I have a 1 TB SSD in a 2020 13" MacBook Pro but I don't know what kind of SSD it is.

Thanks Ron,

Well, I have a few more moving parts that must be considered.

For now, I'll just say one issue is that yahoo's smtp server is now in singapore....106.10.248.80 while their email server is still in the US as far as I can research. Your mileage may vary.

imho google sucks and as Forrest Gump says...."and that's all I got to say about that."

If you go to Apple icon, click About This Mac, then click System Report button, on the left under Hardware they will list NVME Express, SATA, etc. Click one of those and it will tell you what type of drive, and all the details...

That is the list in Big Sur and Catalina at least.

It is a 1 TB NVMExpress drive but I don't see any information listed in the details that would help me answer the poll question?

NVME drives for a laptop would almost always be in the M.2 form factor, unless Apple has a proprietary one, which is certainly possible...

VMware Guide: Run Mac OS X on Windows 10



This blog is about the VMware Guide: Run Mac OS X on Windows 10. I will try my best so that you understand this guide very well. I hope you all like this blog VMware Guide: Run Mac OS X on Windows 10. If your answer is yes then please do share.

The VMware Guide: Run Mac OS X on Windows 10VMware Unlocker is a program that allows you to install Mac OS X on any computer that uses VMWare or VirtualBox to create a Hackintosh. If you want to play with Mac OS X but don’t want to pay a premium for the hardware, this is the way to go. You can install and use Mac OS X on many Intel computers and experiment as you like. This tutorial will walk you through how to run Mac OS X on Windows 10 with VMware Unlocker.

A Hackintosh is the popular term for installing Mac OS X on a non-Apple device such as a normal PC. The operating system will work much the same as on an Apple but in a virtual machine. As long as you follow these instructions exactly, you shouldn’t notice any difference in usability and utility between a real Mac and a Hackintosh.

You will need an Intel computer running Windows 10. You will need virtualization enabled in your UEFI / BIOS, a copy of VMware Unlocker, 7-Zip, and Mac OS X for VMware. There are many sources of Mac OS X and I only link one. If you want to use a different one, as long as it is compatible with VMware and Hackintosh configurations, you’re fine. This version of Mac OS X is Yosemite and comes with VMware OS X files for use with VMware Unlocker.



back to menu ?Set everything upIf you have an Intel PC and downloaded the above files, we can get started. Mac OS X’s download is around 6GB so if you haven’t gotten it already, you might want to start the download ahead of time.

Once you’re ready, it’s time to get started.

Restart your computer and load it into UEFI / BIOS. Press Delete when your keyboard turns on to access it.Navigate to where virtualization is in your BIOS and enable it. Different manufacturers put it in different places, so explore to find yours.Boot into Windows once activated.Install VMware Workstation from here.Install 7-Zip or another free archive tool if you don’t already have it.Download VMware Unlocker, extract it somewhere and install it. It will fix VMware Workstation in order to load Mac OS X.Open your Mac OS X folder and run both win-install.cmd and win-update-tools.cmd as administrator.Open VMware Workstation and select Open Virtual Machine.Select the Mac OS X VMX file you downloaded and open it.Select Change virtual machine settings in VMware Workstation.Select Options and Version and set it to Mac OS X 10.7.Change any other options that suit you like memory, disk space, etc.Select Power and Start Up Guest when you’re ready.Follow the Mac OS X installation wizard that will appear. It takes a few minutes but it’s fine.Return to VMware Workstation and select Settings.Navigate to the CD / DVD and navigate to the darwin.iso file from the Mac OS X folder you downloaded.Check the box next to Connected at the top.Switch back to Mac OS X and you should see a pop-up window for VMware Tools. If you don’t, restart the VM.Install VMware Tools when prompted and restart again.Return to VMware Workstation and select Settings.Navigate to the CD / DVD and locate the BeamOff.iso file from the Mac OS X folder.In Mac OS X, go to System Preferences and Users & Groups.Select your account, then the connection items.Select the small “+” icon on the left and select BeamOff.Restart if prompted.

Your Hackintosh should now be fully functional. Depending on the file downloaded as a Mac OS X source, you may be running Yosemite or El Capitan. If this article has been published for a while, it may be something else entirely. If OS X prompts you for updates, it’s safe to do so. When I installed Mac OS X using this method, I was prompted to upgrade to El Capitan. It took a little while but it installed and worked without any issues.

BeamOff is optional and primarily works to improve website performance. If you’re using a high-end PC, you might not need to install it, but if you notice any slowdowns in your Hackintosh’s performance, install it and see if that makes a difference.

This method is not entirely legal, so you should use your own judgment as to whether or not you want to create your own Hackintosh. Bollyinsidedoes not recommend or condone it, but the knowledge is free for everyone and if you want to do it you might as well do it.

How to Install a Software Program From an ISO File

How you install a program from an ISO image will vary depending on which version of Windows you are using. Here’s how to install a program in Windows 10, 8.1, and 7.

An ISO file, also known as an ISO image, is a file that contains all the installation files for a single program. Certain software programs, especially large ones, are sometimes made available as ISO files, including Microsoft Office and the Windows operating system. How you install an application from its ISO file will depend on the version of Windows you’re running.

In Windows 10 or 8.1, you can mount the ISO file as a virtual drive and install the software from there. If you’re still running Windows 7 ( you shouldn't be), you will need to download a utility that can mount the ISO file for you. You can also burn the ISO file to a disc or copy it to a USB drive and install it from the CD or drive. If you download Windows 10 as an ISO file, you will need to burn it to a bootable DVD or copy it to a bootable USB drive to install it on your target computer. Here is how to install an ISO image in Windows.

Mount the ISO File in Windows 10 or 8.1Download the ISO file, then open File Explorer and right-click on the file. From the pop-up menu, select the Mount command.

Sometimes a third-party program can disable the built-in Mount command so it doesn’t appear in the menu. If so, you’ll need to reset your default program to bring the command back. In Windows 10, go to Settings > Apps > Default Apps and scroll to the bottom of the page. Click the Set defaults by app link. From the list of apps, click the one for Windows Disc Image Burner and click Manage.

This 7-screen laptop might just be the most ridiculous invention ever

creativebloq.com

Expanscape's recently revealed Aurora 7 prototype features not one, not two, not three (we'll skip forward a bit), but seven displays. Each screen folds out from an enormous black box to create possibly the most ridiculous, not to mention delicate-looking, gadget we've ever seen. We have a feeling it would be easier to use one of our best ultra-wide monitors on your lap (don't try that, by the way).
