It might seem a joke to you but it is true that one can install Windows 10 on an Apple Mac.

But as Windows 10 is in its Technical form only, it houses plenty of bugs and that can be risky. That is why installing Windows 10 technical preview (TP) directly on the primary memory of one's laptops or PC hasn't been recommended by Windows.

One can install Windows 10 TP on a virtual machine on which no bug would affect the hardware or OS X installation.

But if you are taking the risk, here is how you can install Windows 10 technical preview on a Mac.

Note: Don't forget to backup your important data before taking the step.

Installing Windows 10 TP on Apple Mac

There are two good ways by which you can install Windows 10 technical preview on your Mac device.

1. Using Apple's Boot Camp tool.

2. Using Parallels Desktop.

Parallel's Desktop is popular as it supports better Windows and Mac integration. But it costs about $80 which isn't cheap!

So let's discuss about installing Windows 10 preview on a Mac using Apple's Boot Camp tool.

Installing Windows 10 Preview on a Mac using Boot Camp

As Boot Camp is an in-built free tool in case of Mac, it is a good alternative over Parallels Desktop.

Before going further, I assume that you have got the ISO of Windows 10. If you haven't downloaded it yet or still don't know how to download Windows 10 ISO, click here to get started.

You can jot down the activation key for your ISO direct from here.

So below are the easy steps to get Windows 10 direct on your Apple Mac:

1. Get a 4GB or bigger storage USB drive.

2. Run the Boot Camp tool.

3. Check all the options and click "Continue".

4. Now it is time to insert the USB drive.

5. After inserting, select the ISO file location.

6. Boot Camp will take the ISO and transform your USB drive into a boot disk.
Don't worry as the transformation is not physical.

7. Now you need to partition your HDD. Windows 10 can pack up in 20GB free space but 30GB is ideal.

8. Next, click "Install". Windows 10 is now being installed. And like with all any OS installations, your Mac will reboot several times.

Wait until you yourself say, "Wow! It is really Windows 10 on Mac".


Windows 10 works fine on Mac but overall, it is a risk. Though it was a great time,
