    Well this solution turned out to be a short term fix because for a couple weeks now, both my wife and I are back to where we were with excessive battery drain. Unfortunately we’re at Apple’s mercy to...

    As the others have pointed out, you can't increase the resolution if the resolution isn't there. That said, I did a little reading and found a discussion in another forum that may be worth...

    This absolutely isn't an Apple issue, or even a VMware issue. Since you did a clean install of Catalina and then migrated your apps and data over, there are bound to be a handful of hiccups. Most...

    Since that comes standard with 8GB RAM and an SSD, then as long as you have sufficient free space, it should do well. As always, make a backup first (full clone recommended). I personally don't...

    After making a backup of course, what you do is open the Settings app, go to General, then Reset, then Reset All Settings. This does not erase any content on your device, but will reset every system...

    Change isn't easy, but thankfully there is a thriving market with older Macs that you can rely on until you are able to fully transition to where the future will be. It sounds like you have a solid...

    LOL! This discussion was over a week ago. It was chill by the tine you chimed in here, chief. Believe you me (and believe those who are more familiar with my earlier days here), I'm known to get...

    Ok, so I can't explain why I can't get High Sierra to run in a VM (I kept getting errors about the installer being corrupt, even though it was direct from Apple), but Sierra is running just fine.

  10. I can tell you that I did have High Sierra...

    I can tell you that I did have High Sierra running in VMware Fusion just fine on my 2019 iMac running Catalina, although I deleted the VM since I wound up not needing it. That version is not...

    Well aren't we feeling saucy today? Well I'm arguing it's not, so I suggest dropping the subject and maybe thinking better of suggesting someone is facilitating piracy without better cause for it in...
  12. Calling this software piracy is one heckuva...

    Calling this software piracy is one heckuva stretch there. There's no DRM being broken. No illegal downloads involved. You may as well claim that the apps I mentioned are piracy tools since they are...
  13. If he can get a bootable installer made, then...

    If he can get a bootable installer made, then he's good to go. The problem is that the package that Apple provides as a download must be launched first from within OS X to make the actual installer...

    I wouldn't recommend either if something newer can be run (unless one specifically needs Snow Leopard for Rosetta). He just needs one or the other of these as a path to getting the El Capitan...

    I don't think you can upgrade the cpu in a MacBook Pro. I've not heard of it being done... I'm fairly certain it's soldered in and iFixIt doesn't have a guide for it.

    Dangit! I overlooked that specific pre-requirement. Now I get why he wants to make the installer via Windows. Welp, it can be had for 20 bucks, but you have to call Apple.

    I took another look over all the replies in the thread here. With all the voices, things can get chaotic. So, it looks like you previously confirmed you have Mac OS 10.5.8 currently installed and...

    You only have 5 GB of free space on the hard drive? There’s problem number one. Your drive is effectively full. You will not be able to do anything, and I mean literally anything, until you free some...

    All of this is certainly possible. Arguably it’s easier with Mac OS X than Windows, at least in some respects. Let’s figure out just what you CAN do right now. You keep talking about using Windows...

    I’m not familiar with TransMac but I did some quick reading and it looks like it can do the job. I’ll post some links and instructions, but I gotta address a pet peeve first. “Mac” is short for...

    I largely agree with IWT's assessment. You mention having 5 GB memory, which must be a typo because that's not possible (at least I don't think you can get RAM in that configuration. If you did, it...

    You can also set up a Synology Diskstation to serve as a Time Capsule. This may be a really great alternative since Apple is getting out of the biz.

    Apple's instructions for how to rename it are found here, but it looks like you are doing it correctly. They do have a note that the device will reset to its default name if it is paired to more than...

    The value to Time Machine that can't be understated is the ability to recover older versions of files that you may find a need to recover at a later date. I ran into this myself when I updated a game...
