There is no <Scheme> entry at all, so I can t select the GUID PT file format ( or any other format ). Any ideas as to what I m doing wrong?

  • Problem with selecting System Preferences in macOS High Sierra version 10.13.2?

    Further to my last question, I now have a way to get to System Preferences and have set up voice control of Siri. But, the only way to get to SP is through an iCloud dialogue box, which comes up whenever I select the SP icon on the dock or Apple dropdown list. Can anyone suggest why this is so?

It was still not working properly so I used the recovery disk that I had created to try and restore it. Right at the end of the procedure an error message appeared saying that recovery had failed and no changes were made. I then switched off, and rebooted, hitting the option key. Now, the ONLY partition I can see is the Windows one and when I try to boot from it, an error message says that there is no OS!! How do I get back to the Mac OS??

  • I have a problem understanding ISO files.?

    From what I've read, an ISO file is a complete copy of a disc.

  • A question about file backup on Windows 10?

    I would like to reformat my hard drive. I need to backup certain files first. All of my important files are currently stored on an external USB hard drive, but a lot of application files are on the C: drive mainly in the Programs and Programs(x86) folders. If I want to save just my apps, I'm unsure as to what files need to be backed up.

For some reason, there are also 5 recovery partitions, all of different sizes, that I would like to delete. Apparently, to delete a partition you just right click on it and a drop-down list of options should appear, one of which is the delete option. What I get is just a dialogue box with the word 'Help' in it. Clicking this just sends me off to the internet. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?

    I am following a muscle gaining program at the moment. I seem to be making small gains thanks to following a better diet plan. But, hard as I try, I cant avoid gaining a small spare tyre of fat around my midriff, which is hiding any abdominal development that I might achieve. By cutting down on my carbs, I can lose the excess fat, but that leads to a catch 22 situation whereby I lose strength and endurance in my muscles, do to the lower glycogen levels, which prevents me from being able to train heavy to maintain what little muscle mass I may have gained. So how do the top body builders do it? I believe its called cutting up. How do they lose the fat without losing muscle mass?
