MP 6,1 Boot Camp doesn't work, windows cannot be installed

I tried to format my SSD drive serval times, degraded the system to osx 10.13.6 and managed to keep the disk format as HFS+ in order to install windows 10. But every time I install the windows 10 through Boot Camp, it doesn't boot windows installation and creates an empty Boot Camp partition.

I even tried to make a bootable device for windows 10, but startup manager failed to detect my USB stick.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Ah your on a mac pro 6.1, sorry I missed that when i first replied.

That link was for an older mac pro windows instal, i don't know about the mac pro 6.1 so someone else will have to chime in.

I have only done it on a mac pro 5.1 which is very different
