Just purchased WinClone 8 and don't see BOOTCAMP vol

macOS 10.15.4 (beta), launched and everything is grayed out (Select Volume does nothing):

$ diskutil list
/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *121.3 GB disk0
1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_APFS Container disk2 121.1 GB disk0s2

/dev/disk1 (internal, physical):
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *3.0 TB disk1
1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1
2: Apple_APFS Container disk2 2.6 TB disk1s2
3: Apple_KernelCoreDump 1.1 GB disk1s3
4: Apple_APFS Container disk3 64.0 GB disk1s4
5: Microsoft Basic Data BOOTCAMP 317.5 GB disk1s5

Does the Boot Camp volume has a Windows folder and a System32 folder in it? That is how Winclone knows that it is a valid Windows volume.

Hi Tim,

I think I figured the issue.

I completely re-installed the public macOS 10.15.3 (19D67) from the network. Then I launched WinClone 8 and it did see my BOOTCAMP volume.

Then I upgrade-installed Apple internal macOS 10.15.3 (I am an Apple employee) and WinClone 8 no longer sees my BOOTCAMP volume.

A couple days ago I had tried a macOS 10.15.4 beta and thought that maybe the beta was the issue.

It looks the issue is with Apple internal macOS builds. Even though those builds are the same as the public builds, but with way more stuff in them allowing internal development, there is something in there that tricks WinClone?

Note that I have not touched my BOOTCAMP volume at all (have not even booted from it for weeks), so I would be surprised if the volume was altered by my macOS installs.

If you want I can debug more, I attached your log.

Thanks.

Best regards,

Jeff

thanks for getting back to me. I edit your log to remove the license key and email address. I have not heard issues with 10.15.3 or 10.15.4 beta. There isn’t really anything special about how winclone determines if it is a windows volume. It checks to see if it is a windows type format (fat32, exfat, ntfs) and if there is a Windows/System32 directory.

Thanks Tim,
I definitely did not work when I tried. Maybe you should have more verbose logging to help next time.

Bets regards,

Jeff
