    Nice video bro. I’m glad you actually made this video clear and detailed
    but I have one question. I have the 2014 version of a macbook, so with this
    windows partition, Can I play games on Windows? For an example Battlefield
    4 and Grand theft auto 5 only allow you to play those on window and not
    mac. So with this windows partition, can I play those games?

    Hey I started follow your tutorial, but i am facing a problem. I created
    the parition fat format on the usb. i have my window 7 cd in my macbook
    pro. when i go to bootcampe assistant it keep saying “THE STARTUP DISK
    must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already
    partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows.” I can check the
    option where it says Download the latest window support from apple. but I
    cannot check or uncheck where it says install or remove window 7 or later

    So this means that my magic mouse and its keyboard that comes with iMac
    won’t do any good in the process of setting up Bootcamp and installing
    Windows? That I’d need to find non-bluetooth keyboards and mice?
