Windows 10 on late 2009 iMac

2

When installed Windows 10 via Bootcamp on my late 2009 model iMac, I wasn’t able to install the Bootcamp drivers. Apple had hard-coded some versions and they rather sell you new hardware than supporting the older hardware. Since my late 2009 iMac is upgraded with memory and SSD, the 27″ monster is still fast enough for day-time use. But when installing Bootcamp drivers, this error appears:

This version of boot camp is not intended for this computer model

The fix is simple. After downloading the Bootcamp (v5.1) drivers via OSX, boot to Windows. Start an elevated command box and navigate to the path of your drivers. Copy the files from the USB disk over to your harddisk. In my case the path was: Downloads\bootcamp5.1.5769\BootCamp\Drivers\Apple.

Manually run: “msiexec /i bootcamp.msi” from there. The new Bootcamp drivers will be installed and yes, you Magic Mouse scroll-funtion will work again.

Airport 6.1 update breaks IPv6

…or not. Apple released the v6.1 update for the Airport devices including Time Machine. Unfortunately this update ‘breaks’ IPv6 is you were using an Ipv6 tunnel via HE’s tunnelbroker.net. The fix is simple. Log in to both your Airport and the tunnelbroker.net website. On the last one you should look for your ‘Routed /64’ address. Fill this address in the ‘IPv6 Delegated Prefix’ field of your Apple Airport and IPv6 is back as before.

Japanese keyboard lay-out with Remote Desktop

0

So, you’re the lucky owner of a Mac. But since Windows is a necessarily evil in corporate environments every now and then you need to create a remote desktop connection. If only to run Windows programs on a Terminal Server Remote Desktop Server. And then – with some Apple keyboard – these are set to Japanese (Korean / Chinese) settings.

I was struggling with this. First I thought the cause of the problem where in the Office Profiling Tools but they weren’t. Some users had problems, others didn’t. The fix was adding a registry entry to force a US keyboard lay-out.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
 "IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout"=dword:00000001
