Using Bootcamp to Create Windows 7 Installer Flash Drive

So I got all upset the other day when I was setting up boot camp and I couldn’t use the ‘create windows 7 install flash drive from ISO’ option in the boot camp assistant. I felt this was unfair and unjust.

Turns out that this is disabled on non macbook air devices. Good thing, is that you can just edit the plist and enable this sucka.

1. Open Applications > Utilities > Boot Camp. Right click Show Package Contents. Click Contents. Double click Info.plist

Notice the list of other Apple products that are *allowed* to use the functionality (they are in two places in the small plist)

2. Open Applications > Utilities > System Information. Under Hardware Overview there will be a Boot ROM Version. Copy this and paste it into the duplicate string you created at the beginning.

This is simple.
