I installed windows 7 by using refit and I have no recovery mode. Anyway to clean install?
I have a MacBook Air with both Mac and Windows installed, via bootcamp. Today, when trying to initialize macOS a prompt appeared telling me to type my password to unlock the disk. As i have never seen anything like this happen, I entered the password which just restarted the pc and the same prompt appeared, still asking me to enter the password. None of the solutions I tried worked, and I’m scared of venturing deeper into them as I am afraid of losing data. What else can I do? I have made sure that the Apple software is updated (through windows).
Ok so I currently run Mac OS on an external SSD, and I was wondering how would I go around partitioning the SSD. Under disk utility, I noticed how there were two separate externals, as you can see in the screenshot. Would I partition the MAC SSD to be partially an MS-DOS (FIAT) or the MAC SSD - DATA to be one.
So I'm about to start UNI, and most of the programs I'll need for my course are Windows only, so I want to BootCamp my 2019 Sonoma MacBook Pro, however, I want to be still able to switch back to the Mac operating system. If I BootCamp, does it:
A: Show up as a separate user? allowing me to quickly jump between the two.
B: replace the Mac software completely so it's just a Windows OS in a fancy Mac casing
C: Create a separate hard drive so I have to completely restart my computer and choose to run on Windows instead for that specific startup?
D: do something completely different meaning that I am in fact braindead?

Running windows 10 through boot camp on Mac mini. When I restart in advanced settings there is no option for me to access PCI
I created a different partition in Disk Utility with the filesystem MS-DOS (FAT32) which I actually had to do it in OS X utilities in order for it to work. (I forgot to say that I’m running OS X Mavericks) I then plugged in my SuperDrive from Apple with a full OEM copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, and it did boot into the installation screen, but neither the trackpad nor keyboard are working. Has anyone else had the same issue?
I recently downloaded windows 10 and MADE THE BIG MISTAKE POSSIBLE! Basically after I installed windows I cancelled boot camp installation and now my Mac is gone and worst about it it’s that I’m soundless. There has to be another way to get sound right, RIGHT???
Hello Mac friends. How do you upgrade without data loss from Windows 11 22H2 build to 23H3 built but by passing the TPM and all that complication? The latest Rufus can't do it, even with the no TPM and all that checked. Is there another powerful app, more powerful than Rufus that can bypass the TPM.
Also if I make the installer, it has the win32kfull.sys BSOD

Thank you. God bless you. Advanced Merry Christmas & a Joyful New Year.
I have Windows 10 installed on iMac through Bootcamp, and I'm using the wireless keyboard that came with the iMac. The problem is that the keyboard is always on, even when I switch it off using the toggle on the back. It keeps working !!
I know it's not a problem with the keyboard itself because when I switch to macOS, it works correctly. Has anyone else experienced this issue? How can I fix it?

i’ve got a 3.2ghz quad core i5 16gb ram and 2gb graphics card. when using boot camp and windows it’s slow as and shows cpu useage at 100%. what can i do to make a smother experience and less usage or even turbo boost cpu?
Hello all, I’ve been messing around with an old unibody (2009 15-inch) MacBook Pro trying to get a solid Windows install for days now, and am still having issues.
Long story short, I couldn’t get Windows 10 to install via Boot Camp, so I installed it manually (no OS X partition). At this point, Windows installed fine. I then ran Apple’s setup.exe included with the WindowsSupport files for my Mac (downloaded them to USB before deleting OS X). Of course, I had to run that in Win7 compatibility mode, but it worked. It then prompted me to restart to “complete the driver installation”. Now it doesn’t boot. Just goes into the Windows recovery state saying “something went wrong”. I can boot into Windows in Safe mode, but as soon as I try normal mode again, it fails. Couldn’t find the Apple drivers in Safe mode… Is there a way I can remove those drivers without having to reinstall Windows entirely? Has anyone else had this issue? Does this issue mean I cannot use the proper Apple/Boot Camp drivers with Windows on this machine?
If I missed any important details that would be useful for assisting me, please let me know and I will do my best to answer. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Or do we have to get a third party program like Prey?
Thank you for reading and hopefully answering. :)
Like more heat, CPU, storage, etc. macOS is nicer. :/

How to get a product key on windows 10 bootcamp?
I run BootCamp on an external SSD with Tiny11. They had a pretty big update recently, but I can't seem to do an in-place upgrade to version 2311. Has anyone been able to do it?
When I change resolution, it doesn’t do anything on roblox and all it does is change text scaling but not the screen (on Roblox). Also on AMD software i cant change resolution cuz I can’t find anything to change it.
I've tried this two times already and whenever I get to the select destination drive part my drive will not show up. I have my drive connected to windows and everything already, does anybody know a fix to this?
I like being able to use Windows 11 for a few things I need that aren’t available in macOS, but holy, can I do something about my display colors while in macOS? It looks like saturation in Windows 11 is double to what it is in macOS, it looks cartoonish for some things. Does anyone else have it and maybe knows what I could do? If it matters, I have a 2018 MacBook Pro. Thank you!
Sometimes when it does this it loads automatically into the mac partition and has the little loading bar thing and then I can just restart it and hold alt and everything’s fine. Now it won’t even let me hold down alt to get to the partition selection screen because every single time I restart it it keeps doing the loading bar shit. I tried logging in to the Mac partition in case there was something hanging up there like an update waiting to be confirmed or whatever, nothing. No matter how many times I restart it I can’t get to the partition selection screen, I can boot into verbose mode easy as and nothing looks out of the ordinary but I can’t get into recovery mode or open the partition selection.
The fuck is going on?
by toss out i mean reformat it and do smthn completely different
do i need to have it inserted to boot into windows or is it now useless / not needed?
