    I guess its something to do with the Mac version of the BIOS ie when booting MBA pre 2011 cannot boot from a USB. Some have tried - is it Refit?

    So you need an external disc or lots of fiddling.

    I managed to use Winclone to copy my new installed windows 7 on my 2011 MBA to The 2010 MBA worked a treat.
