I'm trying to intall Windows 7 on my Mid 2009 Macbook Pro, however I'm running into A LOT of trouble.
My superdrive have been broken for years and I can't boot from a bootable USB. (I created one in Virtual Box using the Windows 7 USB/DVD Tool)
I then followed this tutorial on how to start the installation from within VMWare Fusion (http://www.andrewsavory.com/blog/2011/2156#), which seemed to work at first, but once I rebooted and selected the Windows Partition I got an error saying that windows could not be installed due to "recent software or hardware changes". I had selected the x86 version, so I figured I might as well try the x64 version and see if that makes a difference.
So I removed my bootcamp partition, created it again, went into VMWare after doing the same process as before, now I simply get a message saying "No operating system found".
I'm wondering with my options are to actually install Windows without a superdrive or a bootable USB. Can I just copy the installation files to the bootcamp partition and "make it start"?
