lion – 2011 iMac 27 ": can not upgrade to the latest OSX after replacing the failed drive with a new blank hard disk Nasty loop

Installation of a new hard drive on a 27 "iMac 2011: the old drive could not boot (FSK unresolved node errors) .This failed drive was running High Sierra before stopping to boot .

Removal of the old drive and installation in an external powered box.

  1. New hard disk installed – but remote installation of OSX is limited to Lion (10.7), as Apple's remote recovery only reinstalls the original supplied OSX printer.

  2. I can not find any way to find the recovery partition on the old drive.

  3. I've tried to update OSX from the App Store but the shopping list of my account shows no OSX (many of my apps though)

  4. I can not check my Apple App Store account settings as "To edit your payment information, you must upgrade your Mac with the latest version of macOS." (That's what I'm trying to do!)

  5. I've tried to download El Capitan from the beautiful Apple page configured for this, but by clicking on "Get", it is stated that Paypal will send me a message to confirm the account, but that's not the case. was more than a day ago.

  6. We also discovered how to use the terminal (fsck_hfs -r / dev / disk1s2) to try to rebuild the catalog on the external enclosure now connected with the old drive. Said that it can not be verified after the execution of the order.

My questionSo, how can I upgrade the operating system, when I can not access the App Store or the Apple App Store account, nor find the recovery partition on what is now the drive external, and that I can not get a CD with the operating system?

Even though I could find the recovery partition, I can not see information on how to use it, except maybe booting the external drive into target disk mode. (which will not work because it will not start)

Short of options … thanks to the good people in advance.

The best thing I can think of is to find a way to copy the recovery partition of the old disk to the new disk (because I can read the old disk), but where is the partition?

Low light – Upgrade course for indoor sports photography from a 7D + Samyang 85mm f / 1.4 MF lens

As long as you do not use all your potential, upgrading your equipment will only improve your results if you also improve your knowledge, skills, technique and experience.

The remainder of this answer will be devoted to shooting still images, the video part being specifically off topic here. Keep in mind that the 7D does not have the ability to continuously autofocus when recording video, so the response to the use of the video will be totally different. You'd better learn about video shooting in this situation at video.stackexchange.com.

The development of autofocus technology over the past 30 years has been driven by the desire to apply it to shooting sports and action with greater precision and consistency. Of course, it is fine for other applications, but AF technology has always been at the forefront of sports and action. It is there that the gains were first made and that they can then be applied to other forms of photography.

If you want to play sports or action in a dimly lit environment, the usual approach is to use the larger aperture to achieve acceptable image quality. This makes it possible to take pictures at a lower ISO than would be used with a very narrow aperture. Reducing the noise required when shooting in a dark environment at very high ISO, such as ISO 6400 with the Canon 7D APS-C, will reduce image detail to the point that the entire image will be anyway fuzzy, even if it was taken at f / 11. Also, keep in mind that for high-resolution still images taken with the 7D, the 7D's limited diffraction aperture (DLA) is f / 6.9. From f / 11, we can probably start to see the details reducing the effects of diffraction, even when looking at the image at less than 100%.

The 7D has a highly configurable AF system. It takes work and practice to learn to use its full potential. As with any complex tool, the more options available, the more users need skills to use these options to their advantage. This is not the most consistent autofocus system in terms of image-to-image accuracy, but it works well enough for many photographers to get good shots of action.

Shot of action
Canon EOS 7D + EF 70-200mm f / 2.8 L IS II, ISO 2500, f / 2.8, 1/400 sec.

Shot of action
Canon EOS 7D + EF 70-200mm f / 2.8 L IS II, ISO 1600, f / 2.8, 1/200 sec.

If the 85mm focal length gives you the desired field of view, use an AF lens such as the EF 85mm f / 1.8. It's a pretty popular 'budget' goal for indoor sports shooting. Use it at f / 2.2-2.8 with the shutter speed that you can get depending on the movements of your subject and set ISO on what you need to get a sufficiently decent exposure. Depending on your workflow after shooting, you can leverage the power of raw image processing to use shorter shutter times than would otherwise be the case.

Should I buy a new DSLR camera or spend money in a photography class with my point & shoot?
What's better than a Canon d1100 but still affordable? (The accepted answer to this one includes many links to other related questions that might help you understand how the photographer contributes in an essential way to the quality of an image, while recognizing that sometimes , an item of equipment may be part of the problem.)
Can we take great pictures with a material not so good?
Will a better lens help high speed skate shooting?
Why are my photos not clear?
How to diagnose the source of the problem of focus in a camera?
I can not get clear pictures when I shoot a concert from a reporters' site
This answer includes a large number of links, grouped by main cause, to other questions addressing various problems affecting the sharpness of the image.
A lot of noise in my hockey pictures. What am I doing wrong?

Or you can continue and totally change the system because you are using the wrong lens in the wrong way for what you are trying to photograph.

hardware – Macbook mid-2010: no power supply after ssd upgrade

I've replaced my hard drive with an SSD drive with the help of the ifixit guide on my MacBook Unibody, model A1342 (mid-2010).

But after reconnecting the battery, the Mac seems to be dead (Magsafe light off, no chime, no fan, nothing). I've tried another charger that works perfectly with another Mac without success.

Any chance that it is "only" a problem of battery? Or the logic board is dead? Or any other solution?

how to safely upgrade glibc to version 2.18 on CentOS 7

update – Upgrade Kickstart Commerce 1.x for PHP 7.3

The Kickstart Commerce Profile 1.x has no version for the new Drupal 7.61 kernel.

But I need Drupal Core 7.61 because I have to go to PHP 7.2 OR PHP 7.3 (as PHP 5.x is not supported now).

So what to do now?

It is possible to "delete" the Drupal site profile? (do the Drupal site because it was not done with the profile)?

Or can I just upgrade the Drupal kernel from 7.60 to 7.61, regardless of whether it is based on Commerce Kickstart 1.x (now available in version 7.x-1.53)?

Upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04 crashes on startup

I will try to make it as concise as possible.

  • Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L builds approx. 2010
  • Ran Ubuntu 16.04 for two years
  • Upgraded to 18.04, now hangs on the purple screen immediately
    after the mouse cursor appears at the bottom right
  • It looks like a graphical problem, but …
  • Creation of the USB Flash Drive and, having spent far too much time on the "dreaded problem of booting from gigabytes to USB", can now boot from
    this
  • Ubuntu works well from a USB key -> graphics ok ??
  • Ubuntu installed several times from a USB stick, nothing worked
  • Finally ran from a USB key and formatted the hard drive, reinstalled from the USB key
  • Always have the same problem.

Nothing I do seems to change the problem of booting the hard drive, but it seems to work normally from the USB key.

I know the basics of Linux, but I'm not very familiar with low-level fixes.

Any suggestions on where to go? Reading the forums suggests that it may be the old graphics processor (no external card, but only the VGA integrated into the motherboard), but it works from the stick, which suggests that the graphics are correct.

5th dnd – Can I upgrade an adamantine armor costume that I discovered to have a magic bonus of +2 AC?

DMG states in the Chapter 9 section on creating magic items:

The magical items in Chapter 7, "Treasure," are just some of the magical treasures that characters can discover during their adventures. If your players are seasoned veterans and you want to surprise them, you can modify an existing item or suggest something new.

Although the existing list in Chapter 7 of the DMG is not exhaustive, it is a list of immediately available elements. As with almost everything in D & D 5th, the deputy minister can modify or create just about anything – but that does not make those changes / creations less "homebrew". .

This is very similar to the PHB language for equipment (Chapter 5):

table brings together the most commonly available types

The types listed for armor, weapons, magic items, etc. are real lists and not examples – these are just not exhaustive lists.

If you are looking for an existing set of Adamantium Armor +2, you will not find it in the books. It is 100% that the DM creates it and determines its rarity and cost. To do this, they can refer to the guidelines, but the item is not an existing item.

Upgrading the armor

There are no existing guidelines in the rules regarding the upgrade of a magic object. If and how that would be done, it would be a homebrew of your DM.
