Since your MBP shipped with an Optical drive pre-installed, BootCamp is looking for that internal Optical drive to install your Windows from. I also seem to recall that if you are burning the ISO to disc from within MacOS, that you need to set the write speed down to 4x or slower otherwise the disc is written in a way that the Microsoft boot loader won't recognize it.

but i have 2 hardrives installed into my mac, so is there a way i could dedicate 1 hardrive to windows and 1 hardrive to mac, if i use the internet optical drive?

In theory you could, but in practice, it's not feasible. The trays built for putting an HDD into the optical bay of a MBP don't generally do well with heavy usage like the OS boot volume needs. You will find that under heavy usage "pressure" that the drive in the optical bay will get random disconnects, and there are very few OSes which really behave well if their boot volume disappears while they're running.
You might be able to make it work the way you want if you use a different EFI loader like rEFIt or rEFInd, but that still won't address the issue with the bus and data drops (due to bus saturation?)...
