    I'm trying to install Windows 10 Home. It came with a little flash drive containing both 32 bit and 64 bit versions.

    So, I tried using Disk utility to create a ISO image. Bootcamp doesn't like it.

    It is Bootcamp Assistant 5.1, btw. Can't find bootcamp Assistant 6, so I assume it doesn't exist on the mac side.

    So, any help?

    Bootcamp doesn't like the 32/64-bit combo installer.
    Just go to Microsoft and download the ISO file for Windows 10 64-bit only.
    Use that with Bootcamp instead of your little flash drive.

    Thought ai'd also mention that Windows 10 has trouble installing when external drives are present... Had to turn them off to get windows to format a boot partition. This seems to be a rather old bug, too.
