Hello everybody
i update my old mac pro , to a mac pro5.1, and now i have Mojave installed. The problem now is with Boot Camp

on the image you can see that i can't install windows on a partition, because Boot Camp is not compatible with my Mac.

there is an option to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot

I’ve ran into this issue myself. I don’t know a fur sure fix but I originally thought it was a NVRAM issue and resetting it would fix it. Unfortunately that’s not been the case (at least for me), I wouldn’t recommend doing it yet, I think it has to do with the firmware updates required to get Mojave to instal. I posted about this a little on my latest post so you could check that out if I get any replies there too.

What version of macOS are you running? It appears that the version of Boot Camp that you're using is not compatible with your Mac. If you upgraded your MacPro to a 5.1, what about macOS?

Can you send me your post link?
At the end, did you get install windows using bootcamp? or any other option?
Because i need install some work applications, and those are just available for windows ...

This should work here, it was with boot camp and it sort of worked on High Sierra. I had a lot of issues with the bootcamp drivers since I had a GT120 in my machine to switch between Operating systems.

good link @b.lam :D

@juliovg bootcamp on the 5.1 will only install on to the same drive as the OS on a second partition + only works with HFS+ formatted drives
so when i mentioned a second drive i was under the assumption you where trying to install on to the same drive as the OS and as you cant to that on osx10.14 as the file system is APFS (APFS can not bee seen by windows, unless it's changed)

any way that link has all you need, good luck :D
iv not made the jump to osx10.14 or win 10
