    I have purchased a windows 10 product key from Microsoft in order to run windows 10 on my macbook pro 13" without retina display but have have come to nothing but failure. Once I purchased the product key I went on to the Microsoft website and downloaded the windows 10 ISO file, then I opened bootcamp and tried to create a usb install disk with windows 10. I keep getting the same error: "your bootable USB drive could not be created. Boot camp only supports Windows 7 or later installation on this platform. Please use an ISO file for windows 7 or later installation." Which however does not make sense since I am using a windows 10 ISO from Microsoft's website. I also tried to mount the ISO file to a DVD but the mac operating system would not let me do that. Anybody have a solution to my problem?
    Thanks - Lucas

    What year is your MBP? It needs to be 2012 or newer for Bootcamp support of Windows 10.

    My MacBook Pro is 2012. I have ran boot camp on it before. I ran Windows 7 a year ago in it.
