    I want to remove the optibay and need to know if the 2011 mbp is able to:
    • Boot from and use a Ubuntu live USB Flash Drive?
    • Install Windows 7 via USB flash drive?

    hi,

    theres already a 'found' solution for this in another thread, here:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=631901

    it's extremely detailed about halfway down and has links to several sites with software you need. Unfortunately it is difficult to do as i tried to do the same thing through bootcamp. It will not be recognised simply by burning the disc image to the USB as if it was a DVD. Burning to a DVD WOULD be your best bet, but to answer your question, have a look at the other thread above,

    let me know how it goes :)
