    Hi Everybody,
    I have a mid-2010 15 inch never used Macbook Pro. I've replaced the internal CD/DVD reader with the internal Sata 750 gb disk then I've put a Samsung SSD Pro 128GB instead of the SATA, in the SATA it still has Mavericks on it. Now I want To install Windows 8.1 on the SSD via bootcamp I've booted windows 8 n a 16GB USB Flash formatted correctly . Everytime I try to install Win8 I always have error messages and I've noticed sometimes it appears randomly. Most of the time the error messages are about MBR partition , EFI GPT .....
    One time, the installation ran until the very end but a the end it failed.
    Do you see how can I fix this please thanks a lot. 
    here is some links that can help :

    For Bootcamp you'll need to reinstall the superdrive.

    Allow me to rephrase: For the time you will spend attempting to find a workaround for this, you will save more by simply reinstalling the SuperDrive.

    Those mods usually just reenable the USB checkbox, they don't actually do anything.
