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?

    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...

    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#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!

  • Issue#292572: Running CVI 2013 SP2 with CVI 2015 - Windows XP Issue

    I see that XP is not a supported OS in CVI 2015. Most of our PC's are Win7 now, but we do have a few legacy units that require XP due to an external controller processor limitation. Is is possible to generate executables in CVI 2015 that will work properly with the 2013 Run-Time Engine? Alternatively, can CVI 2013 SP2 and CVI 2015 co-exist on the same development PC? I'd hate to get stuck with CVI 2013 SP2 for the forseeable future just to maintain a few XP-based PC's.

  • Issue#692140: Lenovo - Lenovo running windows 10 booting issue

    I've been having this problem for weeks now, it started out as just when I shut the lid to my computer it never turned back on. Or basically when it went into sleep mode.  What happens to the machine: you can still hear it running but the screen is just black. Keyboard is unresponsive and mouse too so just darkness. So I had to hard reset. I never found an answer so I disabled sleep mode, which is ridiculous but hey... I continued to have the problem if my laptop ran out of battery, presumably because it went into sleep mode. Except now when I tried to hard reset it it still didn't turn on. I hard reset, it closed down, I pressed the power button and it came on, just not the screen. And this even continued into just turning off my computer myself. Starting it up again was a massive PAIN. I'm talking 10+ power off then on, did it work?... Nope! And repeat. In the last couple of days it's escalated, two nights ago I had it plugged in, neatly fully charged, I was

    Hello, I am picking up an iMac 5K this week and I would like to experiment with having Windows 10 or 7 as a bootcamp option.

    I'm not sure which forum this should go in so figured I'd start here... I have a late 2013 MBP Retina still running Mavericks. I'd like to install Windows (7 or 10). Since I'm hesitant to upgrade to El Capitan, I'd be stuck with Windows 7 which is fine for me and seems to overall get better reviews right now. I definitely would get Parallels or VMWare Fusion but my question is whether I do an install of just a virtual machine or do bootcamp and then a virtual machine from that bootcamp....

    Hi guys, So I've recently acquired a white Unibody MacBook as a fixer-upper. I just need confirmation of the symptoms that the logic board is dead, because it simply doesn't turn on. Here's what I know from the previous owner: It did not come with a MagSafe adapter (had to use my own 60W)It has apparently "not been used in two years"Pretty crusty and dirty, lots of grime and dirt on the edges, corners, and keyboard (gave everything a careful swabbing with Q-tips and 90% rubbing alcohol). Here's what I've done: Plugged in MagSafe -- light was orange for maybe 5 seconds, then switched to solid green.Does not respond to the power button being pushed despite being plugged in.Opened it up, put in some new RAM (that I know is working). Repeated steps 1 and 2. No power.Left as-is, attempted to manually turn it on by shorting the "power pads". No power.Unplugged MagSafe, unplugged battery from logic board. Plugged MagSafe back in, stayed solid green. Pressed power butt

  • Issue#21038: Lenovo - Persistent System Freeze Issue on Newly Upgraded SSD on Windows 10 Y510P

    I purchased the MYDIGITALSSD M.2 256GB SSD to replace the 24GB M.2 that originally came with my Y510P. I completed the upgrade and re-installed Windows 10 (on the ssd) and use the 1TB drive purely as storage, and re-downloaded all of the necessary drivers for the laptop. Ever since then, i experience 3-4 system freezes daily. I am not able to get to task manager, just get a complete system hang and i have no choice but to restart the pc. It typically starts with one application, then after a few seconds, everything will freeze and become unusable. Does anyone have any advice on this? i read about someone having a similar issue a really long time ago but i cant remember where and can't find any info on this specific problem. It's driving me crazy though and i'd appreciate any advice or troubleshooting tips offered. thanks everyone. -Daniel

    I have an unusual use case.

The application renders stuff and records video (using AVPro Movie Capture), and that currently works. We want to generate these videos as fast as possible. So, we would like to take advantage of multiple video cards on the same machine. By default, would Windows/Unity just use...

  • Issue#27776: HP - Windows 10 Battery Issue?

    Got this Hp Notebook in December, wiped the drive and installed a fresh Windows 10 64 bit OS. Noticed the battery will jump from 100% to 93% everytime after a full charge and after using it for like 10 minutes. Thought it could be the battery deteriorating so I swapped out my battery with the exact same one from my sister's (with full charge) and it does the exact same thing. I've calibrated my battery before and updated everything. Is this a Windows 10 issue?
