Question: Boot Camp - stops while creating flash disk with Windows 10

I am trying to install Windows 10 1709 on my MacMini (Macmini7,1, acquired at the end of 2015). I had Windows 10 on this MacMini before (earlier release 1694), just wanted to make fresh installation.


I reinstalled OS on MacMini (Maverick), then upgraded it to High Sierra. Then installed all updates. Everything fresh and clean from MacOS point of view.


I downloaded Windows 10 .iso file from microsoft.com.


When I try to create flash disk with Boot Camp Assistant I get error «It is not possible to set a software as up-dating is unavailable via the Software updating server» (not exact wording, I see this text in Russian - «Не удается установить ПО, так как обновление недоступно через сервер Обновления ПО.»).


I tried several times, the same error.


Could anybody give a hint?

Mac mini, iOS 11.2.1

You seem to have the correct ISO.


ls -lgh *.iso

-rw-r--r--@ 1 staff 4.4G Oct 1 05:35 Win10_1709_German_x64.iso

-rw-r--r--@ 1 staff 4.2G Oct 1 03:24 Win10_1709_Russian_x64.iso

-rw-r--r--@ 1 staff 4.0G Apr 7 2015 Win8.1_EnglishInternational_x64.iso

openssl md5 Win10_1709_Russian_x64.iso

MD5(Win10_1709_Russian_x64.iso)= 93d9118fa7b78b69b0b43040506c818a


Can you post the exact error message (a photo/screen shot would be very helpful) or a translated version?

Yes. First, I choose OS:

Here it says "We was not able to find drivers. To get storage device driver push the button "Download driver":

Remove all external storage, including the USB Installer, run SMC/NVRAM Reset, connect the USB Installer, Keyboard/Mouse (nothing else), reboot the Mac, and hold Alt/Option, and choose the appropriate icon. I assume you are running 10.13.2 with all the Security patches.
