Using VirtualBox to use a BootCamp Windows 8.1 Partition on Mac OS X Yosemite

I’ve been trying to get to the point where I can use my bootcamp partition from within Mac OS X Yosemite, (like you can do with VMWare Fusion or Parallels 10).


Windows 8 / Macbook 2009 Lion mouse trackpad reversal

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

If you’ve got used to Mac OS X Lions reversal of the trackpad and you’ve just installed Windows 8 on your macbook, scrolling becomes a bit confusing.

Simple fix.

Open up a regedit (WinKey-R / cmdKey-R)

Do a search for FlipFlopHScroll or FlipFlopWheel, change both values to a 1 instead of a 0 and reboot.

Keep doing that Find until you’ve caught all the values.

Once you’ve booted, windows scrolling will act like the default trackpad settings for Lion. 😀

Macbooks/Windows 8 and the freeze issue….

Latest update, I think we have a fix.

Bottom left corner click, start a Command Prompt as Administrator

Then type:

bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes

and that should be it….
