Question: Bootcamped Win 10 is not starting - hard drive not found

I installed Win 10 on iMac 27" 2017. Frist run was fine, BC drivers were installed, apart from Magic Mouse 2 and numerical part of my Magic Keyboard.


I transferred Windows apps etc. from my Win 7 running on MacBook Pro 2010 and form installing Win updated I restarted my machine. The result was Recovery Screen. There was no help going back to one of the recovery points, it ended up with restart loop.


I decided to Return to Factory Settings. That was fine and I installed my BootCamp drivers manually from USB drive. I checked Apple Updated and installed latest Wifi and Graphics drivers. As I was asked, I restarted my machine. And the very same result.


Scanning my drive for fixable errors during pointed me to log files (SrtTrail.txt). Once opened in macOS, it shows following:


"

I'm able to run Win Safe mode and install drivers (if they are exe files) and browse my BootCamp drive on macOS. So there is no chance, that my drive is not connected.

iMac, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3), null

Answer:
Answer:

Depending on how you 'moved' W7 applications, you seem to have corrupted the drivers. I suggest removing/re-installing W10 and then re-installing the W10 equivalents of the W7 applications, instead of 'moving' any from your 2010 Mac.

Well, I used moving app recommended by Microsoft. I unticked any drivers.

Restarting to Factory Settings left my Win10 with no traces of BootCamp drivers.

And without moving any single byte from my MBP 2010, the result is the same.
