    Windows require at least 20GB space on HDD and I can see you have 20,87GB free which is not enough. It is because Windows see partition size differently so if os x shows 20 windows may see less. And bootcamp probably takes this into consideration.

    Windows 7 needs NTFS. Reformat the BootCamp partition to NTFS and install on that partition. Then use the instructions in the Apple document Boot Camp: System requirements for Microsoft Windows operating systems. Make sure you get the right drivers for your version of Windows 7.

    To make a USB installer for Windows 7 follow the steps on the web blog post
