    I got my harddisk replaced via the harddisk replacemant program from apple.
    I am having a Imac 27, 11.1

    I want to install Win7 via bootcamp, and the main problem is that the cd/dvd driver do not work, so I need to install from USB.

    Originally the new harddisk was installed with OS version 10.6, I then bought Mountain lion, version 10.8.3
    I have installed the service update 10.8.3

    Initially the bootcamp would not recognize my USD flash disk, so I followed the instructions from this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4qxcgWvanE&list=HL1368742445) and changed the settings in the info.plist file in the bootcamp to 11.0 (11.1 diden´t work).

    This adjustment resulted in that I could create a wininstall bootdisk, and make a partition and download the windows installer software packet.
    Now the next step should be that the bootcamp assistent should restart and install the win7. But in the reboot the system cannot locate the usb bootdisk, and the error says ; "No rebootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

    Does anyone have a good idea how to helpt the bootcamp assistent boot from usb ?

    thx :)
