    Hi,

    I'm trying to (re)install (I had a Bootcamp partition on my Mac a couple of times before) Windows 7 on a Bootcamp partition on my MacBook.
    The problem is, I get this error massage when trying to boot the Windows installation:
    "no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key"
    As far as I know now, after researching the web, this is because I haven’t put the Windows CD in the internal slot-in drive.
    Now it's the thing that my internal drive is broken since quite some time (as probably most of the slot-ins).
    I tried an external CD-drive, USB sticks etc., didn't get it to work though.
    So I'd like to know if there is some workaround or other way to solves this problem?

    I tried to search the web and this Forum but didn't find any solution. If there is one and I didn't find it, sorry in advance, I'd really appreciate the link.

    Just some details on my (really old) lady:
    MacBook 4,1
    OS X 10.6.8
    Bootcamp: 3.0.4

    I hope I didn't forget any important information, if I did, please ask.


    Thank you all in advance

    I can't help but you might get more help if you posted your problem in the "Windows, Linux, & Others on the Mac" section of the forum. Good luck!

    Since there is some discussion about Windows 10 right now, I might get lucky and somebody faces the problem too and has a solution, so.... *bump*
