  • Can I use an old Windows hard drive with Boot Camp?

    I have an old windows desktop that has FL Studio files I want to transfer to Logic Pro. I'm working on a Mac Pro with 4 hard drive bays and only 3 hard drives.
    I understand that Boot Camp lets you boot Wndows, but can I install Boot Camp without erasing the hard drive? I just want to be able to plug my PC drive in, hold the option key, and choose to boot the Windows drive from time to time.
    Alternately, could I make a disc image of my PC hard drive, reformat it to FAT and reattach the disc image?
    Thanks,
    Jon

    You can, but it's illegal. A OEM version is designed to be installed on a new computer, not on a computer with an existing operating system, so you can install Windows from there but you should know that's illegal, so Apple doesn't support it. To do this legally, you have to get a full Windows 7 disc version and use it to install Windows.

  • Can I use a Windows 7 backup in a boot camp installation

    Hi,
    About to buy a Mac and I was just wondering if I could use a Windows Backup System Image to install Windows 7 using Boot Camp Assistant in the Mac or if I need to have a brand new copy of Windows.
    Apologies if this sounds like an incredibly stupid question.
    Thanks for any help in advance.
    Ben

    If you restore the system from the backup, you would recover all your stuff, configuration, apps, etc. However I concur that you will need a new Windows license. MS offers no way of deactivating a previous instance and transferring it to a new host, at least in the workstation version. Were it a Server version, you can disable the activation on the old host and reuse the license on the new (just checked).
    The license/activation key is tied to the startup volume's UUID number, which is unique.

  • Can I use an external hard drive to install boot camp?

    What the question said also it'll be Windows 8.1 because that's the only one you can download from the M-soft store now.

    The answer is simple and has been stated many times before.  Boot Camp will not allow you to install to an external drive.  Until now, Windows made it nearly impossible to install on an external drive, although I hear that has changed with Windows 8.1 (but I do not have personal experience with that).
    If you use a different EFI boot loader, you might have much better luck installing Windows on an external drive, but Boot Camp does not support that.

  • DAS Keyboard with Boot Camp

    This message is directed to a small audience most likely. I would like to use the DAS Keyboard with my iMac, utlizing Boot Camp and running WIN XP PRO in the the PC partition.
    My experience about six months ago was unfavorable. Whatever I tried, I could not get the keyboard recognized when booting into the PC partition. It was GREAT in the MAC environment.
    Has anyone successfully used the DAS Keyboard in a similar application? If so, please post your feedback. It could be I simply received a bad board. Thanks!

  • Can I use other Apple USB Power Adapters with iPad

    I am looking for a spare  Apple Power Adapter to charge my iPad.  I have an iPad (3rd Generation), which came with a 10W USB Power Adapter, Model A1357, output 5.1V. 2.4A USB Power Adapter.  I have two other Apple Power Adapters 1) iPod Power Adapter, Model A1070, output 13V, .62A Firewire Power Adapter, 2) USB Power Adapter, Model A 1265, Output 5V, 1A,and  3) USB Car Adapter,   Can either of the latter three Power Adapters be used to charge my iPad

    Technically, yes, but they will trigger the 'not charging' because they're not giving out the 10W that your device wants. And charging with them will take significantly longer than the ipad charger.
    I'd only use them as a 'shucks, left my iPad charger at home and I'm in a pinch' situation.
    Your best bet would be to either get another iPad charger, or if you're trying to use one adapter for several devices, use the iPad one for the rest of your stuff.

  • HT201612 how to use ctrl+alt+delete to restart with boot camp

    how to use (ctrl+alt+delete) to restart?

    You press all the keys (ctrl+alt+delete) at once
    Some information
    In a personal computer with the Windows operating system, Ctrl-Alt-Delete is the combination of keyboard keys that the computer user can press at the same time to terminate an application task or to reboot the operating system (have it shut down and restart itself). In Windows 95 or any later systems, Ctrl-Alt-Delete brings up a window that allows a user to see the status of all currently running programs and to terminate any of them, and also offers the options of shutting down, restarting, and so on (the specific options vary slightly with the particular version of windows). In Windows 95 or 98, if Ctrl-Alt-Delete is pressed a second time or twice in a row quickly, the operating system closes all programs that are running and then restarts.
    When the operating system seems to hang suspended while waiting for an application program to continue, a user is also left without a way to regain control of the system. The Ctrl-Alt-Delete key combination allows the user to terminate the "hung" application and, if that doesn't work, to reboot the system. The system can also be restarted using the mouse to select Start-->Turn Off the System-->Restart. However, Ctrl-Alt-Delete sometimes works when the menu option doesn't.

  • Used to start up Windows 8 with Boot Camp, cannot anymore

         A few weeks ago I installed Windows 8 on my MacBook Pro (running Yosemite 10.10.1) and, with enough finagling, was able to get both systems running smoothly on my laptop. It has been about a week since I last tried to run Windows, but I just spent a little while trying to start it up to no avail. The first few times, I started with a shut down computer, turned on the power button, held option to bring up my start up preference, and selected Windows 8. The screen would just go black and the hard disk seemed to be cycling between sleep and wake cycles. Eventually I manually shut it off, tried again. Repeated two or three times, same result.
         Tried start up without holding option - the disk tried to launch Windows, then took me into a sort of recovery mode with a screen saying there was a problem with Windows. I explored the options it gave me (i.e. change start-up settings, reset Windows, recover Windows...) but was really unsure of what my best option was from here. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

    I'll elaborate; the finagling really just involved downloading the Windows drivers provided in Boot Camp, which didn't let me have wifi in Windows, so I downloaded a different set of drivers, installed those, and all was well.
    I do not have automatic OSX updates turned on.
    Those commands give me:

  • Is anybody else struggling with an intermittent connection when using the Magic Mouse/Trackpad ONLY on Boot Camp?

    Hi,
    I've seen thousands of posts about Bluetooth connection issues and interference and stutter/lag for both the Magic Mouse and Trackpad (affecting both Mac OS X and Windows under Boot Camp) but my problem is different.
    To summarise my setup, I use:
    - Retina MacBook Pro (lid closed or open, doesn't make a difference to this problem)
    - Thunderbolt Display
    - Wireless Keyboard
    - Magic Trackpad (have also tried a Magic Mouse and experience similar issues to the Trackpad)
    And in Mac OS X, everything works perfectly. The keyboard and trackpad work smoothly when I'm 6-7 metres from the machine, whether or not the laptop lid is open or closed, and whether or not the Thunderbold Display is connected.
    But on to my problem: the bluetooth connection is incredibly unreliable/intermittent when in Windows (I run Windows 7 64-bit and Boot Camp 4.0, and got both devices connected without any trouble via Bluetooth).
    But during usage, the cursor stutters/lags frequently, and tap to click (when enabled) seems to get triggered by mistake all the time (even when I'm not touching the Trackpad or even at the computer, clicks get registered).
    The Wireless Keyboard is perfect, and works well 5 metres from the machine. The Mouse and Trackpad, though, don't even work reliably when they are 6 inches from the machine. The built-in trackpad on the laptop works perfectly too, in Windows and Mac.
    I spent a week assuming I was suffering from Bluetooth interference, so I tried:
    - using the laptop with the lid open
    - removing the Thunderbolt display completely and trying the Magic Trackpad
    - repositioning items on my desk
    - disabling wifi
    All of these adjustments made minor differences to how good/bad the Trackpad was, but none came close to fixing the problem or making it work as smoothly as under Mac OS X. It was only after doing all of this that I realised perhaps it was just a Apple driver for Windows issue, so I booted into Mac OS X and tested everything out, and sure enough, it's all perfect. But back into Windows, the Trackpad doesn't work reliably at all.
    Obviously, the hardware is not at fault, and I assume the signal strength doesn't vary between operating system (why would it?) so I'm left believing this must be a driver issue. The TrackPad and Magic Mouse drivers have been out for a couple of years, so I'm surprised they can still be this bad. I tried both the latest driver from Boot Camp 4.0 (3.2.0.0) for the Trackpad, and also the older one from Boot Camp 3.2 (3.1.0.7) and both are equally bad for me.
    So my question is: has anybody else struggled with using the Trackpad (or Magic Mouse) with Boot Camp 4.0 and Windows 7 64-bit, whilst finding it to be perfect under Mac OS? I haven't found many posts complaining about the Windows driver, which is why I assumed it was an interference issue. But I'm almost sure it isn't, having spent 2 weeks investigating.
    Any thoughts/suggestions/answers much appreciated!
    Kyle

    SOLVED!
    After much testing, I have found the cause of lagging/jumpiness on the Bluetooth Magic Mouse and Magic TrackPad in Boot Camp. Hopefully this will help others:
    The drivers for the Broadcom 802.11n Wireless Adapter have a setting called "Bluetooth Collaboration" that is Disabled by default. Enabling this option removes the problem instantly. My Magic Trackpad now works flawlessly, even if I stand 6 metres from the machine. It now works just as well as under Mac OS. The setting can be found under:
    Control Panel > Device Manager > Network Adapters > Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter (right click and choose "Properties". Under the "Advanced" tab, highlight the setting named "Bluetooth Collaboration", then change it to Enable. Then click OK.
    I narrowed the problem down to the wireless card by disabling ALL startup services and processes for Windows, then re-enabling one by one. As soon as I enabled the Windows Wireless Service, the problem came back. Similarly, disabling the Wireless Card inside the Network and Sharing Center (or Device Manager) removes the problem. This led me to believe it must be a driver issue with the wireless card, since the problem didn't occur with the Magic TrackPad under Mac OS, or on my mother's Windows 7 64-bit computer. So when I went into the Driver Properties to check for an update, I found this setting about Bluetooth Collaboration.
    I really hope this helps others trying to use Bluetooth devices under Boot Camp. All Apple notebooks use the Broadcom card (and have done for years), so this driver is installed for almost anybody using Boot Camp on an Apple notebook. I'd assume this problem would affect anybody using Boot Camp + wifi + a Bluetooth device.
    Cheers

  • Can I use iphone 4s USB cable to recharge for the new ipad

    Can I use iphone 4s USB cable to recharge for the new ipad

    The iPod, iPad & iPhone cables are identical, however, the chargers are not.
    The quickest way (and really the only way) to charge your iPad is with the included 10W USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter (5W). When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge very slowly (but iPad indicates not charging). Make sure your computer is on while charging iPad via USB. If iPad is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPad battery will continue to drain.
    Apple recommends that once a month you let the iPad fully discharge & then recharge to 100%.
    How to Calibrate Your Mac, iPhone, or iPad Battery
    http://www.macblend.com/how-to-calibrate-your-mac-iphone-or-ipad-battery/
    At this link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/galaxy-tab-android-tablet,3014-11.html , tests show that the iPad 2 battery (25 watt-hours) will charge to 90% in 3 hours 1 minute. It will charge to 100% in 4 hours 2 minutes. The new iPad has a larger capacity battery (42 watt-hours), so using the 10W charger will obviously take longer. If you are using your iPad while charging, it will take even longer. It's best to turn your new iPad OFF and charge over night.
