Hi my CD-ROM drive is broken and i want to configure a partition for windows 7 and install it from a UB, but i don’t have the bootcamp option for usb installation visible.

 

 

My OSX version is Maverick 10.9

Mac model iMac11,2

Boot rom : IM112.0057.B01

 

 

My info.plist configuration file in the bootcamp package is:
