How to Download Windows 10 on Mac

Microsoft’s new operating system Windows 10 has been officially released last year, and pushed upgrade in the 190 markets all around the year. Windows 10 release is not just a Windows user’s own carnival, but also Mac users’ carnival. Do not ridicule, it is said there are 1/3 of the Mac install the Windows system. System is to use for people, as long as users are happy with a good hand, both  Windows and OS X are the same.

Different from Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users, Mac users can not receive the Windows 10 automatic push, also can not from other channels to upgrade Windows 10 operating system. It does not matter, we can figure this out.

There are two ways to download Windows 10 on  Mac. The first is to use virtual software, such as Parallels 10 to achieve download and installation. The second is to use Boot Camp to install. Next we will see which one is more suitable for you.

Virtual software such as Parallels 10 allows us to test and run the Windows 10 operating system directly without installing the system directly on the device, which is one of its advantages. The disadvantage of this approach is that the performance of the system on the virtual software is not as good as the performance of the direct installation on the device, because the system and the device are separated by a layer of virtual software.

This time,I would introduce Boot Camp to you.

The first step,  open the Boot Camp> Launchpad > Boot Camp Assistant, and open the application. The installation wizard will give you options which automatically help you choose so that you can go directly to the next step. That is the ISO version you want. Make sure you choose the Windows 10 ISO file you just downloaded.

Next, Boot Camp Assistant will configure the USB flash drive and automatically copy all the correct files. This process takes some time, it depends on how fast your USB flash memory is. At the end of this step, you will be asked to enter the user password and add the necessary files to the installation media.

When the Boot Camp Assistant asks you to allocate storage space to install Windows 10, it will defaults to a 50:50 ratio which is ideal, and if you use Windows frequently, it is also profitable to install other software.

If you do not like this allocation ratio, you can also adjust the partition. Just keep in mind that in a partition created by Boot Camp, Windows 10 requires 20GB of free storage at least . My suggestion is that provides the best space to 2 times if you intend to use Windows 10 in the long term.
