Mount the volume you want to convert into a bootable installer. This could be removable media such as a USB flash drive, or a secondary internal partition. You can then use the createinstallmedia tool to ...

I think the problem is that the keyboard draws so little current that it won´t wake the port if you have the Apple keyboard with a usb hub. Just stick a usb memorystick in the keyboard and re-insert the cable. If it works then just remove the memorystick or what ever you put in (doesn´t matter what).

Apparently it was a failure of the key, I asked Lacie and they sent me another one. So if you come across the same issue contact Lacie.

Try  menu > About this Mac > System Report... Select USB on the left, then find your device in the list. The reported speed ought to be a giveaway. Mine shows it's only running at USB2 speeds [but that's because I don't have a USB3 machine]

What is the docking station? Without knowing, as a guess, I'd say yes, you will have to get video via the mini-DP. USB and Firewire and such are not really designed to carry video signals, and while some USB docks do video, the laptop needs to support this properly - something that my MBP does not do at all. I get the convenience, but the mini-DP is the ...

Installing Windows on a Mac via Boot Camp you only have two choices, DVD or USB. You also need a Windows DVD (Full Install Media not Upgrade Media) or an ISO Image of the Windows DVD to create the USB Installer via the Boot Camp Assistant. Yes, you'll be able to use the USB drive to store other files after the Boot Camp Assistant has written the files ...

The answer is you can not period. Your Mac's firmware does not support booting any windows installer from a USB port. I assume your Mac does not have a working DVD (optical) drive. If it did, using a DVD would be the recommend way to install Windows on your model Mac.

I attach answer here as you guys suggested. SOLVED - Bootcamp Windows 7 installation without USB, ODD OK, I'll explain how I worked it. I followed almost of all of David's method here and here, but there are little differences.

You almost certainly need the geniune Apple USB Ethernet adapter, because it's probably the only USB Ethernet adapter that iOS has drivers for. Even if you find another adapter that uses the same chipset, Apple's drivers probably won't load unless the dongle identifies itself as an Apple product.

Try resetting the PRAM settings. First, restart your Mac, and before you hear the "bing" sound press option key (alt) + command + r + p, it will restart your Mac, after you hear the sound twice just plug in your USB stick and press the option button and boot from there. It worked for me. Hope this helped you out.

OS X has a bit of mouse input lag and acceleration. You can fix this by installing SmoothMouse. It works great for me in CS:GO. You can enable and disable it separately for the mouse and trackpad from the preference pane.

Why so complicated? Just start Windows 8.1 and then update via web or when notified for the free copy download, to Windows 10. Forget and ignore the Boot Camp compatibility. I have updated a MacBook Pro, Late 2008 or maybe Early 2009, without any problems from Windows 8.1 to 10. By the way I also updated my Mac Pro, Early 2008, to Windows 10. This ...
