    Hi, I'm new to these forms been lurking around the FC book page but no one can seem to help me. Can someone help/guide me through installing win 10 64 bit on a mac pro 3,1?

    The things I have done.
    Made a win 10 iso USB key
    Made a win 10 boot disc (actually got to the win 10 logo and then it will blue screen and say I/O error and that storage has be removed)
    Used an OFC win 7 boot disc (actually like 4) boot camp/ the computer won't recognize them(I think its because its a dual-layer disc and I'm using the old super drive)
    Use an OFC windows XP disc (got really desperate there didn't work though)
    If some one can help me that would be great

    life is simple if you dont use bootcamp and just instal via DVD on to a dedcated SSD.
    grab bootcamp drivers and put them on a usb stick
    pull all drives apart from the windows SSD
    boot from DVD and instal on to windows SSD
    instal bootcamp drivers and update GPU driver etc
    re install all drives

    this is the gude for the mp 4.1/5.1 worth a quick look

    I think you extrapolated something that was not intended.
