I tried to do a Windows 10 migration from a 2015 MacBook Pro (with Mojave) to a 2019 MacBook Pro with Catalina.
This was my first time doing this.
I even read your tips on doing a migration.
It DID suggest doing a sys prep run first, but it appeared (to me) to offer a catch 22.
The sys prep suggested I do a winclone image backup first, but the tips suggested I do an sys prep before I do the backup !
That left me in a quandary and I opted to not do the sys prep.
I successfully made the image backup and then ran the restore.
After a reboot into Windows I got a blue screen stating that a digital signature of a file could not be verified. The file in Windows\system32\drivers was prl_strg.sys. (Error 0xc0000428)
Since I knew this was a file I did not need, I did manage to get windows running after I pressed one or more keys after pressing F8 in startup settings.
Thinking I was doing the right thing, I deleted the file in question and rebooted and realized I had made it worse - as it led to an “inaccessible boot device” error
I now have now discovered your page here:
Do I understand this correctly:
I should do a winclone image first before doing sys prep
THEN do a sys prep with OOBE and generalize turned on and shutdown at the end
This will make the windows 10 install force me to start windows from scratch - but that is what I want for the new computer?
Then do another winclone image and the restore THAT to a freshly formatted FAT32 partition on the new Mac
