How to load up Bootcamp with an unflashed 1080. No Boot Screen
The title basically says it all. I am wanting to install Win8 through BootCamp and I can't figure out a way to load the boot screen on startup. I realize that with an unflashed Nvidia card on Mac, I can't get a boot screen, however I was hoping that it would be possible to load up bootcamp via some other method. I started the installation process of Win through a Virtual Box, however I have to complete the installation by booting up into bootcamp. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

you can't, you have to use the stock video card that came with it.

Just install normally via the bootcamp utility. It will automatically boot to the DVD and reboot on its own to finish. Than just use startup disk in system prefs, and bootcamp control panel respectively to switch back and fourth. I've done it this way and I have not had an issue with my unflashed PC card at all. If for some reason you dont want to use the bootcamp utility, pressing C with the install disc in will still boot and eventually load the display drivers. Just be sure to download the bootcamp support software so you can use startup disk in control panel.
