- Step 4 – Create a bootable USB Drive for Windows Installation. In case that the Windows7.iso image has not been created properly you will receive the error “Non-system disk”. We recommend that you create a bootable USB Drive for Windows Installation on a Windows machine using “Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool”.
- There is a possibility when running Boot Camp Assistant that the option “Create Windows 7 install disk” does not exist. Some changes need to be made in Boot Camp Assistant in order to overcome this issue. These modifications require Xcode to be installed.
