Many things you need to consider before installation. Firstly, see if your system has the required space in the drive to proceed to installation. The minimum requirement of windows 10 is 64GB. And if the system’s hard drive does not manage this space, the installation process automatically cancels. And if the order has that space, our recommendation is 128GB. Because the more area your hard drive manages, the better the system performs.
Moreover, you need to have a USB drive of a minimum of 4GB to transfer the Windows 10 ISO file into. And most importantly, a newer version of the Mac system that should be newer than its 2015 mac book systems or else you will be unable to proceed to installation.

The partition you do can be undone in the future in the system. But by using different third party software, you can again modify the space between OS and Windows.
After you partition space between those two. Clicks on install. Moreover, at this point, your screen will turn black. But do not worry, your Mac is rebooting, and after some time, it will restart, and finally, Windows 10 will begin to load.
