Hi everyone. I have an iMac MK142B/A and I would like to install Windows on it. There is a 'how to' guide on the site but it is asking me to insert the Windows CD but I don't have a disk drive. How do I install without a CD? Is the guide the same apart from that one point? Thanks.

Get Boot Camp Assistant from the Utilities folder.

You will need ac external drive. I would suggest a blu-ray DVD drive then you can watch movies as well. Make sure you get a Blu-Ray reader/writer. Larger capacity disks.

How do I install without a CD?

If you have access to another computer that does have an optical drive, you could copy the Windows DVD to something like a USB flash drive.
