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 ...

Then Bootcamp Utility would pick up where your manual preparation ended, and ...

You can sacrifice sound or sleep mode and use the AHCI (it is extremely fast), but there isnt way to make it fully functional so far. So now I am using bootcamp and IDE. Problem is with the emulation of the BIOS, its too old.

If you want to EFI boot the installer you need to flash your firmware from MacPro4,1 to MacPro5,1. Create an installer like mentioned here without any bootmgr files to force an EFI boot. Remove all disks from Mac Pro to avoid further trouble with Mac EFI looking for MBR or protected MBR. EFI boot your installer. Be sure to clean the unneeded Bootcamp ...

Got it working finally... The first trick is to remove ALL disks from the MacPro when trying to load setup. You may leave clean HDDs or SSDs where the Mac EFI cannot find MBR or Protected MBR. After you removed all other disks the MacPro4,1 will not directly freeze after choosing EFI Boot on the installer stick. (You will have to create it like mentioned ...

Yes. As discussed in the article If you don‘t see some Mac features when using Windows on your Mac, "When you upgrade or reinstall Windows on your Mac, you might need to reinstall or update the Windows support software (drivers) provided by Boot Camp." Note in particular, "If you don't see this option, choose Action > Download Windows Support Software ...

The use of Core Storage seems to be a common denominator in problems similar to mine. I used the sudo diskutil cs revert [Logical Volume guid] command in the Terminal application to get rid of Core Storage, and then restarted. Presto! My missing GBs were returned. The above command can only be used if the command diskutil cs list shows the Logical ...

I needed to run Windows XP because of one particular program which doesn't run on more modern versions of Windows. I have just discovered that the easiest and cheapest way of installing XP on a Mac is to download "VirtualBox" which is free and open-source, and use my XP installation disk which also has a valid product key. The procedure was extremely easy ...

You can simply create a new partition using Disk Utility to regain those 60 GB for usage. Another possibily is to change the size of your existing partition, depending on its current file system.

Based on your hexdump, I have determined a NTFS partition existed immediately after the last partition shown in your GUID Partition Table (GPT). The hexdump also shows the size of this deleted partition. The values printed by hexdump are described in the table show in the section titled Partition Boot Sector from the Wikipedia site NTFS. Using this ...

Your computer uses two partition tables stored on your internal drive. The first is the Master Boot Record (MBR) partition table and the second is the GUID Partition Table (GPT). You used the commands fdisk and gpt to print out most of the contents of the MBR partition table and GPT, respectively. For the most part, Windows (booted via BIOS) ignores the GPT ...

The solution for fixing Boot Camp Assistant was the same as with previous versions of the OS: reset the NVRAM. I found a discussion mentioning a similar problem with an upgrade to Yosemite here that I intiially disregarded as it referenced repairing permissions and running a Disk Verify, neither of which Disk Utility appears to support anymore. As for ...

I had the same problem. I was installing Win 8.1 by bootcamp on a MacBook 12" early-2016. The internal keyboard and trackpad did not work. I was using the USB-C to 3 ports adater with only one standard USB. So I tried to unplug the installation flash drive and plug a usb mouse. It worked, though obviously I cannot continue to install without the flash ...

Alright, I fixed it. I installed a Live image to my flash drive and copied the TestDisk software to it. My live image was Windows 10 To Go, but I believe any OS could handle it. Then, I ran a scan using TestDisk, and re-enabled the "deleted" partitions. After doing this, I wrote the new GPT to disk, and rebooted. Held the option key, and the partitions ...

The problem is not that you don't have an MBR. The problem is that an MBR can only have 4 partition entries. On an out-of-the-box fresh install of OS X, you'd be using 3 of those partition entries already; one for the EFI partition, one for the Mac HFS partition, and one for the recovery partition. That leaves only one MBR slot available for the Boot Camp ...

Author of the question answering: It's not necessarily a disk failure since I installed my SSD into a friend's Macbook Pro (same model: retina 15" late 2013, 2.3Ghz) and it works properly.
