I had a special request from a client to downgrade his used iMac from 10.11 to 10.6. First and foremost, you can’t use the retail Snow Leopard disk as it is 10.6.3 which does not have the driver for the i5/i7 CPU. You’ll get three beeps as you try to boot from the install CD. […]

Just replaced my dead Blu-Ray burner with an LG

I am going to make a bet with myself that this drive will die within six months.  I’ll report back in six months if the drive is still working and by working I mean being able to read disks properly. I hadn’t seen a reputable optical disk drive/burner since the days when Plextor still made […]
