    Hi,

    I was having some problems so decided to do a fresh install of OS 10.14 on Mac Pro 5,1. I completely wiped the drive and did a clean install on an my existing SSD formatted to AFPS. It is currently sitting in PCI slot. I then tried to run boot camp assistant but the error is that this can not be used. This Mac does not support Bootcamp. I read about some problems with 27 inch iMac but not for Mac Pro. I planned to install windows on on a separate SDD in Drive bay 1. Any ideas?

    Even If you managed to install bootcamp it would be in legacy mode... Try installing in EFI mode through the boot picker and an install USB. But you still have to go from the Windows bootcamp control panel through the boot picker (or next loader) or through an HFS drive selected from the bootcamp control panel in Windows back to your APFS at least if/until Apple comes up with an APFS driver for Windows

    Bootcamp Assistant will not run on Mojave with the Mac Pro, but you don't need it anyway. The easiest way to install Windows is from a Windows installer DVD (you can make easily from Microsoft downloaded iso file) if you have a video card that gives you a boot screen. Do you have that?
