I have been trying to install Windows 10 via a bootable USB on my Macbook pro (2016 running Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6) for some time now, but I continue to run into issues. The USB boots up just fine, and allows me to get to the part of the windows installation where it asks me to select which disk to install the OS onto. The issue I am running into is no disks are displayed, and if I try to go into the WindowsSupport directory I added to the USB drive after downloading from bootcamp while it does have a AppleSSD64 driver it does not appear to function or allow the OS to detect the drive. I am running into much the same problem detailed at https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8269886
The drive is 256GB total in size and I have a windows partition formatted to exFat to try to allow the installer to detect it. I also manually used fdisk to ensure a hybrid MBR partition scheme is not used, as detailed here. (https://fgimian.github.io/blog/2016/03/12/installing-windows-10-on-a-mac-without-bootcamp/) Despite all of my efforts I cannot get the installer to recognize my computers hard drive. I have downloaded the Windows 10 ISO repeatedly from Microsoft and am sure it is not corrupt and do not have any idea what is going on.
The end goal of this process is to get windows only running on my mac, I do not want a Mac OS partition due to the limited hard drive space I have available, which is why I am attempting to install the whole thing from a bootable USB instead of bootcamp.
Any help is much appreciated, thank you.
