    I apologise in advance if there is a thread about this, but I did quite a lot of research and I don't fully understand.

    Here's my problem:

    I have a pretty old MacBook Pro (2008) with OS X Lion on it. My superdrive doesn't work anymore and I want to install Windows on it. (7 or XP, doesn't matter).

    Now I have created bootable USB's for both XP and 7 but it doesn't appear when i boot and press alt key.. I have tried with rEFIt but that doesn't work either.

    Can someone please help? I have a statistics exam in 4 days and I need windows for it :)

    Too bad no-one answered, I have the same issue, although with a MB Air (2010). Done the bootcamp part, manually installed rEFIt as suggested in other threads, but only get some ubuntu options in EFI. Did you figure it out?
