New & Upgraded Macs in the MRT House
Joseph Nilo talks 12 Core MacPro and LED display. How is this beast, who needs one etc.
John F Braun:
MacBook Pro Repaired! Replaced logic board (claimed GPU issue, I’ve heard of this before with some Nvidia chipsets) upper case (which includes trackpad which was reporting errors in console) and keyboard.
While MacBook was being repaired, took drive out and decided, rather than wrestle with PowerMac G5 and data migration, get a Mac mini instead!
- Migration Assistant
- 2GB of RAM is not enough!
- Getting old Time Machine Backup working with new machine
- 10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes
- Requires use of “fsaclctl” command, which isn’t included with Snow Leopard!
- Pacifist, extract it from Leopard DVD
