Bootcamp Windows 10 question

Hi all

Stumbled upon a problem, try to install Windows 10 an end 2014 27' iMac w/retina education runs Yosemite 10.10.5. Bootcamp is V 5.1.4. 32 GB, 3.5 ghz Intel I5. Disk of 1 TB of Fusion. Before you try this, I read the guide of Bootcamp to install windows, but also a number of other tutorials and forum messages about potential problems. This research, I learned that for EDU edition you must change the name of the file from Win10_1607_Education_English_x64.iso to Win10_1607_English_x64.iso. Apparently to have the former name of the file may cause OS X to not recognize the ISO. That fact I started Bootcamp, waited while the software downloaded and created a bootable USB key and partitioned my drive giving Windows 70 GB of space. After that, I got the message that my computer is restarts. Upon restarting, I got the black screen with the blue Windows logo and a spinning loading animation. After a few minutes, a blue screen with a message "Windows has encountered and error with computer and must restart," or something similar. He was pretty quick, so maybe it's not word for Word, but it was not a helpful post in terms of saying something specific. When the computer reboots, I am sent directly to OS X, though a bit slower than normal. I tried to restart with the flash drive to see if the installer would start up, no dice. Try now the Option key at startup, the flash player is not available. Went into my settings to see if I could change my startup on Win disk install USB, no luck it no more.

Now for the question: How can I get the Windows installation again? What I have to start the process, and if so, what should I use Bootcamp to delete the partition that was created? I have re-run Bootcamp and the only option that is checked is the partition and start and install/uninstall windows and delete the partition.

Thanks for the help.


Perform the following two procedures

If you use a USB drive, not a USB flash drive, you will have problems. It is recommended to use a 8-16 GB USB2 flash drive.

If the installation program is located on a USB Flash drive, stop your Mac, connect the USB key, restart and hold down the alt/option key and select the Windows icon in the USB port. This installs Windows in BIOS mode. If you click the start EFI icon, it will install using the EFI mode (faster). You may need to change the partition from MBR to GPT using GPT Fdisk.

  • BootCamp Windows 10 questions


    I have a 27 "iMac late 2015, retina - 5 k, bought a few months ago and El Capitan (OS X 10.11.5) running

    I recently bought a 10 Windows in order to create a dual boot. Of course, as I write here, it did not work.

    I tried everything I could.

    First, using the key provided with the Win10 USB I created an ISO. I placed this ISO on another USB drive and follow the instructions in using BootCamp I would get an error in this direction: BootCamp does not install, there was not enough space to create a partition. -Obviously I have a lot of space.

    Secondly, I copied the ISO on my desktop and restarted the process. Same result.

    Thirdly, I downloaded an ISO Win10 of MS, placed on the desktop and restarted the process. In this way, BootCamp has been able to create a partition and the computer restarts and you are prompted to install windows. After inputing the windows product key, I chose the "BOOTCAMP", formatted drive (to be noted that the name has changed), selected it and after hitting "Next", I get an error something like this: we could not create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see installation logs.

    Any suggestions?

    1. use the ISO downloaded from Microsoft. It should be an ISO only 64-bit. It cannot be mixed.

    2 put the ISO in the Documents folder and do not.

    3. disconnect the external storage and perform the following two procedures.

    4. run the wizard of BC and try to install Windows.

    5. Please visit for the detailed steps for your model. Your model does not use the USB for Windows installation, and does not support the creation of a Windows USB Installer. Do not change the file info.plist Bootcamp to create a workaround solution. It will cause other problems.

  • bootcamp/windows issues

    Hi all

    I gave a chance of 5 apple support reps to answer this question and still cannot be resolved so I hope you guys can help.

    I'm on the last machine of iMac (21.5 inch, 4K retina display) with operating system up-to-date. I tried to install windows with the bootcamp assistant. I belong to users who need a USB drive connected to it.

    Machine made all the copy of the files of my ISO file that is on my local drive, but when it restarts to start installing windows, he went in a small window about 2 inches of width in the middle of the screen. I managed to make the first steps, including the seizure of the product code. When I got to the screen where it shows the installation discs for Windows, there is no bootcamp drive! I couldn't use the other readers had to cancel. Have made several times now and always after the round trip in a single volume on the computer (and therefore remove the drive bootcamp). And Yes, there was a training camp in car, as I could see it in disk utility, but with no data on this.

    Really grateful if someone could help me determine why the configuration screen becomes small, and also why he can't find my bootcamp drive. As training camp did things that I can't really find anything I have hurt.

    Thank you and rega

  • Cannot extend imported bootcamp windows 10 disc

    I imported my instance of windows 10 bootcamp partition in VMWare Fusion 8.1 because I want to start running it practically, but when I created the partition boot camp of origin I did hilarious small (40 GB). I need to resize on the rise... but... the disc size already reports that this is the size of my Mac drive and it wont let me not reduce it from the interface of VMWare - it will only allow me to extend upward.

    Screenshot 2016-02-19 08.30.53.png

    Screenshot 2016-02-19 08.32.01.png

    Instructions say open the virtual machine itself and expand the partition... but this option is grayed out when I right click on the drive in windows 10, perhaps because it seems that it is to see the other drives on the hard drive to the mac (but this is an instance of boot camp imported , does not not out of boot camp).

    Screenshot 2016-02-19 08.36.25.png

    I found an article intended for XP users who suggest to delete the virtual machine mac partition but this idea frankly gives me the willies directionless some more recent.

    Any ideas what to try? I'm having a devil of a time finding useful documents...

    Thanks for your help!


    It is not a stupid question.

    If you import the virtual machine that you mentioned your disc looks like always on when it is running under bootcamp.

    So your virtual disk is exactly the same as the before done physical disk structure. I don't know why VMware engineers went this way, but my best guess would be that it makes the import/clone of a virtual machine that is less prone to error.

    I don't have the exact steps to make sure that the disk you are using is indeed not a bootcamped score more. If you have removed the bootcamp on your machine and may still start the virtual machine then that would be a good indicator that it is indeed an imported VM. Other signs are the size that the virtual machine is on your machine. If running as a training camp for the size is tiny as the virtual machine should only have meta data pointing to the real disk.

    Before you do anything, make a backup of your virtual machine on an external drive, so that you have something to fall back on.

    FWIW, other people had the same problem, for example here, size of HARD drive on the Conversion of Bootcamp at VM , but if you're looking for there's more.



  • Bootcamp Windows - partition cannot be mounted

    Hey all,.

    I've been using Windows on my iMac (late 2012, Yosemite 10.10.5) without problem but today after I started MacOS Yosemite (to control simple file), cannot start again to return to Windows. Had no problem Bootcamp before... have not used to any advantage either 3rd disk utility. The only thing I have recently increased the Windows size 200 GB partition by decreasing the MacOS partition through disk utility (a month ago, no problem since then until today)

    1. Windows has disappeared from the startup disk

    2. disk utility shows disk0s4 gray and cannot be mounted. In addition, the correct partition size was 700 but here its listed as 500 GB GB (which was the old size before you increase it)

    3 when I try to restart with pressed ALT, Windows, but cannot restart, with a black screen showing "a disk error occurred.

    I'm not very familiar with techniques more. Only, I tried to install "Find" but cannot achieve anything with it.

    I tried your advice above and seems THAT NTFS is there...

    one last thing... when I try to check disk0s4, said "it should be repaired. When I hit repair; It says this:

  • Update the graphic driver for Bootcamp 6.0 questions

    After you perform a new installation of Windows 10 1607, I proceeded to install Bootcamp AppleBcUpdate.exe drivers on my MacbookPro 11.5 i7 Dual Graphics.

    Everything worked fine after that restart once the installation has been done. Now I checked the Apple software update, and he gave me a few updates. Specifically the bottom three in the picture below.
