I have a macbook pro with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger which doesnt support bootcamp, which for me is not a problem because I work in windows. Can anyone tell me, if there is a way to install Windows 8 using a USB drive (without boot camp)?? Thank you in advance

Doesn't Boot Camp give you the drivers you NEED for Windows to run on Apple hardware? Or are these available in Windows drivers? Can anyone verify this? –  seanthewebber Jun 21 '13 at 8:59

@SeanWebber - The version of Bootcamp supported by OS X 10.4 does not support Windows 8. Furthermore Bootcamp is not supported by OS X 10.4 per the author's question. If the drive is bootable it should be able to just install Windows over OS X. –  Ramhound Jun 21 '13 at 11:49
    
@Ramhound: "If the drive is bootable it should be able to just install Windows over OS X." +1, but without BootCamp can you tell him where he might get the drivers for Win8 separately? –  Karan Jun 21 '13 at 23:01
