Could you tell us which partitioning tool you are using to partition this disk? Windows Disk Management tool or other third-party partitioning tool? We recommend using built-in Windows Disk Management to partition the disk.

In theory, as long as there is a FAT32 partition on a GPT disk, then the disk will appear as a EFI boot option.


im not using a hub. The Samsung T3 is directly to either one of the USB 3 inputs on the MacBook Pro. I've tried both.

im using the computer management program in Windows 10 to do the partitioning. 

Win2go is happy that I have an efi partition 100mb with FAT32 and also the other large partition is NTFS as per instructions. Win2Go finishes putting Windows on the t3 drive. I do all of this on Windows 10 (I've done it on two different Windows machines. One was running Windows 7 and the other Windows 10. There was no difference in outcome)

On putting the drive back into the usb3 slot on the MacBook Pro 2015 and holding Alt/option key I only see the internal mac drive as a boot option no matter what I do..
