comment Creating A Bootable USB Of Windows 8.1 On OS X?
Might be... still guide should notice this as there is no progress indicator. I ended up creating the bootable USB key using Windows which took 23 min. (same USB key).

While this worked... I must say that I almost gave up. Step 9 took many hours (guide should note this): 3708465152 bytes transferred in 29540.931255 secs (125537 bytes/sec)

comment Why is a Retina MacBook running 1440x900 grainy under Boot Camp?
No...it's actually a 27" iMac from 2010, so it's build in. BUT it's an AMD Radeon HD 5800 card!! So this properly "proves" that this is a driver issue, which makes sense to me.

comment Why is a Retina MacBook running 1440x900 grainy under Boot Camp?
I'm sure this is right. But I still can't understand why running 1440x900 on a 2880x1800 (15") monitor is any different than running 1280x720 on a 2560x1440 monitor (27"). I just tested this and while 1280x720 on a Cinema display is huge, this resolution is not blurry like e.g. 1920x1080 and other 16:9 resolutions.

comment Why is a Retina MacBook running 1440x900 grainy under Boot Camp?
Update: I actually ordered a MacBook Air to replace the Retina. And while preparing the Retina for sale I removed Boot Camp and installed Parallels. And boy... Parallels does actually show Windows without being grainy (well... it's a bit grainy, but nothing I think about). For a long time I didn't see my self running Windows in a VM, but I must say that after a month I'm pretty happy... so happy I updated my iMac to run Parallels as well. So I canceled the Air order ;-)

comment MacBook Retina Display for coding
Downvote for recommending running Retina on Windows. It might be that you love it. But in general running retina under windows is just not any good when running in 150% (or anything else but 100%). Partly will many programs start to misbehave, and cut of texts etc. Partly because if you attach an external screen, they will be forced to run with large fonts as well. Also programs like remote desktop does not support DPI scaling, so everything is very small. I've been running with the retina for weeks, and I just put it on sale, and bought a new computer. I absolutely hate retina under Windows.

comment MacBook Pro with Retina display - three external displays under Boot Camp
The problem is that Windows does not run well wit Boot Camp. You'll have to run in 150DPI, which means your external screens will also run in 150DPI (this is a no go). You could also run in eg 1920x1200 on your retina... But that is very blurry (like going from none retina to retina, just the other way). This is also true even if you run with perfect pixel doubling 1440x900 (apple.stackexchange.com/questions/59283/…). I've just sold my retina because it simply does not work in Windows (external screens or not). Period!

comment Why is a Retina MacBook running 1440x900 grainy under Boot Camp?
Thanks for trying to explain this to me. I can't say I understand it. I just simply don't see why a 15" (retina) display with 2880x1800 running in 1440x900 is any different than a 27" display with 2560x1280 running in 1280x720. Windows does not know that the retina display is only 15". But I must conclude that my theory is not valid... running in 1440x900 is awful. So is running in any other resolution like 1920-1200 or 2880x1440 (in 150 DPI). Conclusion: I have to sell this laptop and find something else.

I'm not sure this is true. Windows sees 2880x1800. Unlike OS X Windows actually reports 2880x1800 and are able to run in this resolution. But it is VERY tiny. Therefore the driver defaults to 150DPI.
