Hello: I have spend the last three days tring to get Bootcamp and Win10 1809 installed. I found a great article from the Twocanoe’s team about large ISO’s causing the failure. This was after trying all sorts of suggested and incorrect approaches that are documented on the web.
Anyways, my system is a Macbook Pro, early 2015, recent 500gb NVMe SSD upgrade and APFS. Windows 10 ISO is from the Volume License Microsoft catalog.
What I read in the document makes perfect sense. I deleted all previous attempoted partitions. Used the tool to split the ISO making it Fat32 freindly. Loaded the resulting tool on a connected USB3.0 drive. I was very hopeful and BOOM - Same Error. Windows files could not be written.
I would like to buy Win7 clone (I was a previous customer but apparently my account is not recognized). I cannot buy until I get BC and Win10 working.
Any help would be appretiated. Specific questions are:
- Should the ISO be on the MAC drive (APFS) or on an external USB drive (FATex)
- Is there a way to avoid the 15-30 minutes Windows support software download. Its killing me after 15+ attempts.
Thanks in advance,
