Installing Win7 bootcamp on iMac?

Is it possible to install win7 with bootcamp on the new iMacs without an external cd drive?
If i have an win7 DVD could i in anyway rip it as an iso to an USB pen or is there another way of doing it?

Regards,
Martin

You are absolutely right! You'll have to make a bootable usb pen, then copy the content from the DVD yo have. Since your iMac is delivered without a DVD i'm guessing this is easy with the boot camp wizard.

1. Make USB bootbale (under windows that is)

2. Then copy all the content (show hidden files as well)

3. Run boot camp wizard.
