Bootcamp not giving partition option(USB)

okay so, i have my iso, my usb, and bootcamp ready to go.

first off, i only get two options in the beginning, download windows support and install windows 7. every video/tut I've looked at they all have three options. so i click both of them, which the first time it copied those windows support files into the wrong folder. after i figured that out, and moved them to the usb, i clicked continue. when allotting the gigs, instead of there being a clickable button saying partition, it says install. I'm not sure if thats bad or anything, but I've noticed everyone else's says partition. But, i click install, says install disc not found. The iso is in my usb, along with the windows support files. I'm on a macbook pro early 2011, lion 10.7.4

im not at all a mac person, this is my girlfriends. I'm not against them, i just want my gaming freedom. i tried running vmware on this computer, but she only has 4gb ram, so i figured it'd be easier, and cheaper than expanding the memory.

and btw, I'm not just a newb asking for help, I've literally been trying different methods for week to get this game working

any help would be greatly appreciated, dragon nest is calling me...

I can't speak to your problem, but it might help to look at you tube. When I last did a bootcamp install, I noticed something I had missed that way.

I followed the instructions on this page and hacked the Boot Camp Assistant info.plist file.

The option was then available to my late 2011 MBP:
