Infocom adventures

Back when I used all my time by my Commodore 64 ( in the 80’s) I played alot of Infocom games. Zork I + II + III and some detective adventures. I missed them. I do have them all on 3.5″ disks, but do I have a 3.5″ drive? Nooo. But I just found a whole bunch of the old games in the Apple store. Activision made an app with Zork I and then you can buy additional games.

Windows 10 on MacBook Pro

So, I found something called Boot Camp-supportsoftware 5.1.5621 on the Apple website. Fancy that, you install a whole package of drivers, including network drivers and everythings is fine. Sound is working, keyboard is working, mousepad is fine. I now have a perfect working Windows 10 on my Mac. Awesome.

Windows 10 on Macbook Pro

Finally, it happened. I got Windows on my Macbook Pro.

I am really not a big fan, or user, of the Mac OS X operating system, but the machine is nice. So why not have Windows on it. I have tried many times to go through the BootCamp wizard, but always failed in disk partitioning. Today I made the effort to Google it :-) Turns out, I had to run “chkdsk” on the drive.

What you do is press Command – S during startup, you log on as usual, and the OS enters a root commandline interface. Here you type “/sbin/fsck -fy” and when it is finished checking your drive, you type “reboot” to return to Mac OS X. Then I made it through the wizard. Windows 10 is now installed. I had to manually install the Broadcom 802.11ac Network adapter. Although the sound driver seems installed, there are no sound. Minor issue. Preview 10130 is installing and I look forward to enjoy my Windows 10 preview in 2880 * 1800 resolution. :-)
