I'm trying to install Windows10 on my old MBP (Model: MacBookPro10,1). I prepared a USB-Stick formatted as FAT32 with a MBR. I followed this documentation (https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/bootcamp-assistant/bcmp09f5f773/6.1/mac/10.14) and Step 4 says:

At the Select Tasks step, select all the tasks, then click Continue.

But in my case, the last task is not available. What do I need to do?

I'm running macOS Mojave Version 10.14.6 (all updates are installed) on that machine.

Update: diskutil list cli output

$>diskutil list
/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):

  • I added that to your question. That is strange. I have no idea, but it would be a good idea to add the output of "diskutil list" to your original question. That might help. Jul 9, 2020 at 23:26
  • @SteveChambers thanks for improving the question. I also added diskutil list output.

  • 1) How did you manage to upgrade to Mojave without switching to APFS? 2) Do you have a fusion drive? BootCamp does not work well with Fusion Drives (from my own experience, although that might just be my setup) Jul 10, 2020 at 1:33

The problem was the file system. (Thanks to @MatthewBarclay for the hint) It seems that one need to use APFS. I installed a fresh copy of OSX and then everything worked fine
