Question: An error occurred while partitioning the disk

Hi there. I am receiving the error "An error occurred while partitioning the disk" while trying to install Win10 (downloaded from the Microsoft website) via bootcamp.

I had this exact problem before, however eventually while troubleshooting a hundred times it just "worked" (nothing specific I did seemed to have caused this as I ran through the troubleshooting steps I was given in the thread I made that time, and after doing it a hundred times it worked.. ha)

I deleted my BC partition because I needed to make it larger and reinstall Windows, and once again I have been given this error while it attempts to partition.

I have run disc utility (all good), gone through Single User Mode and went through /sbin/fsck -fy ... all that.

This is my initial thread, the last time this exact problem happened: "An error occurred while partitioning the disk. Please run Disk Utility to check and fix the error."

I've been at this for days again to no avail.

Any thoughts? Much appreciated.
