    So I read through a few threads but can't seem to find a answer that works. I can partition fine, and BOOTCAMP is on my list of devices. Any ideas on why it won't load anything once it reboots to install windows? Never had any issues before with Boot camp...

    This is on a MBA 2011, trying to install 64bit Windows 7 Ultimate, the full version.

    Was this before you went into the installer or after the windows install restarted your computer?

    After I got into the installer. Haven't seen anything of Windows 7.

    I have had this happen to me before just restart and try again. There might be another way, but when I did it I was able to just restart and try again and it worked. Also make sure you have a USB keyboard and mouse (if your on a mac mini or iMac)

    On a MBA 2011.

    Any other ideas? Is it possible that the drive is not getting enough power from the laptop?
