Hi everyone, First time poster, longer time lurker. I have owned Mac Books for years, and just recently bought the "newest" Macbook pro. It's stats are: Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display ME294LL/A Intel Core i7 2.3GHz 16GB Memory 512GB PCIe-Based Flash Storage SSD 15.4" Notebook Mac OS X v10.9 Mavericks I have always owned a PC (still do), but considering the price and power on this system, I want to put Windows 8.1 on it (mainly for games, everything else is done in OS X). I purchased Windows 8.1, along with an external DVD drive, and hope to get some advice on how to install it on my new system. I know there are some workarounds to this, and I have searched and read several threads, but most seemed to be geared towards someone who has some experience with bootcamp, something I have absolutely no experience with. If anyone could possibly give me some step by step noob instructions I would greatly appreciate it ;-) I am also curious how large a partition I should dedicate to Windows, I was thinking 120-150 gigs, but am not sure. Thanks so much!!!
