(This part is optional and only needs to be followed if your Mac is having this problem)

2. Click on System

2. Turn your Mac back on and hold the Option key immediately at start up. You should see two boot up options, Windows or Mac (sometimes the Mac side will just show up as 'untitled'). Select Mac or Untitled to boot into Mac OS. You might see two Windows boot up options which is what we will fix

3, Log into your account and drag the ISO file that you still have saved on your desktop to the trash and empty the trash

You are done! You have now successfully installed Windows on your Mac via boot camp. Any time you want to switch operating systems simply shut down your computer, hold down the option key at start up, and chose the operating system you want to use
