As my question states I am trying to install windows 7 through boot camp, version 4. I have created a live usb drive using an iso file, but unfortunately boot camp does not acknowledge it; every time I click install it says it cannot find an installation disc. Is this because it expects me to use a disc as my mac mini has a disc drive, which doesn't even seem to be an option as I have tried many times before to use a disc but the installation always fails. To my point, is it possible to use a usb drive with boot camp with my configuration?

I can't remember the precise error code I was given, but after OS X rebooted I was booted into the beginning of the windows installers, it said loading windows until I eventually got a message saying that either my disc or hard drive had failed. Which is incorrect as I made tried two different copies of the disc and my hard drive is fine, since I'm actually using it to type this.
I'll admit the iso file used was downloaded from the internet, but it works fine as I've used it several times before.

The system info states can burn dvds. Every time I attempt to insert a blank dvd it just gets spat out again. Although I have tested a DVD on it and it works fine. Not an expert on dvd drives, any suggestions? I might try an external dvd drive.
