    Hello everyone,

    I have installed Windows 10 on my iMac 2011 (21.5 Core i5 iMac/2.5GHz 8GB ram). I am well aware that the machine isn't supposed to be supported but I tried anyways and it works almost flawlessly.

    I only have one problem: I cannot make my Apple Keyboard and Magic Mouse (both 1st gen) to function properly.

    /// My keyboard works great with the Apple layout selected but the function keys don't work

    /// The scroll, right click and multi-touch don't work on the mouse

    The system recognizes them both as a generic PIH keyboard and HID mouse.

    The version of Bootcamp that's installed is 5.1 and I can't see any keyboard or mouse related tab in the Bootcamp control panel.

    I've already tried quite a lot of the solutions I found on the web but I remain convinced that there is a fix.

    As anyone succeeded? How did you do it? Do you guys have ideas? Any tutorial I should know of?

    Thanks in advance for your help, greatly appreciated!

    Perhaps this guide will help you to get the function keys working. As for the mouse, see this.

    Thanks a lot! I had tried the first one before but I gave it another go. I may be doing something wrong but it's not working. The second one isn't working either (program can't see the mouse is connected).
