  1. @Austin Somers no its very simple, all you have to do is hold the ‘alt’ ley
    when you bootup and choose the partition with the operating system of your
    choice. Check out this tutorial
    Let me know if you need further assistance.

  2. When windows 8 originally came out – I know that you had to buy Windows 7
    first, then upgrade, because it wasn’t a fully operating system. Am I to
    understand that with 8.1 – I can just by that and install that on my mac
    WITHOUT windows 7?

  3. At 0:15 the top part doesn’t show only the windows support and install

  4. Thank you to post that video.. it helped me a lot.
    but at last i had an error after installing the touchpad driver it is not
    work well.. it is not working good after i click the compatible setting..
    can you help me on this..

  5. I tried this several times today on my 2015 13″ macbook pro retina. When it
    gets to the task status “copying files” it takes an inordinately long time
    and seems to get stuck. Should I just wait it out, or is there some other
    possible issue? Thanks!!

  6. Do you need a valid product key code for the windows or just the iso file?
    is this a free method of getting windows and bootcamp

  7. So is the process of returning to windows 8 hard after you have returned to
    osx from windows 8?

  8. i just bought a macbook pro retina 13in 2014 and want to put windows on it.
    if i go to and buy the windows pro 8.1 for students, is that
    all i need to get? or is there more

  9. can we switch back to mac?

  10. A link to the Iso???

  11. I hold down the option key at startup and select the usb. It starts the
    setup, everything is fine untill I select advance option to install and
    select the BOOTCAMP partition. It says you need a GUID partition table to
    install but I have MBR

  12. after attempting to install for the 5th time, it still says “Windows could
    not update the computer’s boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed.”
    by the time it reaches “finishing up”! is it because I unplugged the wired
    thunderbolt internet connection during the setup? using same retina macbook
    except it’s 15 in’ Retina OS X Yosemite.
