    Hi guys wondering if you can help me out.

     

    I've got a 2009 imac 27" with a  dead superdrive that I'm trying to bootcamp. The plan is to do it via USB but i don't have the option in bootcamp assistant.

     

    So far I have:

     

    Edited the info.plist at the top which now looks like this: (new sections underlined)

     

    <key>32BitSupportedModels</key>

              <array>

                        <string>MacBook7,1</string>

                        <string>MacBookAir5,2</string>

                        <string>MacBookPro10,1</string>

                        <string>MacPro5,1</string>

                        <string>Macmini5,3</string>

      <string>iMac11,1</string>

      <string>iMac12,2</string>

     

    added it to the USB Supported Models at the bottom

     

              <array>

                        <string>MacBook7,1</string>

                        <string>MacBookAir3,2</string>

                        <string>MacBookPro8,3</string>

                        <string>MacPro5,1</string>

                        <string>Macmini4,1</string>

      <string>iMac11,1</string>

      <string>iMac12,2</string>

              </array>

     

     

    and also the boot rom section

     

              <key>DARequiredROMVersions</key>

              <array>

                        <string>IM41.0055.B08</string>

                        <string>IM42.0071.B03</string>

                        <string>IM51.0090.B03</string>

                        <string>IM52.0090.B03</string>

                        <string>IM61.0093.B01</string>

      <string>IM111.0034.B02</string>

      <string>MP11.005C.B04</string>

                        <string>MB11.0061.B03</string>

                        <string>MBP11.0055.B08</string>

                        <string>MBP12.0061.B03</string>

                        <string>MM11.0055.B08</string>

              </array>

     

    But still no option. Any suggestions ?

     

    Is the fact i now have boot camp assistant 5.0.2 the problem ? this thread was first started in 2011 so I'm guessing it may not apply anymore.

    Did you rename the array name to "USBBootSupportedModels" ?

    That was my problem, didn't realise that the array is was named "PreUSBBootSupportedModels" in my info.plist

     

    Once I changed that it worked.

    No.

     

    Missed that step reading through the instructions. Did that and now have the option.

     

    Thanks all and special thanks to Claian

    For Bootcamp 5.0.2 Users on OS X 10.8.3

     

    Open "Info.plist".

    Go down till you see <key>DARequiredROMVersions</key>

    Search "System Reports" in spotlight and copy your "Boot ROM Version" so mine is: MBP55.00AC.B03

    Make a duplicate of the first string under <key>DARequiredROMVersions</key> and paste your Boot ROM Version in the duplicate. MAKE SURE YOURS IS THE FIRST ONE

    Scroll down to both "<key>PreUSBBootSupportedModels</key>" and "<key>Win7OnlyModels</key>"

    Remove everything in both PreUSBBootSupportedModels & Win7OnlyModels, which as an example should be:

    <string>MacBook7,1</string>

    <string>MacBookAir3,2</string>

    <string>MacBookPro8,3</string>

    <string>MacPro5,1</string>

    <string>Macmini4,1</string>

    <string>iMac12,2</string>


    11. Save and replace the original info.plist

    12. Start bootcamp and enjoy!

    Thank you PHOENiX.505

    Can you wright te info.plist archive? I don't understand you when you say "remove everything......"

    I have this version of Bootcamp. I can create the partition, but the system don't reboot in Bootcamp, so, i cann't format the partition in NTFS.

    My info.plist is this. It's OK?

    Thank you PHOENiX.505

    Your MBP reboot in win mode with this info.plist?

    My problem is this. When Bootcamp create the partition and reboot, the system don't recognize the usbdrive and is impossible to instal windows.

    I have the bootcamp partition, but not in NTFS.

    The BC partition must be formatted as NTFS, Windows will not install if it is not.

    In fact. The big, big, big problem is the first boot, after create d bootcamp partition. Some people has uitlized rEfit, but, in my case, don't work.

    Csound1, after this reboot, you begin with the windows installation and then you format in NTFS.

    I have d Bootcamp partition created but is impossible to format it in NTFS in you can't reboot d system.

    Yes, that is how you do it.

    Test your Windows installer on another Mac or a PC, to see if it can boot any machine.

    Not sure if this would help but you can install the NTSF for Mac OS X driver and then you can use Disk Utility to format drives or partitions in NTSF! 

     

    You can grab this for free from seagate here:

    Why are you telling me this? the standard method works fine for me, maybe you meant to reply to the poster with a problem?

    This is not the problem. I want to install windows in my iMac. I can read and wright ntfs without problems.
