    Hi everyone,

    I cannot manage to modify my info.plist from the boot camp assistant package, the DARequiredROMVersions does not appear in the file. Hoping someone could help me out with this, here is what I did so far ;

    1. I created a bootable Windows 7 USB with Unetbootin from .ISO file
    2. Partitioned my SSD with a 75 gig MS-DOS (FAT)
    3. From bootcamp assistant I downloaded the apple software update for windows
    4. when I try to boot from my USB, it is not detected on startup ...

    MacbookPro (mid 2010), 2.4 GHz, 4GB, with 250 Gig SSD

    Pardon my ignorance, but why in God's name would you want to install Windows on a Macbook?

    There is a special program which my work requires me to work on from home, obviously it only works on PC

    Your mid-2010 should have a DVD drive (unless you swapped that out).

    For my mid-2010, I burned the Windows 7 iso to a DVD. Then put it in, boot while holding "Option", and select the disc.

    I don't remember the details, but I don't think the 2010 MBP boots from USB easily. It didn't show up for me, either.

    As a side note, Win7 runs much better than El Cap / Sierra on my 2010 i5 8GB.
