Hello and thanks for looking in to my thread in advanced.

I´m a new/first time PC builder. I had a PC already and I wanted to switch out the Motherboard, CPU, Power Supply, Graphics card, and Ram. After switching all those out, I thought I was done. I thought I could turn on my PC and BAM, PC done. But, come to find out, that wasn´t the case. When I turned on my PC, I was prompted with the BIOS screen. I then click ¨Save and Exit.¨ It then did a quick restart and came back to the BIOS screen. I looked up the problem and nothing came up, BUT when I see tutorials they always plug in a USB or slide in a Disc with the Windows OS on it and then they proceed on with their computer.

So now, I´m trying to buy and then download the Windows OS on a USB, but I don´t have any other PC´s at my house except a Mac laptop. So what I´m asking is, am I able to plug in the USB into that Mac and download the Windows OS on the USB?


And I told the whole story because I´m new to this, so I have almost no clue of what I´m doing. So, If I´m forgetting to do something, then please tell me.

I´ve been waiting several months for this project of mine to come together. So, I´m very anxious for it to be finished. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Just so you know this won't work if you are running the newest version of macOS. Boot Camp Assistant was updated and no longer allows you to put ISOs on a USB flash drive.
