Over the years, I have used Mac OS, and I always wished I could install Windows 10. I found an effective way to install windows 10 on Mac without Bootcamp or other tools!
I will demonstrate how to install Windows 10 on your Mac OS device in this blog post. We have a step-by-step guide that you can follow in less than an hour.
I would like to start the discussion with some questions. Windows 10 Installation on a Mac – is it possible? Do you know how to install Windows 10 on Mac OS? Is there a long list of requirements
All these questions will be answered by me. Windows can be installed on a Mac operating system.
Step 1: Create Bootable USB drive using Wonder ISO
Download the WonderISO program on your computer. Windows and Mac are all available. After installation, launch it.
Connect your USB drive or internal hard drive to the computer or laptop where WonderISO was installed. Then click the “Burn” option to enter the BURN Windows, import your Windows 10 ISO file by clicking the Browse button, and select UEFI+GPT mode. Make sure the System file is FAT 32, then click the “Burn” button to start.
A bootable USB will take you a few minutes to create, don’t disconnect your USB when burning as it potentially destroys your partitions and data. When it shows Burning Successfully, eject your USB drive.
Step 2: How to partition your disk with Disk Utility
Partitioning your drive is a crucial step because it determines where your Windows OS will be installed, and we don’t recommend installing Windows on the same partition as macOS.
- Open Disk Utility, click on the Partition button next to the local drive (HDD or SSD).
- The first step is to click on the small “+” sign, then you need to select the size of your new partition. It should at least 30 GB. You can name it anything
as you want, and make sure the format is set to MS-DOS (FAT), then click apply.
Step 3: Boot Mac with a USB Drive
By default, Macs boot from an internal hard drive or SSD. Booting from the USB drive is required to begin the Windows OS installation on Mac without Boot Camp. However, this is a simple process
You must disconnect all USB devices except the USB drive containing Windows ISO files and the wired keyboard.
You may now restart your computer while pressing the Option (Alt) key. When the Apple logo appears after about 10 seconds, you will be presented with several boot options.
In Part 2, you set up the drive. Now pick it up. EFI Boot is the default name if you did not change it.
Step 4: Install Windows 10 on your Mac
When your Mac can boot from a USB drive properly, you will see the Windows Setup Wizard, prompting you to select a drive to install Windows. Select the right partition previously created, then click Next.
Next, select the Language, region, and Keyboard, then click “Next.”
Using the Install button, you can begin installing Windows 10 on your selected partition. Installing Windows 10 on a Mac requires a few restarts, and the standard Windows 10 installation procedure should be followed.
When you’re on this step, the installation wizard prompts you to enter the product key to activate your Windows 10 OS. If you’ve purchased a product key, then enter it into the box. Otherwise, you can do it later.
Once your MacBook initially boots into Windows OS, you may find your mouse and keyboard don’t work because it lacks drivers. So, installing drivers is essential to ensuring Windows running normally.
To do that, you can previously download the BootCamp to the USB drive, then install the Bootcamp on your Windows, and it will install the necessary drivers, such as “Wi-Fi or Internet, Graphic, Sound, Mouse, etc..”
Or you can download the BootCamp software from this official apple website. Once all drivers are installed completely, then restart your MacBook!
Now, your Windows 10 should work fine on your Macbook when running externally.
Windows is definitely not easy to install on a Mac without BootCamp. So that you can complete this task efficiently, we have put everything in place.
The key is how to create a bootable Windows USB from the Mac internal drive. I hope you learned how to install windows 10 on Mac without Bootcamp.
