If You Need to Uninstall

1. Launch the Terminal app.

2. Copy and paste the code shown below:

sudo rm -r /Library/Extensions/OWCDualBootEnabler.kext/

3. Press Return.

4. When prompted, enter your administrator password, then press Return again.

5. Once the process is complete, you can quit the Terminal app.

Troubleshooting:

If the Dual Boot Enabler is not installed and you attempt to go through with the installation, you may see a warning message similar to the one shown below in red, and the System Report will incorrectly identify the type of drive you are installing the system to (green).

Once the Dual Boot Enabler has been installed, when you reach the same stage of the Boot Camp Assistant's Windows install, no warning message is present and the Aura SSD will be correctly identified.
