Hi everyone, I posted this on some other mac forum but no one is helping me I have been trying to install Windows this week, and it has been quite the adventure, finally I have given up and decided to ask for help. It's a macbook pro from late 2011 running Lion 10.7.5. First of all, the CD/DVD drive doesn't work, it keeps the discs in and then ejects them about 10 seconds later. So I went and bought a "USB SUPERDRIVE" and managed to burn the Windows 7 ISO I have onto a DVD (I read somewhere installing Windows from a USB was only available for newer macbooks). I open bootcamp and do the partition but when it restarts to install windows it goes to a black screen with a ticking cursor thing? Like the one that is there when you are typing something. I tried to burn the disc again on my iMac to see if it was an error or something with the superdrive, but that didn't help either, I'm clueless about all this in all honesty so I don't know what to do. I also tried installing it without bootcamp, simply creating a partition in disc utility and going off of there but that didn't work either. Sometimes if I restart the computer pressing the option key and select the Windows DVD it says "no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key" but only sometimes, most of the time it just remains black. Any suggestions?Could it be the windows file being corrupted / should I redownload? or is there something wrong with the macbook?
