    Hi,

    Just to explain what I have been up today so you have some background:

    • Installed a new 512GB SSD in to my iMac 27" Late 2012
    • Ran Recovery HD to re-install OS X Yosemite
    • Used CCC to restore my previous OS X Yosemite installation
    • Started BootCamp Assistant to create my Windows Partition
    • Used a WinClone image to restore my previous Windows installation
    • ALL GOOD SO FAR! :)

    • Mac OS X boots without any problems
    • As does Windows if I use ALT to select it from BOOT or RESTART
    • However... BootCamp does not show in my Start Up Disk
    • When I use ALT at start up Windows is listed as EFI PARTITION

    • If I run diskutil list I get:

      /dev/disk0

      #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
      0: GUID_partition_scheme *512.1 GB disk0
      1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
      2: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD 391.3 GB disk0s2
      3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3
      4: Microsoft Basic Data BOOTCAMP 120.0 GB disk0s4


    • BUT if I run sudo fdisk -e /dev/disk0

      I get:

      fdisk: could not open MBR file /usr/standalone/i386/boot0: No such file or directory
      Enter 'help' for information
      fdisk: 1> p

      4: 00 0 0 0 - 0 0 0 [ 0 - 0] unused

    I used to have a 1TB drive before the 512GB SSD... is this what I am seeing from the FDISK P?

    How can I resolve this so that it matches DISKUTIL LIST?

    I also want to do the following:

    • Be able to see BootCamp in Start Up Disk
    • Using ALT on boot up see Windows listed and not EFI PARTITION
    Help me please! :)

    Thanks
    Jon

    Sorry... to add... if it helps! :)

    My original OS X "Macintosh HD" was an external Thunderbolt connected SSD and BootCamp was installed on the internal 1TB HDD....
