So if you want to run 2 HDDs from your Macbook, with one being for boot camp, the steps below worked for me:
- Take out the MCE optibay and put back the superdrive into its original location.
- Install the drive that you want to install boot camp into the original HDD drive bay.
- Stick the original OSX install disk into the superdrive and first install Mac OSX onto it.
Realize that you are only doing this to run the boot camp install and will be wiping it out later.
- After you have installed OSX, go through the initial setup and be at the desktop. Run the
boot camp assistant and go through with the install and have it create a partition for boot camp.
At this point, it doesn't really matter how big/small the patition is for Windows. You can adjust
and resize the partition during the Windows install process for choosing the location and partition.
- Go through finishing the boot camp assistant in OSX, stick your Windows install CD into the drive
and boot into it. This time it should work.
- Once you have completed the Windows installation and you are at the Windows desktop, stick the
Mac OSX cd back into the drive and run the setup.exe. This will install all the drivers that will
make it recognize all the Mac hardware, etc.
- Finally, take out the CD drive, swap back in the optibay, put your boot camp HDD in there, and
put back the HDD with your Mac OS.
