I am trying to install Windows 10 on my iMac 27" (Mid 2011 - iMac12,2 - 3.4GHz -Core I7, OSX 10.11.6). When rebooting with the WININSTALL key, Windows Setup stops as it says it cannot install on the BootCamp Assistant generated partition (it is FAT32, wants NTFS). So I click the
Formatbutton and he now says that the partition is MBR and he wants a GPT. So how do I make a GPT?
Note: Regarding the Boot Camp Assistant application: I modified the info.plist file by removing the "Pre" in ' "PreUSBBootSupportedModels" ' so I could get the checkbox to install Windows on the key.
Next question, I tried partitioning manually as suggested in question: Boot Camp Assistance is stuck on create a partition?, but the command:
sudo diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk0s2 180.8G FAT32 BOOTCAMP 70G
fails as diskutil does not understand verbs
So I checked on my MBP running High Sierra and there
apfs exists but not
resizeContainer. Should I upgrade the iMac to High Sierra?
Here is my
/dev/disk0 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD 967.3 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 4: Microsoft Basic Data BOOTCAMP 32.0 GB disk0s5
