    I have someone with an existing PC, they have a new iMac, there are still some things they need the Windows environment for, and want to copy their existing Win 10 directly over to Bootcamp.

    For some reason, Windows 10 doesn't actually let me make an full backup ISO - it only offers to make me a recovery disc, but only with a CD (WTF? Is this 1997?), so, I need a way to make a backup ISO of the Win 10 install which I could point Bootcamp to when setting it up.

    Don't suppose anyone knows a way to do this? Not averse to paid for software it it makes life easy...

    Do a system image of Windows 10 using the backup utility, install Windows 10 on your Mac using Bootcamp with the same partition size and apply the system image backup to the fresh install.
