Hey, I recently brought an Core i7 Imac 27". It rocks. After 1 day of using snow leopard, i decided to install W7 my favorite OS by bootcamp. The installation goes quite fine but when it boots i see the boot screen (its awesome!!) and then the screen goes blank and i am left with nothing. Please help as i have spent 1 lac on it Thanks

hEY, I FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM. 1. Reboot you mac and boot from the device from which you are installing windows 2. Select to repair windows and in the command prompt type DEL C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ATIKMDAG.SYS this will delete the faulty ati driver that comes with windows. 3. Now reboot into windows 7 successfully and install all the drivers from your osx disk to get full functionality BEST OF LUCK!!!!

Try to uninstall it and get an older windows version to test out. Intergrating two platforms on one machine can be really tricky. Your computer may not support the windows seven os, seeing as how the os itself is in the final bata stages. I'm not even sure if windows seven is avaible for comersal perchuse. It may be your mac won't support it. Stick with A pc.
