Apple dropped support of Windows 8 in macOS Sierra?

So I upgraded my MacBook to macOS Sierra and I noticed something different in the BootCamp Assistant.

As the official macOS page Sierra said, the new BootCamp installations require Windows 8 and 10.

But when I opened the BootCamp Assistant, he made only 10 Windows or USB later.

So what is the significance of this? Fall of Apple already supported for Windows 8?

W8.1 must always be supported. If you point to W8.1 ISO, you get error messages?

  • Make a bootable Windows 7 on macOS Sierra drive

    I recently tried to create a bootable USB to install windows 7 on my MacBook Air running Mac OS.

    I tried to use unetbootin to a player from the ISO file I have. Worked well, but I got a message at the end saying that the disc I created will not be able to boot on a mac. As said the program, when I tried to start up the USB, it wasn't there. I heard somewhere that you cannot start a windows on Mac OS installation disc up. Is there a workaround or a solution to this problem?

    (btw I can't use Boot Camp because now it only supports Windows 10 and more)

    Thank you very much

    Nick

    You cannot start a Mac with Windows without Boot Camp. You can create a Windows 7 virtual machine using VirtualBox (free), VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop.

  • Apple iPhone 4S for windows 8.1 usb driver

    Apple iPhone 4S no usb driver for windows 8.1

    Hello syap_pop,

    It seems that you have the driver installed on Windows 8.1 for iOS devices. Use this section of the following article:

    If iTunes does not recognize your iPhone, iPad, or iPod

    You do not see the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver

    1. Disconnect your device from your computer.
    2. Save a screenshot by pressing the Home button and sleep/wake button of the device button at the same time. The screen should Flash briefly.
    3. Reconnect your device to your computer.
    4. If you see one of these sections in the Device Manager, expand them:
      • Imaging devices
      • Other devices
      • Portable devices
      • USB Bus controllers

    Now, locate the entry that recognizes the device as a camera. You should see 'Apple IPhone', 'Apple iPad' or 'Apple iPod '. Right-click the device entry, and then manually update the Apple Mobile Device USB driver.

    If a single unknown device appears, follow these steps:

    1. Right click on the unknown device entry.
    2. Choose Properties from the context menu, and then click the Details tab.
    3. In the drop-down menu, select hardware IDS.
    4. If the ID begins with something other than USB\VID_0000 & PID_0000, go into the Device Manager and right click on the entry for device unknown, and then manually update the Apple Mobile Device USB driver.
    5. If the ID begins with USB\VID_0000 & PID_0000, then follow the remaining steps.
    6. Unplug the unit and remove all the USB devices on the computer.
    7. Shut down the computer, and then turn it back on.
    8. Reconnect the device, tests of each USB port for about 30 seconds to see if the device is recognized.
    9. Test with a different, checked 30-pins-USB or the lightning-connector-cable-USB, if they are available.

    If you still need help, contact Apple technical support.

  • Drag and drop support with the VM mountain lion

    Hi all

    I recently got a new macbook pro (with retina display and the 16 GB and of course the SSD - very soft). I created a machine virtual windows 7 for my windows applications and I also wanted a separate VM to develop on with Mountain Lion, so I downloaded the Cougar from the app store and created an image of mountain lion. My only problem is that it doesn't seem to be any support for drag and drop between my host mountain lion and my mountain lion guest VM. If I try to drag and drop with my windows 7 VM, it works well, but not mountain Lion mountain lion.

    Does anyone know if there are a few settings that I can turn it on or if it is supposed to work? Furthermore, I am under Fusion 5.0.3 and am on MacOS 10.8.3 (on my host and the guest operating system).

    Thank you

    -Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    Yes it is a limitation having Mac OS X as a guest operating system. There are some other limitations as well as

    • SVGA only.  No chart 2D or 3D accelerated.
    • No unit.
    • No fullscreen multimon support.
    • No USB 3.0 support.

  • Apple Watch automatic unlocking on MacOS Sierra

    I use an iMac of 2014 with MacOS Sierra, a 5 iPhone with iOS 10.0.1 and a Apple Watch with watch 3 installed OS. I also have a password on my watch, authentication both active and running as well surrender. I don't know why, but the icon to activate the unlock with the Apple Watch is not shown on my iMac.

    In addition, when you enable two-factor authentication, I've changed my iCloud password but not my unblock, I think. I'm not sure, something strange.

  • Boot Camp supports only Windows 7 or later installation on that platform. Please use a file ISO of Windows 7 or later installation.

    Hello

    I tried to fix this for hours, I hope someone can help me.

    I downloaded the ISO "Win10_1607_English_x64.iso" (4.29 GB) file and with him came a "info.plist" (2 KB), so they are both on my 64 GB USB Drive (format: MS-DOS (FAT32)) called 'WINSTALL '.

    I have the ISO on the USB key, and it is selected as the ISO image in Boot Camp. I also have the USB the disk of destination selected, and yet I get this error:

    Your bootable USB key could not be created

    Boot Camp supports only Windows 7 or later installation on that platform. Please use a file ISO of Windows 7 or later installation.

    I'm currently under OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6 on my iMac (21.5 inch, end 2012) that is compatible with Windows 10.

    If anyone can help me I honestly love so much, I tried contacting Apple Support staff by phone, they said that they can't do anything, I tried to contact their Live Chat, but none of this has helped to solve the problem, and I tried to look online, but can't find too much.

    Thanks in advance for any answer!

    What OSX Version do you have? This site gives the requirements of Bootcamp: minimum system requirements to install Windows on your Mac with Boot Camp - Apple Support. And you did an upgrade? Could it be that the upgrade will not correctly for the OS?

    Looking at the 10 Windows version you downloaded, is the update of birthday, which was released less than a month ago. It could be that Apple is not reconisgin the Windows version when reading the disk, because it is too recent. I don't know if you have access to the download of the previous generation and do a Windows update?
