Cloned Bootcamp works on MacPro 4.1, black screen on MacBook Pro Mid 2012


We used Winclone to clone a Bootcamp partition (direct) from a 250 SSD to an 960 SSD. We created the Bootcamp partition using the BC Utility and clone successfully. We used a MacPro 4.1 to do the cloning. However, in the MacBook that had the BC SSD before, Windows cannot boot (black screen with flash cursor and a short time cryptic NTFS).
The cloned BC can boot fine in the MacPro used to clone it.

Best regards


When Winclone restores, it detects the type of Mac that is restoring and sets how it boots (EFI or Legacy/MBR). It is likely that after you cloned, it was set to be legacy booting. It is relatively easy to resolve: Just install on Winclone on the MacBook, and change the boot mode to EFI. This article explains how to do that:
