    I was able to install Windows 8.1 via bootcamp, but Bluetooth doesn't show up. I reinstalled all drivers and even downloaded Bluetooth software from Broadcom, but it keeps looking for Bluetooth device and won't install drivers. Any suggestions?

    use the latest bootcamp 6.0, it will detect bluetooth in windows 10 on your macbook 2015

    actually you can try it out, since bootcamp 6 support 8.1 as well, doesn't hurt to try.

    I did, it doesn't work. Still no Bluetooth on my 12" Retina MacBook despite it running Windows 8.1 and Bootcamp 6. And yes, I updated all the firmware with Apple and Windows yesterday.

    How much was the Beach House and the BMW ? No Apple Edition Watch ($ 17,000), just a Rolex ? As an Elitist Club® Member, do you get a discount ;) ? Funny people here ... :)

    Beach House $500,000, BMW $60,000, Rolex was $12,000, Apple Watch is not a good product, wouldn't want one no matter the price.
