I have just bought Winclone 6 Standard to Migrate a Bootcamp partition.
I am trying to Migrate over the network between a MacBook Pro early 2011 running macOS Sierra with Windows 10 Creator Edition on Bootcamp and a new iMac 2017 running macOS Sierra also.
Following the Migrating a Bootcamp Partition guide I it seems the preferences pane in Winclone 6 is different from Winclone 4 (my last version) and there is no option to Share Winclone Images on Network check box to tick in the Preferences pane.
I have confirmed that I can browse the Source MacBook Pro’s Bootcamp Partition over the network on the destination iMac’s Finder, so I know I have network connectivity.
Can the “Standard” version support this, or has the feature moved?
We removed the feature in WInclone 6 and recommend deployments use package based deployments or target disk mode. They have proved to be much faster and more reliable. For a single migration, it is usually fastest and easiest to save an image and then restore that image. Here is the migration guide:
@tperfitt Thank you for the feedback. I have used an external drive to conduct the migration. I’ve got a working Windows Boot Camp partition on my iMac now and am just trying to work through the issues I’m having with the drivers.
Thanks again for your help.
Referring to the online Winclone instructions before I purchased my new MacBook Pro, I also purchased the appropriate Thunderbolt cables and adaptors to allow me to migrate over the network. In other words, I had planned, based on Winclone’s online instructions, to migrate from my older MacBook to my new MacBook by connecting a Thunderbolt Bridge. After several days of frustration, I have finally read this post. In the meantime I have purchased a 2 TB Seagate Hard Drive in hopes of using that to transfer the image. But Windows demands one type of format for communication and Mac demands another. So I am stuck. I have reached out to my local community in hopes of finding a computer doctor to assist me. The promise of an easy migration has cost me days, and I am now without my work computer.
Sorry about that. Let me know if I can help.
