    Boot Camp is casing kernel_task to overclock CPU

    I have a late-2016 MBP (w/ Touch Bar/Retina). Since the last update (to 10.15.5) every time I boot back into macOS from being in Windows 10, kernel_task starts overclocking the CPU. It will run up to near 500%. Regardless of what time of day it is, if I boot into Windows, then back into macOS...

    2017 iMac with 2TB Fusion drive running 10.15.3 beta. I can install Win10 and use it without issue until I complete the final step of running the boot camp installer in Windows.

    I installed Boot Camp on my iMac. Windows 10 worked fine. But now I can't boot up in Mac OS (10.14) anymore. I already tried holding down option while restarting. When I do that, it doesn't give me the option to choose which OS I want, it just starts up Windows. When I click on "Boot Camp...

    WiFi instability in Windows 10 under Boot Camp

    I have a MacBook Pro, 2016, 15 inch. When in OS X, the internet works exactly as expected. Decent speeds, relatively stable ping.

    Boot Camp partitioning taking forever

    Today I wanted to install Windows 10 on my iMac for the first time with Boot Camp, so I downloaded the ISO file from the official site (the April 2018 version) and then started Boot Camp. It all went well, but then the loading bar stopped at 2/3. It stopped at "partitioning disk" - felt like 2...
