    Trying to install Windows on my MBP.
    First question is will it take Windows 10? I'm thinking not, because Boot Camp assistant only mentions 7 or 8 on the install window.
    So far I have created the software on a memory stick.
    I've downloaded W8 64bit and mounted the ISO on the desktop.
    When I run BCA it does everything then tells me it cannot find the installer for W8.
    What is happening and what do I need to do to make it install?
    Thanks.

    Your MacBook Pro has an optical drive, and so Bootcamp requires a windows disc not on a memory stick.
