Updating boot camp mac
Apple today released an update to Boot Camp with support for Microsoft Windows 10, according to a new support document.
The update, Boot Camp 6, is still propagating and is not yet available for OS X.
However, several forum members have noted the update is available within Windows partitions in Boot Camp, Apple's tool to allow Intel Mac owners to dual boot OS X and Windows.
Boot Camp 6 also includes support for several Mac features within Windows 10, including USB 3, USB-C, Thunderbolt, built-in SD and SDXC card slots, built-in or external Apple Super Drives, and the Apple keyboard, mouse and trackpad.
Windows 10 support is only available on select Macs with OS X Yosemite and the latest version of Boot Camp, which will automatically download the support software (drivers) needed to use Windows 10 on a Mac.
Boot Camp requires an authentic copy of Windows 10 for a new installation, which can be purchased from Microsoft in an ISO file or USB stick for 9.
Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users can upgrade to Windows 10 for free from within their Windows partition as long as the user's software is completely up to date.
So I'm wondering if it's okay to run all of the Windows updates as they appear, if I have to avoid some of them, or if I have to wait until Apple releases a patch which would permit the updates to be installed without any adverse effects.Here is the series of events that occurred as I remember them: For practical purposes, when you boot into your Boot Camp partition you are on a regular PC: All updates pushed thru Windows Update should work as expected.I have used Boot Camp since the beta period all the way to Snow Leopard and I have never experienced a situation like the one you describe.I believe that Windows Update will only push updates that are critical (like security updates) and everything else (like driver updates) is listed as optional.I recommend enabling the option that makes Windows Update prompt you whether or not it should install updates when available.
