According to Apple's Knowledge Base article, your iMac isn't supported directly in Boot Camp. https://support.apple.com/kb/HT204990 You should probably get VirtualBox or another VM solution to run the Windows 10 as that would bridge the driver gap better than trying to piece things together yourself. It might be possible, but I don't know where you'd ...

I think the best option here is to use Microsoft Remote Desktop. This is different than the Remote Desktop Client you mention. It has a orangish / red icon and can be found in the app store for free. During setup for the connection there is an option for resolution, have that selected to "native" and you should be able to take advantage of full screen. I ...

Why so complicated? Just start Windows 8.1 and then update via web or when notified for the free copy download, to Windows 10. Forget and ignore the Boot Camp compatibility. I have updated a MacBook Pro, Late 2008 or maybe Early 2009, without any problems from Windows 8.1 to 10. By the way I also updated my Mac Pro, Early 2008, to Windows 10. This ...

The install likely damaged the boot partition, making the Mac think there are no operating systems at all. It is likely/possible that your Mac partition is OK. Can you boot with COMMAND-R (recovery mode) and reinstall Mac OS? That should fix the boot partition and get you back up and running. Doing so should not cause you to lose any data as long as you ...

I had experienced the same problem after resetting my Macbook Air and then attempting to re-install W7 in Bootcamp. The default bootcamp assistant download returns an error message, so I had to download an older version which did boot the W7 desktop, but without drivers for sound and wifi. I did however have USB functionality, from this I was able to insert ...

Open BootCamp Assistant and open the about window. You should be similar to Version 5.1.4 (500) if you are on 10.10.5 BootCamp gets updated when you update OS X so it's really not dependent upon any version of Windows whatsoever so you would be up date on BootCamp even if you deleted your windows partition and started over.

As @bmike♦ said, BootCamp gets updated when you update OS X: indeed i'm running 10.11 and i've got Boot Camp Assistant version 6. Now, i did the same thing: i updated from Windows 8 to Windows 10 and i didn't need to update any drivers whatsoever. I had my Windows 8 installed with BootCamp Drivers (but i didn't had the whole partition thingy because I ...

I upgraded to from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I was able to either click "Skip" or "Do this later" when asked for the Product Key. Once I finished installing, Windows 10 activated. Running Windows 10 from an upgrade was a disaster. However, this fixed my problem. Now, when I do clean installs, Windows 10 activates.

Actually, after my comment above I played around a bit and got to the same screen as the original post. However: you should choose edit partitions. Chances are there will be 2 partitions of which the second was not selected (which was my actual windows drive). Selecting the second partition instead of the first actually resolved it for me.
