Hi everyone
I just installed Windows Server 2008 R2 on my MBP and obviously first problem appeared that you can't login to Windows as there is no del key on Mac. I tried to use On-Screen keyboard but for some bizarre reason ctrl+alt+del doesn't work (or maybe I just don't now how to do it). I did some research about remapping keys but I didn't find any solution. For me it's not an option to use external keyboard with a laptop only to login once in a while. Eventually I disabled logging in with ctrl+alt+del but I can't believe that there is no workaround for such a silly thing. Does anyone have a solution for that?

You must be doing it wrong, there are four keys you have to press control alt function delete

I installed Windows 10 on my MacBook 4,1, and now I'm here with the completely useless 'Eject' key. I'd like to remap it to 'Delete' or 'PrtScr'. I did not find a program or solution yet, that can solve this problem.
Thanks for your help.

For full-size (desktop) keyboards, use Control-Option-Forward Delete.

For abbreviated keyboards (on portable computers), use Function-Control-Option-Command-Delete.

from This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

That's out of date now (which is why it's no longer updated :)) - on portables, you just need function-control-option-backspace

Have you tried the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator?
