Key Command For Mac Restart Bootcamp [REPACK]

this is a great example of how far off-course apple has gone from being a smiple tool for ordinary people. Who can remember all this stuff, or even remember where to find it? How hard would it be to have option-restart bring up a list of these options with click to do it? This is worse than DOS ever was.

Key Command For Mac Restart Bootcamp

i have the same issue. If you need to get back to macOS, I've been using the old method. Choose to restart from windows, and as soon as you hear the mac boot "chime" hold down "alt" on the keyboard. There should be an option for your two boot volumes on your screen, just use the keyboard to move over to the macOS volume and press return. I'm no developer or computer engineer but i imagine it has something to do with the new Apple File System format that windows does't recognize, as it's a new volume format that only exists on beta Mac machines, vs the older file systems which have been around for a while.

I am on 10.13 (17A365) and can concur that once installing Windows 10 Pro Creators Update with Bootcamp, I also get the error when I try to restart in OS X that Boot Camp cannot locate an OS X volume. This also renders Bootcamp support with VMware Fusion 10 unusable. Upon further digging, I found that my disk0 is Bootcamp and my disk1 is Macintosh HD. It seems to me that a switch occurs for some unknown reason, or possibly that the Bootcamp partition is being installed in the same partition or disk as the EFI partition. I can successfully use the Startup Disk selection in System Preferences. I'm going to continue to tinker around and attempt to swap the disk numbers if I can.

I upgraded to high sierra from sierra via appstore on 25th. Had already got windows 10 installed on bootcamp. didnt switch to windows till today. not after starting in windows 10 cant go back to osx. Recovery option not coming , option key not showing boot option. What am i supposed to do ?

Same for me, I thought it was because it changes depending on what you os you installed last so like the right would be the last os you've installed into the partition. I'm kinda stupid and my first thought was like oh maybe it's just bootcamp needing a update to support High Sierra and the apfs but my stupid curious self decided to just oh well delete my windows partition and start over (i didn't have much besides some games and some files i didn't reallt care about). Anyways now i messed up because now it automatically boots me into windows when i open my macbook pro a1707 (2017) since i can't change it to boot into macOS from the bootcamp control panel. I hope apple updates the bootcamp asap since 10.13 isn't a beta anymore but until then i guess i'm going to delete windows again because i don't feel like holding down the option key everytime now and to answer your question my theory was wrong about it being based off the last os you install into the partition because windows was still on the left so my new theory that makes more sense is that 10.13 now boots mac hd into the right for the setting and not the left anymore, which that kind of bothering me so goodbye windows until the next update for bootcamp

Hey I am Using windows 10,installed via bootcamp in my Macbook pro with mac OS High Sierra,I am not able to enable double click by tapping on trackped as You can enable that option thru bootcamp control pannel only. Which is also not accesible.

This feature was originally developed on older Macs which had FireWire ports, but it still works today. To use it, connect two Macs via one of the mentioned cables, restart the Mac you want to use as a disk while holding down T, then open System Settings->Startup Disk on the other Mac and select the Mac running in TDM as the Startup Disk.

When you restart, the non-TDM Mac will boot over the cable into the TDM Mac's drive. A special disk icon will appear on the display of the TDM Mac. Apple has an article on how to transfer files between two Macs using Target Disk Mode. TDM is only available on Intel-based Macs.

If, for any reason you need to force-restart your Mac, you can do so by pressing the power button twice: if your Mac is already on, hold down the power button until it turns off.

Once off, press the power button again normally to restart. Hard-restarting your Mac may result in increased boot time the next time you restart as macOS will run some disk check or repair apps behind the scenes to make sure the OS is reset to a stable, bootable state.

To boot a NewWorld ROM Mac into Open Firmware while powering on, hold down Command+Option+O+F. You will be left at the Open Firmware command prompt, but must know Open Firmware commands in order to proceed.

Despite the availability of the numeric keypad keys, the MacBook keyboard does not have an Insert key. This key, by default, is known as the JAWS key in JAWS and provides access to the most important keyboard shortcuts for using this screen reader. It is also used extensively in Window Eyes. In order to get access to the Insert key in Parallels or Boot Camp, you must remap a MacBook keyboard key to the Insert key command. This can be done with Remapkey.

With these methods in mind, switching from Windows to Mac is easy and but vice versa is trivial. It would be helpful if the process was consistent for both operating systems. Apple could simply add a menu item in macOS for Boot Camp allowing users to restart to the Windows partition.

I have run into a snag, and am not sure how to resolve it. When I get to the step of selecting the bootcamp.vmdk file as the existing hard disk file to use, it gives me this error message.Failed to open the disk image file /Users/macuser/bootcamp.vmdk.

When you hold the option key during boot, you should see all drives capable of booting. If you have both an internal bootcamp partition and an external bootcamp drive, you should see both as well as the Mac OS partition. If you are not seeing the external EFI drive then it is not bootable and something is wrong with it.
