    Hi I have a Mac pro 1,1 updated to 2,1 firmware Also has an HD5770 I want to be able to use boot camp to install Windows 10, I run El Cap and Lion is there a Way to get this to work? the things I have read seem to suggest it is impossible due to because of the GT 7300 video card, anyways if someone knows how to work around this that would be great. I do currently have windows 10 installed via the VM ware exploit but would like to be able to switch around OS via button click not just option key

    The hardware will support Windows 10. The challenge is the installation, since you cannot boot the installer from USB on this version of EFI. Look around on the web for various ways folks have worked around it.
    I ended up modifying a Windows 7 install DVD, so it would boot all that way and latter upgrading to Windows 10, when it came out. You did need another Windows system to perform the modification.

    So I have windows 10 installed, I used the modified VMfusion to install it, My issue is getting OS X to recognize it so I don't have to use the command key to boot into windows
