I think I have finally found a reliable answer for this.
Win+A brings up the action center
If you dont see "connect" you may need to click expand
Click Connect and then you can force connect your Bluetooth device.
For those that like shortcuts, Win+K from anywhere in Windows takes you directly to the "Connect" page and allows you to click your device and ...
After hours of searching the internet, I discovered how to enable virtualization in Boot Camp. Instead of booting into Windows by holding the option key on startup, boot in to OS X. Then go to System Preferences -> Startup Disk and choose your Boot Camp partition. The computer will restart and boot into Windows, with virtualization enabled.
I had the same problem as well. The issue seems to be that the Bootcamp software is looking for the correct Realtek drivers, but can't find them so it just hangs. To fix it, manually install the drivers from Realtek while the Bootcamp setup is running. Then, go to Task Manager, find the Setup process, right click and press Go to details. Then find the ...
It is not possible to do this the way you are thinking. The problem lies in the tight integration of Apple's firmware and OS X. OS X and the firmware work with each other to determine the sleep state of the computer.
When Windows hibernates, it dumps the contents of RAM to C:\Hiberfil.sys and sets a flag in the registry that the machine is hibernated. ...
For those on the regular Windows 10 desktop without touch, you need to open the connect widget from the system tray notifications icon ...
Click the existing device to reconnect to
While this workflow is ok, ideally there should also be a reconnect button in the main control panel too.
For me the solution was just to Unmount the windows 10 iso.
If it's not working, I found another solution, you have to edit the info.plist of the Boot Camp Assistant's package content:
Open a Finder window.
Navigate to Applications>Utilities
Control Click or Right Click on Boot Camp Assistant and select "Show Package >Contents"
Open the ...
I finally found another post on another site with the exact problem and solution that fixed it for me.
Apparently there's a separate brightness setting for the screen when it's plugged in vs when it's not. The issue was the 'plugged in' version of the brightness setting was all the way to the lowest (black). Safe mode must have worked because the boot ...
Ok, here's how I solved my problem in the end (resizing a windows 10 bootcamp partition):
Shrinking the macOS partition
Boot into recovery mode and open terminal
Run diskutil cs list to list core storage logical volumes, and copy the Logical Volume UUID
Resize the logical volume with diskutil cs resizeStack LVUUID size where size is a parameter such as 80g (...
I also was looking for solution to this issue and find it by understand the roots of problem. Bootcamp utility creates hybrid-MBR table and this prevents Windows 8 to be installed. Now when Win 8 installer have EFI boot mode, we actually don't need Bootcamp utility at all.
I removed Bootcamp partition with Bootcamp utility - this reverts partition table to ...
It took a lot of searching, but here goes. First, cover the basics:
Update drivers and Windows stuff with Windows Update
Update Bootcamp drivers with Apple Software Update
Then, the not so subtle part:
Switch to Mac if your mouse is already paired there and unpair it. You can try and re-pair it later.
Switch to Windows, pair the mouse.
If the ...
You can still boot the macOS partition right? You can hold down Alt/Option upon startup and it will give you a list of bootable volumes. Choose Macintosh HD (or your macOS partition) to boot it. Once you're done, you may wish to change the default boot to macOS in System Preferences -> Startup Disk. To boot your Windows partition again, hold Alt/Option upon ...
You can't disable the automatically installation of drivers for a specific device. But you can choose, that you can choose, what to do, at the device-manager.
Follow this tutorial from wiki-how:
Search for "Change device" in the Windows 8 Start menu.
Click on where it says Change device installation settings.
Select the No, let me choose what to ...
The startup chime always plays through the internal speakers, even on desktop models. This is a feature of the firmware and can't be helped. But you can mitigate it.
Macs remember the different volume levels for the internal speakers vs. the headphone jack, and it saves this information to the PRAM. So all you have to do is unplug your headphones (that's ...
That's a hybrid MBR. It's necessary to boot Windows in BIOS mode, but if you plan to install Windows 8 or 10 in EFI mode, you need to replace the hybrid MBR with a legal protective MBR. You can do this with my GPT fdisk (gdisk) program:
Launch gdisk on the disk (sudo gdisk /dev/disk0 in your case).
Type x to enter experts' mode.
Type n to create a new ...
Unlike most other laptops, MacBook Pros with dGPUs use a graphics muxer to physically switch which GPU is pushing pixels to the display. By contrast, most other laptops simply share a framebuffer which both GPUs push to and the display can read from via some methodology. If you want to read about this more, I recommend you read up on the Linux kernel's ...
This seems to have something to do with how you boot the Windows partition.
https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/122071/88382 suggests rebooting into OS X, choosing BOOTCAMP from the Startup control panel, and then booting into Windows. This enabled virtualization on my machine. (I had previously booted into Windows using the Boot Camp Assistant, and ...
In window 8 through 10 you can REconnect by going to Action Center. On windows 10 swipe to your LEFT from the RIGHT side of your touch screen. There is a tile in the sidewindow that comes up with the word Connect in. Find your device, then click on connect.
I know you aren't going to believe this, but if you want to navigate to the same window from a ...
Before fully answering the question, a better explanation of the problem needs to be made. Microsoft provides this website to download Windows 10. Below is a snapshot of what Windows users will see. Mac users will not see what is shown below.
Instead, Mac users are automatically redirect to this website. Below is a snap shot of the website.
When using the ...
If you can't install Bootcamp itself for whatever reason (in my case, I'm just using an apple keyboard on a PC rather than dual-booting a mac), you can still get your function keys working correctly using the boot camp drivers pack on Apple Support.
Within the zip file, the BootCamp\Drivers\Apple folder contains two files of interest:
Bootcamp (free from Apple) gives you the ability to boot your system into Windows, which is installed on a separate disk partition from OS X. OS X functions are not available while Windows is running.
Parallels ($), VMWare Fusion ($), and VirtualBox (free) are virtual machine managers, which allow you to create a Windows (or other O/S) system that runs ...
I had not activated my copy of Windows, and the evaluation had expired. This was causing the computer to shut down (without any kind of message except in the logs..)
Activating Windows solved this problem.
Open Windows Services from Control Panel>Administrative Tools
Once open find "Device Setup Manager" in the list and double click it, then change startup type to "Disabled"
This will stop automatic driver installation for all hardware.
I encountered the exact same problem after updating to El Capitan. You should take a look at the "csrutil" command. Boot recovery partition, fire up a terminal (from the Utilities menu) and enter the command to see how to use it. Executing "csrutil disable" and rebooting the machine afterwards fixed the problem for me. In addition to that I created a new VM ...
I ended up asking on microsoft answers forum and a support engineer gave me the perfect answer.
Her answer was as follow :
The issue could be because of incompatible or corrupted drivers on the computer. Please follow the below steps to resolve the issue :
Open the Device Manager.
Tab once, then go down with the arrow keys to the list of ...
You can check it in Device Manager:
Press Win+R key.
Type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.
Look for Mice and other pointing devices.
There should be an entry for your trackpad. Open it.
On the Details tab, select Hardware Ids property.
There should be a value that matches the one in registry.
Solved. This seems a problem of power management.
To fix it, go to power management settings and find the Wi-Fi part. Set the value of Using Battery on Power Saving Mode to Max Performance. Then restart Windows.
I think this is a bug in Windows because I had this problem when I used with power plugged in...
It turns out, Windows 8.1 is not currently compatible with the latest Intel HD 5000 drivers! I probably should have mentioned that fact.
I was able to fix the issue completely by installing the beta drivers for Windows 8.1, more information here: http://techau.com.au/intel-hd-5000-driver-issues-with-windows-8-1/.
I then downloaded the drivers from here: ...
