Partitioning and formatting drives in OS X is much different than it is in Windows, even though the concepts are similar. Apple’s Disk Utility application ships with OS X, and it is simple yet powerful. It gives you a great deal of control over your disks by Apple Computer Repair Hong Kong and Mac Repair Hong Kong.
Partitioning a Disk
1. Connect your drive to the Mac. If you have an internal hard drive, follow Apple’s instructions for installing it in your machine. If you have an external USB or FireWire hard drive, plug the drive into a port and power it up.
If you are using a Flash drive, simply plug it into the USB port. If the drive is already formatted, OS X will mount it, and it will appear on the Desktop. If OS X cannot read the drive’s format (or if it is not formatted), OS X will prompt you to partition and format it.
2. Launch the Disk Utility application if it has not already launched.
3. Choose the disk you wish to partition from the list in the left pane, and then click on the Partition button. The current partition information, if there is any, will appear in the right pane of the window.
4. Choose the Volume Scheme from the drop-down menu in the right pane of the screen. If you choose to create multiple partitions, you can resize the partitions by dragging the divider between them on the screen, or clicking on an individual partition and entering the size in the Size field.
5. Enter the Name of each partition, and choose the Format from the drop-down menu. If you want to use the partitions on Windows machines, make sure to choose FAT as the format type.
6. If you would like to boot from either of the partitions, click on the Options button. If you would like to boot an Intel Mac, choose the GUID Partition Table. If you would like to boot a PowerPC, choose the Apple Partition Map. If you would like to boot a Windows computer, choose Master Boot Record. Once you are done, clickOK.
7. When you are satisfied with the settings, click Apply. OS X will unmount the disk, repartition it, and mount the partitions on the Desktop.
Formatting a Disk
1. Choose the partition you would like to format from the list of partitions and drives in the left pane.
2. Click the Erase button.
3. If security is an issue, click on the Security Options button. You will be given additional erase options, including performing a zero-fill, and performing multiple-pass erases. Choose the option that suits you and click OK.
4. When you are satisfied with the settings, click the Erase button near the bottom of the window. OS X will unmount the partition and perform the erase actions you selected. When it is done, it will re-mount the partition.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 for additional partitions and disks you would like to erase.
When you are done, if you would like to shut down, disconnect, or eject the disks, don’t forget to unmount them so your data does not get damaged. To do this, you can drag the disk images on your Desktop to the trash.

The word "Technology" is soon to vanish. Its place shall be occupied by "Green Technology". Green technology may be costlier to implement as all R&D projects are but in the long run it shall be cheaper in all respect. Cutting down on costlier raw material consumption and recycling zero cost waste as raw material will certainly make green products cost friendly and help to carve a better world to live.

You have home improvement plans but you just cannot seem to find the right budget scheme to be able to finance a few works around the house. This scenario is not rare as more and more people have to put up their homes for sale due to the recent economic crisis. Some others just want to move out and needs their houses to be put up for a price. windscreenReplyDelete

Homeowners typically choose to loan to fund this project instead of drawing money from their own pockets immediately.

I Like Technology. I'm conceding all the good and fun things that computer-based technology has brought into our lives; I'll not fight that battle. Not only would I lose any argument against the wonderful additions technology has made to our lives, I would be fighting against myself. But technology has the power to draw us in and cause us to lose perspective about what is happening. Just try talking to your child (or maybe your spouse or best friend) the next time some slick TV program or commercial is shimmering across the screen and you'll see what has all of their attention.

The average lifespan of a car battery, although roughly pegged at three to five years, can be boosted further by adhering to a consistent and disciplined approach of upkeep. Poorly maintained 4-wheeler batteries can cause massive trouble in the longer run - more so when the current battery dies, leaving you helplessly stranded and in dire need of a jump-start. If you take the necessary preemptive measures and maintain your car battery in top-notch condition, this situation can be easily avoided. LiFePO4 Battery 12V 100AhReplyDelete
