    Hello there,

    I've been searching and searching without success for an active link to download the Firmware for MacBook Pro's 15" 2008 - MBP11.0055.B03 but all the ones I find are dead.

    This is to enable Legacy Book on rEFIt and install Ubuntu/windows 7 on boot camp. Link: http://refit.sourceforge.net/doc/c4s1_notfound.html

    Can any one help ?
    Thanks in advanced.

    Your model Macbook never had an EFI update. It came from Apple with the ability to boot into Windows via Boot Camp.

    I'm trying to install from a USB drive, since my Superdrive is broken.

    When I select the USB from the rEFIT and the Windows or Linux logo comes up after a few seconds I get a screen with:

    Remove rEFIt. That machine will be able to properly boot into a correctly setup Windows 7 or Ubuntu USB drive.

    OK, so I'm trying this from scratch again.

    1. Created a new Windows 7 USB boot drive with bootsec.exe using the Windows 7 DVD USB Download tool.

    2. Deleted rEFIt.

    3. Mounted the Win7.iso with Toast so Boot Camp would recognize it and started the install/partitioning process.

    4. After rebooting to continue the windows install process Is get a black screen with the following :

    "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key. "
    The USB is inserted with the Windows 7 install.

    This is why I was trying to boot from the USB with rEFIt.

    That error is generated by Windows because you haven't properly setup the USB drive to be bootable on a Mac.

    You need to make a fully bootable USB Windows 7 install. You've mounted the ISO under Mac OS X. When you shutdown, this disappears.

    Hope this helps

    It'll be less work to burn the Windows ISO to a DVD than to get the MBP to boot from the Windows USB installer.

    I have fallowed this instructions to create a new bootable USB. but I'm trying to run Bootcam again and get an error. "This disk can't be partitioned because some files can't be moved." (Image)

    I have tried to repartition the drive using the Disk Tool from the recovery partition and no luck! (Very frustrated) I don't want to reformat everything!

    Yes it would, but like mentioned before, my Superdrive/DVD drive is broken.

    Thanks
