Boot Camp Error - Non System Disk
I am new to Macbook and I am trying to install Windows 7 on my macbook using Bootcamp. These are the steps I have taken:
1. Created a bootable Windows 7 Installation USB using "Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool" (Using an ISO)
PS: I did the above using VMware Fusion
2. Partitioned using Boot Camp
3. Installed rEFIt
Now when I restart my mac and try to install Windows 7, I get a black screen with the following error:
Press any key to reboot.
At this point none of the keys respond.

If you're only planning on dual-booting, I don't know why you'd need rEFIt, so as a start, you could try uninstalling rEFIt and see if you can install Windows then; it could be the issue.
Could also be a problem with booting a Windows installer from a USB drive. Should theoretically work, but I've never tried it myself, and Boot Camp does actually do something to EFI to get it to recognize a Windows install disc. If, for example, you just partition the disk and try to install Windows without ever running the Boot Camp setup, it won't work.

I tried uninstalling rEFIt and still does not work.
I also tried Boot Camp to install Windows 7 but it does not recognize my USB as bootable.
I followed a tutorial on youtube which tells me to install it using rEFIt

You can not install Windows from a USB or external cd drive on a Macbook Pro.
