CTRL-ALT- DEL option on a Mac?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have an external HDD which contains server 2019 on it. When I hook it up to my macbook pro 2010 PC, I cant get paste the option of ALT-CTRL-DEL cause the keyboard doesnt have a   DEL key. How do I bypass this so I can have access to Server 2019 plz?

 

I appreciate any help given. Hopefully, I will get some responses on this PLZ.

 

TIA

Nick,

 

I have Server on external HDD. It is either 1 OS or the other when I boot up so how would I use Virtual keyboard to enter command. Plz remember I am new to MAC.

Does Microsoft Server not include the virtual keyboard under the ease of access options?

If you're running this virtualised, consult the instructions for the virtualisation platform you're using - you have not mentioned this in your post.

 

If you're running it on hardware some how CTRL-ALT-fn-Delete might work.

Are you running this in some from of software? Parallels?

 

The CRT+ALT+DEL action should be on the toolbar I thought.

When I plug in my external HHD, I press the alt-cmd keys, it brings up 2 OS's one for DOS and the other EFI (windows) I choose EFI. I get it to the point of ALT-CNTL-DEL option for server. I press a number of keys to try to enter it but none work (including combos mentioned here). I tried plugging ina usb american keyboard and that dont work either. I have googled combination keys to try to no avail. Any other ideas what is going on or something I may have missed?

 

TYVM for all the help. It is muchly appreciated. :)

The delete key does exist. Im surprised no one but margarve could answer this and some of them are judging your "googling" skills 🤦‍♂️

FN + Backspace = DELETE
