Classic Mac Pro 5,1 (also 4,1 upgraded to 5,1) features only Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.1. Here’re main reasons why you want to upgrade Wi-Fi to 802.11ac and Bluetooth to 4.0:
Problem: the latest Windows 10 update 1903 runs into BSOD (Blue screen of death) with error message WDF_VIOLATION on some mac models (MacBook Pro 2010/2011, MacBook Air 2011, Mac Mini 2012, iMac 2010/2011 and some others). This fatal failure occurs when Windows is already loaded and system tries to start Apple Boot Camp Utility (BootCamp.exe). This tool is responsible for controlling screen brightness, volume, functional keys, backlit, etc with Apple keyboard. On some machines crash happens only if you try to start our Macs Fan Control app.Continue reading
Problem: Boot Camp Control panel on Windows 10 doesn’t display macOS drive/partition which you could select to boot into.Continue reading
Classic Mac Pro 5,1 (or simply cMP, also 4,1 upgraded to 5,1) is now considered by Apple as vintage. It’s pretty disappointing considering how capable and upgradable these machines still are. Installing Windows is no longer officially supported, but it’s completely possible though not quite easy.
Another challenge is that macOS Mojave 10.14 now implies using Metal-capable GPU while most of them are not able to display Apple boot menu (which you normally see holding the Option key) required to boot into Windows. Basicaly your screen remains black until macOS is loaded. Well, some EFI bootable cards that support boot menu exist but they are released almost 10 years ago and are really outdated. What is more, none of them supports displaying of boot menu with 4k 60hz monitor connected.
This guide is for those who want macOS Mojave + Windows 10 + modern GPU (in our case Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX 580 8GB).Continue reading
For years our wonderful Macs Fan Control app has been helping thousands of people to monitor temperatures and take control over fans on Apple computers. Additional possibility of running the app under Windows (installed via Boot Camp) has always been an extra cool thing. The introduction of the new T2 security chip makes it currently impossible for the app to work under Windows (iMac Pro and MacBook Pro 2018).Continue reading
We’re looking forward to expanding our website to another languages (French, German, French, Arabic, Chinese, …).
Translating our website into another language was never easier. You just need a good text editor (like Brackets) that supports UTF-8 encoded files. Just create a new .yml file (named using ISO 639-1 code) based on en.yml in this GitHub repository. You can also optionally translate .md files of blog posts. After that simply create a pull request so we can review it.
Every translator gets life-time license for all apps, priority customer support, access to beta/alpha versions of the software and optional backlink to your website.
