If you make the container smaller, then the mismatch will go away. For example, use the command given below. diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk0s2 1.6t Afterwards, you can enter the command given below to resize to 2.0 TB. diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk0s2 0

UPDATE: I tried a different flash drive, TOSHIBA 16GB USB2.0, and it worked!

I reinstalled macOS. But it still didn't recover my 50GB. So I went into disk utility, clicked on the 50GB chunk and after it was selected, I pressed delete on my keyboard and it recovered my 50GB back into the main partition.

The problem is called overallocation. The following helped me to fix it on Mojave APFS: Please note, there is a lot of posts out there telling you to do fsck. If you are on APFS you need to do fsck_apfs instead. This is what made the difference for me. Shut down your Mac. Start and hold Cmd-S to boot into single user mode. Run fsck_apfs -o It will ask you ...

Thank you very much David! I've tried other instructions without success and lost a lot of time. Thank you for your detailed instructions! For others: When installing the drivers in step 10 the computer restarted (I guess the setup program crashed). After restart I started the setup again and this time it was successful. My situation: MacBook Pro 2018 (...

This is a very common question. To reclaim the lost space, enter the command given below. sudo diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk0s2 0 Some of the Windows 10 ISO files released by Microsoft can not be transferred by the Boot Camp Assistant to a flash drive as described by the document you referenced in your question. This is either because the flash drive ...

SD cards frequently have a read-only switch. Perhaps this is on.

As of today Windows 10 1809 (October) will not work with bootcamp! - windows will not find drivers - windows will complain about selected drive - etc etc Use Windows 10 1803 (April) and bootcamp should work like it's supposed to.

If people are still having this issue in 2019 and have USB-C ports on their Mac, Apple's USB-C to 3.5mm adapter seems to fix this issue. While it doesn't work on macOS, it certainly allow you to use the microphone on Apple Earpods (and the in-line controls) and other headsets. The adapter is $9 in US and is mainly for iPad Pro 2018. I hope this helps, as it ...

From Windows, you can open a Command Prompt window as an Administrator. Next, you could enter the commands given below to change disk0s2 to an APFS type. diskpart select disk 0 select partition 2 set id=7C3457EF-0000-11AA-AA11-00306543ECAC override gpt attributes=0x0000000000000000 exit Update The output from dd if=/dev/disk0s2 count=1 bs=512 | vis -c ...

Trying to get a "more recent Mac's bootcamp installer" is the wrong approach to take in a effort to solve your problem. Especially, since there are other ways to solve your problem which involve using the rEFInd Boot Manager. This free software is capable of instructing the firmware to boot Mojave. One solution involves creating a small 300 MB "Mac OS ...

OK, since I can read the bootcamp partition, I guess I'll just back it up and reinstall Windows. I'll first have to manually delete the bootcamp partition and resize the MacOS partition manually, since Bootcamp assistant doesn't know what to do now (fairly useless app, in my opinion!). Thanks for everyone's input.

This question has been asked before here a Ask Different. One possible answer is the disk (drive) where the software is being saved is actually too small. On your model Mac, the Boot Camp Assistant creates a temporary ExFAT formatted partition where both the Windows 10 ISO files are copied and the downloaded Windows support software files are saved. The ...

This site is littered with very detailed, yet very arcane methods of achieving this, written by people far smarter than me. I still think the simplest & safest way is to buy Paragon Hard Disk Manager & do it from a GUI.

The Boot Camp Assistant will not accept Windows 7 because your Mac is a 2015 model. Starting in 2015, Apple eliminated including a legacy BIOS with the Mac firmware. Windows 7 can only BIOS boot and therefore can not be installed on your Mac. It does not matter how you create the flash drive or what method you use in an attempt to install.

If the BCA will not create the partitions in a way you want and you can, then consider installing W10 using a flash drive. While the use of a flash drive is not required, the procedure is simplified when one is employed. A Microsoft recommended install of W10 involves creating 3 new partitions which are listed below. A Microsoft Reserved (MSR) partition of ...

Disk Utility can't resize Windows NTFS partitions. You can do advanced container/partitions editing in a GUI with a third party application: Paragon Hard Disk Manager It has fully functional 10 day trial period.

It depends on the specifics of the Windows setup. If your friend had the Mac setup with "Device Encryption" (known as BitLocker and/or Full Disk Encryption in earlier versions of Windows) - then the data is reasonable secure as long as your friend had a hard-to-guess passphrase for unlocking the encryption. If your friend did not encrypt the Mac, then all ...

If the Mac is booted into Windows, you lose all the benefits of macOS like Find my Mac. Unless you've set a firmware password, presume the thief has access to absolutely everything on that system since it's now effectively a Windows PC. My strong suggestion is that it's better to run Windows under Parallels than to use Boot Camp and thereby give up so many ...

If a person created a Windows 10 installer flash drive and use this flash drive to boot the Mac, then the person would have access to the Windows user files. The ISO file needed to create this flash drive is made available free of charge by Microsoft. The file can be downloaded from this Microsoft website. For example, when booting from the October 2018 ...

You didn’t provide enough detail to adequately address the actual problem (I.e MacBook model, version of Win10, was it unlocked/unencrypted, etc ), so we must look at this from the worst case scenario: Once a device is physically in the possession of nefarious parties, you must assume the entire system is compromised. Guessing what the risk is at this ...

Windows 10 installed on a Mac does not need a third party driver in order to read an external NTFS hard drive (question was based on wrong perception). Thank you to David Anderson

Since your drive was hybrid partitioned, I will assume Windows was setup to legacy BIOS boot. You can confirm this by enter the following command in a Terminal application window. ls /Volumes/BOOTCAMP/Boot/BCD If Windows was set to BIOS boot, then you will get the following response. /Volumes/BOOTCAMP/Boot/BCD Otherwise, you will get the response shown ...

According to everymac.com, your Mac is a 2006 model which was discontinued January 8, 2008. (I made the assumption 2.66QX means 2.66 GHz Quad Core Xeon) This model originally was designed to run OS X 10.4.7. Since the Mac OS X v10.6.2 Update is dated Nov 9, 2009, I doubt the disc you have is the correct one for this model Mac. The OS X 10.7.5 (Lion) was ...

I would guess 10.6.2 would be just fine to boot most MacPro with that model, so you might have a hardware issue or bad DVD. More specifically, there are 8 models with A1186 - so you might need to try OS between 10.4 but most of them would work with 10.6.8 - so I’d start with any 10.6 media you can get your hands on if you can’t get a serial number or more ...
