Following up here in case someone finds this but not the other thread...


The workaround found in the thread linked by Loner T works great!

Key points:

  1. download iMac bootcamp package using a 3rd party tool (brigadier), specifying model "iMacPro1,1"
  2. mount the downloaded WindowsSupport.dmg file in OSX and extract "BootCamp/Drivers/Apple/BootCamp.msi"
  3. put BootCamp.msi on a thumbdrive or some other place your Windows can find it & reboot into Windows
  4. Use 7-zip to open BootCamp.msi and extract "Apple/Apple Control Panel.exe"
  5. replace that file in "c:\Windows\System32"


That's it! Just that one file needs to be replaced.


Special note for anyone using Parallels or VMWare Fusion to run your bootcamp partition while in OSX: the option to reboot to OSX does not appear while running the partition as a VM. It shows up just fine when booted natively.
