    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities

     

    Windows 7 was available as a ISO file when Windows 8 hadn't been released yet, but now, you can only get Windows 8 in a ISO file, and the problem is that Windows 8 isn't compatible with Boot Camp.

     

    Another method to install Windows if your Mac hasn't got a SuperDrive is to buy an external optical drive and install Windows from a DVD. You can still buy Windows 7 in Amazon, if you haven't got it yet
