    So I wanted to operate my macbook air without mac OS. I originally had it bootcamped with windows 7 and recently deleted the mac partition.

    However, I wanted to reformat/reinstall my windows 7 software but my laptop doesn't recognize how to boot from USB. I know for windows laptops they can access BIOS to change this. But how do I do this on my apple laptop?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is the USB device indeed bootable? Does the device show up when holding down the option key at power on?
