    Hi there
    I have a Mac Pro 4.1 flashed to 5.1 and i am trying to install bootcamp on one of my drive bays that i have wiped.
    The issue that i have is that i have removed both optical drives and added hard drives instead.
    Whenever i start the bootcamp process it says I cannot install windows without an optical drive

    Does anyone know how i can bypass this and instal windows?

    Thank you

    (Running OS sierra 10.12.3)

    Edit: I have tried to use an external CD/DVD drive without success
