So I got this refurbished 15" early-2011 i7 MacBook Pro and the previous owner decided to take out the Superdrive and replace it with a slot for another HDD. I want to install Bootcamp to my MacBook because I work a lot with CPU and RAM consuming apps so I can't use virtualization (Paralells or VMWare Fusion). The problem is that I can't install Windows without a drive. I have tried several methods searching through internet and forums but without success: Modifying the Boot Camp Assistant .plist Booting from external CD drive Booting from bootable pendrive/SD Card/SD Card in reader Installing rEFInd All I have in hand is: My MacBook Pro My previous MacBook Pro (Mid-2009) 4GB pendrive 16GB SD Card (can be used as pendrive with card reader) Windows 7 x64 ISO and DVD A Windows PC with external DVD drive 3 blank DVDs I was thinking of using my older MBP to create a Bootcamp installation and then copy it to a partition made manualy on my new MBP but I'm not sure it will work. I need to have bootcamp quite urgently in this machine because i work outside my home and there are some softwares that are not available on OSX but are too heavy for virtualization and i would like to use the CPU at full power. Also, i can't order a new superdrive from Amazon, Newegg or whatever because I live in Chile and everything takes at least 3 weeks to ship (specially this time of the year) and, although they are quite cheap, i have to pay import taxes and stuff. I have not been able to contact the previous owner to know if he haves the Superdrive stored so i gave that lost although i will keep insisting. Any suggestions would be VERY appreciated as i have been struggling with this one for several days. Thanks!! PS: Sorry for my english. I'm from Chile.
