Hey guys I have been trying to bootcamp on and off for the past month or so now. Anyway I downloaded a windows 7 x32 bit iso from Microsoft's website. I then used Burn to burn it to a disc by doing: Copy> Dragging the image in> Mount and then right clicking on the image on the desktop and clicking burn to disc. Not bootcamp itself worked fine, a bit slow, but i managed to make a 100gb partition. Now whenever I try to boot into windows, I get the dreadfull "No bootable device - insert a bootable device and press any key"

 

I know the .iso is valid because i succesfully made a Parallels V<M with it, but parallels is too slow for skyrim.

 

I think its also important to note that I have using an external optical drive, since my dad got gum in it XD.

 

 

Anyways help is VERY MUCH appreciated! If you need anymore info, just ask.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)
