I am trying to install Windows 7 using the Boot Camp Assistant. I have downloaded the ISO, however I don't have a CD drive as its a MacBook Air and all my USB drives are too small. I am trying to install it using an SD Card as I read that they are handled in the same way as USB drives, however I can't find a way to get the assistant to recognise the SD card. Can any one help?
I'm currently installing Windows 7 from an 16 GB SD card. From a Windows computer, I prepared the SD card with WinToFlash and the ISO of Windows 7, and when it was done I mounted the SD card with a multi card reader, and Boot Camp read it!
This is partially inaccurate. You can actually install OS X on a SD card according to Apple's support documents. However, on Windows you can't.
Can I install Mac OS X on an SD storage device and use it as a startup volume?
Yes. Change the default partition table to GUID using Disk Utility, and format the card to use the Mac OS Extended file format to do so.
