PSA: Do not clean install install Windows 10 Creators Update on a Mac. You need to install Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 1607), and then update via Windows Update. Microsoft will not fix this until the next major Windows 10 release.
PC World had what I would describe as a bizarre encounter with Microsoft this week, when asking about a new feature in Windows 10’s Anniversary Update.
Those of us that busted our rumps to get our fleets/dozens/hundreds of PCs upgraded to Windows 10 in time for July 29, may have some reason for temper at Microsoft. It turns out the deadline was mostly a myth.
Many VAIO computers for some reason, doesn’t like GPT-formatted UEFI flash drives in NTFS. Unfortunately, this is a valid Windows install drive format.
Following up on my article yesterday, and beating a dead horse, this is a reminder that the free upgrade to Windows 10 ends on July 29th. I’ll also share a couple options to lock in your rights, in case you aren’t quite ready to upgrade.
If you have anything other than a BIOS key that activates Windows 10 on one of your computers, you will want to read this. This includes Pro upgrades and/or upgrades from previous retail versions of Windows.
Looks like Microsoft has made good on giving OEMs a workaround for the TPM 2.0 requirement… at least for now.
Microsoft has said that after July 29th, it will be $129 to upgrade to Windows 10. But even if you don’t want to upgrade right now, you can still lock in Windows 10 upgrade rights for life on each machine.
Open source software doesn’t know borders. It doesn’t know friends, enemies, or frenemies. It doesn’t know if you’re an FSB agent, or an ISIS operative, or an FBI agent. It is also why you are able to use your iPhone or Android phone today.
Apple, for some reason, stops Boot Camp support early for Intel-based Macintosh computers. I frankly don’t understand it. It’s so easy to support newer Windows versions, as the burden (much like Linux) gets absorbed into the kernel.
