Hi, I wasn't quite sure of where to start this topic but since people running Windows with Boot Camp on a Thunderbolt 2-equipped Mac can possibly answer my questions I've decided to try my luck here. My goal is to connect two 2012 Macs running OS X 10.9.5 (both with Thunderbolt 1) to a Windows 8.1 file and VM server that has two Thunderbolt 2 ports using the Thunderbolt ethernet bridge functionality and Corning's optical TB cables. Dick move from Intel, for some reason they only allow Windows machines with TB 2 to use the ethernet bridge feature: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2014...s-thunderbolt-ethernet-capability-to-windows/ I don't have the TB 2 motherboard yet so I can't test it myself. I'm a little bit worried that the Windows machine's TB 2 controller "senses" the TB 1 device on the opposite end and switches to a "TB 1 compatibility mode" preventing the Intel Thunderbolt Windows driver from establishing the TB bridge. Could a user with access to TB 2 and TB 1 machines be so kind as to test this scenario? It should be sufficient to boot Windows on a TB 2-equipped Mac and connect any TB 1 Mac (Windows on a TB 1 system doesn't do anything when another TB 1 computer is connected) Thank you very much for your help!
