marleni: link 3 not working.......
OwGosHh: so if u don't wanna have that lion partition anymore (u wanna continue using the os x mountain lion), u just delete it?
RJSingh88: When I try to create a partition, the "+" sign is blurred out and won't let me create it. I am currently running OS X Lion 10.7.5. Any advice on it?
Yannsonnboys Yannick: Thanks man it is very amazing what you do.
Thanks a lot
Maazin Ahmed: Hello Jonathan and everybody else here, I need some help ASAP. Got some Partition problems. I have got three partitons. Macintosh HD(OS Lion), Mountain Lion and Untitled(this was my bootcamp). I want to go back to using only Macintosh HD but with Mountain Lion installed on it. How do I proceed? Somebody please help me. How do I get rid of the partitions "Mountain Lion' and "UNTITLED" and add the space to Macintosh HD?
RJSingh88: I tried creating a 2nd partition but it wouldn't give me an option to create it. How can I fix that?
Ryan Wills: So, If I were to create a partition, could I transfer data between the two once ML was installed on the new partition?
Dhrumil Patel: i have DVD mountain lion,i also create partition but when i hold option keys only i see Mackintosh HD and Recovery..what can i do now PLZ ..HELP..
samdeur: good one ;-) are you going to use rEFIt for the dualboot ??
fspilot1000: would this work to make a lion partition on mountain lion?
Darien Balgobin: nice vid
Ryanthemagicalwizard: So however much memory i dedicate to the mountain lion partition will be how much storage I have to save file, music etc on when i'm using mountain lion?
spyrmak: you dind't show the actual install . launch the installer choose show all disks selecet the other partition etc
spyrmak: i haven't done it but if you do a dual boot with snow leopard ( 10.6 and 10.7 or 10.8 ) you can erase the partition but only if you you boot from the dvd
spyrmak: yes but i think from the recovery partition only- with disk utility . you cannot erase the partition when you have booted normally . you will need to boot from the recovery partition( hold ALT/option key ) after turning on the mac before the apple logo appears . it will show you both the Macinthosh HD and the recovery HD . and any other partions such as the extra partition you want to erase . you boot from the recovery HD launch disk utility and erase the partition from there .
Maazin Ahmed: Is it possible to UNDO the partition?
lovely2626: what about if i already did a partition but want to give ML more gbs
Andrew Seodyal: Wow, it's so easy on a Mac.
EasyDownloadHelp: which mic were you using for this video?
ReliableStupidity: please update the annotation links at the end of the video. it would make for a smoother experience.
semifullyauto: @tldtoday Hi, I was wondering if you could make a video showing how to setup an SSD once it's in my machine (partions,etc.)
Kathleen L: Can you do this on a external hard drive?
thattechgooru: how long did it take to download it hasn't even started and i got it the day it came out
TechMyLifeVideo: Hey Jon the video 2 and 3 links don't work at the end of the video. Thanks.
BluGameNTechTV: hey john, quick question. I will do this partition, but I need advice as too how much space to allocate to the ML drive. I only need Lion for VMWare fusion that im using for windows 7. Besides that I will use Mountain lion for everything else such as gaming, browsing, and doing work. I have a mid 2011 iMac top of the line, with a standard harddrive and 1TB of total space on it.
Stephaughn Alston: Are these basically the steps I take when I'm putting an SSD into my system and want too put a fresh install of Mountain Lion on it?
Ignacio Magana: i want a macbook
MadMoneyBanks: Partition Failed for me :/ Any ideas of what I should do Jonathan?
nyacomputing: One option is create yourself a USB lion recovery disk and use it to restore lion by rebooting with the cmd + R keys pressed down to enter recovery mode.
If this doesn't work (saying this because you need a machine running lion to create a recovery disk, unless you can find one) you can delete all you partitions using a linux CD and restore it using network restore ( need a newer mac though for it to work).
Note - Make sure to backup your data.
see my site for related stuff.
fabio matos: hi
Millad Moaddab: Jonathan, I really want and need to delete my mountain lion its so buggy. I want to go back to Lion no video on Youtube is that good at explaining. Please help
Robbyzbot: Hey Jonathan, whats Google Chrome Canary?
cprrowberry: Can't you just select the partition from the install app for mountain lion instead of creating a usb disk?
AllTechPride: Hey, checkout my HUGE iPhone 4S GIVEAWAY on my channel !
Damon Lam: Isn't the term dual boot a little misleading? From my perspective dual boot means I can parallel use both OS. But that's just from me.
MountainLionHelp: For anyone that cannot find the "SharedSupport" folder in the Contents of the DMG, do not worry
I made a video on my channel on how to fix this, it's very simple!
guitarmanGS: Hey Jonathan, after I do what you showed in this video, do I just install Mountain Lion on it's dedicated partition?
Gustavo Lima: What did u do for the devices appear on the desktop on Lion?
Rubr1k: I use a quality vs quantity thinking, included when writing my last comment. Fewer uploaded videos of high quality => less fragmentation, easier to find videos. Some videos also use annotations to skip to a later part in the video, is that something you could consider instead? "This process will also work for creating a regular boot drive, click this annotation".
Take it as my opinion on it, or constructive criticism. Some youtubers tend to get angry over stuff like this, so I hope you wont :)
linkred878: Thank you so much
bladeleonidas55: U rock
Tony Mongkhoune: Does this work for snow leopard?
Sean Tsaur: I hate how in mountain lion it only has the option to show battery percentage and not battery time in the menu bar.
peachycandy13: whats the whole point of doing this? cant i just do it withought the difficult usb transfering thingy??
