    Mods: I understand this doesn't fit with PowerPCs but like others have said, I would rather ask this community.

    So, I recently got a Black MacBook with a Core Duo & GMA 950. It also has 2GBs of Ram and a 160gb HDD(Already Partitioned in half, 80/80)

    I would like to install Windows 7 or higher on this but I can't seem to do it. Snow Leapard comes with BootCamp 3 which only uses DVDs. I don't have any DVDs so I need to use USB. Which only Bootcamp 4 is capable of.

    Keep in mind, this is a Core Duo which can only go up to 10.6.8.

    Anyway to install Windows 7 through a USB Flash Drive(size isn't an issue)?

    Yes, but that machine may not be bootable from a Windows 7 USB installer. Most earlier Intell Macs are not able to boot from them. You could try using Microsoft's USB making utility and then installing the Boot Camp drivers afterwards.

    You gotta use a DVD man, an early intel wont boot from a USB windows install.
