I have been having a bit of a nightmare this weekend.
I have a mid 2014 MacBook pro running High Sierra and was running a Windows 10 installation from a portable SSD drive because I only had a 128mb SSD in the MacBook.
I decided that I would upgrade the MacBook internal SSD so that I could have both machines running within the MacBook to remove the need to have the external SSD.
I swapped out the drives and put the original drive into a SSD enclosure so that it could still be used and then used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone my OSX system to the new internal HD.
I then tried to clone the Windows 10 installation to a partition I created on the internal SSD but I was unable to boot from it. I then decided to try to create a fresh Windows 10 bootcamp installation and would then migrate the data over later. I had lots of issues with the bootcamp and the size of the files within the Windows ISO. After using the Boot Camp ISO converter, I was able to build the Windows installer only for the Windows installation to then fail mid installation because the BootCamp drive was not visible.
I then decided to do a complete wipe of the MacBook internal SSD and built a Mojave usb installer. Once installed I then tried creating a Windows 10 bootcamp installation. This time I was not able to download the Windows Support files from Apple so I was stuck again. This was when I heard about Winclone and that I could simply clone the original Windows 10 installation on my external SSD and apply it to a partition on my new MacBook internal SSD. This sounded perfect so I purchased, installed attempted to create the image and restore it to a partition.
This all worked apart from Windows was unstable and after a few minutes I would get a BSOD. Loading in Safe Mode would work but I was unable to find out the cause. I did try to reinstall the Apple drivers but it wouldn’t let me.
I have now resorted to wiping my MacBook internal SSD again and installing High Sierra again as I know that Bootcamp is working with the OS (well I can download the apple drivers). I then downloaded and went to install Winclone to realise that it is not compatible with High Sierra. Is it possible to get hold of a copy of the older Winclone so that I can use it?
All I wanted to to was to increase my hard drive space and migrate a working Windows 10 from an external SSD. But it seems whatever I do something is stopping me!
Hope you can help
