A solution I developed that worked for me I had this same problem - superdrives suck. But moving on. I searched for a solution and found none, i found a number of partial solutions and present it here for your pleasure.
The basic process is this, create partition with boot camp assistant. Trick VMware into installing windows on a physical disk. Use a free program winclone to clone the disk, delete partition, use boot camp again, restore winclone image. Windows 7, no physical media. Detailed steps as follows for macbook pro: 1. Create your boot camp partition of desired size.

(i had to defrag first, hopefully you don't) 2. Create vmware package pointing to the partition you just made. Make sure vmware is closed. Outlook for mac email type looks enormous. My steps in terminal.
Code: mkdir /Virtual Machines cd /Virtual Machines /Library/Application Support/VMware/mware-rawdiskCreator' print /dev/disk0 /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/vmware-rawdiskCreator' create /dev/disk0 3 Bootcamp ide #in the above line disk0 is the harddrive 3 is the volume of your fat32 drive from the print command before, Bootcamp is the name of the file to create and ide is the connection #This creates two files in the current directory Then create your virtual machine, specify your installation media. A mounted toast or dmg or iso disk image of a windows cd from another computer will work fine. Save the machine as let's say 'Windows7.vmwarevm' in our /Virtual Machine folder Close vmware. Open the file contained inside the windows7 package.
How to Share Files Between Mac OS X and Windows With Boot Camp. Chris Hoffman @chrisbhoffman Updated March 16, 2018. Why Do Removable Drives Still Use FAT32 Instead of NTFS?

You can right click on it and select show contents or use terminal like so. Code: ide0:3.present = 'TRUE' ide0:3.fileName = '/Virtual Machines/Bootcamp.vmdk'at this point, you can return to boot camp, select your virtual machine, select settings and add the Bootcamp.vmdk - boot the machine and install windows. Then when it's all running. We're going to use very simple and free software. Clone your boot camp drive. Then use boot camp to delete the partition and then use it again to make another one of the same size.
(possibly unnecessary step> --->)with the windows media mounted through toast I restarted, rebooted into os x and used winclone to restore the image. After this i could reboot the machine, hold down the option key and boot into windows no worries. Then you need the boot camp drivers to fix things up, but there are lots of the threads on that. Hope this helps, there may be possible free substitutes for vmware and toast, but they are what i used. Feel free to ask questions and i will give my best answers. I had this same problem - superdrives suck.
