    Anyone get all working OK. I am about ready to buy a MacBook Pro 15 with Mavericks and want to confirm that I can get WIndows up and running.

    Thanks in advance!

    You will need genuine full Win 7 Pro OS install media and a key, if you have a DVD you can use Microsofts USB stick download tool.

    Mavericks will download the bootcamp drivers onto another USB stick which you can leave plugged in alongside your 7 installer as it wont be bootable.

    Once you have setup Win 7 and your user account etc it will automatically start the bootcamp install and load all the drivers in automatically.

    Is Windows 7 the best choice with an Iris Pro rMBP, or can I install 8, or even 8.1 without troubles?
