I finally installed bootcamp on my MBP. Who would have thought it would be such a pain in the ass? I wanted to have Windows 7 installed on my 2nd 750GB HDD as there's lots of space as opposed to my main disk, which is a 250GB SSD. But installing bootcamp without superdrive isn't a default option on MBP, but it is on MBA. I spent maybe two working days figuring it out. It wouldn't even boot Windows from superdrive plugged in via USB. The way I finally managed to do it was to install a virtual machine in OS X and format the bootcamp partition to NTFS via Windows installer. Then I cancelled the installation and instead copied the Win7 installation disk into the bootcamp partition. Then I had to install rEFIt, in order to be able to force booting from the uninstalled Windows partition and was finally able to install Windows.
And after Windows was successfully installed, the endless updates came flooding in, requiring several restarts.
I got intermittent no wake-up after lid closed when I installed rEFInd (successor to rEFIt) on my new MBP. Is yours resuming ok?
Sorry, I haven't been to this thread in quite a while. Wake-up in Windows or OS X? I don't have any problems with wake-up in either, I have the high-end 15' inch early-2011 MBP. Maybe it's related to newer machines, do you have a rMBP? The only problem I have is that I can't get screen brightness to work in Windows. The buttons show the brightness indicator increasing/decreasing but the actual brightness of the display doesn't change.
Let's revive this thread shall we?
Anybody else excited for Yosemite? I think it's the best release since Snow Leopard.
I'm running the Developer GM they released today and it's running awesome. The last little issues I had with the last beta are pretty much gone and it feels faster to use than Mavericks.
No, it has nothing to do with if it's a desktop or laptop. The sleep option just disappeared with some new version of some Intel chip. I think I noticed it first when my mother bought a new 2013(?) Macbook Air. It was the first generation to get stupid good battery life. My 2011 iMac has the sleep setting, as does the 2012 Mini I have plugged in to my TV.I wouldn't be suprised if the sleep option is only available on laptops, and not on the desktops.
Because, why would you ever put your desktop in sleep.
