  1. I tried this om my MacBook pro 15″ late 2011 and it keeps saying “Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks.” And it doesn’t help to Format.

  2. I just tried to install Win10 on a 2009 mid MacBook Pro and it doesnt reconize the ISO. Tried to copy the ISO to the Documents folder still a no go.

  3. I am running Yosemite on my early 2011 MacBook Pro. I downloaded the ISO file. My problem is that when I am in BootCamp and click on the first continue button, I only have 2 options. The first one is: “Download the latest Windows Support software from Apple” and the second is: “Install Windows 7 or later version.” I don’t have the 3rd option at all which is: “Create a Windows 7 or later install disk.” Am I missing something here? Please help!
