Hi,


Just got an upgraded iMac from Apple with an upgrade of 3tb for the hard disk.


For the likes of me I can't seem to get Bootcamp working on it. Is anyone else on here using a 3TB with Bootcamp successfuly?


Getting frustrated having rebuilt the machine 10 times now!!!!!!!!!!!

Not sure, but Apple has a tech document that might be relevant:

Do you require bootcamp (as opposed to running a VM)?


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

I finally solved the issue and Apple did not even help.

Not impressed Apple

You have to use over 801.6gb in the windows partition to allow for bootcamp to build the partition successfully. Apple had no idea.

I would erase everything and create a single (1) partition, then try again. There may be a corruption problem or you mistakenly created multiple or FAT partitions. 801.6GB is a common partition problem for 3TB drives. Go to Disk Utility and take a look at the partition type/size.
