I was on the net the whole day and I couldn't find any clue to solve this problem... I try to install Windows 7 on my MBP with the .iso and an USB key. To do so... Boot Camp. My CD-ROM player is dead, so I can't use it anymore to burn/read a version of Win7.
The problem is, that the menu to set up my bootable USB key doesn't exist (I just can download the latest drivers and install Windows 7 from a CD/DVD). Consequently, I managed to put Win7 iso in my USB key (using formatting and the command
dd if=<ISO_FILE.iso> of=/dev/rdisk1), but Boot Camp does not consider my key as a CD-ROM (Error prompted when I tried to use the last option in Boot Camp).
I also tried to change the
Info.plist file in the Boot Camp package, without success.
Does anyone have any idea how to force Boot Camp to consider it as a good Win7 installer? Does it exist another tool to install Win7 in dual boot ? Or any other method?
Thank you very much for your responses!
