I had experienced the same problem after resetting my Macbook Air and then attempting to re-install W7 in Bootcamp. The default bootcamp assistant download returns an error message, so I had to download an older version which did boot the W7 desktop, but without drivers for sound and wifi. I did however have USB functionality, from this I was able to insert ...

Found a tedious solution on the Internet: Add all downloaded episodes to the new iTunes by copying the iTunes library and then select from the File menu "Add files to library". Go into each podcast's folder and select all files to add them to iTunes. Then iTunes will create the podcast with all these episodes, but you then have to subscribe to it again using ...

The install likely damaged the boot partition, making the Mac think there are no operating systems at all. It is likely/possible that your Mac partition is OK. Can you boot with COMMAND-R (recovery mode) and reinstall Mac OS? That should fix the boot partition and get you back up and running. Doing so should not cause you to lose any data as long as you ...

You will likely have to install Windows 10 without the benefit of the BootCamp installer. Which means that you will have to create a bootable Windows 10 USB installer. If I recall correctly Microsoft will allow you to do exactly that with a Windows 10 download. Once that is created you should be able to boot the Mac from the Windows 10 installer and install ...

Why so complicated? Just start Windows 8.1 and then update via web or when notified for the free copy download, to Windows 10. Forget and ignore the Boot Camp compatibility. I have updated a MacBook Pro, Late 2008 or maybe Early 2009, without any problems from Windows 8.1 to 10. By the way I also updated my Mac Pro, Early 2008, to Windows 10. This ...

You cannot boot windows off a USB flash drive. You need a special type of flash drive then windows ultimate which comes with a USB bootable creation tool and a specialized USBkey. There are other methods with which to install USB bootable windows onto and I have tried them and they do not work.

What starsky_70 is saying is that it is likely that the external drive is formatted NTFS, and out of the box NTFS is read only on Mac OS X. But if you formatted it exFAT then it would be read/write on both operating systems without the need for additional software.

As @bmike♦ said, BootCamp gets updated when you update OS X: indeed i'm running 10.11 and i've got Boot Camp Assistant version 6. Now, i did the same thing: i updated from Windows 8 to Windows 10 and i didn't need to update any drivers whatsoever. I had my Windows 8 installed with BootCamp Drivers (but i didn't had the whole partition thingy because I ...

Open BootCamp Assistant and open the about window. You should be similar to Version 5.1.4 (500) if you are on 10.10.5 BootCamp gets updated when you update OS X so it's really not dependent upon any version of Windows whatsoever so you would be up date on BootCamp even if you deleted your windows partition and started over.

I think the best option here is to use Microsoft Remote Desktop. This is different than the Remote Desktop Client you mention. It has a orangish / red icon and can be found in the app store for free. During setup for the connection there is an option for resolution, have that selected to "native" and you should be able to take advantage of full screen. I ...

The only way to do this is to install the windows version that your mac accepts at first then once installed you can upgrade to Windows 8 from there.

Actually, after my comment above I played around a bit and got to the same screen as the original post. However: you should choose edit partitions. Chances are there will be 2 partitions of which the second was not selected (which was my actual windows drive). Selecting the second partition instead of the first actually resolved it for me.

I upgraded to from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I was able to either click "Skip" or "Do this later" when asked for the Product Key. Once I finished installing, Windows 10 activated. Running Windows 10 from an upgrade was a disaster. However, this fixed my problem. Now, when I do clean installs, Windows 10 activates.

According to Apple's Knowledge Base article, your iMac isn't supported directly in Boot Camp. https://support.apple.com/kb/HT204990 You should probably get VirtualBox or another VM solution to run the Windows 10 as that would bridge the driver gap better than trying to piece things together yourself. It might be possible, but I don't know where you'd ...

Have you run the AMD driver setup from your WININSTALL flash drive? That should do it for you. To find the setup file, open Windows File Explorer, and then go to D:\BootCamp\Drivers\AMD\AMDGraphics\Setup.exe. Remember to replace D with the correct disk that WININSTALL is on.

I've had similar issues : while I was holding the key, the system would do as if if didn't recognize the keyboard(I'm on a iMac, with Bluetooth connection between the computer and the keyboard). On the contrary, with a usb port keyboard, it worked anytime ! (but that wasn't practical to plug another keyboard) I understood that you have to be sure that the ...

I made a clean install on my MacBook Air using Bootcamp. I created a bootable USB with Bootcamp. Process was smooth.

Where to start…? … This is the current picture as I understand it, & may be subject to change/correction To get your 'free' Win 10 you must upgrade an existing activated installation, otherwise you will have to enrol in the Insider Program when it reopens to continue to use it [or keep installing fresh every month to a VM that cannot be identified as ...

I updated from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro 15 inch Retina 2013. Best is not to do a clean install but choose to upgrade the existing OS, Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. This will avoid a lot of problems with the authentication key you need for Windows 10 and the necessary drivers. Windows 10 will use the Bootcamp Windows 8. 1 drivers which are ...

Microsoft tried to focus on backwards compatibility with Windows 10, supposedly retaining support for drivers designed for Vista. I've been running Windows 10 on a newer Mac and it works fine. I'm sure you'll have no issues.
