    It's probably something stupid, but its driving me nuts. I've been doing the following:

    1. Open Boot Camp Assistant

    2. Choose an ISO file of Windows 10 that I bought and downloaded from Microsoft.

    3. Choose the size of the 2 partitions.

    4. Click Install and it downloads the support software.

    5. After doing that it auto-restarts.

    6. I assume it's supposed to boot into Windows mode here, but instead it boots into the Mac partition again.

    7. The BOOTCAMP partition doesn't have any data, and I can't find any way to continue the installation (i.e. restarting while holding Alt only shows the one partition).

    I've tried this a few times but it keeps doing this. It's especially annoying since it insists on downloading the support software on its own every time.
