You are able to use "[computer name].local" domains all over your network. This also applies to Apple mobile devices and other hardware (I have: Mac Mini, Western Digital NAS, HP printer and Linux laptop -- it has its own Bonjour called Avahi). Please support adoption of the Zeroconf protocol and report bugs to Apple, because they give us an opportonity to ...

This is how to fix the bootcamp windows install error: "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration." Do not try to fix with a workaround - you'll find solutions of people manually selecting their Windows partition during reboot by holding down the OPTION key. This will work, but you are circumventing the way that apple wanted you to install ...

It sounds like you're running into the same issue I did, where after booting into Windows the VT-x shows as 'Disabled' in Task Manager. Not sure how or why, but after going into OS X System Preferences Target Disk Select the BOOTCAMP disk as the startup disk Everything was well after that and I could happily use Hyper-V, even from a cold boot. If ...

Yes, Apple provides a Software (including the drivers) to install Windows a Macs: Bootcamp Apple's EULA doesn't allow installing OS X on non Apple hardware. Although, some people have already done this (they call this Hackintosh) but it's tricky and you'll never have a fully functioning system (there are always bugs somewhere).

Fusion Drive is an OS X specific way of caching data. If you use Bootcamp on a Fusion Drive you will get Windows on the hard drive only. Some information from this Apple note

Hold down the Option key (⌥) when your Mac starts. That should take you to the startup selection screen. Hopefully it'll show you an icon for Windows and another icon for OSX. http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT1310 If it doesn't then you might need to install OSX from scratch. If your Mac is fairly recent you can do this from the Internet directly. ...

Have you tried holding down the option key when you reboot? You can also select the default boot disk from the bootcamp GUI in windows.

Currently, no, this isn't possible. There's no such thing as maximising a window in OS X — I therefore presume you are referring to a window which has been stretched to fill the entire screen (as much as possible — i.e. not behind the menu bar). Since there is no difference between a window which has been enlarged and a 'maximised' window, there's no ...

I know this is not the answer you want to hear, but unfortunately there is no way to disable the discrete GPU and use the integrated graphics, when using Bootcamp. This has been discussed (to death) on support forums and on the web generally. I have thought myself in the past, that it would be useful to be able to turn off the discrete GPU just to improve ...

Hold ⌥ on boot and select your OS X partition. This changes your boot partition once for that time you boot. If you want to change it permanently, boot to OS X, open System Preferences → Startup Disk and select your OS X partition, or boot to Windows, open the Boot Camp Control Panel and select the OS X partition as the boot partition. Then, you will need ...

The "goto fail" bug was part of a OS X library that checked that a valid SSL certificate also matched the host records it was exchanging traffic with. Since many applications use SSL first identify a web site securely and then encrypt the traffic, having the library in the core OS lets each program not have to do the work to validate a cert. By ...

I'd recommend WineBottler; I have about 30 apps and games that work great with Wine. A few pointers though: Check the Wine Application Database for various apps. This shows what version of Wine, what winetricks you need and what workarounds may be required. Disclaimer: I'm a super maintainer Check the official system requirements for the program/game. For ...

That sounds like the main difference between a US and a UK keyboard. On a UK keyboard the " is above the number 2, and on a US keyboard the @ is above the 2. Is the keyboard UK or US? And is the Mac set to have a UK or a US keyboard attached?

Videos recorded with iOS (your iPod 5) have the extension "MOV", but they are normal "MP4" (containing H.264 and AAC). Which means that you can change the extension to "MP4" and they will be playable on Windows. In this case (recorded on iOS and with the extension "MOV") it is not necessary to convert these files. Same for "M4V" and "M4H" (other extensions ...

use keyremap4macbook. It adds all these options and it's easy to add new mappings on your own - eg for media keys and so on. Also you can make the remaps device specific so a mac keyboard will work as usual.

I have used CrossOver, PlayOnMac, WineBottler & wine (directly from Terminal). All of these use wine, but I would strongly recommend CrossOver, even though it isn't free. If you don't feel like spending any money, I would recommend either PlayOnMac or WineBottler as they are pretty similar in functionality. Wineskin is also another alternative to look ...

This might seem like a long shot, but it was also the only option for me to install Windows into my Bootcamp partition a little while back. It's also the only option for a Mac that used to have an optical drive but no longer does, since for some reason these devices are no longer able to boot from USB. Use Disk Utility to create a FAT partition a little ...

I have similar problems with users on my network using Mavericks, where no such issue existed with Mountain Lion. Most users can live with it, and they simply re-mount the disk. Apparently, the SMB implementation on Mavericks is different than it was in prior OS releases. What I have found is that if I connect to drives using cifs://servername rather than ...

The slow-motion effect applied to the video in Photos.app is not actually applied to the video file. This means that the 120 fps video remains at 120 fps and is played at this higher fps in Windows. To slow down the video, use a video editor, either on Windows or on the iOS device (such as iMovie which is free on the 5s) to save the slowed video file.

Assuming you have access to the file from your Mac system, for example through a shared folder, you would run it locally (through Terminal) like this: perl /path/to/windows/shared/folder/scriptname.pl In AppleScript this would be something like: do shell script "/usr/bin/perl /path/to/windows/shared/folder/scriptname.pl However, this still executes the ...

Unfortunately, unless you are already a registered iTap user, it's no longer available as of October 8, 2013. Microsoft's latest free version (8.0.3) does not support TS Gateway services. I've been looking for something that does, but no luck so far. Anyone have a suggestion?

I have good news for you this time: this functionality is possible by setting up a Photo Stream on iCloud. The only downside to this method is that you will need to back up your Photo Stream every once in a while. Follow these set up instructions, and then use this troubleshooting guide and FAQ page if you have any follow-up questions. The set-up ...

There is no hardware virtualization to turn on or off like on Wintel PCs. That switch and many other BIOS switches are there because (at least in part) the hardware manufacturers don't make the hardware AND software, like Apple does. It is always on in any Mac that has a processor that supports virtualization. Pretty much any Mac in the last several years ...

It depends on what you mean by "use". You may access files on that drive from Windows/Linux, provided you have driver for HFS+ filesystem (Linux could have it already installed, at least in read mode, Windows driver must be downloaded separately). (i.e. the hardware is 100% compatible - and would run well if you reformatted the drive for Windows / NTFS). ...

Open the virtual machine's configuration file .vmx using a text editor.
