Thank you for making this video boot camp was not a good option for me because my computer got stuck in windows mode. Now I can keep the mac and not want to get a windows computer to get what I am missing.

Hi, you reference the cd/dvd drive. is that a "virtual drive" that you put the iso file on? I have the correct iso file already on a USB stick that was loaded on using bootcamp. IS this usb stick necessary at all or can I just load windows from the iso file in my downloads? Thanks,

When I try to load the windows 10 iso file they're greyed out and then when I select all files to select it I get an error saying failed to open disc drive. Is there a fix for this?
flow2k (1 month ago)
Technically, the different partition method (using bootcamp) can still share files with mounts. But I agree, it's not as easy as Virtual Box.

Can you help me install the drivers? I need especially to use USB ports. Unfortunately I cannot use them, I connect my flash drive or my phone, they are seen in macos, but in windows 10 not. I tried using driverpack online, and driverscloud, but no drivers are detected. I am not interested in display or sound drivers, only USB.

If you click the option "I DO NOT HAVE A PRODUCT KEY" won't Windows just keep nagging you every so often to Activate It? and also won't it have limited functionality until you do activate it with a valid product key? :)

"Select the driver to install" no drivers in the virtual pc
Joshua Sustache (3 months ago)
Hello!! I did the whole process but when I click to "install windows" it automatically says" A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a DVD, USB or Hard Disk driver. If you have a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with the driver on it, please insert it now. Note: if the installation media for windows is in the DVD driver or a USB driver, you can safely remove it for this step. Does anyone know how to answer this??? My MAC is a newer version and doesn't have an input systems for DVD/CD (don't know if that matters). HELP!!!

this worked for me! i was trying to use bootcamp before but it got complicated very quickly because i have an unsupported macbook pro from early 2011. ultimately, bootcamp didnt work and didnt let me install the windows OS. so instead i used this tutorial and it works for me! now i have windows 10 fully installed. thank you very much! :D

Thanks for the great vid. You just got a new sub ;-) But what about the Windows license key? Not necessary? How to run updates etc. without the key?
Micky Baeza (4 months ago)
If you are getting the "FATAL: No bootable medium found! System halted." message, you need to: 1. Click Settings on your Windows 10 option in VirtualBox. 2. Go to the System section. 3. In the Boot Order section, move Optical to the top of the list and make sure it is selected. 4. Click OK and the start your Windows 10 again. Hopefully this helps!

Hi Hubert, Hope you are doing great. I have gone through your youtube video "How to install Windows 10 on a Mac (using VirtualBox)" on yesterday. Then I tried to do the same in my MAC. But while I was trying to install the VirtualBox in my MAC, I encountered the error at the end of the installation as "The installation failed" and have been advised to contact the software manufacturer for assistance. I don't see any placeholder to attach my screenshot here, otherwise I could have done so. Can you please help me to resolve the issue ASAP ? Thanks & Regards - Debasish (Debasish Hazra)
