Hi all!


I am trying to buy a copy of Windows (either 7 or 8) for my Macbook Retina so that I can Boot Camp it. However because there is no optical drive for the retina model, the OS needs to be in ISO format. Can anyone provide any suggestions as to how I can obtain a legit download of Windows? The Microsoft website appears to only provide upgrade options. Any assistance is much appreciated.

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012)
