Install a Windows on Mac WITHOUT BootCamp
I tried to search the forum but didn't find anything related to this.
MacBook, a Win 7 ultimate disk, two OSX install discs
I want to achieve:
Install the Win 7 without using the BootCamp and NO OSX should be installed on my disk
I followed the link and it works (almost). http://derekhat.com/install-vista-on...hout-bootcamp/
The wireless is working on the first login and the drive for intel chipset is updated through windows update.
Installed Input remapper.
1. No Sound
2. Can not adjust the brightness even the icon shows up on the screen
3. The temperature of the laptop is extremely high
Anyone knows the solutions for these issues? The win 7 seems cannot read anything from the OSX DVD so I couldn't get the Boot camp driver inside, also tried to install the BootCamp Driver 2.1 for Vista and it didn't work (did turn on Vista Compatibility and runas Admin).

Get the Bootcamp 3.0 Drivers from a Snow Leopard disk. If you don't have SL, download it from the net. You can easily find them with google.
1) The sound will start working after installing BC 3.0 drivers. Though its volume might be low... install the fix from this forum.
2) You will be able to so after BC 3.0 driver
3) Getting a cooling pad is the only option...

What a misleading thread and blog post title! There are already plenty of threads about "Windows only" Macs and it should say either Windows without OS X or Windows without Boot Camp Assistant.
Boot Camp is three separate things:
1) Boot Camp Assistant
2) The firmware options/updates that allow for BIOS emulation and booting Windows media
3) The drivers provided by Apple on the Leopard/SL DVD or downloaded for Tiger when it was available.
This thread shows you pretty much always need #3, but you can skip #1 and #2 if you have any Mac releases since the original downloadable Boot Camp and know how to or are willing to partition the HDD manually. Since some of the hardware is specific to Apple, you will generally need the latest Boot Camp drivers.

Just swap hd with already existing win7 install on normall laptop or clone a working win7 into the apple HD....
As long as there is no APPLE files on the HD....macbookpro should attempt to load the OS for 1+minute (hear chime sound, withe screen, wait 1+min and see win7 start loading)
After that let windows update itself(5min all driver it can find are downloaded)
Only tried withh win7_32 enterprise
