I followed this tutor here and got success: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE8If6gabUI. The "Create a Windows 7 install disk" option is hidden because your system's capabilities are limited. For instance, older Macs can not boot from external USB disks, therefore creating an installer onto a USB disk would make no sense. Still, if you want to create an ...

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 ...

Installing Windows 7 Pro 64 bit without DVD or Flash Drive 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 date and you have downloaded the correct "Boot Camp Support Software" for your model Mac computer. Before ...

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 ...

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.

Plug in a USB drive that is formatted with FAT while on Mac OS and run Bootcamp Utility, then select the download Windows drivers option. Reboot back into Windows and run Bootcamp.exe/Setup.exe either from AutoPlay or manually.

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

Boot to recovery mode and then choose the Mac startup disk might be the fastest way to determine if the Mac is still bootable. Apple documents this and the other ways to switch back and forth at: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204417 If you've meticulously done all the steps, you might ask a second follow on question with more details about what the ...

You can't set the bootable disk with bless if System Integrity Protection is enabled. This is because bless writes to NVRAM, which is prohibited by SIP. This is why System Preferences → Startup Disk is able to set the startup disk, but other binaries are not. To disable System Integrity Protection, you can do the following: Boot into the Recovery ...

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 ...

This was (or obviously still is in VirtualBox 5?) a known bug of VirtualBox 3 which should have been fixed in 4.0.0! The workaround is disabling the use of the new async I/O code... done by ticking "Use host I/O cache" for the SATA (and SCSI) controllers.

I don't know what do you mean by where to find /etc/apt/sources.list . It's in /etc/apt/ as the path indicates. You can edit this from your terminal, I prefer using vim. sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list, hit Shift-G to jump to the end of the file, followed by 'o' to go into insert mode on a new line and write deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main ...

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, ...

Disk 1 looks like a typical, bootable OS X drive with an EFI-partition (200 MiB), a main OS X volume and a Recovery HD partition (620 MiB). I can't say it for sure, but I'd assume your external SSD (disk1 in the Disk Management screenshot) contains a CoreStorage Logical Volume Group on the second partition (112.20 GiB). To check if the second partition of ...

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 ...

I set up a MacBook Air 2013 from scratch and tried to install Kali Linux 2.0. The install was successful, the big problem is the Broadcom wireless card though. But that's probably a second question. Here is what I did: First I made a fresh install of El Capitan 10.11.1 after repartitioning the internal drive to 1 partition with a GUID partition table. ...

Found that enabling developer mode under "Update & Security" in the system settings allowed the Boot Camp 6 update to install with no issue.

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 ...

Late model macs such as yours have good support for EFI boot for windows and OS/X. I assume you have installed both via EFI on a disk partitioned using GPT partition scheme. I am very familiar with the windows 8.1/10 cycle of trying to fix itself, it never will fix itself, this is something you need to help it with. I spent more than a couple of days last ...

One should never try to change drive partitions under Windows (Boot Camp): this makes Windows unbootable. I do afraid that now you have to re-create boot camp partition and reinstall Windows. Anyway there're (proved by people) ways (see links 1, 2, 3) to achieve what you want. PS. I personally prefer and recommend external Thunderbolt drive for the 3rd ...

File Clearing As user2277872 mentioned it's probably a good idea to get a disk analysis application to find out what's eating up your disk space. A few good applications to start with are DaisyDisk, OmniDiskSweeper and Disk Inventory X, each available here, here and here respectively. If you find no big files cluttering up your space, here's another link ...

Update 9 Good news, your "Recovery HD" volume has the correct identifier of disk0s3. So there is nothing to fix. I would not assume the "Boot Camp Support Software", you can download using the Boot Camp Assistant application, is the same as the Boot Camp Support Software 5.1.5621" required for Windows 7. Although, for my (21.5-inch, Mid 2011) iMac, I ...
