    Dear everyone,

    Today I reinstalled my MacBook Pro 13 inch, mid 2011 with 8GB of RAM, 126GB Crucial M4 SSD and the HDD in an OptiBay.

    I'm trying to install Windows with bootcamp, preferably on the harddrive in the OptiBay but after a lot of trying and looking it up on Google it didn't seem to work out since Mac refuses to partition or something on drives inside an OptiBay...

    So I reinstalled Mac OS X Mountain Lion, to clear some space out on my primary drive, which went fine. So I installed everything, opened BootCamp and put my student Windows 8 onto my 8GB USB stick, it all works fine until I get to the selecting the partition, I get multiple errors: http://cl.ly/image/213I1I212h0Z

    Installation USB: http://cl.ly/image/271w1t42182s

    If anyone else is having this problem I would recommend this solution. :)

    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Greetings

    It's been like that all the time.

    Strange thing is how it works with Windows 8, but won't install... But Windows 7 won't even be detected.
