I had a similar problem: The "Thunderbolt display firmware update 1.2" kept reappearing in AppStore, even though the uppdate seemed successful. According to Apple the update was successful when the the Firmware Version is 26.2 and the Port Micro Firmware Version is 2.0.7 (visible in About this Mac -> SystemReport). Above versions were correct in my case, ...

This works for me: https://www.i-tech.com.au/products/146188_Wavlink_WL_UG35D6_USB_3_0_to_DVI.aspx Note: in my experience, the more additional USB devices you have plugged in, the more likely your 3rd monitor is likely to not work (flicks on and off) due to, I assume, lack of power.

You mention "unlocking" the drive which would suggest your brother is using filevault (the drive is encrypted). If the drive/file system is indeed damaged, I find it unlikely you will be able to recover data.

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.

I have been battling the same issue of my USB ports no working when I disconnect from my external monitor and keyboard. I was able to reset my USB ports by resetting the SMC following the steps on the site below. The USB drive needed to be plugged in when resetting, in my case a USB keyboard. I took a couple tries but worked on the second attempt. ...
