Hello everyone,


I am trying to Partition my Hardrive and install Windows 7.


Unlike the guides on youtube in order to partition the Hard drive windows 7 has to be installed i.e. the 'Partition' button in Bootcamp is replaced with 'Install'.


My OS is MountainLion, Bootcamp is up-to-date version 5.0.1.


I put my Fightclub DVD and it read fine, the Windows 7 Home Premium DVD however doesn't even appear in Finder.



Any suggestions are welcomed and greatly appreciated.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
