It is not a trivial task - it's easy the other way round, but not this way… Converting/Cloning a Parallels VM to Bootcamp on Mac has the full details, but this is the précis… Process Outline These are the basic steps required to get the job done: Create the Boot Camp partition and make it bootable. Copy the source vm’s filesystem to the boot camp ...

klanomath is essentially correct. It's been a while but when you run Bootcamp it creates a bootable thumb drive with the Windows installer, Apple drivers and files necessary to boot your Mac. When that part is done it prompts you to reboot and after a while gives you a simple graphical view of your disk space that you can drag left to make the Windows ...

I don't know what exactly happened, usually it works. To get back to your original disk layout, just format the unallocated space with the Window installer (FAT32 or NTFS), boot to OS X and open Bootcamp Assistant. Skip building an installation medium or downloading any drivers, just remove the Windows Partition. If that doesn't work give me a comment. ...

Download on Mac from http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/downloaddrivers.php Depending on write support, copy to Windows partition from Mac or from Mac partition in Windows. If direct install doesn't fix it, try uninstall from Device Manager, reboot & install again - seems to have worked for others.

I tried this some 2 weeks ago on my retina 15" Mac. The usb I used was Kingston HyperX 128 gb, 3.0 . It ran WinToGo which is basically windows 8. I wanted to play Battlefield 3 but the result were very poor, I actually never managed to play multiplayer because servers kicked me for being AFK :D If you want to try some less demanding games it might work, but ...

First step: don't delete "useless" files. If the first step was not done properly, please continue to the second step. Second step: Perform a recovery. This will restore the OS to its original state but will leave your user data intact.

This is unlikely to work, though I haven't tried it. If I may esplain... The bootcamp drivers are for windows running on a specific number of Apple Macintosh computer models. In other words the drivers are for specific computers. The Parallels VM is an emulated PC that may or may not have any compatibility with the Apple hardware. It's kind of like going ...

Have you installed the Boot Camp drivers for Windows? These give Windows access to the extra keyboard functions such as the brightness control you need. If you haven't then boot into OS X, go to Boot Camp Assistant in Utilities and it will download and install the specific drivers for your model onto a USB stick for you. Alternatively download them from ...

Great post, it really worked and I'd buy you a beer for saving me from reinstalling Yosemite. Now I don't have to hear my wife complains about "System Disk Space is full". Took me a few days to find this answer but I'm glad I did. A few extra tips: While you are in "Recovery Mode" - also do a Repair Disk on the main OSX partition. I had a couple small ...

The best way I found is to go into the power plan settings and go into advanced settings then under display disable adaptive brightness.

OK, now i got my installation screen back How could i solve this problem? I just remove a blank NTFS partition (label as WINDOWS_HD) and leave it be a free space. That's all.

The (fixed) Pre-Installation Environment (boot.wim) of your Windows_7.iso doesn't contain the necessary drivers to use the USB3-interface of your Early 2013 Macbook Retina. To circumvent limitations (new drivers, new hardware) Microsoft uses the $WinPEDriver$-feature to provide drivers at installation time. Apple Boot Camp uses this method to provide the ...

When you reboot your machine, hold down Option to bring up the boot menu. You should (and I say 'should' because it may not be the case with your particular build of the Windows installer image) have a few options there, the normal Macintosh HD and Recovery 10.x, and then a couple of Windows options. One should be a regular BIOS link to the Windows ...

There is no need to delete the CoreStorage Logical Volume Group. Just resize it: Have a backup! Reboot into Internet Recovery Mode (hold Option-Command-R) as the machine is restarting). You'll eventually be presented with a Max OS X Utilities window. In the menu bar along the top of the screen, click Utilities -> Terminal. At the prompt, enter ...

In my case my macbook's keyboard was disabled after being connected to a miscellaneous bluetooth trackpad somewhere in my house. I used keyboard shortcuts to get to System Preferences and disable bluetooth and fixed the problem that way. If your computer is connected to both a trackpad and a keyboard via bluetooth, you might alternatively have to locate ...

So what I just did was I pluged my bootable usb drive (from bootcamp) back in and went into bootcamp>drivers>Cirrus then clicked the exe and it auto changed the drivers and enabled my microphone as well. hope this helps!

You should be able to delete the partition, and you would be able to re-use the space to create a new partition (of the same size). For some reason (not technical) OS X (lion or later) won't let you resize partitions on MBR disks. You could delete using gparted from a Linux live CD or many partitioning tools. You don't say what you are proposing to use the ...

I had the same problem and I HAVE THE SOLUTION. The problem is that when you install Windows with bootcamp it is creating a Logic Volume Group. What you need to do is delete the Logical Volume Group. Very similar to if you have ever undone a manual fusion drive. Bust out terminal: diskutil coreStorage list Copy the Logical Volume Group ID diskutil ...

Try holding down the alt key while powering on your Mac. This should yield a boot device selection. If this doesn’t help, try booting in Recovery Mode as outlined here: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT4718 There you can run Disk Utility to check wether your partition is corrupted.

That's an old bug in the BootCamp prefs. Just reboot and hold the alt key to get to the boot menu. Then choose your Mac OS X partition to boot into Mac OS X.

Hyper-V isn't available for Windows 7. You have to install at least Windows 8 Pro/Enterprise or Windows Server 2008/2012. (Source) You might install Hyper-V Manager (probably you did already) though. This application allows to manage Hyper-V hypervisors installed on other computers meeting the above mentioned Operating System requirements.

Apple provides Windows drivers (via Boot Camp) for all aspects of the hardware it is running on, so yes you can. You'll need a TV with an HDMI input, a Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable. After that the Mac, regardless of whether it is running Mac O/S or Windows will see the monitor as a display device and should be able to detect the optimum ...

If you are truly dual booting (using Boot Camp) you will find your battery life better on OS X than on Windows. However, when you boot into OS X, you won't suffer any ill effects from having a separate Windows partition sitting idle. If you opt to run Windows in a Virtual Machine (using, for example, Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion, or Virtualbox), you ...

Firstly - Sorry for bringing up an old question - I just spent a year trying to find the answers and only found questions so I figured I'd answer a past one with my solution Resize Bootcamp partition 1) Boot to MacOS and use disk utils to shrink MacOS partition leaving unallocated space on hdd <-- I believe you are at this point based on the empty space ...
