I am trying to install Windows 8 on my Mac from
, because I am going to work on a project in C#.
I am trying to do that with Boot Camp and it requires putting the installation disk into the drive. The problem is that I can’t even open this .iso file on Mac OS X in order to burn –
it says that this image is unrecognized.
I tried in commandline with hdiutil / diskutil mount and in Disk Utility, but it also failed.
I also have access to msdn as a student of computer science, but the newest win 8 release I’ve downloaded is in weird format, that I don’t get, so I don’t know whether it can or can’t be burnt.
It contains a lot of .cab , .msi and .exe files. There is also a file runthis.cmd – I don’t think that this release can be useful on Mac OS X?
Have any of you successfully installed win 8 on Mac OS X 10.7.X ? I am looking for some hints how to do that easily and properly.
I would try the following things in order:
- Redownload the image. You may have gotten a corrupted version
- Try more than one tool when attempting to burn the disc (if the .iso downloaded correctly, this should not have to be done.
- If that does not work, simply download/copy the .iso to a different machine, and burn it from there.
Here are some buring tools that you might want to look at if whatever you are using is not working.
