Updating 10 4 8
Is there any possibility to update the i Mac to MAvericks 10.9 without loosing any Data and without installing the complete System new ?Thanks for your Help Rottman57If you did not previously purchase Mavericks from the app store, then you can not upgrade to Mavericks at all any more. I don't see what "installing the complete System new" has to do with anything at all...Hi, I want to update my i Mac with 10.6.8 to Mavericks 10.9.Unfortunately Mavericks isn't available any more in the Mac App Store.El cappitan does not work with my professioanl software. If I use Snow Leopard , I cannot access my El capitan drives. Because Apple decided to no longer make it available, that's why.Some regular contributors here have suggested you go to a local Apple Store and ask the Geniuses there if they have access to copies of OS X10.9 Mavericks that can be install on customers' computers if they need that version. Make sure you have a proper backup of your computer and data before doing this, if this turns out to be possible.On a laptop that old, it is more likely that your hard drive is failing. when I try to install it says to get a new copy from the App store, but cant find it.I have a variety of macs and MUST use Mavericks to be able to to access my drives with el Capitan.
These types of apps will only cause your Mac issues later after the install of the new OS X version and you will have to completely uninstall these types of apps later.
You can use this update to upgrade your system software to version 4.85.
If your PS3™ system software version is 4.85 (or later), you do not need to perform this update.
The use of Rosetta ended with OS X Snow Leopard as the Rosetta application was licensed to Apple, from a software company called Transitive, which got bought out, I believe, by IBM and Appe could no longer secure their rights to continue to use Rosetta in later versions of OS X.
So, you would need to check to see if you have software on your Mac that maybe older than, say, 2006 or older. If you have any commercial antivirus installed and/or hard drive cleaning apps installed on your Mac, like Mac Keeper, Clean My Mac, Tune Up My Mac, Mac Cleanse, etc.
