Listening to Soundtracks and Installing Windows on a Mac

Soundtracks are a beautiful thing. If you ever need to clear your mind at the end of the day or just focus on a task you're trying to complete, they're required listening. I'm currently listening to the Inuyasha (犬夜叉 音楽篇) Soundtrack, as per Amazon search. Non-affiliate link.

Why am I listening to calming music you might ask? Well, I'm installing Windows 10 on a Mac for the first time, so that's probably it.

Now, the Boot Camp Assistant, I've heard, works pretty well. Right now I see this:

I'm going to let this run its course, grab some dinner, and I'll update the post later on.

Wish me luck.


Taking longer than expected, painless so far, hopefully the computer works in the morning.

Second update:

All is done and the computer seems to be working fine. I did notice the reboot time to MacOS seemed to have gotten a bit longer but I could be imagining things.

Here's a few pictures of what I saw during the process:

This is the actual installation starting after Boot Camp completed the disk rework.

This is what a 5K monitor looks like before installing proper video drivers to scale down the high DPI. It's horrible.

Once that was done, everything else seems to be working. I haven't spent much time configuring setting in Windows yet but the wireless mouse and keyboard are doing fine and it ran well on the machine, as expected. That partition will be dedicated to games and any other programs that might not be compatible with MacOS.

One tip to all of this, take your time and find a good seller for Windows; I had planned to go straight through Microsoft but the OS is quite costly through them. Instead, I purchased my activation code from Play-Asia, I won't directly link them as I have no affiliation with them but I encourage you to do your due diligence before plopping down your hard-earned cash.
