I have a MBP running 10.6 with a CD drive. I read a tutorial that allowed me to create a bootable Windows 7 USB stick by modifying the Info.plist file in the Boot Camp Assistant package so it shows the option to create a bootable USB.

Tutorial is here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1414851

I followed it, but hit a snag. My Info.plist is missing the chunk of code that begins with: USBBootSupportedModels

This is my Info.plist:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">

    <string>IM52.0090.B03</string>

    <string>MBP12.0061.B03</string>

</array>
<key>NSMainNibFile</key>
<string>MainMenu</string>
<key>NSPrincipalClass</key>
<string>NSApplication</string>

I did edit the plist file but didn't work so I reverted back from a copy I made. Now my Boot Camp assistant don't load up at all.

Any advice?
