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:

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" "">
<plist version="1.0">
<string>Boot Camp Assistant</string>
<string>Boot Camp Assistant</string>
<string>Boot Camp Assistant 3.0.4, Copyright © 2010 Apple Inc. All rights reserved</string>
<string>Boot Camp Assistant</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?
