Windows 10 ‘1511’ November Update Causes BootCamp Problems

There are many problems caused by the most recent Windows 10 ‘1511’ November Update, but there are also quite a few great improvements, as well, such as the new ‘Find my Device‘ feature, Skype integration and more.

Today we’re talking about another annoying problem related to the Windows 10 Threshold 2 update, which is apparently affecting BootCamp users. Here’s what one affected user has been saying:

After carrying out the new Windows 10 November Update on my mid 2012 15″ rMBP networking doesn’t work. I have tried redownloading the BootCamp setup package on El Capitan but there is some problem when carrying out the install option in Windows and my Macbook is left cut off from the internet. I get the feeling that Microsoft might have changed some build identifier or something so Apple’s packages decide that the OS is wrong?

Most likely, the reason for this could be the fact that Apple didn’t yet fully updated its drivers to incorporate with the Windows 10 new build. Somebody else is saying he has been experiencing similar problems on an iMac:

Had the same problem with my iMac 2012. After installing Threshold as an update, my iMac couldn’t boot after the first of several necessary reboots with this update. Even Windows couldn’t fix the problems, so beware of this update, but maybe related to my “older” iMac. And no, a new install with the Threshold DVD had the same boot problem.

Another MacBook Pro owner said he made a dualboot with windows and upgraded his Windows 10 to the latest release (TH2/10586.3/1511) and he encountered the following problems after that:

Mail: Can’t sync accounts, can’t change the settings of the accounts or delete them. Every time I try to click on an account to change it’s settings, nothing happens.
Secondary display: Each time my computer boots up, the secondary display starts in B/W mode. To fix it, I have to disconnect the secondary display, connect it again, and then launch AMD Catalyst Control Center (I have an AMD 6750M graphic card) to get colours on my screen again.
Parallels Bootcamp: Earlier, I used to be able to boot into my Windows 10 partition using Parallels. With the new upgrade, I no longer have internet access if I try to run my Windows 10 partition from inside OS X. The “Parallels Ethernet Adapter” is now missing from the Network Adapters list under Device Manager and I can’t seem to get it back (reinstalling Parallel tools doesn’t help). No solution on Parallel forums yet either.

What about you, have you been affected by the most recent Windows 10 build when you are trying to use BootCamp? Leave your input below and let us know.
