When you log-in, after bootcamp.exe start, you will hear a sound like bing and then the keyboard lights will turn on. Sometimes, Windows is updated and maybe make the lights doesn't work. If you don't see the lights, go to Task Manager, and look up bootcamp.exe. In case it's own CPU field > 0%, a sign is easily found by right click on Bootcamp icon on ...

If the remote (Windows) filesystem is mountable in the Finder than any application that does file level backups should work. I use SuperDuper and have used Carbon Copy Cloner and Chronosync in the past with good success. Note that CCC backs up to either a Mac filesystem or a DMG (disk image) file which may be problematic on a Windows PC with no Macs ...

These are the instructions for a Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 (64 bit) installation. Here, I assume the Boot Camp Support Software 4.0.4033 has been copied to a flash drive. The instructions were adapted from the originals given here. Determine the drive letter of your flash drive, by inserting the drive in a USB port on the Mac. Below is an ...

Alright, let's see what we can do here! 1) Suspending vs. Shutting Down in Parallels a) How it affects the host OS Both options do not affect the host operating system - in your case, OS X - from a resource usage standpoint. Rather, they only affect how the guest OS will boot next time - (i.e. waking up from sleep vs. a cold boot). When suspending, it ...

In my humble opinion, the easiest and a free solution for creating bootable drives is Rufus.

The easiest way is probably to use OS X internet recovery: Press cmd+alt+R at startup Open the disk utility from the opening menu Reformat the disk to HFS+ Journaled Close disk utility and go to install OS X This procedure will delete all your data and Windows completely.

Apple have released an update to iTunes that finally fixes this problem. iTunes 12.1.1 should solve any issues you're having (it did for me).

I am going to assume this was a temporary problem with Apple. The update recently installed without an issue and was very quick.

I personally feel that speed tests such as these are of theoretical interest but not of any value in the real world. After years of faffing around with windows and comparing to Mac after I saw the light, speed issues become a moot point: Work flow windows: switch on-> wait 20 minutes for latest update to install->spend a further 20 minutes repairing the ...

The problem you encountered occured before the Boot Camp drivers are installed. So, the drivers are not the problem. The correct drivers for Macs can be found at Boot Camp: System requirements for Microsoft Windows operating systems. In your case, the drivers can be downloaded from Boot Camp Support Software 4.0.4033. Also, the drivers can be downloaded ...

Don't wary about duplicates, it's just duplicates of index, not waste memory space. You could use Koit Photo Manager to view iPhone albums. If one photo appear in Photo Library and User Album. Delete the one in User Album not affect in Photo Library. Conversely, both will be disappear.

There is nothing that you do about this other than try to hide them. It occurs because one file system doesn't support extended attributes. There have been quite a few posts on the dropbox forum and I suggest you file a bug report with dropbox. They'll claim it is normal behavior but they still need to find a fix.

If you're simply wanting to dedicate your old HDD to Windows 7 duties you don't need to use Boot Camp to do it. Simply partition and format the HDD as FAT (Windows will insist on it being formatted as NTFS when installing), reboot your Mac while holding alt/option and insert your Windows install media. You will then be able to install Windows without further ...

Yes, Windows 10 works fine in Boot Camp, but the Boot Camp Support Software doesn't really launch correctly. In compatibility mode, it seems to work but I haven't extensively tested whether the settings actually make a difference. Technical Previews are generally 'buggy' too so problems may not solely be due to Boot Camp.

There's actually a program called Win32DiskImager, that can take the .dmg file and your flash drive and make it bootable. I just used it today and got OS X working on my desktop with Windows.

Many iTunes for Windows users had the same problem with the recent upgrade, myself included. To fix the problem (it worked for me), download and install the iTunes 12.1 for Windows that is supposed to be for older video cards. But don't let that last part fool you. I have a card less than 12 months old and this solution worked wonderfully. Here is the link ...

Update 2: I assume OS X is installed on partition 2 of disk 0. If you want me to check this, then post the output of the next three commands and I will verify. Otherwise proceed and attempt the resize. diskutil list sudo gpt -r -vvv show -l /dev/disk0 sudo fdisk /dev/disk0 To resize to a smaller size, you will have to boot using OS X Internet Recovery. ...

I tried with and without holding alt key down, from Mac OS to Windows and the other way. The Hyper-V installation begins and asks for a reboot, and during starting up of windows then 2nd step of the installation failed and rolled back. Today I bought thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter, plugged it, installed Hyper-V and after reboot I could use it. Even when I ...

If you are using "Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.1.1" and do not want to upgrade to "Microsoft Remote Desktop", then the following applies. This was tested using OS X 10.10.2 (Yosemite). The problem is on the Windows 8.1 machine. Make the following changes on the Windows machine. Enable RDP security layer in Group Policy on the ...

Actually, Boot Camp installs a Boot Camp Control Panel in the Windows Control Panel. The large icon appears as shown below. Also, Boot Camp installs a gray diamond icon in the Windows notification area (system tray). By clicking on this icon, a menu will appear, which allows you to easily switch back to OS X. Upon opening the Boot Camp Control ...

Apple say that certain monitors will interfere with wifi, as stated here. That wouldn't explain why it seems to only affect apple products! But does explain why lowering the wifi channel to 1 might help (it says to avoid 11-14). It also suggests moving to 5GHz instead of 2.5GHz may alleviate the problem. Somebody else suggests that if you use a genuine ...

Usually the person asking the question does not give enough information for a answer to be generated. So, I will try anyway. Does, the PC have a working bootable DVD drive? If so, just use the OS X Disk Utility application to burn the iso to a DVD. If your PC can boot from a flash drive, then you have two options. First, use some machine running windows to ...

Windows does actually require equivalent permissions fixes, it's just that there is no built-in tool to do it all automatically. Analogous processes such as sfc /scannow etc or any of the suite of tools from tweaking.com provide easier user access to those underlying system tools.

Only because OS X offers a convenient way to repair permissions shouldn't be taken as an indicator that other operating systems don't need similar functionality as well. At least in the Linux world it depends on the distribution whether something similar is available and how it is run (e.g. periodically via cron). As for the "why is this required in the ...

The typical place for this kind of information is one of /System/Library (for OS specific stuff) /Library (for system-wide preferences/settings valid for all users) ~/Library (for user-specific preferences/settings) and the folders beneath them (e.g. Application Support and Preferences). They are saved as individual files, usually named so you can ...
