    Try an EFI install instead of through bootcamp?

    The bootcamp assistant only partitions your drive, you must format it to NTFS during windows install, snoop around, you'll find where to do it quickly enough.

    I checked that, I did the format, and then tried to do it in disk utility, and even did the partition on fat32 and exfat, and when I tried to install windows on that partition the same message

    Are you installing via USB using a Windows 7 ISO that OS X made?

    If are using USB stick if you have a USB superdrive connected anywhere disconnect it, get BCA to remove the windows partition and start again with the optical not connected.

    EFI install - dont go there.

    I don't think you understood me correctly. The format to NTFS needs to be done by the Windows install itself, not by bootcamp.

    When you get to selecting a drive, you want to click drive options (at the lower right corner of your partition selection screen) and then format the drive to NTFS from there.
