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 had the same issue. Using bluetooth or wireless keyboard was the problem in my case. Rebooting from Bootcamp to Mac was too fast for the bluetooth/wireless keyboard connection. Switching to a cable connection fixed the issue.

As per my understanding, If you have a Macbook running a "genuine" copy of Windows 7/8/8.1 (properly licensed and activated), you can follow the same steps I did to upgrade it to Windows 10. Boot your MacBook from your Windows 7 and carry the steps: To get started, go to the Download Windows 10 webpage and click the Download tool now button. After the ...

Edit: You’d need a sample of startup files for your target OS. Mount EFI partition of your Mac and copy the corresponding folder in /EFI folder alongside with Apple. You can mount using terminal or better use a clover utility to mount EFI partition. If you run Ubuntu installation, it asks where you want to install the Bootloader. You can choose your Mac ...

Boot camp assistant is not allowing me to reduce the Windows 10 partition size to a value lower than 48 GB. That sounds about right as a practical lower limit for Windows 10. The Microsoft system requirements you're referring to are the absolute minimum resources required for the operating system to be installed; using Windows with that little disk space ...

The problem is that Windows thinks you have two screens attached. You aren't seeing any icons or windows because they're opening up on the "other" screen, which you don't have (you're seeing the "secondary" screen). Short story: Because you nuked the macOS partition and installed Windows from scratch, Windows likely installed in EFI mode, which is not ...

THere's nothing actually wrong with your Air's EFI, what you are experiencing are the death-throws of a failing-and-fading-fast SSD module. We tend to be rather blasé about solid-state drives these days, but seven years ago the technology was still maturing, and SSDs were still susceptible to sudden and inexplicable demise. When Jobs decided to start ...

As far as I remember, you have to delete the partition with Bootcamp first before you can add it to the rest with DiskUtility.

HDMI on Macs is a curse, because Apple decided to take the HDMI spec more than just literally – not only do they rigorously enforce HDCP, but they take the unusual move of letting the display set the rules, not the host machine. Nor do Apple stick completely to the DisplayPort spec; getting 4K out of a 2013/2014 machine requires one part luck and one part ...

Disk Utility's ability to do block-copy was never very good, and was further hamstrung when APFS entered the scene and the job of handling DMGs was handed over to the Finder. It has always had troubles dealing with non-Apple file-systems, which is the main reason Winclone was born. You're dealing with a container-ised NTFS volume, there aren't any tools in ...

I’m assuming you have a bootable Windows 10 pen drive with Mac drivers. I didn’t read any tutorials for doing it, the following is what I would try given your circumstances (and considering I’ve already installed Windows a few times on a few different Macs for gaming). I would try to go on with the Bootcamp Assistant even though it says Windows 8, follow ...

Actually they do work... in powershell run the installer for the force switch. Apple puts a check in the installer for each model. The 1809 compatible installer must be downloaded from a Mac that was built after 1809 was released. Example Mac Mini 8,1. Create the boot camp installer from that hardware and you can run that installer on previous versions of ...

The short answer is that you do not want to attempt what you are trying to do. At this point, I would recommend concentrating on undoing any damage that you might have caused by the steps you have already taken. You should edit your question and post the output from the following commands. diskutil list sudo gpt -r show /dev/disk0 sudo fdisk /dev/disk0 ...

Please keep in mind few things. 1) Keep your question that addresses one problem in one thread. 2) You’re lucky that you’ve been messing with disk partitions for two BootCamps and haven’t killed your machine to death. Keep a backup plan ASAP. 3) You can look into this thread for multiple windows instances but it all happens on one BootCamp. 4) Your audio ...

I am assuming that the screen resolution of MacOS is higher than your projector or vice-versa. Have you checked the option Scaled from Resolution option on Display and give a try with a different option from 1920 to 1280? Check it should work in lower resolution 1280X720 at least. You also check the maximum resolution support by your Projector.

Basically, your question is a duplicate, which has be asked many times before. For example, see the question: The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition. Windows 10 and Mojave I repeated my answer below. The answer was edited to more closely fit your question. This is a very common question. Again, here is the commands you ...

I usually use the Disk Utility tool to do this, because it shows the process quite clearly. It should be located in /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility. You might need to erase and/or reformat the partition before you can actually merge the partition. It's been a while since I've done this. This article has a nice overview of all the necessary steps: ...

The bootcamp tools installation did not help. I uninstalled the driver and restarted the mac. Then everything was ok.

Windows can't read APFS. To get back to macOS you need to hold the Opt ⌥ key at startup. BTW, don't ever let Windows adjust anything on your drive. Consider that Disk Management tool as a read-only utility. It doesn't understand how it's being fooled into thinking it's in charge & will break things.

Managed to get this working. For the keyboard/mouse issue, this is related to the Windows support software download from Boot Camp. Boot Camp Assistant > Action > Download Windows Support Software. Mine was around 1GB. Be patient. Don't use direct links you might find from other posts linking you to Apple support downloads. The contents should be copied ...

Per your request from the below quoted text, elaborating on this step: Use more than one EFI partition. A drive can have more than one EFI partition. Additional EFI partitions do not have to reside at the beginning of the drive. here is some info (I will make edits shortly when I have more time): An EFI partition (sometimes referred to as an ESP ...

I think I may be able to help you triple boot, although I haven't tried triple booting yet. I do know how to install Windows on a separate SSD, and I'm pretty sure you can just install Linux by partitioning the SSD. Here are the steps: Step 1: First, you have to install both Windows 10 and Ubuntu ISO files. Ubuntu from here: Ubuntu ISO File, and Windows 10 ...
