    That's a sweet deal...I wish I know about this early, sorry . Have you tried to press and hold the Option key immediately after hearing the Mac startup chime. Continuing to hold this button down will bring up a menu where you can select drive to boot from. Use the keyboard arrows to choose your boot device, then press the Enter key. The computer will start up from the chosen volume, but bear in mind performance will likely be much slower than when you normally operate your Mac.

    I just switched to a MacBook Pro Retina from a PC (my boss would not buy me another PC) and I have been trying to setup windows 7 on my MacBook through Parallels. I got this genus idea to download windows 7 iso file off some website because my employer's windows download only downloaded in exe and the iso conversion of that isn't working. Now every time I use my MacBook, the windows 7 iso file from the website keeps showing up in my downloads folder and is apparently running. When I delete the files, the files will not delete sometimes saying it is being used and if I can delete it, the files come back the next time I turn on the computer. HELP! My distaste for macs is growing stronger. Thanks.

    Edit: I guess it went away

    Yea. I have tried everything. Even took it into the local apple place and they couldnt boot either by network, usb drive or superdrive/external drive.
    They suspect the vid card, just dont want to risk paying that kind of money for one and that not be it.

    Ok Apple Nerd, this one has got me stuck. I have a bunch of DTS "DVD Audio" albums that I'd like to rip to iTunes. So far I can't do it with iTunes or Digiarty MacX DVD Ripper Pro. Any idea how to convert them to AAC/MP3, etc?

    I have a question, can i take a movie we own on DVD, put it on my computer (MBP) and put it on my Iphone 4s?
    I'm going on a 9 hour plane flight tomorrow and the airline has it setup so you can plug in your phone and watch movies that are on your phone on the tv in the seatback in front of you.

    This is more mechanical then technical but i was wondering. . . On the new Imacs the 27" one to be exact, Does it have some kind of locking mechanism to keep it from tipping up and down? Everytime i position it just right at eye level it always seemed to sink down... Not sure what to do?

    Never seen this before, it might mean the battery needs to be serviced.

    Bottom line up front--how do I get snow leopard (then lion ota) onto an mba 2009 with a new hdd and no previous backup? I have the laptop, hdd installed, snow leopard disc, and usb disc drive. PROBLEM: snow leopard will not recognize the hdd, therefore will not install. WHAT I'VE TRIED: pre-formatting the disk (via ubcd), wiping the disk. What now?
