    Hi guys,

    Yesterday i've bought the Macbook Pro 2.9GHZ i7 8Gb RAM etc. (No retina). I have a few questions though, i don't have a OSX Mountain Lion disc and no windows disc (which i'd like to ask a question about). So first i'd like to ask, can i borrow a windows 8 disc from a mate? And can i install bootcamp without a Mountain Lion disc. Second, will the 64 run good with my specs? And can someone send me a good tutorial on how to install it?
    I really hope someone can help me.

    Borrowing someone else's win8 disk is piracy and discussions of that are not permitted here.

    Secondly Microsoft requires activation so you'll not be able to use win8 after a period of time since the install will not activate.
