Thanks for sharing, Maik!

Hi! I just followed this to install Windows 7, not 10 to play CS 1.6. I have to say that even boot from USB it's possible I couldn't use it with RUFUS and Win 7. I had to use the CD. I had Mohave on the MBP2011 thanks to dosdude1, but I downgraded to High Sierra to be able to use the old version Boot Camp that make the partition ready. After that Brigadier gave me and SSL TSL v1 error that I couldn't figure it out, but what I done is to use the Driver Pack Solution Offline that I already had in a USB disk and that solved almost everything because it doesn't install the bootcamp drivers for the mouse, but it worked for CS because I use an external mouse. THANKS!

Jay Versluis on ezcap 261 / AGPtEK / MYPIN USB3 – Game Capture Review

Sunday, 22nd March 2020

Hi Toz, it works on GoPros with a HDMI output, but due to the “quality” of this capture device, it’s just not really worth the hassle. I’ve tried this with my HERO 4, and there are two cables sticking out in opposite directions... a $30 Logitech web cam will give you the same results with less hassle and overhead.

Jay Versluis on Fixed: macOS reports incorrect disk space usage

Ah same for me, apparently the command was removed in 10.13. I wonder why they did that? I guess that's Apple: "we make the choices, NOT the users". The cron job is probably a good idea if the local backups are causing you trouble. I've just checked on my Mac Mini but I didn't have any at the moment. Only my MacBook seems to accumulate them from time to time.

unfortunately, when I enter the command tmutil disablelocal the system returns disablelocal: Unrecognized verb. this on MacOS 10.14.6 I'm thinking of setting up a cron job to run on the half hour to purge the local backups.

Thank you so much for sharing, I appreciate this. I do like TimeMachine, but every once in a while it has a hissy-fit. My favourite is the “sorry you’ll have to re-create the whole backup” message. From what I understand about the local backups, they’re enabled on laptops by default. In case you’re not on your local network, backups are made on the go, and they should all be transferred to the TimeMachine when you’re back home. Doesn’t always work of course. On desktop models this feature is disabled by default. I seem to recall that “tmutil disablelocal” will switch them off for good. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204015

The Mac utility Onyx can also perform this function. https://www.titanium-software.fr/en/index.html I really don't understand the point of TimeMachine local backups. If my local drive dies, i'm screwed. if i'm using an external Time Machine drive, why do I need TimeMachine local backups? Note well that external drives will also store their own local backups and use up that space arbitrarily. I use this command for my internal drive tmutil listlocalsnapshotdates / |grep 20|while read f; do tmutil deletelocalsnapshots $f; done And this for my external (named xternl) tmutil listlocalsnapshotdates /Volumes/xternl |grep 20|while read f; do tmutil deletelocalsnapshots $f; done

I believe the Brigadier drivers access the Apple servers, but the difference is that you can try a slight later version of what Apple offer. Plus it’s easy to download using Brigadier, I had a hard time finding the latest available package on the Apple site. If you don’t specify the version, Brigadier will download what was intended for your model. Try installing that package in compatibility mode and see it that works - it did the trick for me.

Hello Jay, I had the same problem of tudorf2000. My MBP version is 8,2 and I can't install AMD graphics driver and the sound card doesn`t works. Are some difference installing drivers with brigardiers or with download drivers (Bootcamp download manager)? Tks!

Jay Versluis on MAHDI M9 Plus – MP3 player Review

Saturday, 11th January 2020

That's priceless! I agree, the Shuffle was well designed. It goes to show that it's worth keeping old operating systems around, just so that we can talk to the old gadgets.

You're very welcome! I've made a video about how to do it recently, I just added it to the article.

I still have my Apple iPod shuffle 1st Generation, I think that was the pinnacle of MP3 player design. Even though it has been through the washing machine and dryer, it still works. Had to plug it into a MacOS 10.6 to reset some parameters that had become corrupted. Otherwise, flawless...

I went directly to Win 10 (Pro) and installed the drivers in compatibility mode (they were intended for 7 I guess).

Hi Tudorf, although I managed to download the latest version of the Bootcamp drivers, as soon as I tried installing them it wouldn't let me, telling me that this version was not made for my hardware. So I went back to the (original made for my hardware) 8.1 version of the drivers, and thankfully they’re still working OK on Windows 10, including Audio. It’s a very different user experience and not anywhere near as good as macOS is in regards to trackpad responsiveness. Especially the right-click is cumbersome, but every bit of the hardware works fine (except for screen brightness as I said in t he article). Hope this helps, and good luck!

hi there, I have a mbp 13' late 2011 and also tried installing win 10 without bootcamp and i have one problem and that would be the sound that is not working. I've installed win 10 dirrectly withoud upgrading from win 7 and installed the drivers for macbookpro 8,1 but the audio drivers don't seem to work. In your article you specify that you tried to download bootcamp 5.1.57XX but apple didn''t let you. Did you download that version and installed it or the version for your macbook 8,1?

I'm glad to hear it! New doesn't always mean "better" with Apple, it usually means "making sure you spend more money" ☺️
