Installing windows 10 from a USB

Chewbacca

Hi, 

 

im trying to install windows 10 from a USB and it just won't boot to the USB. Is this because Im using a Mac to put the windows 10 onto? 

 

Thanks,

You can't just copy the Windows ISO onto the USB and boot from it. you need to use software to make a bootable version. I use an old windows 7 USB boot tool that works with 10 too.

You need to use a third party utility to make the USB drive bootable.

 

I've been using Win32 Disk Imager for when I have to make bootable drives, you might have to find something else since you're on a Mac.
