I have an 27' Imac 2011, which according to Apple is not supported for Windows 10 install. I just walked through the steps of Bootcamp 6.0.1, downloaded the Bootcamp support files, created the Windows partition in Bootcamp, inserted a DVD of the W10 x64 ISO that I downloaded from MS and followed the procedures. The only problem I encountered (eventhough I ...

You have not begun to given enough information to correctly diagnose your problem. This answer this therefore is based on many assumptions. I know Windows 10 can be installed using the EFI boot method on the newer Mac computers. I do not know if this includes your model. Although, if your Mac does support booting Windows via EFI, then, I believe you should ...

The recommended method to expand Macintosh HD is to backup and remove your Windows partition with WinClone, expanding your OS X volume and restoring the Windows partition. This can also be done with dd and fdisk. Both methods require an external drive. A very non-conventional method exists to expand Macintosh HD by using the internal Logical Volume ...

The 200 GB of your hard drive spaces were partially formatted with NTFS and went unrecognized due to a failed installation. There are couple of options which may work out.

From a little research I was not able to find anything that actually described getting the full 5K out of the iMac if you're on Windows. From a dated Mashable article: From what I can gather, that's because AMD hasn't updated its driver for the graphics card inside the iMac to support 5K. So at the time of this writing, the maximum resolution the ...

Ok, after spending the afternoon looking how to solve this, I found that the easy way was to create a new partition from Windows' side in exFat format. And since the format exFat is modifiable on Mac, unlike NTFS, I can then erase it and then change the format to whichever I want.

These are the things I did in order: Install reFind... doing this added the missing EFI partition that was mentioned I was missing in the comments for this question. Use the reFind partition editor to fix ...

You can install Windows XP along with OS X El Capitan using a swap disk trick. You will need to have both a Windows XP cd-rom and Windows 7/8/10 DVD, and a USB drive. You will also need the original Mac OS X DVD that came with your Mac Mini to install the Windows XP drivers. If you don't have the Mac OS X disc that came with your Mac Mini, you can download ...

In other words, the commands would be as shown below. diskutil erasevolume "Free Space" "" /dev/disk0s7 diskutil erasevolume "Free Space" "" /dev/disk0s6 diskutil erasevolume "...

This allows you to boot either Mac or Windows via holding option at boot up and selecting the disk. More specifically, Bootcamp is a partition type created to allow the major differences in disk formats between the two OS to cooperate on a ...
