Hi,

My iMac is showing white screen when booting up - I guess i need to reload the OSx.

I will backup my data inside prior installing the OSx.

Please can someone guide me on how to fix this (reinstalling my windows)?

Also, why would it act this way?

imac model no: a1225, emc no: 2211

Best regards,

Looking to help a friend who uses a mac - I only know windows.

He says it's running really slow.  Where would you start to troubleshoot?  

Is there an equivalent task manager to show what's running / what's taking processor power?

How do you tell if the hard drive is full? (is it the same as windows - you don't want the hard drive near full because of temp files /  etc?

How much RAM would you want on a machine these days? What mac would you say is just too old for casual business use these days?  Me, I don't like celerons or any other processors others than i5 or i7 (maybe i3).  Yes, core 2 duos run windows, but sevearl year old windows PCs just crawl with all the patches / updates / etc on a windows machine.  same for a mac?

And for windows, I'd want 8GB+ RAM.  4 would be the lowest I'd deal with.

thoughts?

Are there any whole disk encryption solutions out there that would support a bootcamped Late 2016 MBP?

I used to use Symantec Whole Disk Encryption, but they do not support the latest hardware.

Filevault 2 will only encrypt the Mac startup disk, and bitlocker would only encrypt the windows side.

We are trying to figure out alternative methods, like installing Windows 10 first and then running Mac OS as a vm where we could run a whole disk encryption, but Symantec does not recognize the SSD.

Windows is a must have as the primary OS.  The push for the Macbooks over a PC is that management loves their Macs.

Any ideas?

Please forgive my ignorance, I'm an amateur and have learnt my lesson!!

I have recently upgraded to OS Sierra and I didn't realise how full my HD was - I hadn't checked in a while and there were no warnings.
 
Yesterday, I went to use my computer that was in sleep mode and it was really slow, wouldn't shut down or restart, so I saved everything I had open and turned it off using the button. When I tried to turn it back on it got stuck on the loading bar and when I checked it this morning it was stuck on about 80% and wouldn't move. So, I did the dreaded turn off and wait and on again, same result. I then did the command+R to access the disk utility and it would not let me repair (first aid) and it would not let me restore onto the external drive I just bought to back everything up onto (yeah I know I'm so prepared!!). Obviously because the external HD isn't installed, it doesn't recognize it and I tried to install it using the online help in disk utility but the internal HD is too full.
 
When I tried to repair it, it said 'file system verify or repair failed' and when I tried to back it up it said something to do with the partition map.
 
Please help! I don't want to do anymore damage!
 
Thanks in advance.
