Howto write NTFS partition from OS X

April 1st, 2007 2 comments

In january, I wrote a post on MacFuse/writing NTFS partitions from OS X.
I promised to post a tutorial, so here it is:

So you have installed Windows/Vista via Bootcamp or any other method.
And now you want to write files from your OS X install to your Vista/Windows partition.

First you need to download and install those two softwares:

MacFUSE Tools: 0.2.2-r1
: 1.328

Next unmount the ntfs partition with Diskutil.
Click the info button to get the disk identifier: disk0s3 for instance
Open Terminal and execute the following commands:

sudo ln -s /System/Library/Filesystems/fusefs.fs/mount_fusefs /usr/bin/mount_fusefs
mkdir /Volumes/Vista
sudo /usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g /dev/disk0s2 /Volumes/

Bootcamp 1.2 drivers: Where is the AltGr key?

April 1st, 2007 2 comments

Where the f… is the AltGr key? Ah ok, just press ctrl + alt keys.
Parallels keyboard mappings are much better than Bootcamp IMHO.

It would be great if we could customize those keyboard’s mappings.
Apple do you hear my call?
