    iPartition was a great find, but it didn't help. I booted into the 10.6.8 partition so I could allocate more space to 10.9, but it wouldn't let me.

    Assuming I can't get this work the way I hoped...

    Hard disk partitioning

    I have an older MacBook Pro (early 2011) with three HD partitions:
    1. with OSX 10.6.8
    2. with OSX 10.9
    3. with OSX 10.12

    I use the second partition the most and I'm running out of disk space. I...

    So I reset the SMC and I also followed the recalibration procedure I found in another thread here. Works again, yay!

    Thanks much,

  7. Calibrating the battery level display

    Hi all,

    I have an early 2011 MBP 15". It's got a replacement battery inside which worked well for a while. Now the capacity has gone down drastically, or so I thought, because I was about to trash...

    A blessed system folder! I haven't heard that since college when we had to make sure our system 6 folder had a Mac icon on it to show that it was blessed. Some things don't change after what... 30...

    So here's what I did today:

    - grabbed another MBP (mid 2010), which has a unused 10.6 and a working 10.9 partition
    - wiped the 10.6 partition and did a fresh install with the original disc.
    -...

    None of these build numbers appear on the disc. In fact, the build number does not appear on the page you linked! Wow.
    No, I have not contacted Apple about this. I will though, if I can't get this...
  11. Great, I'll try that today. Thanks much!

    Great, I'll try that today. Thanks much!

    It's gray, unfortunately. My white retail disc is only 10.6.3, so I was hoping that by getting the 10.6.6 disc on ebay I'd solve my problem. I'll try the target disk method today. I have backed up...

    Good point, I guess what I meant was that I cannot pick a partition when the installer starts. But yes, I *can* unmount partitions, but that does not stop the error from appearing. Now I did leave...

    I do have another Mac, but I don't know about target disk mode. What would that do?
    BTW, we used to be almost neighbors (I'm in Germany now, but I used to live in Saanich :-))

    Yes, I do have 10.6.6. From an older disk the Mac won't even boot, if I recall correctly. This one boots, but says it can't install. No further details are given. And I cannot eject the partitions...
  16. Yes, I ve started up from the install disk by...

    Yes, I ve started up from the install disk by holding 'c'. The disk boots fine, asks for the language setup and then I get the message. I can use the disk utilities and such, but it won't install.
  17. Creating a partition for older system

    Hi all,

    I want to have a partition on my MacBook Pro (early 2011) with 10.6

    I currently have 3 partitions

    1) empty
    2) Mavericks (mostly used)

  19. Double entries in SL context menu

    Hi all,

    as probably one of the last persons on the planet, I upgraded my MacPro from 10.5.8 to 10.6.8.

    Sometimes, the wrong application wants to open a document, so I often click on a document...
