Issue#588: Running Windows 10 on 2009 MacBook Pro

  • Hey everyone!

    So, I know that my particular Mac only technically supports up to Windows 7, but I was curious if it is possible to run Windows 10 on it?

    Or rather, it's possible, but what kind of experience does it bring? Do the drivers work? Does it behave like it is supposed to?

  • Issue#123769: 2009 MacBook Pro Issue: Flashing Folder with Question Mark on startup, new SSD

    Hi, all! This morning, when I went to boot up my Macbook Pro, I was greeted with the dreaded flashing folder with a question mark. I've dealt with this issue previously; however, installing a Samsung 850 SSD seemed to fix the issue. I tried the drive in another computer, and it works perfectly. The MacBook, however, is completely non-responsive to command-r, so I can't even search for a bootable drive. Any/ all thoughts are greatly appreciated!

It says "change soon" in the top-right corner when I check its status and I will change it in a couple of weeks, but I have a number of issues and I don't know if they are related to the battery.

    I just finished installing Windows 10 on my 2009 Macbook Air - 1.86Ghz, Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, fitted a long time ago with an after market 60Gb OWC SSD. When Yosemite was still on there - and running like a dog I might add - I booted in to the Recovery partition and formatted the Yosemite partition. This is not a Bootcamp install - I had to burn the Windows 10 ISO to a DVD drive and then install Windows 10 from the USB Superdrive. The windows 10 installer let me re format the main...

  • Issue#37178: Mid 2010 Macbook Pro running slow at startup and loading applications

    I have read a bunch of stuff online and it seems that since I have a much older MBP i should really update to an SSD, and go up to 8 gigs of ram (i have 4 right now). I haven't had any real problems except for my MBP taking 1:45 to bootup and sometimes 10 seconds for safari or iTunes to load. I have cleared out everything in safari to try and speed it up but nothing worked.

    My Yoga 2 Pro often runs slows, even in desktop mode. I'm wondering what the problem might be. I'm wondering if the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver might be leaking, as it seems to be using a lot of memory. Does anyone know if that could be the problem and whether it is possible to upgrade the driver to a newer version (and whether that would make a difference)? Are there any known issues that might cause a slowdown under Windows 10?

    Hello, I've been using a m555b Bluetooth for more than 4 years with the same laptop: Win7, Win8, Win8.1 and now Win10 But I currently can't: after the full new installation from scratch, I'm unable to pair it. The Broadcomm "Dell 365 Bluetooth"  module works fine, I've successfully paired an iPhone 5S, a Microsoft Number Pad and an audioset. It properly detects the mouse (including brand and model), when I press the "connect" button under it. But I press the "pair" button on the Bluetooth setting panel on Windows 10, I obtain the warning box "it didn't work - please try again and check your mouse can still be detected" When I press the "close" button and make a new attempt: no further sucess. I remember having suffered such a similar issue with Win8 3 years ago. Please help me!

  • Issue#125727: Premiere Pro - Premiere running in Windows does not recognize XAVC-I files imported from FCP X

    Hello, I am working remotely with an editor who is using Premiere CC 2015 on Windows 10.  I sent him XAVC-I footage that I shot on an FS-7 that was imported using Final Cut Pro X, so all of the files are QuickTimes.  When he attempts to import the footage into Premiere or AME, he gets the error, "... .mov could not be imported. The source file has an invalid codec. Please check that it is a valid file."   He has been able to successfully import the footage into Premiere running on a Mac, so this appears to be specific to Premiere in Windows.  We're dealing with hundreds of files and tens of hours of footage, so I'm hoping there is an easy fix for this.   Thanks in advance for any insights! Ben
