    Sorry, I'm not sure I understand what I'm supposed to do.

    From MacOs in BCA.
    I chose the option to download the support software, and it insisted on putting it all on a USB stick (without stating a reason). The USB stick is not bootable, so I don't know what to do with it now. Was something more supposed to happen in BCA?

    I only have three options there. Create install media, download support software, or remove Windows.

    Everything is in the Apple Support forums.
    I couldn't find any mentions of installing the support software from macOS or from outside Windows in the thread you linked. Did I miss it?


    Are the nvidia drivers no longer the culprit?

    Download and install Windows support software on your Mac - Apple Support
    https://www.reddit.com/r/bootcamp/
    Blinking Cursor when booting Windows 10 o - Apple Community
    Bootcamp boot -> black screen Blink … - Apple Community

    These are a start for you to understand that you are going to have to look at this as if it was a problem with something inside of Mac OS not the other way around which it is a Mac hardware problem with Windows 10. Again why I do not mix the two together. Otherwise you end up up a huge Migraine.

    The links you mentioned didn't give any indication to me that it is even possible to install the support software from outside Windows, let alone instructions on how to do it.

    The Apple article says I should start explorer inside Windows. The two forum threads discuss partition tables and resizing operations, and bootrec command that I've already run.

    None of them explained in what way this has anything to do with macOS.

    Story, I don't see how they relate to your mentions of installing the support software from the bootcamp assistant / to a non booting Windows.

    I would welcome any specific thread or guide that says it's possible and demonstrates how to do it.

    If there are no more suggestions on repair procedures that are actually possible to perform, then I want to thank everyone for their suggestions as I write the installation off as unsalvageable. Thanks!
