As mentioned in a previous post, Latest Mac OS is now released to the public. It’s still in the beta version, So we can expect more unexpected circumstances. I had the luxury to install the new operating system on a Mac book Air and the experience was pretty good ( which I will save for another post ), Today is the day to welcome El Capitan.
Things you need to have
Apple computer – Of course where else would you install a Mac OS
Data Backup Plan – As we are dealing with a beta operating system, we need to make sure the safety of data. Like always, Backup of your data will save your from trouble. You can use Apple Time Machine feature for this.
Apple ID – This is needed to be enroll in the apple beta software program. If you don’t have an apple ID, You can create it from here
Good Internet connection – El-Capitan OS contains 6GB of files, So a good internet connection will surely avoid slow-internet-connection-disappointments.
3. Scroll down and find the ‘enroll your mac’ link
4. You will find a download link with the redemption code on the next screen.
When you click on the download link, Mac App Store will open with your redemption code already entered, and the download will begin automatically.When the download finish, Installation launcher will automatically launch.
Now it’s the time check your patience. Size of the operating system will be around 6GB so it would take some time to download.
In the installation process, Your Mac will automatically restart few times and it would take roughly around 15-20 minutes to complete the installation process.
Then you are good to go. Ladies and Gentlemen, Please welcome El-Capitan !
Rather quick post about a problem which I’ve encountered recently when I tried to set up a test environment of Windows 7 machine, I wanted to have a test machine with the latest windows updates. Each time I tried to update the test machine, I couldn’t go beyond the below screen, which was very annoying, considering the time I tried to do this task.
Google suggested few alternative ways to overcome the issue ( like restarting the windows update service from command prompt ) but sadly none of them were working form me.
Finally when I tried to give up updating my test machine, noticed a solution posted on a thread which actually worked for me. Here’s what you actually need to do If you ever encounter such a problem.
Goto start > type services.msc
Scroll down to find Windows Update service
make sure Windows Update service is stopped, else right click and stop it
Go to C:WindowsSoftwareDistribution and delete all files in it
Come back to services.msc and start Windows Updateservice

How cool would it be If a user can quickly split the screen space between two running apps?That feature is available in new OS<
Mission controller with multiple desktops
This is more likely the VirtuaWin software which used by Windows users. This would give the benefit for users to spot the apps they are looking for, even they are stacked on top of other.
There are more improvements done to the Sportlight / Safari- Browser and Photos as well. You can read more about those features on MacWorld
