I had a crash! Before the crash I had some problems with Quicktime and Safari. Not sure if it was the trojan or something else. Bought a new 720GB drive and added it to the system. Loaded Apple retail 10.6.3, combo update 10.6.4 , combo update 10.6.5 and then 10.6.6. Except for fakesmc - it's pure apple os. Everything is fine. Done all the updates except 10.6.8 from apple software updates. No DSDT yet. It's a P45 board, Core Duo w/ 4GB. Everything works perfectly except 8500GT 512 card. Have not tried that yet. 9800GT will not even boot! It's what I was using before the crash. Not really concerned about that. 1024 x 768 for now. It boots very fast, all apps run nice and smooth.


Here's where I need help! I have a time machine backup on ext USB. All I want is all my apps (working the way they were) and my mail that's been saved. Bookmarks and keychain would save me a lot of time too. If it was the trojan - would it be safe to get these from the backup? Many of my apps have support files in other folders. Who can help me out?

Now that I have had a chance to need it - i would say that Time Machine is not such a good method of BU. It would not do the keychain. It probably does ok on a fresh install and just have it get everything. Migration assistant does ok, not prefect but always causes tons of permissions problems. I will be looking into something easier to use... Thanks for your help, rlf! It got me 95% there like you said.

      Did fresh install of Sierra (vanilla), and USB seems to be running well (Write benchmark to USB 3.0 drive @ 135MBps). Time Machine, however has only backed up 100GB in 27 hours. At this rate, it will take days to backup ~450GB.

      Any idea what might be going on here?
      Machine config is:
      Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z97-HD3 (rev. 2.1 / F9) CPU: Intel LGA1150 Core i7 @ 4.0 Ghz Graphics: Gigabyte GV-N970G1 Gaming

      Reconfigured my system using the Clover Boatloader (Love this configuration). After spending several hours troubleshooting I got it to boot. My issue now is I want to make a backup with Time Machine but it freezes between 350 - 600mb. I ran First Aid (Disk Utilities) which indicated my system and time machine hard drive have no issues.
      Here is some info:

      Motherboard: GA-Z77-HD3
      Clover v2k_r2652
      Installed the following kext: FakeSMC, RealtekRTL81xx, and NullCPUPowerManagement in the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.9/ folder.

      I haven't tackled the audio issue yet but can someone confirm it goes into the same folder above.

      Please note I did not use a DSDT.aml or SSDT.aml. I tried to stay as vanilla as possible then work out the non-working issues.

      Any assistance would be appreciated.

      P.S. Time machine worked perfectly with pre-Clover Chimera / [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installation.

      So, i figured i would install OSX on the notebook of my GF.
      As usual i made the backups before trying to do anything. Well, the installation was not really a success, so i went back to installing Windows on the machine. I wanted to restore the backup from my pc, guess what, somehow the data is gone, or has never been copied. I have no idea what went wrong, but it comes down to this, i have to restore the data from her HDD.
      I have it connected through USB right now, already found some files, but i'm looking for software that also restores the filenames etc, if possible. Currently i'm using Disk Drill.
      The drive has been repartitioned 4 times, has been formatted even more, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
      The system i use to restore the data is in my sig.
      Thank you.

      Okay so here's the run down of the dilly!!!
      I've been working at a pawn shop here recently and we got a macbook pro with mountain lion installed... The pawnee(?) never came back to redeem their pawned item so it's ours now to sell. Well my boss got this in before I started working there and he never asked the person for their username/apple-id and password. He's tried getting ahold of them, but their phone number is no longer in service.
      So how can we either factory restore or completely reinstall everything, it askes us to logon with the apple-id after a few steps from cmd(Or opt?) r, we registered his store e-mail with itunes and apple-id but it still asked us to sign in with the previous owners login. If I had a mountain lion disc could I just install it right away from cmd(Or opt?) b(I think it is?) I know we tried with snow leopard and it gave us that monochrome gray, black and white error screen, why is that?
      But how can we get around this? So my boss can put it out on the stores shelves up for sale...
      I'm trying to get the job done, help him and learn something new!
