I want to create a bootable Windows USB from my Macbook manually as an alternative to Bootcamp.

  1. I've downloaded the Windows 10 ISO file.
  2. Formatted an 8GB USB with MS-DOS(FAT) with a Master Boot Record Scheme within Disk Utility.
  3. Question: Can I now finally mount the .ISO and copy it's contents to the USB?

Please don't reference to Bootcamp in your answers.

  • Can I assume this is to install Windows on a 2012 for newer Mac? Mar 25 '16 at 8:48
  • Yes it's a 2015 MacBook Pro
