Dearest Apple Community,




I'm having an issue with Boot Camp.


Just brought the new mac mini with Lion and the Thunderbolt port. I'm trying to install windows 7 via an iso file. I'm using an 8GB USB.


The error "your bootable usb drive could not be created". I then tried with a 120GB external HDD. Same error.




What could I tinker with to make boot camp work for me?



Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7)
