Question: Macbook stuck on getting windows ready

I have a late 2013 Macbook Pro. I'm trying to install Windows 10 pro. I'm using BCA once the install USB and partitions are created the MBP reboots and installs. After another reboot the MBP gets stuck on the getting ready screen. After about 15 minutes on the getting screen the MBP seems to freeze. Any idea as to what's causing this?

How long has it been sitting on this screen? If 1607 does not work, can you try release 1511?

Hello LT

Here are a couple of things i have tried.


Win10 1607

Win10 1703

Win10 1709


(All isos were downloaded using a wired ethernet connection)

Usb drives

Memorex 16GB 2.0

Lexar 8GB 2.0

Kingston datatraveler 3.0

Deleted all drive partitions and reinstalled OSX mavericks

Update to High Sierra

Created partition using BCA

Created partition using just Disk Utility

Created USB installer using BCA

Created USB installer using Rufus on Windows


Reset SMC

Installed using windows 10 support assistant drivers

Also tried Windows 10 usb with windows 7 boot camp drivers

Deleted all partitions on SSD and tried installing only Win10 on the computer

I can get through the windows installer wizard and the computer reboots it and gets stuck at at getting ready

Leaving the USB installer connected or removing after final install reboot results in the same thing

It's been on the windows logo for about a hour now. Just started download for Win10 1511.

Will update you once download is complete. Are the partitions created during the windows install step in the 3rd screenshot correct?
