Learn how to install Windows 10 to your Apple computer (Macbook, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, iMac, etc.) using Boot Camp Assistant. This tutorial will guide you through all the steps to partition your hard drive, install Windows 10, and select which OS to boot.
In this tutorial, I’m running macOS High Sierra but the procedure should be the same for earlier versions of MacOS.
Install Windows 10 to Mac
1. Download the Windows 10 ISO file directly from the official Microsoft website here:
2. Select the Windows 10 Anniversary Update edition and select your language.
3. Download the 64-bit file.
4. Open Finder and go to Applications > Utilities > Boot Camp Assistant
5. Press Continue
6. Make sure the ISO file you downloaded is selected under ISO image, then decide your partition (how you want to split your hard drive storage between macOS and Windows 10 – this cannot be changed later), and press Install
7. Boot Camp Assistant will begin installing Windows 10 to your Mac
Your computer will restart and begin the Windows 10 setup. After setup is complete, make sure you install Boot Camp when prompted to during initial launch.
Whenever you turn on or restart your computer, it will boot in macOS unless you change it. To change OS when turning on your computer, hold the Option key on your keyboard when the computer starts up and you will be given to option to select which OS to load.
Change Default OS
To select which OS to boot whenever you turn on your computer, launch in macOS and go to Launchpad > System Preferences > Startup Disk > and select which OS you want to use to start up your computer.
