    I've been trying to do that for a week now by this guide:

    the first time i tried it gave me this error when booting windows:
    "no bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"
    i thought it could be a corrupt file so i downloaded another release and tried again but no luck.

    P.S the mountain lion runs fine.

    1st off, you should post in the thread where your having trouble instead of starting a new thread on same topic.

    2nd - guide says x64 EFI and I thought it might work with 86-x64 EFI, wasn't sure. Unless your Mac is 2010 MacPro or later you do not have a true x64 EFI. Either you did some thing wrong or your Mac is not compatable. Try 32 bit Windows 8.
