    I have BootCamp installed on a 500GB Samsung 840 EVO in a Thunderbolt enclosure attached to a 2017 27 inch iMac. (4.2GHz, 580 Pro, 512GB SSD)

    I downloaded the latest BootCamp drivers from BootCamp Assistant and installed them in BootCamp Windows 10 but I seem to be missing some tabs in the BootCamp control panel and the media keys on the Magic Keyboard 2 (with numeric pad) are not working.

    BootCamp version is 6.1 (Build 6760)

    Has anyone with a Magic Keyboard 2 managed to get the media keys working? Anyone else missing tabs in the BootCamp control panel?

    So I got the media keys working. Apparently the Applekeyboardinstaller64.exe was the problem. Every time I tried to run it manually it would show "Install Failed". I extracted the contents of the executable, right-clicked on Keymagic64.inf and chose "Install". That worked.

    It still seems like I'm missing a tab in the BootCamp Control Panel. I've got Startup Disk, Keyboard and Power.

    Oh well, at least the media keys are working again. [​IMG]

    I plan to do a similar thing. Will be ordering a new iMac this week after closing up a few loose ends.
    Have a Crucial M4 SSD 256GB that I will try to make work as an external windows boot drive.

    Thanks for the info. Please keep us informed on your progress.
