For a new installation of Windows 10 Creators Update on an Apple Mac using Boot Camp, you must first install the Windows 10 Anniversary Update using the ISO file, and then update to Windows 10 Creators Update.
If you try to do a clean install of the Creators Update, you will get a Stop error with the code 0xc000000f in winload.efi.
To clean install Windows 10 in Boot Camp, first download the Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISO:
- From your Mac, go to https://www.microsoft.com/software-download/windows10
Note The download site detects what Operating System you are using, and will only give you the correct options to do this if you go to the site from a Mac.
- Review the information under Before you begin, and how to create installation media.
- Under Select Edition, choose the Windows 10 Anniversary Update that matches your edition.
- Press Confirm.
Install Windows 10 using the Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISO media. You can find more info here.
After Windows 10 is installed, you will be offered the Creators Update as a normal part of the Windows Update process, or you can trigger the update manually by booting into Windows 10, visiting the Windows 10 download site and choosing “Update Now”.
If you already attempted to install the Creators Update and see the Stop error with the code 0xc000000f, you will need to use Boot Camp Assistant to remove the Windows partition using the steps found here.
