a little update here... macOS High Sierra beta 9 (and GM) brings us a BootRom update for ALL Macs supported by HighSierra, so that they can boot from APFS drives. The very, very good news about this is that this update ALSO brings NVMe boot ability on every mac back to the Mac Pro 6.1 (Late 2013) upwards... So every Mac which have an Apple 12+16 PCIe ...

Yes, It is possible to download the Bootcamp drivers outside of the Bootcamp tool: Updated: timothy-sutton's answer will make your life so much easier, go there first For Windows 7 through 10, Apple have published a table of 'which download you need for which model' at https://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634.

I have written a tool that helps me deploy Boot Camp in an organization where we manage a dual-boot lab environment, and one of its features is that it can download the driver package for arbitrary models: https://github.com/timsutton/brigadier Either git clone or download an archive of the repo, then within the root of the repo (using an iMac15,1 here as ...

First of all, connect the adapter and reboot. In many cases, it will solve the problem. You need to reboot because the adapter is not hot-pluggable. For the same reason, if you remove and re-insert the adapter, it won't work until you reboot. If you still have difficulties, I've found driver information while looking at the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet ...

Since Mac OS 10.2, printing is handled by the CUPS system. While drivers are typically found in /Library/Printers, the folder can contain support files and many other things which are not themselves print drivers, and in the real world there is no canonical location within the folder where the actual driver files are stored. The only authoritative list of ...

Hardware Drivers in OS X are typically in the form of Kernel Extensions and the primary location is /System/Library/Extensions/ however they can also be within an Application Bundle. You can use kextunload to unload a Kernel extension. To see what Kernel extensions are loaded use the kextstat command in a Terminal. Have a look at the manual page KEXTUNLOAD(...

This feature was removed in OS X 10.8. You have to use the CUPS interface by running cupsctl WebInterface=yes from Terminal and then pointing a Web browser to http://localhost:631. From there: Open the Printers tab. Select your printer and select Modify Printer from the second drop-down menu. (You’ll have to provide your OS credentials.) Select your printer ...

First, find out if the package is installed, and it's name: pkgutil --pkgs | grep -i ftdi It should output: com.FTDI.driver.FTDIUSBSerialDriver Then get a list of files: pkgutil --files com.FTDI.driver.FTDIUSBSerialDriver In my case, this was the result: Library Library/Extensions Library/Extensions/FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext Library/Extensions/...

The new Keyboard driver on Bootcamp broke the connection for my keyboard under Windows 10 and it might break yours too. So after using the solution from Zidad for the last couple of months (thank you) I decided to find a better solution to be able to use the Fn button and all the volume and multimedia functions of the Apple keyboard, here is what you need ...

Yes - the vast majority of ethernet adapters work - especially USB-C since they are generally very new, a little more pricey and use the standard types. The Belkin you listed is both plug and play when the OS is booted, it also works at netboot from the hardware / EFI / firmware so it's truly driverless on the new Mac. https://www.apple.com/shop/product/...

To expand on what CajunLuke said about changing the configuration on a per app basis. If you have Logitech Control Center for OS X installed you can use Advanced click settings for just VMFusion using the following steps. System Settings > Control Center Click the Plus button next to the global settings drop down and navigate to VMFusion and click select ...

Try this: Apple DL1443: Boot Camp Software Update 3.3 for Windows. It's called an update, but I suspect it doesn't require any pre-existing installed drivers. That said, it's probably worth your while to keep a minimal OS X install, even if it's just on a spare external drive (you could probably get away with a 16 GB USB drive even). It gives you a good ...

Just download iTunes, open the .exe file with winrar or some other similar software and then run the AppleMobileDeviceSupport(64).msi executable from there.

AFAIK the Apple HFS+ drivers are read-only. You may have installed another read/write driver like Paragon. To remove Apple HFS+ Driver: Browse to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ Move AppleHFS.sys & AppleMNT.sys to the Recycle Bin Create a Remove_AppleHFS.reg file with a text editor like NotePad and the following content: Windows Registry Editor Version 5....

The short answer is Yes and No, it depends on the Mac model. Thanks to @gillesaurejac who made the tests with the Sintech adapter and a lot of Mac models running macOS High Sierra. His results are: So, as for AHCI PCIe drives, (like the lite-on LGT-512B1P), they work in every 2013-2014-2015-2017 mac, but sleep is a concern with the 2014-2015 macs. ...

Go to /Library/Extensions and delete the "EPSONProjectorAudio.kext" kernel extension. The pesky EPSON Projector Audio driver should be gone after reboot. (If you can't see the Library folder on your hard drive, try Finder > Go > Go to folder… and paste /Library/Extensions)

Use Better touch tool. Freeware. You can assign macros to any button with this wonderful tool.

I've fixed this my using Fusion's "Key Mappings" feature. CajunLuke is correct: Windows was receiving "Win+Left" and "Win+Right", I simply re-mapped "Cmd+Left" to "Alt+Left" and "Cmd+Right" to "Alt+Right", and Explorer et al. seem to work correctly now.

I finally found how to add profile: put the icm file on that directory: Macintosh HD\Library\ColorSync\Profiles And you'll see your profile here.... Anyway, this did not solved my issue, it looks like Apple really want us to buy their incredibly expensive screens. I surely regrets paying 30 boxes to upgrade to 10.8.

Yo may find this app here: /Library/Printers/hp/Utilities/HPPU Plugins/ProductImprovementStudy.hptask/Contents/Helpers/HP Customer Participation.app Just move it to the trash.

You will need the admin password to install the driver. Xone comes with a kernel extension aka kext file. Kernel extensions are installed in /System/Library/Extensions/, only administrators can modify the contents of this folder. Ask an admin if he is willing to do it for you :)

I see from your comments to the posted answer of your other question (How to remove wireless network utility icon from the menu bar?) you have a TL-WN822N V3 and both the Utility package and the Driver package come with an Uninstall.command to run to remove what's installed. That would be the proper way to uninstall it.

I found a post about uninstallation of this audio driver. There is a kernel extension named PainterAudioDriver.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/ that adds the audio driver to the kernel space. To ensure that the kernel extension is loaded I used kextstat: kextstat | grep corel The result was: 131 0 0xffffff7f80fde000 0x4000 0x4000 com.corel....

You can check what was installed and remove it manually. Copy the *.pkg file to some empty tmp folder. Then: xar -xf YOUPACKAGE.pkg Then print the content of the Bom file with: lsbom $(find . -name Bom) You'll have the list of files like: (Here's the part for Cisco AnyConnect) ./opt/cisco/vpn 40755 0/0 ./opt/cisco/vpn/bin 40755 0/0 All file path ...

Update:I installed a Samsung 970 pro 1TB on macbook pro 13 2015 (A1502). And everything works well so far. Did not encountered the installation problem for PM981. The whole procedure is easy, the only thing you need to do is to format the disk to HFS+ in repaire mode (Command+Option+R) before install High Sierra using network. No usb disk is needed. Have ...

Please note there's an excellent guide on the MacRumors forum by user Cmd+Q which details how to upgrade your SSD step-by-step. Additionally there is an overview of different Apple SSD connectors as well, which helped me to better understand the different models. Summary (from the guide): 2013-2014 MacBooks use a non-standard connector (12+16 pins) for the ...

I found this tip from DiskAid website: You need to manually install the required driver, the "Apple Mobile Device Support" or AMDS. Download the iTunes installation package from the official Apple Website. You need a program that can open a CAB file and extract contents from it. 7-zip or WinRar can do it. Inspect the content of the iTunes installer ...

This question is old, but in case anyone is still looking, a driver that works is here: http://www.holstschumacher.dk/p/brightness-controller.html Look for the link to Beta Versions and Old Releases for the latest. The beta version works with Windows 10 Creators update as of 12/25/2017.
