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

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?

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. ...

If your Mac OS partition is encrypted with FileVault 2, it will be unreadable when you are booted to Windows. At that point, the only thing malware could do to this partition would be to wipe or delete it.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

According to the license for OS X, you are not allowed to run it on non-Apple hardware. If any emulators do exist, or methods to hack existing virtualization software to run it on non-Apple hardware, that would not be legal. Legally, you could technically buy some Apple hardware like an iMac or Mac Pro, install Windows on it, and then run virtualized OS X ...

If you're using Time Machine on the disk, the disk is Mac OS Extended formatted which can't be read by Windows without additional software. You can use the Boot Camp drivers which integrates HFS read/write into Explorer. http://support.apple.com/kb/DL830 Alternatively, you can use HFSExplorer: HFSExplorer is an application that can read ...

There is a major difference in using IIS Express and the 'regular' IIS. The latter as installed by default in Windows. In short, IIS Express runs sandboxed on its host environment. This means by default it cannot be accessed outside. Luckily, you're not the only one asking this as it has been adressed on StackOverflow several times. In my opinion, with this ...

According to the first answer here, http://superuser.com/questions/383235/create-a-bootable-usb-drive-from-a-dmg-file-on-windows, there's a tool with a free trial called TransMac that can do it. Just make sure the USB drive is formatted with GPT and not MBR. What might be easier, however, is that that model has support for Internet Recovery. If you boot ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Reinstall Windows again using BootCamp, then remove it properly using BootCamp Assistant. It takes time, but solves the problem. Dummy Windows entries are gone forever.

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 seems from here that the iCloud website does not support importing vCards marked as version 2.1. By changing the second line to VERSION:3.0 I was able to import the vCards. This is a bit of a pain, but if you can export all of your contacts from Outlook in a singe vCard file then it should be ok (I am not sure if Outlook supports this). Alternatively ...

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?
