So I am having a little issue with installing Windows 8 on my macbook.

I cannot get Bootcamp Assistant to set up Windows since my Macbook's DVD drive is shot. I am trying to install via USB.

When I launch the setup utility via refit after using Disk Utility to partition my drive, the windows installer complains about this.

"Windows Cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed on GPT Disks."

I am not sure why I keep encountering this, if anyone can give me any recommendations please let me know.


Sorry if there is a thread about this, I couldnt find one.

Hello RealEmotionX,

Rest assured that, as of writing,
1) this is the only post on the topic
2) that you and I are the only people having such problems.
