Hi, I've recently uninstalled Windows 'cause I had some virus (or got hacked dunno) via Bootcamp and followed all instructions. Now I have a problem installing it back, via BC. I create bootable USB with the same Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit image as previously and also downloaded support files for Windows. After creating bootable USB MAC restarts but nothing happens, just black screen appears and that's all. I also tried to reinstall MAC several times and still same result. I have no idea where is the problem and I start to be mad of that. I'd be grateful for any help!

Did your MBP come with the optical drive, as early 2012 models did? If so you are going to find it necessary to burn to a DVD.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Ok I bought a DL DVD, but should I burn it via BC or DU? I'm not sure now and I want to do that correctly
