I purchased a download file of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 which when downloaded has the filename X15-65733.iso.   When opened it provides a diskimage called GRMCHPXFRER_EN_DVD on which are the files and folders for the Windows 7 installation:

autorun.inf

boot

bootmgr

bootmgr.efi

efi

setup.exe

sources

support

upgrade

 

However the Bootcamp Assistant does not recognize the X15-65733.iso or the GRMCHPXFRER_EN_DVD disk image as the Windows installer.  Do I have to rename one of these to something that the Bootcamp Assistant is looking for?
