According to everymac.com, your Mac is a 2006 model which was discontinued January 8, 2008. (I made the assumption 2.66QX means 2.66 GHz Quad Core Xeon) This model originally was designed to run OS X 10.4.7. Since the Mac OS X v10.6.2 Update is dated Nov 9, 2009, I doubt the disc you have is the correct one for this model Mac. The OS X 10.7.5 (Lion) was ...

If anybody is struggling with this on Mojave (10.14) it's pretty simple: Copy Boot Camp Assistant.app to your desktop (just select it inside Applications/Utilites cmd+c and cmd+v on your desktop) On your desktop, tap on the boot camp icon with ctrl + click which opens contextual menu, select show contents and open info.plist in Xcode. Remove pre from ...

For the benefit of others, I managed to get this working. This is on Mojave by the way. I had to disable SIP in order to create the VMDK. It just wouldn't create the VMDK until I had disabled SIP (to disable SIP you have to boot your Mac in recovery mode by holding Command+R on start up, then when you're in recovery you open a Terminal - the option is ...

I have found that after upgrading to High Sierra, my 2013 iMac could boot the Windows 10 installer from a ExFAT formatted USB flash drive. Here are three potential ways to create the USB installer. I am sure there are may other ways. Answer #1 Mac computers running High Sierra or Mojave may be able to boot from USB flash drives that are ExFAT formatted. ...

diskutil apfs resizeContainer /dev/disk1 0 The command above fixed it :)

I would guess 10.6.2 would be just fine to boot most MacPro with that model, so you might have a hardware issue or bad DVD. More specifically, there are 8 models with A1186 - so you might need to try OS between 10.4 but most of them would work with 10.6.8 - so I’d start with any 10.6 media you can get your hands on if you can’t get a serial number or more ...

This is based on my own experience of installing Windows 10 on an external drive: Step 1: Download a virtual machine to run Windows on. I used VMWare Fusion and used a 30-day trial. You do not need to do this if you already have a computer with Windows 10 Step 2: Search "windows 10 iso image" and click the first link from Microsoft. Download it. Step 3: ...

This is terrible, but abandon all efforts to create this from OSX Mojave 10.14.4. I tried all the methods, I am a proficient power user and nothing worked. While I was continuously able to create a bootable usb drive, it failed on the windows installation with A media driver your computer needs is missing. I verified the downloaded iso, redownloaded etc, ...

I recently solved a very similar problem by removing my ARP cache. I have a MacBook Pro 2014 and Ubuntu 18.04 desktop which runs the SSH daemon, and every client works fine except my MacBook. I ran Wireshark and observed that pinging my desktop is only resulting in ARP requests to be broadcasted — I couldn't see response packets. At first I thought it's a ...

I got this working without driver updates or anything like that! Just for reference, today is 9/21/19 and I'm using Bootcamp on a MacBook Pro, Windows 10 Pro (but my guess is this will work with any Win 8 or 10). Go to Task Bar and click Bootcamp icon. Click Bootcamp Control Panel. Click Keyboard. Uncheck the box that says "Adjust Keyboard brightness in ...

I did everything listed above and none worked. This one did the trick. In windows 10: Right click the volume icon in the task tray, and choose Open Volume Mixer. Click device speakers Spatial Sound Windows Sonic for headphones. I dont know why but now my imac with windows 10 has max volume.

I had this issue... Solved by booting into MacOS and turning volume all the way up... then plug in headphones and turn volume all the way up... It was set to like %10 volume. The windows driver doesn't access the chip's volume properly.

You need startup files for your target OS. 1) Plug the Linux Installer on a Windows OS (It will mount the EFI partition only) 2) Copy the contents to some shared place to access it in Mac 3) Mount the EFI partition on your MAC 4) Copy the Linux startup files alongside Apple folder

I had the same error 4 days now searching what is the problem. The big problem here is that your image drive has a file over 4 GB (install.wim) and the usb format is FAT32 which can't handle over 4GB files. The solution was a program I found on internet which splits the install.wim folder to smaller. Here is the program: Bootcamp ISO Converter There are ...

For anyone else coming here, try this simple solution first. Disconnect the power (MagSafe plug). If the display comes on, it means your power profile is set to turn brightness down when the AC is plugged in. Solution: While power is unplugged, login and verify that the brightness controls work. Then plug power in and turn the brightness up. For some ...

The problem was solved after running a command diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk1 0g

Apple provides instructions for installing Windows 10. See Install Windows on your Mac with Boot Camp These instructions provide a link to the Microsoft Windows 10 download site. The October 2018 ISO (1809) has one file that exceeds the maximum file size for a FAT32 formatted partition. This can cause problems when the Boot Camp Assistant instructs a user ...

You appear to have created USB flash drive Windows 10 installers by using both rufus and and the Microsoft media creation tool. Both of these methods bypass the use of the Boot Camp Assistant. You are suppose to use the Boot Camp Assistant to copy the files to the USB flash drive. You should go to this website from Microsoft and download Window 10. The last ...

Is it doable? (setting it up without a screen) No. Installing Boot Camp will reboot the system into the Windows installer. You will need to see the screen to complete the installation. Any remote desktop software you've set up in macOS will be unavailable in Windows, including during the Windows install process.

NOTE: for this guide I will be using an external USB disk as the target volume, and a copy of Debian 9.8 (as it is the only Linux installer I have on hand). Due to the fact that Ubuntu is based on Debian, the process should be similar enough to apply to both systems. Due to the way APFS works, the entire capacity of the Container disk is able to be used as ...

Most users wishing to do what you want to do purchase VM Fusion or Parallels. VirtualBox is not really designed for what you are trying to do. Think of what would happen if you were to clone your Windows partition to another entirely different PC. You should not expect Windows to boot because you did not copy any boot code to the new PC. If you were to fix ...

In 2011, Windows was still being installed to BIOS boot on Macs. The drivers provided by Apple assume you will be installing for a BIOS booting Windows. You can not directly install a BIOS booting Windows on any model Mac using a flash drive. The easiest solution would be to burn a Windows 10 iso file to a DVD-R DL. Creating a burnable iso image from ...

Your starting configuration was slightly different than that of the question you posted a link to. So you would have had to adapt the instructions to meet your particular configuration. Step 14 shows the new partitions to be "swap", "ext4" and "ESP" in that order. Your current configuration shows you choose "swap", "ESP" and "ext4" in that order. This change ...

The problem is called overallocation. The following helped me to fix it on Mojave APFS: Please note, there is a lot of posts out there telling you to do fsck. If you are on APFS you need to do fsck_apfs instead. This is what made the difference for me. Shut down your Mac. Start and hold Cmd-S to boot into single user mode. Run fsck_apfs -o It will ask you ...

Under default conditions, you'll need to rename the BOOTCAMP volume from within Windows. In macOS, when the Boot Camp Assistant sets up a partition to install Windows it creates a FAT32 volume named BOOTCAMP. During the install of Windows, the user is supposed to reformat the volume as NTFS. By default, NTFS volumes are read-only under macOS and why the ...

So, I needed to use FAT32 for my BIOS to accept it, but both the April 2018 and October 2018 updates had an install.wim file that was over 4 GB (I downloaded the English international version for both, maybe other versions are different?). So I needed to split the file. Here is how I did it for anyone else who has this problem. I found this amazing guide ...

This is a very common question. Once again, the answer is given below. sudo diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk0s2 0
