I would like to find a way where I can screen share from MacBook to 22x iMacs.
We are running a medical imaging course and it would be beneficial for the delegates to see the slides and content that is being shown by the presenter on a MacBook on the podium up close on the iMacs which each delegate will have in front of them. They will be using software on them later in the day.

I know I could use the native OSX screen sharing software but I wonder if it has limitations when trying to share to 22x iMacs simultaneously?

I presume to maintain performance that an ethernet/switch setup is best rather than attempting a Wi-Fi router.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I have a Mac book pro which was running on old version - 10.9.7 with Windows running on boot camp. I am not familar with MAC side and always used windows only on this mac.

Recently, due to some issues on my iphone, had to take my phone and mac to apple store which ended up doing a big update on my mac i believe to version 10.13.7 and helped with my iphone restoral which was successfull.

I came home and logged in to windows and noticed that one of the partition on my windows side disappeared i.e Z drive. I originally had C drive and Z drive. I am not really concerned about the data on my Z drive as i do have it backed up but I am curious what happened to it ?  I checked disk management on windows and there is no partition.

I logged into mac side and could only see two drives BootCamp drive ( c drive of windows ) and the Mcintosh HD drive. It is as if my Z drive partition completely disappeared.

Two questions at this point:

1. Any idea what could have happened to my Z drive ? How can this just disappear ?  Is there something simple I am missing.

2.  Inorder to get Z drive back, I started process of Partitioning my Macintosh drive ( Currently 400 GB into 150 GB for Macintosh drive and 250 for new created Z drive )
     Its currently running the process and applying changes to the harddrive.

It is now stuck on this checking object map for about 3 hours now and I am concerned is it even doing anything ?  Mouse cursor is …

We have a mac in the shop that when you tunr it on you get the mac chime, then the apple logo, and then a progress bar. The progress bar move about halfway and then the screen goes white. We have tried online recovery, reset NVRAM and SMC, safe mode, and CTRL+R. None of these have gotten us anywhere. Just wanted to reach out and see if anyone had any other ideas. Client is a photographer and has tons of pictures on this mac. Was trying to keep from having to offload the pictures and reinstall.

What's the best way to update Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 (Mid-2010) from 10.6.8 to either El Capitan or Sierra or at least something newer than 10.6.8. We do not mind doing fresh install. We have other El Capitan Mac which we could use to create an installation image. Can we just install El Capitan and will it automatically activate and not ask for licence serial number? Will drivers still be available?

Regards,
Tom

Hi, I am a member of a website that has a number of AVI videos. I only use IPad Pro and do not own a pc/laptop.

I do not have access to ITunes. Is there a way I can watch these AVI movies directly from the website on my Ipad. I tried using VLC and input the http address but it does not seem to work.

Appreciate any assistance.

Hi, i had a friend of mine, she brought her mac laptop (model below):

- MacBook Pro, Retina, 13-inch, late 2013
Processor 2.4GHs intel core i5, Memormy 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Serial Number: C02LG613FGYY

She showed me that her Storage is 50.49 of Photos but she is aware that in her iphoto folder only has about 10 photos and the rest she had deleted them. She is confused as to why her storage is 50gb of photos - maybe they are stored somewhere which we are not aware of? Please can you advise?

An office of 9 Macs. All up to date OS wise. All are joined to the domain xxxxxx.local and can log on and authenticate as domain users.

Connecting to the server to access a share  brings this message: There was a problem connecting to the server. URLs with the type "smb:" are not supported.

Only happening on one Mac. Any ideas? I've removed it and re-added it to the domain fine!!! It picks up and IP address just fine but SMB seems problematic. I had been fine for the past 10 days since I bought and installed it...

Thanks.

A MacBook 6.1, white body, Intel core 2 duo processor, 2gb; currently has OSX 10.6 installed.
The OS needs to be wiped out due to bad malware.
It does not have a recovery partition.
Boot from a OSX 10.6 install disc, and  after selecting the preferred language, it displays, can not be installed on this device.

Not sure what else can be done.  

Thanks for any help!

I currently use Apple Magic Trackpad with a Lenovo 8" tablet (Android 5.1) for a customized field Astronomy setup. I'm looking for a very specific size and resolution (7.75" to 8",  1024x768 ) to replace the current tablet, but have found that Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility is spotty at best. Compatibility varies not just within versions of Android but also within point versions and also manufacturers. I'm trying to find a method to predict Bluetooth Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility within a certain device without having to actually have the device in my possession to test it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have an iMac running Sierra. This is connected to a network printer in a small office. The network printer has a static IP address. The other Macs in-network, have no issues printing to this device at any time.
On the iMac in question, my client is running Parallels with Windows 8.1 installed. Simply put, they can print from the OSX side only when Parallels is closed. After you open the virtual machine, the printer simply goes to Offline and cannot be connected to. There is no problem printing in the virtual environment.
Obviously, they can close Parallels to print to get by, but ultimately this is a system that did work up until a week or two ago. I have reinstalled the latest printer drivers from the manufacturer in OSX. I have also found many, many forums addressing this exact issue. Some dating far back, but none of the solutions see relevant to my scenario. The client believes they may have changed a setting in Parallels inadvertently. This is plausible but honestly, I am a PC/Network guy and do not interact much with OSX.
Ultimately we just want them to be able to print again normally in OSX and Parallels simultaneously.
