already have one. I don’t already have one, so I’ll choose the default of “Burn a Macintosh Drivers CD now”:

Burn Windows Drivers CDROM

I slip in the blank disk and the system tells me it’s “ready to burn”. Click “Burn” and it’ll do everything necessary to create the Windows XP drivers CD. This took a few minutes on my Mini, but it wasn’t terribly long.

Next step is much more exciting: it’s time to partition the hard disk!

Partitioning is a geeky buzzword for something that will actually make a lot of sense to you, believe it or not. The idea is that if you have a large hard disk, why not configure it to act like two small hard disks? Or three? In this way, smart system administrators can isolate accounts, minimize out-of-disk-space errors and disruptions, and so on. With Apple Boot Camp, we’ll want to partition the default disk to allow us to have one “disk” that represents the Windows XP world, and another “disk” that represents Mac OS X.

By default, Boot Camp offers up a pretty tiny partition for Windows, as you can see:

Create Second Partition

I’d recommend that you make it bigger if you’re actually going to use Windows for anything important; Microsoft recommends 10GB as the smallest reasonable and functional partition, for example. If you’re just playing, however, 5GB will probably work fine (until your first big game install). I’ll make mine 8GB to be somewhere in the middle.

Change the partition sizes by clicking and dragging on the vertical bar between the two areas until you have the size or sizes you desire. With my Mini configuration, it left me with 66GB for Mac OS X, of which 20GB is free, and 8GB for Windows XP.

Once the partitions are set up as you desire, click on “Partition” and keep your fingers crossed (there is a slight chance it’ll actually mangle everything on the disk. Not likely, but I would definitely recommend you do one good, clean backup before you start experimenting with Boot Camp).

The disk partition is what we Windows folk call non-destructive or dynamic, which means that you don’t have to reformat and then reinstall everything on both “sides” of the partition. That’s a very, very good thing. 🙂

Once the partitioning is done, you’re ready to install Windows itself:

Ready to Start WinXP Install

Fortunately, I have a pristine new copy of Microsoft Windows XP Pro with SP2 included for PCs without Windows (who would have thought I’d think of my Mac as a PC without Windows?) and that’s what I’ll use. My thanks to Microsoft for sending it along…

Insert the WinXP installation DVD, wait for it to be recognized by Mac OS X (it’ll show up on your desktop with a cheery name like “VRMFPP_EN”), click on “Start Installation” and kiss Mac OS X goodbye.

After a bit, you’ll see the unfamiliar blue screen of a Windows installation:

Supplemental Photos

Press ENTER or Return on the keyboard to continue, agree to the Microsoft warnings and legal restrictions page, and you’ll finally get to the “choose partition” list:

Supplemental Photos

Take your time here to ensure that you pick the correct partition! You want to use Partition C: which should match the size you just set too: notice on my screen it’s 8407MB, which is about 8GB, as expected. Move the highlight bar down to the correct partition and press Enter to actually install WinXP.

Now you need to pick a partition formatting option. The two main choices are NTFS or FAT. NTFS is more modern and supports very large partitions, but can’t interoperate with Mac OS X. FAT, on the other hand, can’t support partitions larger than 32GB, but is compatible with the Mac. You’ll see why that’s important later. For now, select FAT and do a full, not a quick, format:

Supplemental Photos

Now some time will pass while the partition is formatted using the Windows FAT32 format. It took my system about five minutes to fill in the progress bar:

Supplemental Photos

I won’t document every single step involved in installing Windows XP as it’s pretty straightforward. Just make sure you have your product key available for the verification step of the process. It’s in the package within the Microsoft Windows XP disk, and it’s really a good idea to use a new version of the OS rather than the same key you’ve used with other PCs in your office or home. Worst case, you can skip the verification step and have 30 days of “trial period” before you have to deal with finding a valid key to enter for verification purposes.

Once you’ve finished the full Windows XP install, which can take rather quite a while, your system will reboot and you’ll want to eject the WinXP install disk and slip in the Mac drivers CD you burned earlier in the process.

With Windows, this is done by going to My Computer and right-clicking on the optical drive D: then selecting Eject. Slip in the Mac disk and everything should just automatically launch and start up. If not, look for and double click on the file Install Macintosh Drivers for Win XP.exe. Here’s what you’ll see:

Supplemental Photos

I admit, it’s kind of weird to see a Mac installation program running within Windows XP on a Mac computer, but it’s a brave new world out there.

Probably, during the installation process, you’ll learn that various components of your Intel-based Macintosh haven’t passed the Microsoft Windows compatibility test:

Supplemental Photos

Apple assures us that it’s safe to continue anyway, so I did. Three times!

Then you get to go through a few waves of “new hardware found”, and in all cases you can simply accept all the default settings for each wizard, as those guys in Redmond call ’em, and proceed. Finally, you’ll get to the last configuration screen:

Supplemental Photos

Click “reboot now” and if the hardware compatibility Gods are smiling upon you, the Mac will reboot right into Windows and you’ll be the proud owner of a Macintosh that can run Windows natively, astonishingly enough.

One last tip: to select which OS you want to run, hold down the OPTION key when you start up the Mac and you’ll be able to see both Mac OS X and Windows XP:

Supplemental Photos

Use the arrow keys to move to the choice you desire, then press Enter or RETURN to select it and zoom into that mode.

When you do boot into Mac OS X, you’ll notice that there’s a new hard disk on your desktop too, called “NO NAME”. Click on the name, count to five, and click again, then type “Windows XP” and you’ll forevermore realize what it is. And yes, you can navigate through it and find your data files from when you’re running Windows, but I’ll talk about that in another article!

It’s a long, tricky process, but I hope this explains exactly how to install and get running with Apple Boot Camp. Also, don’t miss my tutorial on how to install Parallels to run Windows XP within Mac OS X, rather than having to reboot each time you want to switch systems.

Install Windows XP in Boot Camp on multi-partition Macs

When you try to install Windows XP for Boot Camp using Boot Camp Assistant, you are required to have a single partition to start out with. For those who already have partitioned their disks manually, this is truly inconvenient.

If you already have partitioned your hard drive, you need a manual installation method. Many of the installations with only one or two Mac OS partitions (in addition to Boot Camp) can be done by simply starting up the Mac with the XP installer disc and installing into the C: drive that it recognizes. (You will have to make sure the FAT partition is less than 30G, and that you do a Quick Reformat into FAT before install into C:). However, due to XP limitations, if you have more than two Mac OS partitions in addition to the Boot Camp partition (ie more than three partitions total), XP cannot handle it, as XP can only detect up to three partitions. If you try, it will force you to reformat the entire drive (including the MacOS portion) to NTFS … and that is not good.

The way to get around this three-partition limitation in the XP installer is to trick it into thinking that the Mac OS parititions do not exist. For this, I found that if you use iPartition v3, you can make your Mac OS partitions “vanish.” Launch the program, and in the partition inspector, uncheck the ‘Viewable by Windows’ box for all of the Mac OS partitions. Now when you boot up using the Windows XP installer, it will only see the partitions that were formatted in FAT (under 30Gb please!), and will lump all the other Mac OS partitions together as “unrecognized disk space” and ignore them.

This way you can have four separate Mac OS partitions (I have System, Applications, User, and EFI header — which is created for all IntelMacs) and the Boot Camp (FAT) partition, and you can still install XP manually. Once you conclude installation, one step that I didn’t see in other hints that stumped me (mainly because it’s the RTFM issue, and was my fault) was that you can get all the hardware drivers installed by simply inserting your Mac OS Leopard installer disc after rebooting into Windows XP. This will activate all the Ethernet ports, wireless, display, sound card, etc.

Install XP on Mac video tutorial

Windows XP on Intel MacI have to wonder what it’s like at Apple right now, what with everybody and their grandma installing Windows XP on their Intel Macs. Are heads rolling? Are doves being released into the sky? Do they even care? Well, if one thing’s sure, it’s that installing XP on your Mac is only going to get easier, ergo this video tutorial from UNEASYsilence, which donated $500 to the cause. The tutorial is about 12 minutes long, formatted for your iPod (a higher-resolution version is coming soon), and pretty easy to follow.

In related news, I’m pleased to report than OnMac.net (the home of the $13,000 bounty) has gotten a nice redesign, its forums are back up, and its wiki is coming along nicely, with a constantly improving HOWTO and a very handy FAQ for would-be installers.

تعليق

For my MacBook Pro, I didn’t use Boot Camp for the installation of a multi-boot. I made four partitions, one for Mac OS X Leopard, one for XP, one for Vista, and one for my works. With rEFIt at launch, you can switch from one OS to another.

How to: Video walk through to install Windows XP on an Intel Mac

mymacmini.jpg

This is a REPOSTING of the original article – Which ran on March 21, 2006
UPDATE: A higher quality version has been posted.

After instructions were posted on how to install Windows XP on an Intel Mac loads of questions were asked about the finer parts of the process. So we decided to to a quick walkthrough video of the entire installation process from start to finish to assist our readers.

The video is using the method on onmac.net (which we were a title donator), as well as mirrored here. Developments are always happening by the minute so bookmark http://features.uneasysilence.com/mactel/ to stay up to the minute about new changes and procedures regarding WindowsXP on an Macintosh.

The video is at iPod resolution to cope with the bandwidth, when the demand lessens I will post a higher resolution video.

شرح كيفية إطفاء جهاز الكمبيوتر بوقت معين أنت تحدده — و بدون برامج


كيف تطفىءجهازك بعد وقت معين انت تحدده بدون برامج ولا اضافات ولا شئ — مجرد بعض الأوامر .
الطريقة سهلة وحلوة وبسيطة ومافيها اي تعقيد ومفيدة جدا — لنفترض مثلا إنك كنت تقوم بعمل تنزيل Download من النت — وهذا التنزيل راح يكمل مثلا بعد ساعة وانت مستعجل وتريد الذهاب لمكان ما وتريد بعد الانتهاء من ال Download ان يقوم جهاز الكمبيوتر باطفاء نفسه بنفسه و تكون متأكد بان النت تم فصلة وجهاز الكمبيوتر تم أطفاءة بشكل سليم,,
اول شئ نروح على أبدأ start
بعدين تشغيل Run
نكتب الأمر التالى

shutdown -s -t 3600

مع مراعاة الفراغ بين الحروف
علما بأن الرقم 3600 عبارة عن ساعة كاملة– هذة المدة اللي راح يطفي الجهاز بعدها — طبعا تستطيع أن تزيد المدة أو تنقصها حسب تقديرك و ظروفك
ملاحظة : المدة تحسب بالثواني — يعنى الساعة 60 دقيقة و الدقيقة 60 ثانية — تبقى الساعة =
3600 ثانية — واذا مثلا تريد بعد ساعتين يطفي الجهاز 3600×2=7200 — وهكذا
بعد كتابة الأمر السابق وتنفيذه راح يظهر لك مربع يقولك كم بقى من وقت على ما يطفي جهازك ( بالساعة و الدقيقة و الثانية )

الان — لنفرض إنك رجعت بسرعة من المكان الذى غادرت أليه — قبل الجهاز ما يطفى — و عايز تلغى الأمر وتريد المتابعة في عملك على الجهاز — هتعمل أيه ؟ — العداد عمال يعد — تتصرف كيف ؟
نروح مرة ثانية على start — و بعدها Run
ونكتب الأمر التالى

shutdown -a

وبهذا نكون قد لغينا عملية ال shutdown للجهاز..
بس خلاص
