    Alright heres a tough question for a lot of people here. I go to the university of kansas... ok well anyways if you join the business school you get free access to windows 7. I bet this is true for a lot of colleges but i got a problem i placed the windows 7... well idk information on a flash-drive i basically burned the disk to my flash-drive since you have to use your own dvds well i dont have any so the person said she would just put it on the flashdrive... so can someone tell me how to install it... and though i got it for free its completely legal you can google it if you dont believe.

    Well I used this tool you previously mentioned, and it even guess what I was going to type. I typed in "Install Windows" and the first guess was "from usb/pen drive". Wild right? :D

    You need to check your flash drive. Did they give you .EXE/.BOX files or an .iSO file or did they actually do what jmann linked to.

    If your flash drive is already formatted like in the link, just connect it and reboot your Mac holding down the Alt/Option key. You should see it as a boot option then called Windows.

    If you have an .ISO or .EXE file you will need to follow the guide jmann linked to using Windows.
