  1. Disk Utility is no longer available for this since the High Serria. Any other options available for Mojave?

    I suppose you meant to say that the BootCampAssistant is no longer available. It actually is on some machines, but it was deactivated for the Classic Mac Pro tower computers. The reasons are valid, but you can still run windows. I have windows 10 installed on my system without issue.

    If you are in fact using a cMP tower, you shouldnít install from a USB. The USB install is an EFI Windows install and it can (and has for many people) cause firmware corruption which will give you a giant silver brick on your desktop. You should only install windows 10 in legacy mode from a DVD (default option for DVD). Itís not hard, and it wonít brick your machine. If you still insist on installing in EFI mode, the informaion below should help. Forget about BCA (BootCamp Assistant), itís simply not needed.

    A quick Google of the subject leads me to the page below. I hope this helps.

    Thanks for this great suggestion.

    Bootcamp is available on my mac but it keeps saying the USB should be 32G+. However, I only got a 16G USB sticks. I am trying to use PassFab software but the disk is not bootable. Now it is no longer an issue as it is fixed by following the tips in this post: https://www.androidphonesoft.com/resources/burn-iso-to-usb-on-mac.html
