The solution for fixing Boot Camp Assistant was the same as with previous versions of the OS: reset the NVRAM. I found a discussion mentioning a similar problem with an upgrade to Yosemite here that I intiially disregarded as it referenced repairing permissions and running a Disk Verify, neither of which Disk Utility appears to support anymore. As for ...

What is the capacity of your flash drive ? More than 8GB ? If yes then NTFS will do. If you want to use your flash drive on Windows, only FAT32 or NTFS will be nice. If you haven't download yet, there is a lot of software that allow OS X to write into NTFS partitions. Like TUXERA NTFS or Paragon NTFS.

exFAT is the only format which will work for you as it will allow files greater than 4GB and work on Windows. Disk Utility can format using exFAT.

The problem is not that you don't have an MBR. The problem is that an MBR can only have 4 partition entries. On an out-of-the-box fresh install of OS X, you'd be using 3 of those partition entries already; one for the EFI partition, one for the Mac HFS partition, and one for the recovery partition. That leaves only one MBR slot available for the Boot Camp ...

Author of the question answering: It's not necessarily a disk failure since I installed my SSD into a friend's Macbook Pro (same model: retina 15" late 2013, 2.3Ghz) and it works properly. I also tried to insert his SSD into my Macbook Pro and it is not recognized. I don't know where it comes from though...

FIX WITH ACCESS TO SHARED PARTITION To get Windows to boot, you can try entering the following in gdisk from OS X. Before entering the command, you will have to disable System Integrity Protection (SIP). If Windows boots, you will be able to access the new shared partition from Windows. If Windows does not boot, follow the instructions in the section titled ...

I had to manually uninstall iTunes and manually re-install it from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/. That page says the current version is 12.3.3. So even though I had the check box that says to automatically update and even though I manually checked for an update, it was not up to date.

I got it to work by using gptsync (downloaded from here). When I booted into recovery mode, I could open the terminal and run ./gptsync /dev/disk0. This created a hybrid MBR/GPT and allowed me to install Windows.

Try this : Open iTunes From the Store menu, select "View my Account..." Sign in with your Apple ID and password. Under "Computer Authorizations" select "Deauthorize All".

I found out that iTunes will update BPM information from the file. Create a playlist in iTunes of a few songs that do not have BPM Information Use any software that evaluates BPM information and writes it to the song file (I used Virtual DJ). In iTunes go to your playlist, click to select the first song, and simply press and hold the DOWN arrow.

With respect to Microsoft Windows, 2012, through 2014 were translational years for Apple Macs. For the 2011 and older Macs, Windows is installed in BIOS/MBR mode using a Windows installer DVD. In 2012, Apple started to drop the optical drive from its Mac models. To allow Windows to be installed, the Boot Camp Assistant application copied the files from the ...

Your question has two parts. The first part is repeated below. The question is, how can I make the EFI Boot disappear when I press the options key at startup? This a duplicate of the question "Ghost partition, Windows BSOD". The rest of your question, which again is repeated below, does require further explanation. It's not creating any problems ...

VTT subtitles are a feature of HTML5 which is why it is working in Chrome. iTunes doesn't support them. You will need to 3rd party utility to embed the subtitle as an additional track in the MP4 container. Normally I would recommend Subler for this but I don't believe it supports VTT subtitles yet. However, if you can convert the VTT file into SRT ...

Moved bootloader (EFI folder) to EFI partition and everything started to work properly

Yes. Quit iTunes. Move the iTunes folder to the desired location. Then, make a symbolic link to the moved iTunes folder, drag that symbolic link to the Music folder, rename the link to be exactly "iTunes" and you are done. An alias won't work. It has to be a Symbolic Link. I made my symbolic link using an Automator Service. Automator is not set up to make ...

Echoing the "backup" to have the original disks available if you ever want to return to an old MacOSX, the only warnings I'll give is that you'll be having fun with EFI using Linux, so you might need to investigate the versions that supports that (and the UEFI support should be sufficient). If you choose the Windows 7 route, the better advice will be to ...

As far as I know you CAN use BOOT CAMP to create a USB stick with the neccessary drivers from a Windows ISO without having to partition or format your HDD ... at least with Booot Camp 6 it should also have a EFI boot on the USB stick. So simply use Boot Camp for creating a USB installation medium and then BOOT FROM IT WITHOUT USING BOOT CAMP TO PARTITION ...

Change your network setting in parallels to be bridge mode and you should be set. http://kb.parallels.com/en/4948 The IIS and Windows will get their own IP address so you can connect as if the PC was a physical one connected directly to the network. The Mac won't see the traffic to the server process.

You could maybe try to disable System Integrity Protection that came with El Captain. If you want to do so (at your own risk) see Disable System Integrity Protection (rootless). It's actually what they say on the link you've given : I believe this is from changes related to the new “rootless” or System Integrity Protection feature of El Capitan (more ...

None of the other methods worked for me, especially since my Windows 10 was Bitlocker encrypted i.e. it doesn't show up in Startup Disks to chose to reboot to.

Your Mac Pro (MacPro4,1) officially neither supports Windows 10 nor booting from USB thumb drives. The only Mac Pro model supporting Windows 10 installed with Boot Camp Assistant according to Apple is the Mac Pro (Late 2013).

Of course, installing an antivirus on your Windows is recommended, but it is not a necessity. Generally, if there was a virus, your mac would not be damaged, as the OS X file format is read only on Windows AFAIK (unless the virus was so well made, that it bypassed this). or is all virus protection handled by the Mac? There is no way for that to happen ...

Windows and Mac actually different OS run, so Mac can't handle all service on Windows. Virus can run in Windows systems in virtual or native install. So you need install Antivirus on Windows systems. Hopefully that's answer your questions.

I know this question is old but it is still valid. I was never able to write a Mac installer image to my Flash Drive and have it bootable, unless I did it on a Mac. Using Michael D. M. Dryden's Link, I was able to use the Diskpart command to clean and prep a GPT partition on a flash drive for an OSX Mavericks install image. I used TransMac on Windows 7 to ...

You have not actually installed Windows. Your image shows the BOOTCAMP partition is MS-DOS (FAT) formatted. If Windows installed, the partition would be NTFS formatted. At some point during the installation, did you tell Windows to format the BOOTCAMP partition? See step 4 here and "Format the Windows partition" step here. If you skip this step, you will ...

Installing Apps There are several ways to install applications on OS X. The App Store: Another way to install applications is from the App Store. Apps from the App Store are first downloaded as a .dmg to a system directory, and then installed to the /Applications/ directory. Apps downloaded from the App Store are sandboxed, which means that they can only ...

If the file ends in .app drag it into the applications folder. If the file ends .pkg double click it to run the intaller.

I was prepared to follow the instructions above, but noticed Boot Camp clearly said "Install Windows 7 or later version". So I tried it and everything worked perfectly. I installed Windows 10.1 on a mid 2011 iMac running El Capitan, using Boot Camp. The only setback was having to burn the Windows ISO to a DVD because it wouldn't let me install from a USB. ...
