How would one go about using a .raw (hard drive image from a .vdi) file containing an installation of Windows 10 in the creation of a BOOTCAMP partition (for Windows 10), on the latest version of OS X?

  • To install Windows on a Mac, one normally uses the Boot Camp Assistant to create the BOOTCAMP partition, download the Boot Camp Support Software and then start the Windows installation. Where did the .raw file come from, how was it created and what does it contain? – user3439894 Oct 20 '16 at 1:24
  • @user3439894 - the .raw file was created from a .vdi file, which contains the information for a virtual hard disk. The goal would be to use it to actually boot Windows, instead of just doing so inside of a VM. (It has windows 10 installed, and a few other applications.) – D. Folder Oct 20 '16 at 2:04
  • Bootcamp is not a VM – nohillside Oct 20 '16 at 3:43
  • @patrix I understand that. The point is to take the VM, a .vdi file that can be / has been converted into a .raw file, and turn it into a bootcamp partition. So that it can be used not as a VM, and instead be dual booted to. – D. Folder Oct 20 '16 at 6:28
