    Hi all,

    I've just received my new 15'' mbp 2016, due to no stock I can't find any usb a-c adapter.

    Is there anyway I can install the windows iso into the mbp's hd to install the bootcamp then remove that iso partition?

    The latest Bootcamp Assistant on newer Macs does not use or need a USB stick to install Windows. It creates a temporary partition on which it puts the windows installer and Bootcamp drivers, and deletes this partition at the end.

    More about this here and in the Bootcamp Assistant instructions.

    TIP don't have any externals connected while doing the install.

    Yeah I was so shocked about that when I learned that first hand however I think I had a problem with the ISO I was using so had to switch to a different ISO.

    To calrify, I was using windows 10 Education Key, with Windows 10 ISO (Everything, which was inaccurate) I needed a windows 10 Education Separate Iso.

    I'm having something like this on the boot up, but I can't even press F8 because the touch bar isn't showing anything.
