Download the Windows 10 ISO file to install on the Mac

Step 1: Download the Windows 10 64-bit version file from the Windows website.

Run the Boot Camp program

Step 2: Once the ISO file is downloaded, run Boot Camp Assistant. You can find this program under Applications then Utilities.

Step 3: Click the Choose button next to the ISO image.

Step 4: Select Boot Camp partition space to install Windows 10. Be sure to save space for Mac OS. The amount of division is up to you. If you want to install various programs and games on Windows, you need more space.

Step 5: After selecting the ISO file and dividing the storage space, click on Install. The Boot Camp program downloads Windows backup and installs some Windows files. After that, you need to enter your Mac password. Mac OS will then restart and you will be taken to the Windows installation screen.
