Boot Camp is now compatible with the latest version of Windows 10 Creators Update

When Microsoft launched Windows 10, a question that remained in the air was how the updates of this new version of the operating system would be released. Shortly after we have been able to verify how Microsoft is not based on any pattern, as Apple does, but distributes them throughout the year. When they are small updates that contain small improvements or security patches, there is no problem. But when it comes to big updates things get complicated, since Apple has to update Boot Camp to be compatible with the latest version of Microsoft's operating system.

In early April, Microsoft released the latest major update to Windows 10 called the Creators Update, an update that brings us a large number of new features but so far it was not compatible with Boot Camp, so that users who intended to install it could not. But that incompatibility is over, since as we can read on the Apple website, Boot Camp is now compatible with all compatible Macs that have macOS Sierra 10.12.5 or a higher version installed.

If you have ever used Boot Camp, you know that the application needs download the necessary software to install on a compatible Mac of any of the Windows 10 64-bit versions. In addition, an image of the version that we want to install and an activation number is also necessary.

But if your Mac has been left out of the Boot Camp updates, you can still make use of Windows 10 on your PC, thanks to the Parallels app, an application that allows us to emulate on our Mac any version of the operating systems currently available on the market, such as Windows, Linux, ChromeOS ... In this article we show you in detail how different operating systems can be installed on a Mac without using from Boot Camp.

    Good Morning. Using Boot Camp and the Windows partition, I installed Windows 10 pro a few months ago, with my serial and starting with ALT and everything is perfect !.
    A few days ago I reverted to IOS and later installed Parallels 12.
    When I do the same installation process of Windows 10 pro, with my serial included, it creates a version of Windows in which my serial does not work and with the message in settings, that I have to acquire a license for the full version from Microsoft.
    I have tried creating Parallels virtual machine and directly by Boot camp with the same result.
    But if I uninstall Parallels and do it again like months ago, it installs my Windows 10 pro without problems, with my valid license. Booting with ALT.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Thank you very much
