Updating leopard

Please be patient with the Mystic Messenger walkthroughs. This will be easy to raise the love meters ^^ Tell me more about Rika and V - (no hearts) Yes, please tell me more. There is A LOT of content to cover in the span of an entire route - including multiple [relationship] endings (good/bad/neutral/etc).

updating leopard-31

Interestingly enough, I tried doing each of these things entirely on it’s own and it did not resolve the problem, it was the combination of everything that seems to have ‘fixed’ my airport connection problems.* Turn Airport on & off (via menu or Network preferences) * Delete and then recreate/reestablish wireless network connection * Create a new Network Location * Make sure your router firmware and Airport card firmware is up to date * Zap the PRAM on your Mac (hold Command Option P R on restart) * Flush the DNS cache using the Terminal command: dscacheutil -flushcache * Delete the and files from ~/Library/Preferences * Trash your home directories System Configuration folder and reboot – Remove all files within ~/Library/Preferences/System Configuration/ and reboot your machine.Make sure you delete the proper folder, this is in your home directory.* Launch Disk Utility * Select the Snow Leopard DVD within Disk Utility * Click the “New Image” button at the top * Name the image and put it somewhere you can find it easily (Desktop) * Click OK and wait for the image to be created Easy enough right?Ok so here’s how you create a bootable Snow Leopard installation drive out of your external firewire or USB hard disk.As some readers pointed out, this step isn’t required.

If you do need to, you can create a DMG file of the Snow Leopard disk, this is very easy.

* Launch Disk Utility * Select the External Firewire/USB device that you want to use as the boot drive for the upgrade * Click “Partition” from the menu options * Select 1 Partition, then click “Options” below the partition scheme * Select the top option for “GUID Partition Table” – it MUST be GUID to be bootable!

* Click OK to create the GUID partition (this will reformat the drive, ie: all data is lost) * Next, click the “Restore” tab within Disk Utility * Select your newly made Snow Leopard 10.6 Install DVD image and restore this image to the GUID partition you just created OR…

If all else fails, try this, which has worked for some individuals: * Reset your Mac’s System Management Controller (SMC) : Shutdown the Mac Book/Pro, remove the battery, disconnect the power, hold the Power Key for 15 seconds.

Replace the battery, reconnect power, and zap PRAM and wait for 2 chimes before letting the keys go.

Update: Mac OS X 10.6.3 has been released and contains a few Airport bug fixes, it would be wise to install that software update in addition to trying these tips.
