Question: I Mac bootcamp

I have late 2011 model came with is x lion, updated to El Capitan. Lion is only compatible with win 7, having El Capitan I’m able to install win10. I’ve downloaded win 10 64bit iso image to usb flash drive, downloaded the windows support software onto it also. Partition the drive then comes up no bootable disk. Turn Mac off, back on hold option key choose the flash drive then windows boots, everything works until I click windows installer partition labeled bootcamp. Doesn’t work so I hit format and this is where I’m stuck format does nothing.

officially it does not support windows 10

Use Windows 10 on your Mac with Boot Camp - Apple Support

personally I got it working on mine by installing win7 and upgrading from inside windows

and settling for using the windows 8.1 drivers on windows 10

I went and bought windows 7 premium 64 bit after partitioning hard drive put full installation disk in it says no boot disk found insert disk and press any key I do that and after 30 seconds of trying to read disk it spits it back out? Does this have anything to do with upgrading to El Capitan from my original lion? I’ve spent almost 300$ on window software to not even being able to use it
