    "Free" Product Key on Mac Boot Camp


    I have been using my MacBook for a while and I decided to install Windows 10, via Bootcamp, just to see what it was like. Once I was done, I knew, because I never gave it a product key, that I would be limited on my features in things, like getting rid of a watermark or customizing my view. I was planning to get a product key, later, but I wanted to see if it was worth it. However, after using it for a couple of days, I noticed I could use it like any other PC, without annoying watermarks covering my view. So, I went into settings and saw that my PC is activated with a license that is linked to my account. Then, I check the properties of "This PC" in File Explorer and it showed a product key and that Windows 10 was activated.


    I'm wondering why Windows 10 is activated and I have a product key, even though I never gave it a product key once in this mac's life. So, is Microsoft giving me a free product key with my account or did my Mac come with a free product key built-in?

    :)

  2. Bluetooth is not working with Boot Camp after upgrading to Windows 10

    Hi,

    To enable your Bluetooth, run the Boot Camp Assistant from the Utilities folder on your Mac and install the support software, which includes the latest drivers you need for Bluetooth.


    • Check for software updates to make sure OS X, your Mac firmware, and Boot Camp Assistant are
      up to date.

    • Run Boot Camp Assistant and install the support software, which includes the latest Boot Camp drivers you need for Bluetooth.
      You can find step-by-step directions at Apple’s Support Site here.
    After reinstalling the drivers, all paired devices from Windows 8.1 should still be paired and usable.

  3. Mac OS boot camp

    If you are running macOS Sierra 10.12.5 or later, Windows 10 1703 or later should be sufficient.

    All you need to do is download the ISO file:

    Download Windows 10

    Press Command key + Space bar

    Type: Boot Camp

    or Open the Finder > Applications > Utilities > Boot Camp

    Launch Boot Camp

    Click Continue

    Click Browse

    Select the ISO file you just downloaded

    Resize the partition - I recommend about 40 to 50 GBs or more when dual booting with Windows. See the following article for more information about deciding on space:

    How to Install Windows 10 On Mac OS X Using Boot Camp

    Click Install

    Wait while partitions the disk

    Downloads Windows Support software

    Your Mac will automatically restart and Boot into Windows 10 setup.

    Remember to choose the partition during setup named BOOTCAMP.

    You should be good to go.

    "Free" Product Key on Mac Boot Camp

    To Boot Camp or not to Boot Camp?

    Boot Camp still works on Tiger, too. My sister's Mac is still on Tiger, and it still boots to XP when she wants it to. You just can't download it anymore, so you have to already have it. I think it just doesn't update Boot Camp or the drivers anymore, but why fix it if it ain't broke? lol.
