This is another article about windows on MAC, this time I am using SCCM 2012. And this is acctually a very quick steps.

1. To start, get those things ready:

1.1 Boot Camp package from MAC website. Find the right driver for you, download them before started.

1.2 Windows 8.1 installation disk.

1.3 SCCM 2012 Boot Media (Disk /USB)

2. First go to MAC Side, run BootCamp and make a partition. Remember the size of the partition. Choose I have already drivers and insert windows 8.1 installation disk to restart your computer.

3. In windows 8.1 installation boot up, choose Repair, Trouble shooting, advanced and open command line.

4. Run diskpart

select disk 0

list partition

select partition 3/4 (Based on partition size)

Format fs=NTFS Label="bootcamp" Quick

Assign letter = c



5. In your SCCM server task sequence , copy a normal windows 8.1 installation task sequence, make sure you disable the task of Partition/Formatting and let installation OS choose next available formated partition. and deploy it to unknown systems and make it availabe to Media and PXE only.

6. Insert SCCM task sequence boot media, restart your computer and hold option to choose boot media. Choose the task sequence you just created.

7. Once installation finished. Manually run boot camp driver,  setup, it will install all apple drivers for you.
