    Hey guys,

    I need some help installing my Windows 8 Upgrade. Normally for this to install I first have to install Windows xp on the disk (which is a retail version) and then Windows 8. The problem is that Bootcamp only supports windows 7 and 8 :( So do any of you guys maybe know a way to install an upgrade version without first having to install the retail version?

    There is no need to install XP first.

    Google is your friend - it even has been posted on this forum.

    Search e.g. for "Windows 7 Clean Install [Upgrade DVD] Bootcamp" in this forum.
