you still need to install a legal copy of windows so bootcamp can run windows. That is why the disk request. once windows is installed, bootcamp will run no problem.

From the details you provided. It sounds as if the kernel panic is due to to an issue in the firmware of your device. There are two things you can do: (before doing any of the solutions, always have a backup of your files, especially the important ones) Use the App Store to see if there is an update for your firmware. Just and fyi, you should update your ...

Warning: before trying my solution, ensure you have a complete backup of your hard drive (usually Macintosh HD) Before trying the method below, try the following: Open Disk Utility (booting to Recovery Mode by holding cmdR while starting your Mac, select Disk Utility in the OS X Utilities menu) Select your main volume (usually Macintosh HD) Select First ...

If you end up with option 3. Screw extractors, then your 'cheap choice' to put it back together is just make a saw cut in the top of the screw [remains] & treat it as a standard flat-blade screw-head from then on in. I presume you have one of those, but didn't procure the necessary Torx before starting out ;-) Don't try saw-cutting it first... you ...

I finally fixed it today. It turns out the Magsafe DC-in board can be replaced. It's a little $25 part ($15 refurbished). I followed the instructions on iFixit.com; you have to take apart practically the whole laptop which includes a lot of tiny, tiny connectors, but it's doable with just a few screwdrivers and a spudger I made from a chopstick.

Yes, this worked for my MacBook Pro which is the Late 2013 model. You need to go to the DisplayLink website and download the driver for your Mac, the driver is called "DisplayLink USB Graphics Software for Mac OS X." Then reboot your Mac and then plug in the Dell D3100.

As it turns out, to solve the problem you have to configure a search domain and add it to the search domain field under System Preferences dns configuration. Basically, the search domain will work sort of the way that .local does, but instead it will be . You have to set up your search domain as a master zone in your dns server for this to work.

I know I am late to this question, but I own the "MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013)" with "Intel Iris 1536 MB". I am currently using the macbook with the "Samsung SMS27A850" according to the system preferences it is currently running at 2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz using the DisplayPort/Thunderbolt connection (not HDMI).

If you noticed a sudden slowdown then that points to an event of some sort that is likely pointed to an issue with the HDD (IMHO). Mac OS is very sensitive to issues with the speed of the disk, which is why it benefits so much from upgrading to an SSD. My recommendations? Back up your vital data now. Boot the system into recovery mode, run disk utility to ...

It looks like you have a 2010 MacBook Pro, (MacBookPro6,2). These were known to have a bad NVIDIA graphics chip. Apple was replacing the motherboards for free but I believe the free repairs have ended. If you didn't have your MBP repaired as part of that program then it looks like your graphics chip is causing the problem. If you still have AppleCare ...

I found the answer after pulling my hair for a few days... I actually had to tick the "Displays have separate Spaces" option in System Preferences => Mission Control Does this setting depend on the monitor that is plugged in? I would suppose the answer is yes, otherwise it would not work with my home monitor... To be tested and confirmed!

Your WiFi adapter has failed. I am basing this answer off your statement in the question that it was working 2 days prior, but is no longer working now.

Apple doesn't do upgrades or upgrade exchanges. OWC is the only option AFAIK. They have a good reputation and you can review the install video to see if you are comfortable with it. If you don't buy the kit, you should at least order the Torx T5 and Pentalobe T5 screwdrivers needed to do the upgrade. Make sure to double-check the model number as explained ...

Yes, but I've heard Apple uses proprietary firmware on their SSDs (I could be wrong), however OWC does make SSDs specifically for the 2015 Retina MacBook Pro, so it appears they've figured out how to make replacements. Here's the link. I'm not affiliated with them, but have bought RAM and a replacement Mac battery from them, both of which work great.

When you wake a Mac from hibernation, RAM got written to disk and power removed from memory. Then, at wake, it gets read back into RAM. This takes longer than normal, or standby sleep (depending on the delay set) and is visible at wake time by showing an Apple symbol and progress bar underneath (white time markers filling up). Also running the following ...

Unfortunately, there is no direct way to force OS X to use battery-power mode (here, here and here). OS X uses Intel Speedstep which changes the P-state of the processor depending on the computer's power status (AC/battery). AFAIK, the only thing you can do is set your AC mode power management settings to the same as battery mode. Using pmset, you can see ...

If the SMC reset did not work it seems likely it could be a hardware problem. I would guess it's going into a fail safe mode causing the fans to always run full speed. This could happen if a temperature sensor malfunctioned , I would recommend taking the system into an Apple Authorized Service provider.

I know this is an old post, but I stumbled on it and thought I would put in my two cents. I own 4 Yamakasi 301 Sparta monitors. Very similar to the one in the question.

I thought of a solution by entering the command: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 25; pmset sleepnow; sleep 60; sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3 This sends the laptop straight to standby and restores the old settings on wake. The sleep is there to make sure the system doesn't set the old settings before standy is fully enabled. Maybe you could do with less then 60 ...

Unfortunately, the magnet damaged the data on internal hard disk, which is located near the trackpad inside your MacBook Pro. Data on standard Hard Disks is stored on the disk using patterns of magnetization. You will have to erase and restore from a backup if you have one.

Go with a Dual Boot; OS X and FreeBSD I personally did this on an XServe G4 (PowerPC), which was more difficult than the Intel based Macs; so your mileage will be better.

You may try to set standby delay manually: sudo pmset hibernatemode 3 standbydelay 900 This will setup your system to turn hibernation on, copy RAM to SSD, but NOT to turn power off (this is hibernatemode 3) AFTER 15 minutes (900 seconds). Or set any desired standby delay time. Alternatively, you may use hibernatemode 25, which will turn hibernation on, ...

Standby is effectively hibernate mode, one of the several versions of sleep. It's actually possible to set the sleep mode, then call pmset sleepnow.

I think it has to do with the timing. Did you connect your Thunderbolt cable before or after your iMac reached the login screen?

So when sound is not working, my simple solution is: CmdF2 out of target ...

Keeping your Mac plugged in 24/7 is dangerous and will shorten the life of your battery exponentially. From imploding to starting a fire, you should only plug it in when needed.

No, not at all. I leave my MacBook Pro connected to the charger for days on end sometimes and the battery still works fine.
