I’m trying to install Windows on my MacBook Pro Retina using Boot Camp. I cannot find a Windows ISO image to purchase and download from Microsoft (MS).


MS no longer sells win 7 and for Windows 8 they told me I needed the 64-bit System Builder Version of Windows 8, which they don’t sell. Elsewhere, the 64-bit System Builder Version of Windows 8 no longer seems to be available.


Any suggestions or successful (recent) experiences getting the Win ISO image online? Has anyone had success installing the full commercial Win 8 ISO image after purchasing from Microsoft, rather than the System Builder version that seemed to be available a month ago, but is no longer available?


Thank you in advance for suggestions and recommendations.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)
