    Hi guys

    2013 Macbook Pro Retina. 500gb, 16gb. El Capitan.
    Created 100gb partition for Windows.

    Wanted to install Win10 pro just to play with. Used boot camp, following step by step with a Windows Central writeup. Jeez. Should not be this hard. FINALLY got it to begin the install. Looks like it runs the whole thing, then the following pops up, and it is dead in the water. Same result 2 times. Happens at what looks like the end...

    Appreciate any help,

    How did you create your Windows partition?
    Does the solution in this thread help?
    It's for Windows 8 but if the partition is the problem then the solution should still fix it.

    After much trial and error, mostly errors, I was able to install Win10Pro. I used the bootcamp approach for the entire install, with one addition.

    After bootcamp created the partition, the machine rebooted. I immediately reset the NVRAM with the Command-Option-R-P press, let the system reboot 3 times, and the install went smoothly from there. No errors.

    YMMV,
    Michael
