7 Comments to How To Install Windows 8 on your MacBook Pro (how to)

  1. Hi this is Ragavan from India. I would like to install Windows 8.1 in my Mac. I don’t know whether this version is compatible with my mac. I am currently using Macbook pro MD101N/A mid2012 launched device with Yosemite OS. So, should I need to install Windows 8.1 directly or I should setup windows 7 followed by windows 8.1

  2. I’ve installed Windows 8 using Bootcamp however, I can’t seem to download Adobe Reader while I’m in Windows 8 and I can’t open PDFs. When I initiate the download of Adobe Reader, it takes me to step 2 of 3 ‘initializing’ but never opens a window to run the install and never goes to step 3. Is it a Windows 8 issue? My guess is that even if I download the Mac version while in Mac OS, it will not function in Windows 8. Correct?
    Thanks so much for any assistance you can provide.

  3. Can I install Windows 8 on the new MacBook Pro and only Windows 8? I do not need Mountain Lion or whichever the Mac OS is. I would think it would be “cleaner” to just have the one OS on the machine, that being Windows 8, is that true? I would also want the additional space on the hard drive from only having one OS.

      Only if your system meets the minimum requirements and you aren’t trying to upgrade and want a fresh, clean install.
