Can & How Can I Install Windows 7 x64 on a MacBook Air?
I have a MacBook Pro Mid-1010 (which, from what I can tell, doesn't support USB booting (except Apple's Recovery Disk Assistant boots just fine off a USB drive). I took out the SuperDrive, moved the original 250GB hard drive to the SuperDrive bay, and installed a new 750GB hard drive in place of the original. I then used the aforementioned Disk Assistant to completely copy the 250GB hard drive onto a partition on the 750GB hard drive. I now want to install Windows 7 on the 250GB hard drive.
However, as I don't have a SuperDrive, I can't boot off the Windows 7 disc, and since my MacBook apparently doesn't support USB booting, I can't boot that way either. So I'm stuck.
Apparently I can use VirtualBox to start the install, then reboot onto the actual drive and go from there; however, information on this process is unreliable and outdated at best, and looks to require reFIT, which appears to be completely useless to me and would complicate further upgrades and such.
So, am I shit out of luck here? I'd like to avoid having to install the SuperDrive again and swap around the drives, then do it again after I'm done, and I'm not even sure if the Windows install DVD will boot straight off the disc without BootCamp.
