I have a MacBook Retina with a 1 TB SSD.
I started with a Mac (387 GB) and a Win partition (400 GB), but now I need to add a tiny extra Windows partition (175 GB) to run a specific software.
What I’ve done so far:
I created a partition using the disk utility and formatted it as exFAT
I created a bootable Windows USB drive, it’s called “EFI Boot” when I view it through the turn on the computer while pressing Opt screen.
I added the Windows support files to another USB drive
I installed Windows through the usual turn on the computer while pressing the Opt, and clicking on the installation USB drive.
Through the installation I was asked where I wanted to install my copy, I formatted my previously created partition to make it NTFS and then installed Windows on it.
I connected my USB drive with the Windows support files and ran
Setup.exefrom the BootCamp folder to install the drivers. Then I restarted to apply the changes.
Now I’m on the turn on while pressing Opt window but I only see two partitions, my previous Windows partition is nowhere to be seen.
I went to Disk Utility on Mac to see if the partitions were okay and they seem to be, but now both are called BootCamp with the difference of the mounting point (
so I’m thinking maybe that’s the issue.
