Question: bootcamp partition missing in start volume

Hi,


I have Windows 10 installed via Bootcamp and (I guess) starting with MacOS Sierra, Windows didn't show up in mac os anymore. That is for instance in the 'start volume' system settings. I just want to select it as standard boot volume, so I don't have to press alt during the boot sequence. The Boot Camp Assistant tells me that it will remove the partition, but that's not what I want.

I can hold alt and boot into windows and use it without problems.

I use tuxera ntfs to access the partition from mac os - no problems either.

Sometimes Tuxera tells me it cannot mount the volume because it is hibernated, which is certainly not true, I always shut down windows and reboot. (Might be another issue).


All I want is to select Windows as start volume so I can reboot and get a coffee instead waiting a minute or so to hold alt and select Windows.


Here is a diskutil and fdisk output just in case:

Answer:
Answer:

What is the year/model of your Mac (do not post the serial number)? Tuxera will interfere with the System Preferences -> Startup Disks, because Apple does not allow third-party drivers to control the NTFS volume and boot from it.


Also, see Frequently Asked Questions - Tuxera under

Apple does not allow any volumes that are mounted with third party file system drivers to appear in the “Startup Disk” preference pane. This is hard coded, and something that we cannot change.

It's an iMac 2017 - I used this setup with tuxera for such a long time (even with the iMac 2013 before) and I am pretty sure it worked when I first set this up 8 months ago. But yea - tuxera is the reason windows doesn't show up in the "startup disk" preference pane anymore. Thanks.

You will temporarily need to disable SIP. Boot into Local Recovery (Reboot and hold Command+R), click on Utilities -> Terminal, and run


csrutil status

csrutil disable

csrutil status


Now boot normally and re-run the FDisk command.
