Hi all,


Here is my question: I have MBP early 2011 and was trying to install Windows 8 using Bootcamp but the option to install Windows is grayed out so I can’t click the box next to “Install or Remove Windows 7.” Is this because I have multiple partition on my hard disk drive? Is there anyway I can install Windows 8 using Bootcamp without deleting my partitions on my hard disk?


Few more details:

Mountain Lion 10.8.2

Bootcamp 5.0.0


Thanks for your response



MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Bootcamp 5.0
