    it is possible the installer either does not recognize it or wants the x64 version ONLY. You should be able to get that here: microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7 – Steve Chambers Feb 19 '18 at 20:42
  • I have downloaded new iso file windows 7 ultimate 64 bit only. But the problem still exists Bootcamp still shows this error. – user75758 Feb 21 '18 at 12:09

    I note that your screen cap says it needs Windows EIGHT not 7. It may be that version of Bootcamp on your Mac no longer supports Windows 7. This version says it supports windows 7: support.apple.com/kb/DL1721?locale=en_US – Steve Chambers Feb 21 '18 at 14:29
  • So how can i install windows 7 on my macbook running macos high sierra 10.3.3 – user75758 Feb 21 '18 at 16:26
