>Mac OS X 10.4.10 update problems

21 Jun

>After installing the Mac OS X 10.4.10 update on the brand-new 20-inch iMac, it didn’t come up after reboot anymore. All I saw was the Apple logo and this spinning wheel.

Thanks to the support guys from the Apple shop called ‘The Innovators‘ (Tilburg, Netherlands) the problem was quickly fixed as follows:

  1. If you don’t have one, then buy a FireWire 400 connecting cable, so with the same connector on both ends.
  2. Connect 2 Macs using the cable.
  3. Restart the faulty one and hold T while it boots. You should then get the FireWire logo on the screen. The harddisk of the faulty machine is now mounted on the other one.
  4. Download the combined Mac OS X update.
  5. Run the update package from the good machine.
  6. When asked for a destination, select the other machine, connected via FireWire.

That’s it 🙂
