Hey, all.

I'm kind of new here and need some help.

I'll try and keep it short.

I'm definitely not new to Macs...had too many to count at one point.

Well, I just got a MacBook Pro 2.2 Core Duo 15 incher. It's in excellent shape.

Well, I installed Snow Leopard. Put some files from a PowerBook and a MacBook on it. Had all kinds of permission errors. Even had blue screening every single day. Safari would tile, computer was sluggish (it has 4 gigs of ram), etc.

Well, I zeroed out the HD and re-installed just Snow Leopard. Guess what? I run the Disk Utility and I have tons of permission errors. 1 or 2 can't be repaired

After it's done "repairing", I'll run the DU again and there are the SAME permissions errors.

Anyone else have this problem? What's a good fix?

Anything you care to share or offer will be greatly appreciated.

Nuff said.

Perhaps some of the older PowerBook files are not compatible with the MBP and/or Snow Leopard. And do not worry about those permissions errors they mean nothing.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Mac OS X: Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions messages that you can safely ignore
Hey, thanks for answering. That link comes in VERY handy

Also, I should've mentioned I tried all of the fixes on Apple's site already. Didn't do anything at all.

Also, it seems to run really hot. My MacBook runs hot, too. They both have the "loud fan disease". The PowerBook is no more...I just have the HD.

Thanks.

Nuff said.
