Anyone know if its possible to have Windows 8.1 on the same computer alongside with OS X Yosemite?
Yes, just do a standard Boot Camp UEFI install.
Bluetooth will never work on a new 12 inch macbook retina
Thanks for the great article link. So I guess if you have to use a mouse since Bluetooth will never work, you have to carry an extra cable around...how stupid since no ports
I'm sure bluetooth will work once Apple gets around to releasing new drivers. Alternatively, you can usually find the updated bluetooth drivers from the manufacturer online.
The far easiest solution, especially since you have 8gb of ram, is to use virtualbox/vmware/parallels to run Windows 8.1 in a VM within OSX.
Read the link above, I have bootcamp installed and I tried downloading drivers from Broadcom and it wont install
I refuse to believe it will be forever impossible to get bluetooth working in windows. It's a standardized part, I'm sure broadcom will eventually release an updated driver that works properly.
Yes, it works, but be aware of a few caveats. First, never boot it into safe mode. The keyboard doesn't work at the login screen, and there is no guarantee that you can plug in a keyboard into the USB port. Second, the trackpad drivers that Apple supplies aren't that great, and don't support natural scrolling or Force Touch. Third, since OS X and Windows use different implementations of UEFI, there is the possibility that one or the other can corrupt the GUID "partition table."
yes you can incl. all the viruses/maleware !!
Does that also apply to other Macs?
but windows 7 can still be installed in bootcamp? or it was removed?
Yes. Windows 8.1 natively supports UEFI, so those of us used to Windows 7 may not be familiar with it. It enables quick boot times, and usually works great, but if you use Boot Camp I'd advise keeping frequent backups of both partitions (not a bad idea anyway).
The new MacBooks support Boot Camp only for Windows 8 and up.
Alright thanks I'll keep that in mind when my rMB arrives.
Btw do you know the easiest way to legally get Windows 8 to use for Boot Camp?
Hi, i tried to install 8.1 on my MacBook. but every time, it stuck at the blue screen showing Windows Setup. The keyboard is not responding. I have no idea how else i can install it. please help. thanks
I'm planning to run Win 10 in a VM, anyone know which app is the best to do the job?
Parallels or VMware?
Buy and download the ISO from Microsoft and then run the bootcamp installer and follow the steps. You also need an empty USB flash drive with at least 8gb of storage.
Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but the two times I installed Windows under bootcamp on the rMB, the trackpad/keyboard wouldn't register any inputs during the installation process. I had to do something silly like USB-C to USB dock to get past the first couple of screens. At a certain point, the mouse and keyboard will begin to register.
Not sure if it was just my installation .iso or something else that was messing up.
Hi, i got the same problem also. what do you mean by USE-C to USB Dock? as in plug in a USB keyboard?
