    I removed my optical disk and installed a SSD in its place. I am wanting to create a bootcamp partition using USB, but I get the typical error. Is there a work-around?

    Thanks!

    Well according to this, the 2009 doesn't support Windows 8

    I am running Windows 10 64 bit on 2006 MBP. I use the 3.2 bootcamp drivers and they work fine. They worked fine with x64 8.1 Pro before also.

    Apple doesn't let you use bootcamp assistent with anything other than Windows 7 so if you want other versions like xp then you need to manually install it and then download and install the bootcamp software manually.

    It supports Windows 8 which is what this thread is about.

    Oh on the 2009 Macs I meant.

    I don't understand why they only allow you to use Windows 7.

    The 2009 can run any version.
