MacOS has always been considered to be one of the most secure and well-updated operating systems in the world. Apple has always been adding new features and improvements to make its desktop OS more attractive. This year, Apple’s desktop operating system has got a brand new name, MacOS Sierra and comes with tons of promising features.
However, no matter how hard Apple has been trying, Microsoft’s Windows remains the most popular operating system. Windows 10 has taken Microsoft’s operating system to a new level with many wonderful features. For Mac users, there are times when they want to experience Microsoft’s latest Windows version. Luckily, there is software by Apple called Boot Camp Assistant that allows you to install Windows 10 right on your Mac, eliminating the need for a new Windows PC.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Windows 10 on your Mac using Boot Camp.
Here is how you install Windows 10 on Mac with Boot Camp
Before getting started, make sure you have backed up all of your files to the external hard drive using Time Machine so that you can restore them in case anything goes wrong. If you have not done it yet, do it first.
Note: Make sure that you have at least 30 GB of free hard drive space on your Mac, Genuine Windows 10 product key, a 16GB USB flash drive and a Windows 10 ISO file.
Here we go.
Step 1: Open Boot Camp Assistant on your Mac.
Step 2: Check the boxes next to Create a Windows 7 or later version install disk and Install Windows 7 or later version under the “Select Tasks” window.
Step 3: Connect your USB flash drive with your Mac, select your Windows 10 ISO file and click Continue.
Step 4: At the prompt, click Continue again.
Step 5: Wait until all the required Windows files and Boot Camp drivers have been transferred to your USB drive. This step could take a while.
Step 6: Once it is done, you will be asked to create a Windows partition. All you need to do is to select a minimum of 30GB for Windows 10 and select Install button.
Step 7: Boot Camp Assistant will create a partition on your Mac and your device should automatically reboot.
Step 8: On restart, you will notice the Windows setup screen.
Step 9: Enter your product key and select your Boot Camp created partition, and then follow the step-by-step instructions to install Windows 10.
Step 10: Once it is done, you can see the Windows 10 desktop on your Mac.
Step 11: While you are in desktop, install Boot Camp drivers for your Mac. These are the drivers which were transferred to your USB drive in the step 5. All you have to do is run setup.exe to install all the required drivers.
Step 12: Once you have installed the drivers, your computer will reboot. Once it is done, you will have full Windows 10 functions on your Mac.
That’s it! From now you can switch between Windows 10 and Mac by pressing and holding option/alt key.
