    Bootcamp requires a single partition to work. The first step you need to do, is merge those two partitions, then start bootcamp.

    These two partitions can't be merged since the computer has 2 drives - a fusion drive and a regular HDD drive

    My bad, I missed the cropped portion of the image showing two drives, not a single drive with two partitions

    Perhaps you should eject & unplug the additional external hard disk (both are named "Macintosh HD" ??) and try again with just the internal Fusion drive active.

    That is not an external hard drive - the computer itself has 2 hard drives.

    OK ... so you have 3 physical disks inside your iMac? 2 hard disks and the SSD?

    Which model iMac do you have?
