Are you dual-booting or using a VM? Unless you have a specific reason for it like critical h/w performance or driver incompatibility, I always prefer using a VM for ease of use. And in this case the Windows video driver would be auto installed.

Presumably Windows messed up with your OS X boot code. You have to rebuild this code. Since OS X tools can not handle a false flagged partition you have to set the correct partition flag and afterwards rebuild the boot code using OS X Disk Utility. Since you can't boot from the now unaccessible recovery partition you have to have Linux-tools and a second ...

Use this article to identify your machine and OS installed. Aside from two of the most recent Macbooks, Bootcamp v4 and v5 support software drivers are available. Download from there and run using the instructions supplied in the DL doc.

long story short. To create a boot disk on USB do this: open bootcamp app contents (finder, right-click on bootcamp app at applications folder) Copy info.plist file to another place (like desktop), rename the original to something like "OLDinfo.plist" to preserve a backup. Right-click that copied file and open it with textedit Search for a line containing ...

If you installing Windows 7/8/8.1 on MAC in EFI (native) mode - you'll get problem with sound. If you installing Windows in BootCamp mode - you'll get corrupted files on your hybrid MBR/GPT disc if you'll try to use same files on both systems. If you have only 1 system (Windows in bios mode or Mac OS in gpt) - no problem. So you have to decide.

If you hear the click sound when taking a screen shot the the shot has been taken and it is in your Clipboard. To get it, open any application (like paint or other) and use the "Paste command" to see it/modify and save as a file in a location of your choosing.

⇧ shift+fn+F11 is the correct keyboard shortcut to emulate a Print Screen in Windows, however this shortcut requires the Boot Camp drivers to be installed and be running in Windows. Make sure you have the drivers installed correctly and check whether the keyboard is configured to require fn in Boot Camp Control Panel.

The important Apple drivers which Windows invariably doesn't have updates for are Facetime camera, Apple keyboard/trackpad/mouse, and the IR receiver. Beyond these you can update any drivers that MS has to offer through Windows Update, and I've had no issues with downloading video drivers directly from nVidia. Always create a restore point so you can ...

To my knowledge there are no special drivers required for Boot Camp Windows. At least for the graphics adapter I did it myself on my Mac Pro without degradation, disruptions, blue screens or similar. As with installing any low-level software, it is advisable to create a backup beforehand, so that you can roll back, should something not work as planned.

Download a decent but free partition tool for Windows like MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition 9 and check for a HFS+ volume at the end of the disk. The size is ~650 MB and the GUID type: 426F6F74-0000-11AA-AA11-00306543ECA. If it doesn't exist anymore - after installing Windows - go ahead and encrypt the whole drive. If it exists, try to boot to ...

You can recreate the EFI System Partition (ESP) using the command-line tool gpt.

The USB stick cannot boot on Mac without Bootcamp. The Windows expects a BIOS, but Mac has EFI. That's why you cannot boot from that USB stick.

Instead of a default/classical Mac volume like your iMac, your MacBook Pro contains a CoreStorage volume. Booted to Windows, CoreStorage volumes cannot be mounted and consequently the contained files can't be read - until now. You would need to revert the CoreStorage volume wrapper that contains HFS+ back to a straight HFS+ volume to regain read-only ...

Do you mean you can't boot into Mac OS X anymore, or you can't see the OS X partition when you boot into Windows? If it's the latter, it's because the Macintosh file system is not readable by Microsoft Windows. You can go into Computer Management > Disk Management, it would show the partition, however it's not browsable by Windows. There is some third ...

As the source of that info is Apple themselves, you'd imagine that they're probably best placed to offer advice on the subject. This suggests that the 'fault' is not just Apple's, but requires Windows to be complicit. It would appear Windows 8 is capable, but requires the latest Apple hardware too.

To me USB stays USB. Type-C is just a physical form factor as Type-A and Type-B. So yes it will work.

Considering the just announced new MacBook isn't yet generally available there are very few people, if any, that can say they've actually connected a LaCie USB-C (USB 3.0) external drive to the just announced new MacBook and booted either OS X or Windows from the external drive. That said, I'd be very shocked if one was not able to boot any OS that supports ...

Windows 7 and previous has a limitation of being on a drive with no more than 4 partitions. When BootCamp partitions a Mac HD and adds the Windows (NTFS) partition that makes the fourth partition, so if you add more after that Windows will likely become unbootable. Your plan has a total of 6 partitions, two of them hidden (and rather small) a boot partition ...

This should be one way to regain your unused space. There might be a better (or more elegant) solution, but since i don't have a spare Mac at the moment (and it doesn't work in a virtual environment) i can't figure that out. The solution outlined here removes any partition which obstructs the expansion of the CoreStorage Volume Group. Then the physical ...

Firstly, I would think about how much you want to share between the two. What documents are you going to be messing with on both sides. If it's a significant amount you might want to consider a third partition for documents, and then setup a partition each for the OSs to boot from. Given the time spent in each you probably want full performance from each ...
