I tried everything you suggested and nothing worked. I'm really frustrated. I think that this online expert help must be for people that know a little about computers already. I may have my husband look at your answer. But like I said before, it's not that the iso image wasn't burned, it just didn't work on my computer. I plan on taking my computer into a certified Apple tech to check out what's going on. I still don't have the end result that I need. Windows 7 on my mac w/ parallels and week 1 of my classes has ended with not working software. I'm still looking for help!
It's okay. My husband and I have completed the download and installed windows 7 now. I'll accept the answer. Thanks anyway.
I tried to accept your answer but it keeps saying " Bad Request".
