We think HoloLens is going to push even more for AR. As such, we as pioneers in this area, are following closely the developments of HoloLens. One of the requirements to follow and develop for this product is to have Windows 10, as it’s based on it. Well here it is!

Installation

There’s not much into it, just follow the instructions and that’s it! We did our homework and read this article about the specifics, but -in short-, we didn’t have to be that careful. In our case, the Windows personality of our MacBook Pro is not the main one, so whatever happens to it, it’s alright.

DriversWe do have to say that Windows 8 was previously installed on the Mac (via BootCamp) and working perfectly before we dare to install Windows 10. To install Windows 8 on a Mac, we followed this article. That meant that our video drivers and the rest were working properly. And of course, all patches and services packs were applied and installed.

After that, is when we decided to experiment with Windows 10. And that’s the keyword here: Experiment. As it is, Windows 10 is an experiment, install it at your own risk. Needless to say, we do not recommend to install Windows 10 on a working PC need for … work. Proceed with caution, and any problems with it, don’t blame us! 🙂
