So I dug up my old MacBook Pro, It previously had El Capitan running on it.
The el Capitan was kind of getting slow, so I opted for making a factory reset(Erase mackintosh HD).
Now I am trying to boot from a USB flash drive that I created in TransMac, however when I use the alt boot, it doesn’t show up in the bootable drives. It does however show up in the Disk Utility when I boot with CMD + R.
Tried clearing PRAM,NVRAM,SMC.
Why in god’s name should such a straightforward task take me 5+ hours to unsuccessfully troubleshoot, whereas it takes me 3 minutes on a regular windows PC to setup.
Anyway, suggestions are more than helpful.
Edit: I also tried the reinstall OS X option from the CMD + R menu, although I get stuck there since apparently my appleid has not been tied with the el Capitan that was previously on the system.
My wallet in 2009. I’ve been looking for a long time, I found my key. I logged in with electrum, the addresses were fine, but my bitcoins did not appear. “not available for this wallet” is written in the wallet information section. I think I should use another wallet system. How can I open my wallet in Bitcoin core?
Back in 2009 the original founder of Low End Box, “LEA” published an early version of what became the deal marketplace of Low End Box. That page has been inactive for years and years because it is not commercially relevant anymore, but is certainly interesting to check out to see just how far we have come in the past 11 years in the hosting industry.
Specifications have grown by 10x to 100x and prices have come down at the same time. Over that same period of time the traffic on Low End Box has gone from only a few hundred visitors a month to thousands a day. Add into the mix the traffic going to Low End Talk and the combined annual traffic on Low End Box and Low End Talk is 3800% higher now than in 2009.
Take a look at the deals published in September 2009 – 11 years ago!
Now fast forward 11 years to an offer review published in May 2020 to compare (a lot has changed):

I’m Jon Biloh and I own LowEndBox and LowEndTalk. I’ve spent my nearly 20 year career in IT building companies and now I’m excited to focus on building and enhancing the community at LowEndBox and LowEndTalk.
I believe the only possible answer for this time (assuming you mean 2009, no wallets existed before then with recovery mnemonics) is that the wallet was blockchain.info. Different to now, at the time it used a “recovery mnemonic”, which was an encoding of your password rather than the keys in your wallet. Unfortunately if this is the case you need to also know either the ‘wallet identifier’ (looks like fbb4b1dd-1b30-4cc2-b745-b586e4f3cb57), or the original wallet.json.aes file.
I know that many new members don’t know how the Bitcoin value has been over the past years! Let’s see together how valuable it was from 2009 to this day! 2009 : 1 BTC = 0.001 $ 2010 : 1 BTC = 0.008 $ 2011 : 1BTC = ( Feb : 1$ , July : 31$ , Dec : 2$ ) 2012: 1BTC = 13 $ 2013 : 1BTC = ( Apr : 266$ , May : 130$ , June : 100$ , Nov :1,242$ , Dec : 600$ ) 2014 : 1BTC = 1000- 700 $ 2015 : 1BTC = 500 – 400 $ 2016 : 1BTC = 700 $ 2017 : 1BTC = ( May : 3200$ , Aug : 4400$ , Dec : 19,400 $ ! ) 2018 : 1BTC = 8000$ 2019 : 1BTC = 9000$ 2020 : 1BTC = ( Jen : 8500$ , Feb : 10,000 $ )
Give me if you read this for the first time !
In theory, this may because the explicit consensus rules have not changed. However, in practice, it will not be able to synchronize without some special modifications.
First of all, the network version is so old that no modern node software will accept connections from it. In addition, the format of network messages has changed since the first version so that it now contains a checksum of the message. The first version of the Bitcoin client did not have a checksum for messages. This difference in the network protocol will result in messages that do not make sense to any of the nodes in a connection.
In addition to modifying the network message, the original Bitcoin client will not be able to find nodes to connect to. It could only connect via the use of IRC node discovery which has since been disabled and removed. So you will need to specially build the peers.dat file so that it can find a peer to connect to.
Finally, the original Bitcoin client will not be able to synchronize beyond the 2013 fork unless the number of BDB locks is increased. Using the default settings, it will miss locks when it reaches this period and therefore fail to synchronize.
If you can avoid all of these issues (for example by using special node software specifically for synchronization) and increase the number of BDB locks, then the original Bitcoin client should be able to synchronize the current blockchain, although very slowly and possibly never being able to synchronize with the tip. Towards the current blockchain point, it will probably take longer to validate a block than it takes for a new block to be found.
Several months ago, I modified a version of Bitcoin Core to make it compatible with Bitcoin 0.1.0, and then I try to sync it. The code for this is here. I stopped this experiment after a few days when it could only synchronize 25,000 blocks.
I charged the battery to 100% (worked fine) and started it. Everything worked, except that I cannot start on battery. The battery itself is fine, so I can connect the charger, hit the start button, and it starts. I can then disconnect the charger and it will continue to work. But without the charger, it just won't recognize the press of the power button.
I tried to reset the SMC (Shift + Ctrl + Option + Power button) and reset the PRAM (Cmd + Option + P + R like 5 times), but nothing has changed .
My MacBook Pro 2009 (A1278) has a problem. When I turn it on, it displays a flashing folder with a question mark. I've tried most of the options I've seen, none of them showing any sign of doing anything:
Command and R simply shows the missing file
Command Option and R Displays the Missing Folder
NVRAM Reset does not do anything
The only thing that shows signs of progress is to hold down the Option key after turning on the power. It shows an empty screen with a mouse cursor that I can move.
Very rarely, it shows a glowing globe with some kind of hard drive underneath, but it disappears again in a few seconds in the mouse cursor.
I've even tried putting an external hard drive formatted for Mac, but my MacBook does not recognize it at all.
Is this a problem with the cable plugged into another SSD while I have an external SSD? I have no idea.
I have another MacBook with me that has helped reformat the external hard drive for Mac.
