Installing Windows 7 Pro 64 bit without DVD or Flash Drive Special thanks to user Rafa, who was able to correct this procedure so it now works with Windows 10. Here I assume your computer is configured as required by the Boot Camp Assistant. (In other words, you will be installing Windows to the 4th partition on disk 0.) Also, your firmware is up to ...

Here is the page which helped me to enable this option http://crshd.github.io/2014/11/16/Creating-Windows-USB-on-OSX/ Creating a Windows installer from OS X is actually quite simple - Boot Camp Assistant can do it for you. If you’re on a newer machine without an optical drive, you probably have an option that says “Create a Windows 7 or later version ...

Yes, you can do it. The instructions are originally for Windows 8. Some terminal commands might be a little different for Windows 10. You will need : Windows 10 x64 ISO file a running Windows installation real or virtualised a blank external hard drive Apple Bootcamp drivers (obtained from the BootCamp setup) on USB key Microsoft AIK Format and prepare ...

Here's an updated procedure for Windows 10, based on orkoden's excellent answer. I tested this process on a MacBookPro11,1 running OS X 10.11.5 (15F34). Throughout the process, directly connect all devices to your Mac. I found that certain operations failed more frequently if I used the USB hub in my monitor. In addition to the external drive that will ...

The new Keyboard driver on Bootcamp broke the connection for my keyboard under Windows 10 and it might break yours too. So after using the solution from Zidad for the last couple of months (thank you) I decided to find a better solution to be able to use the Fn button and all the volume and multimedia functions of the Apple keyboard, here is what you need ...

To expand your CoreStorage Logical Volume Macintosh HD you have to delete the blocking NO NAME EFI partition (disk1s5). The two unnamed parts (138.62 GB and 99.9 GB) are no partitions but unallocated disk space. To remove the second EFI partition (and expand Macintosh HD) you have to boot to Internet Recovery Mode or an OS X system on an external device. ...

When you don't use the Boot Camp utility to remove Windows, the Windows boot image on your EFI partition is not removed. This is what you see when you hold down ⌥ during boot. The procedure to solve this is not for the faint of heart. You need to mount the EFI partition in OS X (normally, it only gets mounted for system updates). Mounting the EFI partition ...

I am currently using Windows 10 TP (Technical Preview Build: 10240) on my MacBook Pro Late 2011. I am using Boot Camp with the drivers made for previous Windows versions. I haven't had any issues with using it but after upgrading to an newer build I was needing to reinstall the driver package again to get it to work properly. Also, as Steve Chambers said in ...

I have installed Windows 8.1 Pro via Boot Camp on my MacBook Pro Retina 15-inch mid-2015, with OS X Yosemite 10.10.4 and Boot Camp Assistant version 5.1.4. I can prove that this version of Boot Camp is no longer creating hybrid GPT/MBR partition scheme to install Windows 8 x64 on Intel-based Macs, and Windows is directly booted in EFI mode. Here are what I ...

You can set the default boot partition from the option-boot screen. Press the Control key while clicking the arrow beneath the drive, and that should do the trick.

The following steps explain how to install Windows 10 on a hard disk drive (HHD) which replaced the original optical drive. The primary drive is assume to be a solid state drive (SSD) with the disk identifier "disk0". The HDD is assumed to be the secondary drive with the disk identifier of "disk1". Note: If your OS X is El Captain (10.11) then you need to ...

I think because you download an iso and mounted it (open it) and that silly error pop out. I just unmount and it's work

You can't simply merge a Bootcamp partition or empty space and a FileVault volume with Disk Utility (Boot Camp Assistant should handle this though). You first have to remove the Bootcamp partition and then expand the FileVault volume. To remove the Bootcamp partition and resize the CoreStorage Volume Group (containing the FileVault volume) the Mac has to be ...

Windows' Disk Management has overwritten the GUID partition table with something unknown. This usually only effects the partition table but not the content of your disk (though it seems to be gone)! A proper GUID partition table has to be restored. The particular obstacle here is: the OP neither has a thumb drive nor a second Mac. Preparation: Backup the ...

The formatting should last undefined amount of time, as there are many factors potentially involved, such as disk encryption or using slow external USB drives. Before cancelling the task, you should verify if there is no progress indicated by the app, for example by marking the position of progress bar with some other window or mouse cursor, and checking ...

An alternative to the disabling encryption is to use command diskutil cs resizeStack The details on how it works has been documented by Klanomath here One thing I wanted to add is that it also works with FileVault. I have tried and the performance was pretty good. It took me 5-8 minutes to resize the 230GB partition to 250GB. To sum it up: Firstly: Boot ...

Rob has the gist of this because Apple has not released official Windows 10 drivers and installing Windows 10 on your Mac may or may not work. That said often times you can use previous Windows version drivers on the next version. That often worked when Windows 7 came out, you could use Vista drivers and they usually worked. So it is possible that ...

I upgraded to Windows 10 on a Macbook Pro 2013 model. Everything work fine except hotkeys. I reinstalled the apple keyboard driver and now those work! Note: drivers can be found at https://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1720/en_US/BootCamp5.1.5621.zip

I updated from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro 15 inch Retina 2013. Best is not to do a clean install but choose to upgrade the existing OS, Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. This will avoid a lot of problems with the authentication key you need for Windows 10 and the necessary drivers. Windows 10 will use the Bootcamp Windows 8. 1 drivers which are ...

My problem was I answered "Don't keep any personal settings and data" when Windows 10 installer asked what to keep and then it deleted all of the Apple drivers including Bootcamp. So my bluetooth, the sound driver and a couple of other devices were not installed and no matter how hard I try I couldn't get them installed. Make sure you would choose "keep ...

Below are some basic steps to install the Boot Camp Support Software and configure Windows Update before updates are downloaded from Microsoft. Windows Update can only be configured if you are installing Windows 10 Pro or better. I do not know of a way to configure Windows Update for Windows 10 Home.

While you could technically use dd to image a smaller partition onto a larger partition and it still show using the space of the smaller partition you'll not be able to resize the NTFS partition using Disk Utility. Also the GPT and PMBR will not be synced and that will need to be resolved. Windows 7 will also need to be reactivated. That said, using ...

According to Apple's Knowledge Base article, your iMac isn't supported directly in Boot Camp. https://support.apple.com/kb/HT204990 You should probably get VirtualBox or another VM solution to run the Windows 10 as that would bridge the driver gap better than trying to piece things together yourself. It might be possible, but I don't know where you'd ...

To free up space in your EFI partition, you would have to first mount it. This can be done using the command given below. Enter the command in a Terminal application windows. diskutil mount /dev/disk0s1 Below is an image of the entire contents of my EFI partition. I assume you can delete any folder and/or file other than what is shown below. (Actually, ...

Turn your Mac off. Turn it on, but hold down the Option key until you see images of two hard drives on screen. Use the arrow keys to select "Recovery", press enter when you have selected it.

Gah. After searching for an hour, I finally found the link just minutes after I posted this question. Go figure. You can get the Windows 10 .iso here after answering a few questions: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO

a) how to get bootcamp startup disk back? You have an additional 24.9 GB partition between the "Mackintosh HD" and the "DATA" partitions. This means you have 5 partitions (if you include the hidden EFI partition). The "BOOTCAMP" partition is the 5th and last partition. The Apple software is designed by default to search for Windows on only the first 4 ...
