    I can't get Bootcamp (6.0) to install Windows 7 on my iMac.

    -Optical drive stopped reading DVDs to read my Windows 7 disc (but CDs are fine, oddly enough). NVRAM and SMC fixes don't work.

    -Can't install via USB. I can't do a .plist edit because of the new SIP controls (and even when I disable it, and make edits, the restart fails, because Windows 7 can't find a bootable USB).

    -I had some luck using WinClone, but it's a torrent with a sketchy copy of Windows 7 that I'd rather not use

    I've ran Windows 7 on this iMac using Bootcamp, so I'm surprised its not working now.

    What gives?

    If your iMac really is 15 years old then I think I know what's wrong ;)

    A typo-- 2011 iMac.

    I don't know how to edit the subject.

    Anyone able to diagnose the issue with the iMac?
