I downloaded the first of the iso links you sent me before called: 17514x86.iso. Okay, I'll let you know once I use Rufus/USB7ice!

Hi. Sorry I was super busy this week with exams. I hope you are still with me. I tried the Rufus method and sadly my iMac still did not recognize it. Do you by chance have the iso file for the regular Windows 7? (not the bootcamp iso you gave) Thank you.

It isn't a bootcamp iso. It is win 7 repair media iso, with extra programs and features.

You could get win7 installation media iso, but I expect you will get the same result.

Yeah... I got the same result with Windows 7. Is my hard drive damaged from my partitioning mistakes? Do I have to scrape the data off it and buy a new hard drive?
