    I downloaded a copy of windows 7 and now I am trying to use boot camp to install it on my mac. With boot camp, it says I need the ISO file on a flash drive in order to create a win 7 install disk. I currently do not have a flash drive. I was trying to burn the ISO to a DVD using disk utility but I keep getting an error: "unable to burn [name of ISO file] (internal error occurred)". I am using a blank DVD+R disk. Any help would be appreciated!

    Simplest approach? Go buy a flash drive. You can get 8GB flash drives for less than $10 now.

    It's possible, though, that your ISO is either damaged or in some way formatted so that Disk Utility can't read it. You could try downloading Burn instead.

    I tried downloading Burn but that did not work either. I at one point got Disk Utility to start burning for like 10 seconds (or it was doing something) and then an error occurred saying the DVD drive was unable to burn that kind of file or something like that.
