Hi,
Is it possible to install Windows 7 on Mac without having the CD (Using Subscription or using USB) ?
Thanks,

Hi and welcome to Discussions,
installing Windows with BootCamp requires that you have a bootable Windows CD/DVD.
You can tryout these instructions http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed -100-working-guide/ to create a bootable WIndows 7 install USB-stick.
But I doubt that the installation from it works on a Mac.
