    IMAc Pro (2017) - macOS High Sierra. By starting Windows 10 I get a screen: "Trying to boot from SATA drive 1", and nothing happens. Can I. get some help to solve this? Thanks.

    Hello InigoL Kindly follow the below mentioned steps and check if it helps.
    1) Shut down the virtual machine using Actions > Stop menu.
    2) Press cogwheel button near the virtual machine's name to open its configuration or right-click on virtual machine's name > Configure...
    3) Switch to 'Hardware' tab and then select Boot Order from the list of devices.
    4) Expand Advanced settings drop-down menu and paste the following system flag:- vm.bios.efi=1

    Hi Aj, I´ve followed the four steps. It didn´t help. I get the same warning (see File) and I cannot go on.
    Thanks

    After changing the flag for: vm.bios.efi=1 (instead of: - vm.bios.efi=1)
    I get a new message:
    "Esta máquina virtual no tiene instalado ningún sistema operativo"

    Please follow this article to locate the virtual machine file on the Mac (it is a file with the extension '.pvm'). Once you see it, take note of its size and reply with the same.

    Kindly let us know whether you tried < vm.bios.efi=0 > in the boot flag, if no then please try this boot flag and check if it helps.
