Which drive are you using for the Windows boot disk? It sounds like you are using an external USB drive. I'm not so sure that's supported all that well. I mean Windows 10 is built to boot from USB drives but there's a lot of care that has to be taken to make that work.

You can try to copy the EFI partition. The EFI partition is required for macOS and Windows to start. That would be rdisk0s1 to rdisk2s1 in your case. You can mount both partition and copy boot files over. For example: diskutil mount disk0s1 diskutil mount disk2s1 cp -a /volumes/EFI/EFI/Microsoft /volumes/EFI\ 1/EFI/ Or: dd if=/dev/rdisk0s1 of=/dev/rdisk2s1

Apple documentation states you should be able to replicate a bootable APFS container to a new drive. Unfortunately, the GUI based software from Apple is wrought with bugs. Below are the steps I preformed to successfully clone Catalina macOS 10.15.5 to a new USB drive. To be honest, I admit this was tested using a VirtualBox virtual machine. Boot to macOS ...

Since you are only using 100 GB on the 465 GB partition you can copy everything in the 465 partition to the 320 partition. Just select everything and copy it using the Finder. To ...

You made partition 2 type 53746F72-6167-11AA-AA11-00306543ECAC. You should have made partition 2 type 7C3457EF-0000-11AA-AA11-00306543ECAC. The commands to change the type are given below.

In a word, yes. It seems to be a 2015 15-inch MacBook Pro with a core i7 Processor. That is plenty of horsepower to install Windows, assuming you have enough disk space to dedicate to Windows (I wouldn't go less than 20GB) it should work fine. Not sure what you mean about the free version of Windows 10, though. While Microsoft did give free licenses to ...
