Display extended when using Boot Camp


I need MS Access for some time and will (need to but don't want to) install Boot Camp on my Mac Book Air from mid-2012.

Because it's only a 13 "screen on my Air, I'm hoping to connect it to the screen on my iMac 27" end of 2013 with a Thunderbolt cable.

This will still work when I run Windows, please?

Thank you.


Yes it will support multiple display in windows

But if you don't have access while you can with just install windows on a machine virtual it's easier and you don't have to worry about drivers and getting data to and from osx to windows and switching between them is instant

the only 2 reasons you need bootcamp is

1. If you don't have much memory because when the virtual machine is running it and osx share memory between them.

2 If you need to run the fancy or 3d modeling 3d games as a virtual machine is not video card drivers using it does not activate the video cards to use 3d features.

At the end of the installation, a message appears with the following text "Windows could not update the configuration to start the computer. Installation cannot continue.

    When I got the error, I cancelled and restarted the machine. I pressed the 'option' button when starting upwards and he grew the boot partitions. You should see a 'EFI Boot' partition. Choose that and you restart the installation process, but this time it works.

    Supposedly the boot EFI and WinInstall partition should do the same thing. Manually, select one or the other.

  • Creating cloud apps on Windows (using Boot Camp on a Macbook) has stopped working

    So here's the situation:

    I've been subscribing to creative cloud (CC) for a few years now and I have the 'apps' installed on Windows (using Boot Camp on my Macbook Pro). Why is it I am running Windows on a Mac? Because for various reasons I ;-)

    A few months ago, I cancelled the subscription but decided to begin to subscribe again. That's when the problems started. Premiere Pro (which is the program I use most often) started to ask forlicensi ng/registration and registration from cc. whenever I started PP I to connect to CC with the result "Thank you for licensing/save...". "or something like that. The other day, I was in a meeting with a client to review changes in a project of PP and suddenly it does not help to to connect to CC. I am stuck in a loop where it says "thank you for the record...". "and then nothing happens. When I click on PP I sign again and so on...

    I called Adobe support and when I told them I'm using Boot Camp on a Mac the first guy said ' it is not supposed to work on Boot Camp or virtual machines and if it works it is probably due to a bug in the software '.

    I google a bit on this subject and can't find anything about supposed to CC to work with Boot Camp. When I was persistent and told them that they really help me because I'm in a hurry and that the customer is frustrated he actually hung. I called support again and this operator says 'We have no instructions on how to help users with problems in Boot Camp'.

    I tried PP uninstall and reinstall, but still get stuck in the Sign-in-loop. Could this something in the registry that I need to change or remove?

    I installed PP on my Mac OS without any problem. The thing is that I guess I can't open old projects created on the installation of Windows of PP.

    Any help on this would be much apprechiated.

    / Thomas

    Looks like the Support of Adobe has solved the problem. I called the third time and this operator is out of the box.

    I had to delete some folders (PCB Adobe, Cache SL, SL Store), and then start any application as administrator (Windows) and log in.

  • Cannot start to OSX after using boot camp

    Hey everybody

    I have a Macbook pro 13' (2015) with display of keratina, 2.7 i5, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB Flash storage.

    The problem started when I decided to run the boot camp on the device, everything went well until the installation of boot camp on windows 10. The installer got stuck in the process, so I left it. Then I went to the OSXRESERVED partition and I found the boot camp folder but when I tried to open it to re-run the installation program, I got an error message saying that the file cannot be opened and its corrupt. Then I formatted this partition using windows (how stupid on my part). And now I can not start back to OSX.

    I tried to go to the recovery of the Internet then disk utility. I see that the partition I made for windows that is only 40 GB. And there's "virtual whole disk", which is written in red. When I click on check, he said that the drive should be repaired, when I clicked on the repair. The same warning showed once again that the disc must be repaired.

    Also I tried to restore using time machine backup, but as I mentioned it won't give me access to the other partition is the 80 GB one. Instead, it shows only the 40 GB one and its not enough storage to restore the backup with.

    Sorry I took so long and I appreciate everyone's help, thank you.

    Hi Tayar98,

    Please visit Apple support communities. Congratulations on your new MacBook Pro!

    It seems that you cannot boot to OS X or restore from a backup Time Machine after that a partition has been formatted using Windows install.

    You should maybe erase and repartition your hard drive MacBook Pro before restoring from Time Machine backup. You can use the procedure described in disk utility (El Capitan): partitioning a physical disk:

    Erase and repartition a device

    You can delete all volumes on a device and create new ones. For example, if you want to change the plan of partition of a USB key, lightning or other storage of Master Boot Record Partition GUID carte device. If you just want to delete a volume, see to delete a volume.

    WARNING: Deleting and partitioning device destroys all data on all volumes of the device.

    1. Select the device in the sidebar you want to erase and re-partition, then click the Erase button .

      Note: You cannot erase the device that contains your boot volume.

    2. Enter a name for the original volume.

    3. Click the context menu of the card, and then choose a format for the initial score.

      For MS-DOS, and ExFAT partitions, the name must be 11 characters or less.

      • Map of Partition GUID: Used for all Mac computers with Intel processor.

      • Master Boot Record: Used for partitions Windows will be formatted under MS-DOS (FAT) or ExFAT.

      • Apple Partition map: Used for compatibility with Mac computers with PowerPC processor.

    4. Click clear, and then click done.

    Best regards.

  • MacBook Air (early 2014) El Capitan impossible to install Windows using Boot Camp Assistant 10

    The ISO image has been downloaded from Microsoft.

    I was using a 8 GB USB (although not a brand new, but erased and formatted by disk utility).

    When the State of the task of the Assistant Boot Camp completed "Windows Backup Software Support", Mac restarted.

    As we see from the videos of YouTube, the Mac should start in a configuration of Windows but my screen as usual!

    Still, he resumed the partition (in my case 40GB) but it is empty!

  • Failure of repartitioning after using Boot Camp to uninstall Windows

    Hey there,

    I am running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 on my MBP 15 "retina.

    I got 10 Windows installed on my device and I decided to uninstall it through the Boot Camp Assistant, but suddenly had an error that repartitioning could be done and the process has failed.

    Now please help me to solve this problem and remove this Windows partition so I can have a single partition and more free space.

  • With parallel should I still need to use boot camp to install windows 7?


    For example if my mac pro laptop computer requires to install the Windows 7 operating system and I have a parallel software do I need to install via boot camp?

    No, Boot Camp is not necessary to install Windows 7 in Parallels. Parallels installs Windows 7 by starting in the virtual machine.

    You will need to launch Parallels in OS X, use the construction in the wizard to create a new virtual machine for Windows 7 and configure it with enough disk space and memory to run it inside of OS X.

    How to install Windows 7 in OS X using Parallels Desktop
