    Hello,
    I'm currently trying to get Windows 10 to install on my 2016 MBP, but after partitioning the hard drive via bootcamp and restarting, the installation gives me an error. "Windows cannot locate the disk and partition specified in the unattended answer´s file" -- Whats up with that?

    just installed it last night, it took around 6minutes... I was impressed with the speed!

    I used the ISO that I downloaded from MS home use program.

    Installed on 2.9ghz/15inch/512gb ssd mbp and did not get any error msgs...

    download win 10 from MS
    download bootcamp support files from apple
    use rufus.exe to build a bootable usb-stick ( GPT format !! )
    make a partition for windows an your mac
    connect an external usb keyboard and mouse with your macbook pro late 2016
    boot from the usb-stick and install windows on the partition created

    Is it possible to enable the function keys on a Macbook Pro 2016 TB before the OS loads?

    Just a heads up: I think you should delay your bootcamp installation. There seems to be an issue with one of the audio drivers that causes the speaker to blow.

    this was fixed by a boot camp update (stated in an other thread)

    Is this 100% confirmed to fix the problem?

    I'm a bit nervous about installing on my 13" (although I believe the issue was limited to 15" models?).

    Option(Alt) pressed on boot-time
    then select the efi-boot stick ( thats why you should format it GPT )

    i made everything you mentioned in your previous post but when I get to the stage where I have to choose where to install windows it shows me nothing/no drive. I formatted part of the SSD in NTFS in MacOS as you said. what am I doing wrong? bootcamp windows installation still does not work as I get a bluescreen when bootcamp finished installing and restarts the machine to boot into windows.

    I installed Windows 10 by creating a "windows to go" USB installer and then installing that to an external USB3.1 drive.

    Works very well.

    I did have an issue in that when it had installed and was wanting to set up the installation I couldn't use the keyboard or trackpad (no drivers), so I had to plug in an external keyboard which allowed me to complete the installation.

    Once I'd done that I used the keyboard to install the bootcamp drivers (which I'd got from bootcamp assistant) and once they were installed it all worked great.

    Doesn't consume any space on the internal drive and I can boot windows by holding down option on power up.

    Plus I can use both file vault and bit locker together.

    So you just booted from the USB drive when you boot up the macbook?

    I've been having problems installing windows 10 on the 2016 MBP. The whole bootcamp process goes fine until when the MBP reboots and goes into windows, it says i'm missing the winload.efi file. Anyone else encounter this issue?

    Yes. I'm not installing it using boot camp, I just make use of the drivers.

    I used the wintousb application which is free with the ISO downloaded from microsofts site and imaged that onto my external drive and then booted straight off it after holding down option.

    Windows then finishes up the installation and that's when I had to use an external keyboard to get through the final parts and install the boot camp drivers.

    Could you please describe your installation process point by point ? -- may be we can find out - what could have been gone wrong.

    As I said, I'm not using boot camp. I specifically want to boot windows from a USB drive so that my MacOS system remains untouched.

    I just followed the instructions here:

    http://www.easyuefi.com/wintousb/faq/en_US/How-to-use-WinToUSB-ISO-To-USB.html

    You do however need a working windows machine or a virtual machine running windows to run wintousb.

    Just got it working guys. Downloaded the original Windows 10 iso from the Microsoft download page. Seems that my iso image was broken. I used Boot Camp with the iso from Microsoft and now it's working!

    no issues so far. no crackling or anything. I think it got fixed with the boot camp update.
