Where would I get such software? A few days ago I installed 12. I didn't think I'd be able to download Lion to the Macbook Air, but does look like that's working fine. If this means what I think it does, you have a Lion installer app in the Applications folder of the MacBook Air. I lent the computer to my dad fast forward 3 months. Is there anything weird going on here that I should be aware of? I am at a loss as to what to do now.
It seems like this is possible, but I'm many hours into this process. To only way to know for sure is if you have access to another working Mac or if you have a working external startup drive. Hold down the option key when booting until you see the bootable devices show up. I'd like to solicit your advice regarding my options. I was hoping I could just cleanly restore from my hd time machine backup which works fine since I'm using it to boot from now without having to involve the internet. Do you have a Time Machine backup? Sound: nok Sound does not work. Hello Everyone, I really need help.
It was bootable from my more recent macbook pro but not from my 2012 macbook air. So I reboot and start up the installer, but the Ubuntu splash screen comes up garbled and it stays there forever. How to get dvd or usb options when they are not listed? So I noticed there was something wrong. The hard drive in macbook 13 inch, white failed a few days ago. But when I go to DiskUtil it shows the Hard Drive has no partitions on it. You can check the screenshot to confirm though. Your method looks like I would be rebuilding from scratch.
In order to do this, I read I need to be able to go into recovery mode as I boot my system up. Sorry, I am a somewhat recent Mac convert so I'm not sure what you mean. I've tried Mavericks, El Captain and Sierra unsuccessfully. I hope it is the latter. Just call ahead to make sure. I tried booting the ubuntu cd with that installed, but it didn't work it boots, but it has the problems mentioned above.
Let me know where that gets you sorry I don't have the reputation to only commment, so I will try to guide you through the process I don't need help on partitions, thanks. It is the full body aluminium with the Superdrive. I want to clean install using usb or dvd. I wanted to dual boot mac os x with ubuntu 14. I keep getting errors in everything I do.
. A friend of mind is buying a new MacBook Pro 13 today and may want to run Sierra on it because of old software. ? Instead, as before, I am going directly to my logon screen. I tried wulfderay's suggestion the currently voted answer to reset the pram and it didn't help. I understand that startup disk settings are stored there. It's a common failure in macbooks from around 2009.
This 2009 MacBook Pro should be able to boot anything from Leopard, Snow Leopard, Yosemite to Sierra. Some of the commands don't work.

That way, you can play around with Sierra and easily switch back to El Capitan if you end up not liking the new operating system. After repartitioning and setting up the drive again, I could boot to it by choosing a boot drive from inside disk utility in recovery mode. It doesn't work at all.
The shape is the same but totally white with a black horizontal stripe on the bottom of it depicting the disk slot. Really need help on this one. I just want to restore the machine. I may try a new partition on one of my other 4 internal bay drives, but this seems like using a thumb drive is such a no-brainer.
