NVMUG Meeting


Room 224

Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital

10:00 AM to 12:000 Noon

Got a new Macintosh with Lion or newer? Downloaded and installed Mavericks or Yosemite and the install application is gone now? What do you do if your hard drive fails, to get your operating system running so you can migrate from your backup drive (You are backing up on an external herd drive aren’t you?) or Time Machine? At the meeting on April 11, we will be showing how to have operating system available for install from an USB flash drive.

If you are ready to update to Yosemite or have it installed, and you want to be able to have it handy in case of need, swing over to the App Store and download the latest version of it to your computer, using your Apple ID. Bring along an 8GB USB 2.0 or 3.0 flash drive and your downloaded install application, if you have a good decent speed internet connection.

You’ll be shown how to make the install USB drive from the Install OS X Mavericks or Install OS X Yosemite application a couple different ways and how to use the drive to do some repair work. Yes, you can use the recovery partition to do the same, and we’ll show how do that as well. But, if your drive bit the dust and you can get a quick replacement drive, you can use this USB drive to replace the OS on your hard drive without having to do a lengthy download on your internet connection.

We will also answer questions from the attendees, during times that we wait for images to be made.

Hope to see you there.

Read the concise report from Midge Lubot about the August 16 meeting here to see how much good information there can be in a Meeting with no planned agenda..

Planned future programs will be announced here, but we have had great success with unplanned meetings where members bring in information of interest, prolems to solve and questions to answer, and share their interests. We all learn from the sharing of information. Please come to the meeting and bring your questions and experiences to share.
