I am attempting to install Windows 8.1 64-bit via Bootcamp on my mid-2010 15-inch MacBook Pro, but the ISOs and bootable USBs all include both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 8.1 and I receive an error message "Bootcamp only supports 64-bit Windows installation on this platform. Please use a ISO file for 64-bit Windows installation." It appears that Bootcamp is detecting the 32-bit version and ignoring the 64-bit version so I am unable to install.


I have tried editing the Bootcamp Info.plist to make my MacBook Pro (MacBookPro6,2) eligible for the 32-bit installation, but the error still appears.


Does anyone have a solution for how I can install Windows 8.1 with Bootcamp?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
