How to install windows 8.1 using boot camp on sierra os

Im trying to install windows 8.1 64 bit on my end 2011 MacBook Pro using boot camp.

I downloaded the ISO from Microsoft file and saved it in the downloads.

i boot boot camp and she has 2 activated options are: software DOWNLOAD to apple support and the other is latest windows install or remove windows 10 or later.

I'm not sure why it says windows 10 as it is not compatible with my mac earlier. anyway I check the two options and then bootcamp download all drivers and records them in my pendrive of 32GB.

He then asks me what hard drive partition and I choose but then it says: he cannot find the installation file. I tried opening the file so it is mounted, but nothing works. I thought it's supposed to tell you what to do?

Thanks for any help

A Mac 2011 needs a physical DVD to install Windows and need to use the optical drive (CD/DVD). You cannot use an external CD/DVD drive.

Please burn the ISO on a DVD-R SL and then click the installation option only.
