Here is how you install Windows 8 on a MAC Book Pro 2011 edition using Boot Camp -
Windows 8 Preview or final version DVD (I had final version) with a valid product key.
On your MAC Partition, Access Book Camp Assistant. It takes you through steps of creating a new partition or removing an existing partition (if you have Win 7 on your book camp partition that you want to erase and have a fresh Win 8 setup)
Make sure your Win 8 DVD is in. Boot Camp automatically launches Windows 8 setup after you have configured the partition..
Windows 8 setup screen launches and takes a while before it moves to the next installation screen (it took about 2-3 minutes for me)
Let the setup complete. On Launching Windows 8, you would notice that most of the required drivers are not installed e.g. WIFI, Track pad etc. You can install most of the driver software using your MAC OSX install DVD (I have my Leopard days DVD).
Boot camp setup from install DVD will not launch on Windows 8 as it only runs on Windows 7. You will have to navigate to the drivers folder and install the driver one by one.
After installing all software, track pad right click still didn’t work for me. I am using a Microsoft wireless mouse for navigation.
Windows 8 will most likely prompt you with a message that you need to activate Windows 8 although you would have used the correct product key during installation (it did for me). On clicking activation, it didn’t work for me.
I had to re-enter my product key and re-activate. You can do it by opening command prompt using administrator (right click command prompt icon and click ‘run as administartor’) and entering slui command.
On command prompt enter “slui 3″ and it will open the window where you can enter product key and activate the product.
I personally like the product. Hope you like it to.
