    Boot Camp assistent changes after first opened
    I wanted to install windows 7 on my mac, and opened bootcamp assistent, and made the partition, but then realized I didn't have the the windows 7 disk.

    I then un-partitioned my mac (also with boot camp assistent) and now it says in disk utility that there is one, and only one partition.

    I then got the windows 7 instillation dvd (windows 7 home premium) and went back to boot camp assistent and instead of the partition window, a window titled "Select Tasks" popped up. The three options that are in this window are "Create a Windows 7 install disk" "Download the latest Windows support from apple" "Install windows 7"
    I have gone through all of these options (esp. the last one) and created partitions through disk utility along the way, but boot camp isn't doing anything like I have read, or seen like it is supposed to do

    I have Lion

    Specs:
    27" iMac i5, 3.2 GHz, iPad 3, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, Yosemite
    How about some info on your Mac? Year, model, version of OS X?

    Late model Macs can only run Windows 7 and the disk which is used to install Windows 7 drivers must be downloaded from Apple. Everything sounds normal to me.

    Download drivers and burn to a CD. You actually printed off and read the guidelines?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
