The Orange Sky

The Sun settles down

With the bright orange light

To say good night.

I went back in time

Me and wife visited Metamora, Indiana today and it took us back in time. It is a historic town which is one hour drive from Cincinnati, Ohio.

Metamora, IN

Every place has a story of past, but this place lives in the past. People, buildings, nature and every objects that I see, tells me a story.

I have been here a year ago with my friend. Now, I took my wife and she liked it as well. Old people and Old places take us to a their good old memories, which is why I like them a lot.

Is there a lot of picture in this post 😀 ? We had fun and retuned home in the evening. I wanted to visit this place during winter and see how it looks :).

When Mac met Windows

It was then, when I couldn’t afford an apple computer, I used to have an app that mimics Mac Dock on my windows desktop.

And now, on my Mac, I was exploring several ways to install and use windows. I’m not a fan boy of any particular product or a company, but addicted to learn and explore the technology that inspires me.

When I got hands-on with OS X Yosemite, I was quite fascinated by its awesomely flat + Translucent look. Before my excitement settles down, Microsoft has announced its early preview version of Windows 10. So I decide to try it on Virtual Machine and here we go…

What you need.

  1. Windows 10 – Download Windows Technical Preview from preview.windows.com.
  2. A Virtual Machine software. (I’m using Parallels.)
  3. USB Drive.

Let’s see how to install windows 10 on OS X Yosemite using parallels.

Why to use USB drive ? I faced No drivers found error when installing it from hard drive. So I tried using a FAT32 USB drive (not sure if the filesytem matters) and it worked 🙂 !!.

Installation steps: (Refer the video)

  • Copy the ISO image to USB drive.
  • Open Parallels and click the + button that creates a new virtual machine.
  • Click on the ISO Image icon.
  • Drag and drop the file. It will show unknown version, but never mind, just click continue.
  • Choose windows 8.1 as its operating system.

The rest is taken care by itself which takes about 30+ minutes and you are done.

I loved the Parallels coherence mode which shows windows task bar on Mac desktop. I’m yet to explore more on OS X Yosemite and Windows Technical Preview.
