Hi everybody!

 

Im having a problem, Im currently trying install windows through bootcamp but I replaced my CD rom with 2nd HDD so I have no chance to boot from usb and disk is also not an opportunity. My system is :

 

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011)

2,4 GHz Intel Core i5

4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB

OS Sierra

 

I hope someone can help me out!

Cheers !!

This is what I used for my 2012 MacBook Pro if you still have the cd/dvd drive and not pitched it. One warning DVD player.app will not work VLC  will but I did find a work around kext file as the the one for the laptop is looking for an internal cd/dvd drive and cannot see the external. But it should boot off the it.

Is there any way to get it done without the external cd rom ? Im located at Europe so it wont be so easy to buy from amazon. I saw someone wrote on internet that he used app like virtualbox or something similar to install windows on partition and then somehow copyd it to hdd and it began working as a bootcamped windows. Is it a possibility ?

You might try downloading an ISO image from Microsoft they have tools to create on a usb stick.

I do can creat bootable usb but the problem is that when Im choosing the hdd to boot and i choose the blank windows one then it is completly blank there is no bios system to choose usb and then run usb or run the windows menu or anything. Just black screen :( If there could be any way to run the bootable usb or the intstaller or anything when im in the blank windows partition then that would solve the problem. Or maybe there is a way to trick macbook thinking that the bootable usb is windows dvd maybe? I have no idea how to boot intsaller from usb
