I found my answer here. The culprit is Windows Fast Startup, that actually hibernates the file structure when turning off, and restores it when re-booting in. Thus any changes happened between these two steps can't be really percieved by Windows. From what I read, it could even bring to data loss (if only it had write permissions towards my HFS+). So, ...

My experience with Windows 8.1 and Yosemite is the HFS+ drivers installed in Windows do not work very well. In defense of Apple, I have a 2007 iMac and Windows 8.1 is not approved for my model. I assume you are not using Core Storage. If so, you could try the free drivers from Paragon. See link HFS+ for Windows® 8/8.1 Free Edition Note: You can test for ...

How to install Windows without using the BootCamp Assistant. Download and copy the Boot Camp Support Software to a flash drive. You will need this later. You need to create a "MS-DOS (FAT)" formatted partition. One way would be during a clean install. Use the Disk Utility to create a two partitions. The first would be "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" for ...

After reading through several stackexchange answers, I found steps that worked on this site. He walks you through how to format the USB stick so that Windows will recognize it, and how to use Unetbootin to copy the ISO image. I'll reproduce the steps here for convenience: Format the disk in Disk Utility, with the correct MBR Open Disk Utilty Select the ...

You'll need a third party utility that can repartition a live drive. The Apple software will not make additional partitions beyond the Bootcamp one. Or, the hard-but-effective way is to back everything up, wipe and repartition, then copy back. Winclone is a good program for backing up Boot Camp partitions. Personally, this issue was worth it to me to buy ...

Winclone is the OS X software to backup and restore the Windows OS on a BootCamp partition. http://twocanoes.com/winclone/ It lets you escape Apple's restriction to only have two OS partitions on a drive. You still might have to delete bootcamp, but you can then restore it in working form after you've re-done the boot drive partitioning to your liking. ...

While VirtualBox is capable of Raw Disk Access it is not designed to use the Windows Boot Camp partition as a virtual machine. In other words it does not handle the Windows Product Activation between running it physically and virtually. VMware Fusion, a paid product, is capable of seamlessly handing using the Windows Boot Camp partition as a virtual ...

The answer is No. Sorry. I have done this already. Here is the problem. VirtualBox and your Apple use different hardware. If you try to switch between the hardware you are going to drive windows insane. If you first install Windows using VirtualBox's virtual hardware and a physical disk partition, then switch to Apple's physical hardware with the same ...

Looks like it's always been this broken, maybe I just never hit it because I haven't used multi-monitor macs before and so rarely had windows side-by-side: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2436615 Enable click-through, preferrably for all applications :-(

Download BootChamp. You get a shortcut that reboots into Windows, but it doesn't change the default OS. Seems to work really well.

The Apple Bootcamp drivers for Windows aren't great when you have one finger dragging enabled. I had this problem, switching it off fixed it. Right click Bootcamp tray icon and choose "Bootcamp Control Panel". Click the "Trackpad" tab. Uncheck "Dragging".

I've seen exactly the same problem, and solved it with iDefrag, the partitioning tool needs contiguous space, not just space. The only other option is to wipe the drive. There are other defrag tools but they're not as good. I think iDefrag is the best available option (assuming you're using a standard HDD, don't defrag solid state drives)

You could try this method to make a bootable disk. Make sure to backup the USB and format as FAT32. Creating a bootable USB manually: First unplug USB and run: diskutil list Take note of the output. Then plug in your usb and run diskutil list again. You will see that there is one more disk. Of you have only your HD and the usb, it should be /dev/disk1 ...

In this specific instance, there was no way for me to solve this issue without going through the process all over again from the beginning. I went back into OS X and removed the Windows partition from my system. I reinstalled the Bootcamp partition and the ISO file onto the USB following these instructions: ...

Tuxera is an app that makes NTFS filesystems fully readable & writable. There is a 15-Day trial for it.

Press Command+Alt+G and type /Volumes/ and there search for ...

On windows create second partition formatted as ExFAT. Move data you need to second partition. Then run OS X Recovery Partition. Format first partition, install OS X. Then move data from second partition to first and delete second partition.

There is no way to reinstall OS X without formatting and losing data. If you want to keep your data, recover the data to another drive or to the cloud.

Nearly any Windows app can be made to run on Mac hardware, running OS X, even graphically intensive games, albeit with a loss in performance (to some degree or other), just by wrapping the application in a Wineskin... Now I had heard about this over a couple of years, but, after my experience of using Wine on Linux in the early 2000's, I was always put off ...

The shortcuts are different for the OSs. You'll have to learn them, individually. Only third-party apps, and basic shortcuts like cut, copy, paste are similar. If you have a Win keyboard then the Win key is equal to Cmd (⌘) key, and rest are the same. Generally Win key is replaced with Cmd key in shortcuts. The task manager is called Activity Monitor in ...

On a Mac, the equivalent to Task Manager is the Activity Monitor. From the Dock, click the Launchpad icon, then search for and click Activity Monitor. Alternatively, assuming that the Windows key behaves like the [Cmd] key, you can use [Cmd+Space], then type Activity Monitor. However, for applications that need to be force closed, right-click that ...

Use Disk utilities to setup the 2nd partition then run Bootup tool rEFIt (used it before to access Ubuntu, Windows and OS X installed as well on my macbook pro). Run Windows setup when you bootup on the created partition. Download a previous set of drivers (latest ones I guess) and don't forget to back your drive. You can get previous drivers to install ...

The answer is it was never worked that way. If you want it to work that way, you have to install a boot manager. The most common free one is call rEFInd. Most people install this software in the OS X partition, but this can lead to problems when you install updates. I installed rEFInd in its own partition to avoid such problems. I would go with @ryebread's ...

Firstly, if you hold down the Option key just after the boot chime, you can get to a "boot menu" where you can select the drive that you want to boot from.

I think you can open your VM in Parallels. Parallels has a feature that lets you boot your VM in Bootcamp. I have not done this myself; you'll have to do further research to verify.

The Escape key unmaximizes Excel. Another way is to push the mouse cursor to the top edge of the screen. The menu bar would appear. A blue unmaximize button will appear in the top right corner. Finally, you can use Control-Command-F. That should work with all programs, not just Excel.
