Hello, I recently decided to install bootcamp onto my 2009 27" iMac, I have done this before for other people's computers and I thought it would be no different for my own. However, on attempt to install the Windows disk, instead of starting the installer it only gives me an error message saying No bootable device, insert boot disk then press any key. I have tried ejecting the disk and then putting it back into my disk driver but it still seems to give me the same error. I went back into my Mac using Alt(option) key on startup and then set the startup disk as the Windows installer disk but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I also tried booting the disk directly from the startup disk menu is the alt(option) key on startup but that didn't do anything different either.

 

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

 

Also if it helps my computer is a

2009 27" iMac running OSX 10.8.4

And my disk drive is an external drive because my internal SuperDrive went out.


iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
