One question posted at Ask Different deals with running Windows from a external drive. While the questions deals with Windows 10, the answer seems to indicate a BIOS boot method is used. Therefore, the answer might be adapted to work with Windows 7. Below is a link to this question. Is it possible to use Boot Camp with Windows 10 from an external HDD? In ...

This is basically Alex Lambert's answer from above with a a few updates. You don't need the Automated Installation Kit, you can use commands which are in the ISO. And the install.wim file is no longer included in the ISO so I've added the steps to convert the install.esd into install.wim. Here are my updates to his post above: You don't need AIK so delete ...

Well, it's not exactly a solution, more of a workaround, but Google Docs now read .pages files and will in many instances be able to show the contents. It depends on what version and how complex the .pages documents are. The current version of Pages will be able to open Pages '09 files if you have a Mac owning friend. Thirdly, if you rename the file ...

Problem 1) Use RealVNC client. In my experience, alt (Option) is in the Windows Key and Command is in the alt. Check out the documentation here https://www.realvnc.com/docs/mac-keyboard-mapping.html There is no fix for the alt (Option) key on TightVNC. I tried to use software on the Mac to remap / change the keys functionality such as Karabiner (previously ...

It is very simple. If you have Parallels or VMWare simply get hold of two free Windows Utilities, miniTools (to format and set up the external drive) and WintoUSB. Put the ISO of Windows 10 or 8.1 into the VM as you will need this when installing with WintoUSB. I've done this about 30 times already, and never had a problem. Using miniTools is the ...

Reflector 2 allows you to AirPlay audio and video from iOS to Windows. It claims to support iOS 9 now also (note I personally haven't tested the iOS 9 support yet). Reflector installs an app that acts as an AirPlay and Google Cast receiver. The app is available for Windows, Mac, Android, or Amazon Fire. Since Reflector supports receiving both AirPlay and ...

Ah. It's a little archaic but if you can get a hold of a burnable DVD just download a copy of Windows 10 from here http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/techbench and burn it to disc http://www.osxdaily.com/2015/11/22/burn-disc-images-os-x-finder . Once complete Make sure it's in your DVD drive then power off the Mac. Power on again and ...

Sounds like you're missing the Boot Camp software needed for your Mac or it didn't install the audio driver properly. Try downloading and running Tim Sutton's excellent Brigadier while in Windows. It should download the latest compatible boot camp software for your model Mac. Once downloaded run the Boot Camp setup file from /Users/(your username)/BootCamp-*...

Easiest answer should be to power on your Mac, hold down the Option Key and let the Startup Manager populate itself with your bootable volumes. Highlight the Windows volume and hold the Control Key down, you should note the icon changes to an arrow going around in a circle, while still holding Control down press Enter. Congratulations, you have now set the ...

I ended up going in to Windows Update and it showed Windows 10 as the main update option with a 'Get Started' button. Clicked that and it all worked just fine. No need to fiddle around any more trying to please the 'Get Windows 10' icon.

Try updating the bluetooth driver using the one found here: http://support.lenovo.com/au/en/downloads/ds031759 It should have the supported Windows 10 driver for the Bluetooth chipset found in that model (BCM20702). Once completed, try the upgrade again.

Seem like you have to install Windows 10 manually with iso file and bootcamp, then install the driver.

You should not of had to install the drivers manually. If you right click on setup.exe from the "Boot Camp Support Software", you should be able to select compatibility mode. You say you formatted the drive. It would help if you explained what utility you used to do this. My concern is for how Windows determines the drive partitioning. For your model/year ...

If you can access recovery mode by holding down Command + R when you boot into your machine, you should be able to press the apple icon in to top left hand corner of the screen and select start up disk and then choose your startup disk. Hope this helps :)

You can sync all your photos to iCloud and then search icloud.com on your Windows to download. Or you can try a 3rd-party app, AirMore, to transfer photos from iPhone to Windows 10. Install it on your iPhone and scan QR code on AirMore Web on your PC. Tap "Pictures" on your computer to find photos you need, and click "Download". Hope both ways could ...

I managed to achieve this without using bootcamp, I just installed the operating systems from a disk, then was able to chose what OS I wanted to boot into. with the option key held down at start up.

The short answer is yes. Starting with the 2015 Mac models, you can not use the "hybrid MBR" mode. You must use GPT partition scheme for all operating systems installed. Installation is fairly straight forward. When installing Ubuntu, I would advise that you create a second EFI partition. This would allow you to use the Startup Manager to select the current ...

You can "import" a TV show episode from the Windows system to your Mac, set the release date on the Mac and then copy it back to the Windows system. Not exactly a viable workaround for most but if you happen to have both platforms it may work until Apple gets their act together and starts to test their software before releasing it to their customers. Quoted ...

Yes the Kinect will work if you use your Mac with Bootcamp, though unless you're scanning at night I wouldn't recommend using the Kinect for outdoor work- infrared light (sunlight) can interfere with the scan quality.

Solved - the answer is that Windows was in a hibernate state. I was able to take Windows out of this state and now BOOTCAMP appears. I will accept my own answer when I am allowed to. More details of solution below. I downloaded a trial of Paragon Disk Manager which showed the BOOTCAMP partition and provided an option to mount it. On attempting to mount, a ...

Solution: Mac > Sys Prefs > Sharing > File Sharing > Shared Folders: select Users > Everyone: changed from 'read' to 'Read & Write' fixes it. BUT, the best solution is this: Leave 'Everyone' as 'Read only' or remove 'Everyone'. Press [+] box and add Mac account that is same name as my current Windows account, and set it to read & write. What ...

Not completely the answer as this fix works with Boot Camp. But it fixes the problem: I cannot seem to get past this step. What I did: remove the extra (non-OS X/Windows/Linux -> 4,5,6,7) partitions and merge them into the main Apple OS partition(2).(using diskutil) Start Boot Camp Assistant and it will not give the error you got and continue (telling you ...

I followed this guide: http://danielphil.github.io/windows/virtualbox/osx/2015/08/25/virtualbox-boot-camp.html I did not follow the instructions to disable SIP, and kept EFI mode on. It worked fine.

I believe the Mac program with the best chance of working with that accessory would be GamePad Companion. I can't say for sure if it would work with that device, because it is not on the compatibility list, but GamePad Companion probably works with a wider variety of controllers than any other Mac program, and it has the ability to map gamepads to various ...

As you stated, you can hold down the option key at startup to invoke the Startup Manager. If you hold down the control key while selecting one of the displayed partitions, then chosen partition will become the new default startup partition.
