    I am both a new user to this site, and not exactly the most competent person when it comes to this kind of stuff.. So excuse me if I do not understand something completely or step on any toes here:)

    I am attempting to make a bootable DVD of Windows 7 (64 bit) so that I can install it on my late 2011 Mac. I have searched everywhere and nothing seems to work so far. I have the iso on my desktop but every time I burn it to a dvd Bootcamp says there is no installer disk.
    I'm running Os x 10.11 (El Capitan) so I dont know of any workarounds to just use a USB to boot from but if anybody knows of any I am more than willing to try!

    In all honesty I do not know much about any of this, I'm kind of learning as I go, but I am at a loss of how to do this because nothing seems to work. Thanks for any help!

    From screenshot, your iso has been mounted successfully.
    Does this iso image an upgrade image, not full installer?

    Bootcamp assistant will make it for you. Furthermore, 10.11 can install Windows without the need of a bootable DVD or USB — an ISO file is enough.
