My Boot Camp assistant seems to be having problems (first I get not enough space, 40 GB, etc.) which I fixed by making a partition using Disk Utility, but then I didn't get an option that others seem to get to Create a usb bootable drive for windows 7 or later. It right away asked for the ISO and started downloading Windows support software, took forever, and then said there wasn't enough space on the partition (there was).
Without Boot Camp, I tried using
dd and that didn't work and just reformatting the USB drive to exFAT (FAT32 didn't seem to work, because the October 2018 update has a file over 4 GB, meanwhile I'm downloading April 2018). What happens is that once I boot up the PC, change the boot order and then select the drive, it just goes back to some VMware kernel OS that was still on it when I got the PC. I've tried running in legacy mode, secure boot is disabled.
Does anyone have any alternatives I could use?
Also I tried plugging the usb (formatted exFAT in to my mac and it seems to recognize it in the boot menu, so I'm starting to think it's something with my motherboard/bios settings).
