High Sierra Bootcamp Windows 7

I'm running High Sierra on my late-2009 iMac.

I finally managed to bootcamp windows 7 on my macbook pro 17' late 2011 using this method. I didnt come up with this method, but I wrote this little guide. (Tried countless of times with USB install, didnt work, and couldn't install with dvd drive because it was non functional). In macOS High Sierra and earlier, you can install Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 using Boot Camp Assistant on supported Mac models.

This guide is written for macOS High Sierra, version 10.13.x or newer. If your computer cannot run macOS High Sierra version 10.13.x, you will need to follow Apple's Boot Camp Help: Install Windows on your Mac. If you don't have access to the online guide via a different device, print a copy of the Boot Camp Installation & Setup Guide.

In the past, I've not had trouble installing Windows 7 with Boot Camp on older versions of Mac OS

But this time, I'm getting the following error before I reach the partition page:

The installer disc could not be found.

High Sierra Bootcamp Windows 7 64-bit

Insert your Windows installer disc and wait a few seconds for the disc
to be recognized.

Things is, I don't have a Windows installer disk… I downloaded an ISO for Windows 8.1 from the Microsoft website.

It might be worth also pointing out that the optical disk drive on my iMac no longer works, I'm not sure if this is related to me using High Sierra or whether the drive itself has just died.

Does the Boot Camp Assistant require me to install Windows from a DVD? I just want to install it from the .ISO file like everyone else.

I could possibly purchase an external DVD drive and then figure out how to create a bootable Windows disk using that… but that seems like a lot of effort for something that might not even work.
