Hi I have a mid 2009 mac book pro upgraded to mountain lion.
I've tried installing windows using boot camp but it says the windows installer can't be found.
It's because the file is an iso I assume. There is no option to create a windows installer disk with boot camp on this model of mac book.
So how can I install from iso?
I have already created the partition so can I just format a USB stick so it is bootable and put the iso on there then reboot holding option key or how can I turn the iso into an installer disc? What are my options thanks.

Well, the easiest way would be to burn a DVD of the installation. USB installations would work, but they're still hit and miss now for me, even on the newer MacBooks.

Thanks, but if I wanted to install windows from USB how do I make a bootable install usb stick from an iso image on my mac?
I have done a lot of reading on this but it seems very complicated to me using terminal with a whole load of commands. Is there not a simple way with disk utility?

Thanks

I have read that it doesn't answer my question.

----------

As the option to make a USB install disc isn't available.
