    That is interesting. Does that mean Windows 10 will run on Macbook?

    Any Intel based Macbook can run Windows.

    This is just an example of remote accessing; you can even access Windows from any ARM based Android device.

    That's through bootcamp and using Disk Utility . I mean using the Windows installation ISO as you would with a PC.

    Nope; from Vista SP1 you can do native UEFI boot using any x64 Windows on Macs.

    It won't work just like that. You must use Disk Utility to create the disc. That means you'll have to make sure your Macbook is used to do that before going about the installation. You would have problem booting from the disc media and it is even worse in the case of using a bootable USB without using a Disk Utility.

    Have you tried it before? It seems not to work without using the Disk Utility to create the disc media.

    Yes, I have; have you? Why are you obsessed with using Disk Utility?? :D

    Create a FAT32 formatted USB, copy the contents of the Windows ISO in it, do necessary adjustments for UEFI booting (applicable for pre 8.x Windows) and you're ready to go.

    Yes I am. I have used the Disk Utility a lot. What you suggested doesn't seem to work for me. I have one old intel Macbook pro that rejects what you explain here.

    You need to be on UEFI 2.0 compatible firmware. If Apple doesn't provide an update for your model, then you're out of luck.

    What are the problems you're facing??
