Boot-camp Mac Stuck In Windows ((LINK))
Boot Camp Assistant is a handy tool that can help you install Windows on Mac. However, like other apps, it's not immune to errors. While preparing the drive, you may encounter various errors, for instance, "The installer disc could not be found," Boot Camp stuck on "Partitioning disk" for hours, or Boot Camp stuck on "Roll back partitions."
Boot-camp Mac Stuck In Windows
If you find your Boot Camp stuck on "Partitioning disk" for more than 3 hours with a message saying "The system may be unresponsive. Please do not power off or restart the computer until the operation is complete.", it is likely experiencing issues that can't be fixed by waiting.
When you are ready, you can install Windows again. If the "Boot Camp stuck on Partitioning disk" persists, you can back up all data on your Mac with Time Machine, iCloud, or other preferred utilities, erase your startup disk, reinstall macOS, and restore your data. After the clean macOS reinstallation, you should be able to install Windows via Boot Camp Assistant.
I did experiment a bit by cloning macOS Monterey onto an external SSD drive that only suffered a minimall loss of read write speeds; and loaded windows 10 directly onto the 128GB NVME and loaded all the data as a logical drive, I also tried it out as setting it up as a dynamic drive.
I followed the directions as originally posted (DOS_FAT_32 with MBR on the external) and got all the way through the windows virtual install without a glitch. When I rebooted my mac, holding option, the only boot option that appeared was my Mac HD.
Oh thats a shame, if you do ever succeed in finding a workaround, please let me know. Im having to run windows on another laptop, carrying them both around is a real pain. There is nowhere near enough space on my hard drive to partition it for a windows installation.
My mac apparently partitioned the disk as GPT, which Windows would not install on. I kept formatting the disk inside the windows VM and it got to NTSF but is still a GPT partition. How can I fix this so that windows will install?
According to -os-catalina-doesnt-see-boot-camp-on-external-drive.2213418/ you may need to go into System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Full Disk Access and click on +, then select System Preferences from your Applications folder.
Help I have done this three times followed all the directions and get stuck here. I have a 2017 iMac running Catalina and the hard drive is a Samsung X5 Please someone help before I jump out my first floor window
Failed:When Creating bootcamp.vmdk, I was getting I/O read error showing as its already in use.Solution:Make sure the External Drive on whom you want to install windows is ejected and run the command in terminal again.
Solution:I was not able to find its solution so far. Maybe its because bootcamp expects the installation of windows to be on MAC drive rather then on external drive.Any help in solving this problem will greatly help.
2) The Fat32 format was only for the USB that holds the Bootcamp support files, and not for your external OS drive. Mac can read MS-DOS and MS-DOS FAT32, but their Disk Utility has no option to format FAT32. It was important though because formatted as MBR/MS-DOS, windows did not recognize it at all and only offered to reformat it whenever I plugged it in. So, I took them up on the offer, erased the Bootcamp files and reformatted it as FAT-32 as Windows defaulted it to, then went back into Mac OS and ran the Bootcamp download again pointing to the USB drive now FAT32. Windows then recognized it when I returned and all Bootcamp drivers were successfully installed.
ok, have followed your changes, and after installing windows,i reboot (in time) my mac with the alt-key, he shows 2 disks (OS and Windows) , select the windows-disk, and then a message shows up: . Any idea what i did wrong?
Regarding trackpad not working(soft click), its some sort of problem with windows 10 user accounts.Go to user accounts, create another account (administrator), log off from your default administrator account, log in to your newly created administrator account, go to user accounts and change the default account from administrator to standard. Now log in to your default (now standard account) and bootcamp control panel in the task bar should work fine. After the trackpad, you can again change account to administrator, if needed.
I have an external fire wire drive with bootable OS 10.6.8 and a Windows 7 partition.I upgraded to OS 11.3 on my internal SSD. The Mac OS on the external drive is still bootable. The windows partition is not. If I install the drive into the laptop (6.2) Everything works fine.
Long story short I was having 2 issues: first one, whenever I chain loaded apple_set_os.efi first, Windows 10 would crash and reboot. After consulting with Mantiz John and Nando4, I think the cause of this for me was that I was enrolled and using a windows insiders preview version. After going with 1703 version of windows and opting out of windows insider previews, I was able to enable the Intel iGPU on Windows.
Boot with reFind selecting apple_set_os.efi(previously running the integrated.bat as mentioned on the guide), but I am diverting from the guide a bit by after apple_set_os.efi, chainloading Clover with the modified DSDT and then booting windows bootcamp with Clover.
One more thing..I just noticed that it only charge my mac under MACOS with 60W.Not sure how to check it under windows so can not verify if it is a MacOS thing.though.. with the eGPU,the load of dGPU will be very low,so 60W? not too big a deal. after several reboot and unplug for a while it get back to 100W charging under mac againbut still try to figure it out
Posted by: nando4 If a system upgrade is not possible/feasible, then consider booting apple_set_os.efi using a USB stick: -setup/how-to-keep-mbps-irisiris-pro-activated-when-booting-into-windows-boot-camp/
My mantiz docking station has been airing for half a year. My 2017 no touch bar computer installed win10 1809. As long as the egpu stuck in the Windows logo does not connect to the egpu is normal. What should I do
Hi there! SO I am succesfully running an egpu and driving my intel graphics at the same time. But I just ran into an issue. I unplugged one of my thunderbolt 3 hubs on accident one day and now my internal macbook pro display sticks on the windows logo. My system recognizes the display is there but I cant display anything on it. Anyway to fix this?
So I was on the rEFInd boot screen, but I wanted to go take a shower so I leave the computer on and leave. I come back and now I have a really annoying Windows 10 logo flickering on my screen. I turn off the eGPU but it still flickers, and it flickers on my OSX side, so now I have a windows logo flickering on both Windows and OSX. My eGPU has been working like a charm before this.
I have a Mac Mini 2018 and installed windows 10 enterprise edition , after reboot it shows windows logo but screen goes black for almost 15-16 minutes then desktop icons shows very slowly but they are in frozen state, basically not functional. I recently encounter with this issue, I imaged more than 100 Mac minis model 2018 and 2014 with boot camp and widows 10, never had any issue, just start to having this issue late in July with new patch of Mac mini we received. any idea how I can fix the issue?
After reinstalling windows 10 due to a need for some repairs, the bootcamp assistant is no longer available. I assume the windows reinstall wiped it out. Can I reinstall the bootcamp assistants software to the windows 10 system without wiping it out after it is already up and running. I would like to see it in the system tray again and have access to controlling the mouse and keyboard again.Thanks very muchJorge
i have the same issue. If you need to get back to macOS, I've been using the old method. Choose to restart from windows, and as soon as you hear the mac boot "chime" hold down "alt" on the keyboard. There should be an option for your two boot volumes on your screen, just use the keyboard to move over to the macOS volume and press return. I'm no developer or computer engineer but i imagine it has something to do with the new Apple File System format that windows does't recognize, as it's a new volume format that only exists on beta Mac machines, vs the older file systems which have been around for a while.
I upgraded to high sierra from sierra via appstore on 25th. Had already got windows 10 installed on bootcamp. didnt switch to windows till today. not after starting in windows 10 cant go back to osx. Recovery option not coming , option key not showing boot option. What am i supposed to do ?
Same for me, I thought it was because it changes depending on what you os you installed last so like the right would be the last os you've installed into the partition. I'm kinda stupid and my first thought was like oh maybe it's just bootcamp needing a update to support High Sierra and the apfs but my stupid curious self decided to just oh well delete my windows partition and start over (i didn't have much besides some games and some files i didn't reallt care about). Anyways now i messed up because now it automatically boots me into windows when i open my macbook pro a1707 (2017) since i can't change it to boot into macOS from the bootcamp control panel. I hope apple updates the bootcamp asap since 10.13 isn't a beta anymore but until then i guess i'm going to delete windows again because i don't feel like holding down the option key everytime now and to answer your question my theory was wrong about it being based off the last os you install into the partition because windows was still on the left so my new theory that makes more sense is that 10.13 now boots mac hd into the right for the setting and not the left anymore, which that kind of bothering me so goodbye windows until the next update for bootcamp
