Hi guys i have a problem, I have installed windows 7 professional using boot camp (it created a usb disk to install etc.) afterwards I installed windows 8 upgrade, And now I am taking my RMBP to apple service and they're probably gonna replace it, I want to use windows 7 in bootcamp, How can I downgrade and use my 7 license on the new bootcamp?. Will it work? Thanks again... Should I just delete my partition on bootcamp?


MacBook Pro with Retina display, Other OS

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities

     

    Just in case, I recommend you to make a backup and erase everything on the internal disk. To delete the Boot Camp partition, open Boot Camp Assistant and follow the steps.

    You shouldn't have any problem activating Windows 7 on a new MacBook Pro because, if I'm not wrong, you can activate 3 computers with one Windows 7 product key (or similar)

    You are wrong. One product key per computer.
