Unable to verify startup

I have a boot camp partition which is running on a Mac mini (Late 2012 with macOS Mojave 10.14.6 I am using Winclone V 8.0.1

Here are the steps I have used to attempt to migrate the Windows 10 boot camp partition - based on the Winclone user guide.

  1. Run Chkdsk on the source windows 10 system
  2. Run “Create Image from Volume”
  3. Used OSX migration tool to migrate the OSX operating system.
  4. With Disk Utility create a partition “Windows”
  5. From the New Mac mini (2018) with same Mojave 10.14.6 run Winclone “Restore Image” using as source the file created in step 2 above and the “Windows” partition created in step 4 above.
  6. Attempt to boot “Windows” partition…get

On the boot I “Unable to verify Startup disk”

Any help offered would be greatly appreciated. I’ve spent hours trying to find a solution to this problem.

This sounds like there is an issue with Secure Boot. Try disabling Secure Boot and see if the issue persists.

Trying to implement the solution you have proposed. I have deactivated my license on the source computer and now trying activate the license on the target computer and get activation error on my license.

Currently the license is not active on any machine.
Thanks for your help with this.

OK…So managed to get the license issue resolved on my own.

System boot briefly but has a windows recovery issue when booting. Does this therefore mean that the image created does not work and somehow needs to be recreated ?

Thanks

Did it blue screen? What was the error message?

The system won’t boot and says to use Microsoft recovery for original install media. I remember having to extend the boot camp partition at one time because the windows system was starting to run out of space. If it help I can send you a screen shot of the disk layout with disk utility? I am wondering if that might be factor in the error I am getting.

Let me know if sending you a screenshot would be helpful.

Thank you for your help so far.

A screenshot would definitely help.

I’m going to try to re-install everything and take a new copy of the bootcamp partition. I’ll send you the results in a couple of days.
